Book Review Of “The Song Of The Orphans” By Daniel Price
The end of the world was just the beginning for Hannah and Amanda Given. Saved from apocalypse by three mysterious beings, the sisters were marked with a silver bracelet and transported to an entirely different Earth—a place where restaurants move through the air like flying saucers and the fabric of time is manipulated by common household appliances.
There, the Givens were joined by four other survivors in silver: an acerbic cartoonist, a shy teenage girl, an aloof young Australian, and a troubled ex-prodigy. Hunted by enemies they never knew they had, and afflicted with temporal abilities they never wanted, the sisters and their new companions embarked on a cross-country journey to find the one man who can give them shelter.
Now, six months after their tumultuous arrival in New York City, the Silvers find themselves in more trouble than ever. Their new world is dying, and a clan of powerful timebenders believes that killing them is the only way to stop it. The U.S. government has sent its most ruthless spy agency to track and capture them. And a new pair of allies—with their own terrifying abilities—endangers the group from within.
But their biggest threat of all may be the people who first saved them: the godlike Pelletiers. They had a reason for bringing the Givens and their friends to this world. And when the Silvers learn the awful truth, nothing will ever be the same. (From Amazon)
I give this beast of a book, 4 out of 5 stars.
I was contacted by Blue Rider Press to read and review this book, and to share it with you, my wonderful followers. Now, since this is book 2 of a series, I am going to keep this review fairly simple, as I do not want to spoil anything about the first book, or this book.
Like the first book, the writing is beautiful, straight to the point, not gimmicky and fluffy. It was an incredible read and I was happy to be back with The Given Sisters, and to follow them and the others along on their journey. The world building in this book, was just as good, if not better than “Flight Of The Silvers” It can be said, that Daniel Price is a writer, who knows what he is doing. Such a creative, fresh, and exciting story line. Definitely not something you are going to read in other popular Sci-Fi books.
Honestly guys, if you get the chance, pick up both of these books, and be prepared to get sucked in! Both books are just magnificent. Even if you aren’t a fan of Sci-Fi, I think you would be a fan of both of these books! They are big books as well, this one is 752 pages.
