How would you live if you knew the day you’d die?
Parvin Blackwater believes she has wasted her life. At only seventeen, she has one year left according to the Clock by her bedside. In a last-ditch effort to make a difference, she tries to rescue Radicals from the government’s crooked justice system.
But when the authorities find out about her illegal activity, they cast her through the Wall — her people’s death sentence. What she finds on the other side about the world, about eternity, and about herself changes Parvin forever and might just save her people. But her clock is running out. (From Amazon)
*I received this book for free, from Nadine Brandes, as part of a Blog Tour, in exchange for 100% honest review*
Okay, first let me say, I tend to stay away from heavily religious written books. They just are not my style. So for a while I struggled getting into this book, however a little over 100 pages in, I really started connecting with the characters. Parvin does kind of irritate me though. For the majority of the book, she was very weak, and all woe is me. And for someone who wanted to make a difference, I felt she needed to be the opposite. I did really love Jude and Willow, and I feel like without them in this book, it would have been very hard for me to finish. That ending though, serious cliffhanger!!
With that being Said, Nadine’s writing style, is clear and precise, and I could imagine The Wall, East, and West, and everything in between very clearly. She has developed a wonderful book world, one that I look forward to seeing how it continues. Stay Tuned for my next two reviews of “A Time To Speak” and “A Time To Rise”
“You shouldn’t be placing hope in our lives, Parvin. That’s my point. I don’t know the answers of the future, but your confidence and hope need to be in God.”
