The Silver Sickle by Ellie Anne – Review


Blurb:

The end of humanity will come through the Silver Sickle . . .

Farissa lives every moment with reckless abandon, for it may be her last. Any day now, the alien goddesses will harvest her and take her to the mysterious Silver Sickle, never to return. She’s accepted that. What she can’t accept is this new idea of freedom Zel has planted in her head. She’d give almost anything to be with Zel, but how can she run from her destiny if it means putting the whole kingdom in danger?

Everyone in the desert kingdom believes the goddesses are immortal, but Zel has invented a way to kill them. Now all he has to do is convince Farissa to run away with him and plant a seed of hope in her heart that she’s not destined to die. Little does he know that one seed of hope could change the course of the future.

 

My Review:

First up, the Amar are creepy.

Secondly, this book is essentially a study of humanity and the kind of behaviours that we would (and historically have) commit in the presence of ‘superior’ beings and their technology.

It’s a good story, full of suspense, terror and a pace that drags you quickly from the start to the middle of the story without realising you’ve been reading for three hours.

I would love to see more of these kinds of stories. I thoroughly enjoy them.
5/5

  1. It’s my to-read pile! The plot sounds awesome. If you liked Ellie’s book, check out Piper Bayard’s Firelands – another great dystopian story. I loved Piper’s and now need to get to Ellie’s book!
