H becomes possible Against this backdrop a group of young friends in the underwater Thirteenth Continuum dream about life outside their totalitarian existence an idea that has been outlawed. I enjoyed this novel I liked it very much but I didn t love it thus I cannot give it five stars My ability to love it was compromised at the very beginning when we ran into a christian like theocracy running the colony which I thought was a waste of an awesome premise Then we run into the other continuum introduced in this book and we have people who have somehow developed FTL spaceflight and have made emotions illegal and live in a militaristic oligarchy which I also thought was a waste of a good premiseWhat hooked me into continuing to read this book were the relationships developed between the characters I wanted to see where Myra and Kaleb were going and how Theo Wright figured in to the romantic tensions building up around the adolescents But frankly I had some problems with certain ideas introduced in the novel and they spoiled it for me Such asIt s been a thousand years but everyone still speaks the same type of English no one could survive the lethal radiation of a planet orbiting a neutron star how did they come up with FTL travel wouldn t it have taken a few hundred years before the Oracle of the Sea religion and its attendant political changes come into existence rather than a few decades how the Hockers survive I mean just think about it where do they get fish at the bottom of an ocean trench why do all mystic people from the brotherhood at the beginning to the Plenus to the Forgers all wear similar crimson robes how it seems that everyone other than Myra her family Kaleb and Theo seem like background decoration rather than genuine characters and why I get the feeling that all of the continuums have gone all weird or been destroyedOh I ll be reading the seuels but I ll probably have complaints about them too But don t let these stop you from reading the book

The 13th Continuum

For centuries When a shocking discovery turns the dream into a reality they must decide if they will risk their own extinction to experience something no one has for generations the Surfac. The story follows two individuals Myra and Aero from two different Continuums We get to hear both views of Myra and Aero while we are reading Myra lives below the sea in one of the Continuum s that is beginning to fail The society down there is setup in to different ranks and jobs We get to learn a lot about the different jobs and how you choice to become part of those jobsportions of society Aero is actually from a space continuum in which they are set up military style with no emotions allowed The reader gets to hear about a few of the continuum s and how they are setup I loved the beginning of the book because we are thrown into the Doom coming to the country and they now need to take the chosen ones to the Continuum s We really get to see where the author thought the world would end up I also really enjoyed reading about how the Doom came about towards the end of the book of how society got to where it was in the book Another thing I enjoyed was seeing how the two society s where setup differently but still with the same ranking type of systemI really enjoyed how the author setup the two perspectives and showed us a small portion of each of their perspective continuum s At the end the same idea comes across that power corrupts people and still causes harm 1000 years later It is like society no matter what is set up to fail I loved that in Myra s continuum they cut off all knowledge of what happened before the Doom they didn t want everyone learning from past mistakes but they again where on the same path to make these mistakes It was an interesting perspective of the author that society even restructured will go back in line to how it was beforeThings I just didn t love in the book was the beginning of the story I felt like it dragged along way to slow in the beginning almost forcing me to stop reading The action really picks up in the last half of the book and becomes a book that you can t put down The first half of the book is a lot of background information in my mind and some of it could have been cut out for the reader I would suggest this as a night time read It is easy enough to follow along in the story to read a chapter a night or even pick it up when you have nothing else to read The chapters are short enough that you could even read a few a nightI received this book from Fantastic Flying Book Club in return for an honest review This does not effect my opinion of this book

Jennifer Brody õ 0 Summary

One thousand years after a cataclysmic event leaves humanity on the brink of extinction the survivors take refuge in continuums designed to sustain the human race until repopulation of Eart. The 13th Continuum takes the young adult dystopian in a new direction giving us a world where some humanity at least knew that the end was coming and did not put all their hopes in one basket Instead they stored for lack of a better word groups of humans in different locations including space to give the human race the best chance of survivalThe contrast between the two main groups of survivors oceans space is interesting The technology displayed by those sailing the skies is imaginative and feels appropriate to the settingand lets be honest just plain cool Whereas the tight control via religious elements imparts a crushing no hope feeling for those trapped under the oceans I loved that the author could give us two clearly defined situations that managed to make the book feel at times not so much a young adult dystopian as it was a speculative science fiction readFor a debut work The 13th Continuum is great You could tell that the author knew exactly where she wanted to go She did a great job of giving you insight into both colonies She allowed you to sympathize with the main characters There are ideas introduced that relate to the real world and give readers something to dwell on For example How easily society is controlled by misdirectionHowever the beginning where you need to hook the readers and draw them into the story is a bit too bogged down It feels like the information that was dumped on the reader could have been worked into the story a bit better I found it too easy to read just a few pages and then find my attention drawn to something else By the time I d reached the halfway mark in the book whilst I was mildly interested in what I was reading I wasn t truly engaged And unfortunately if you haven t hooked your reader by that point it doesn t really matter how great the ending is it still isn t going to be a read they can enthuse about Regardless I ll be looking forward to seeing what this author does in the future now that the first book is out of the way and she can begin refining her skills and writing styleOverall The 13th Continuum isn t a book I can highly recommend personally but I can see where many other readers would enjoy it Especially those in the age range the book is intended for I d recommend giving it a try but definitely a try before you buy situation On the other hand if you re a dystopian crazed reader hey it s perfect for your collectionDisclaimer I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    VERDICT 4 Young Adult stars I am lenient with YA ratings in general since I'm not a YAOne of the better post apoc YA books I've read in a while featuring 2 very different settings sea and space 2 good protagonists female male and eventually some tense life or death momentsI can't say it was 100% plausable or realistic but as a YA post apoc adventure tale it was a fun ride most of the time If you don't mind YA tales with some of
