ARC Review: The Denounced


This book is a dystopian novel. I had, for some reason, thought it a dark fantasy novel. Ned was an interesting character-on the one hand, I liked him, but on the other hand I found him a bit of an irritation throughout the book. His personality wasn’t exactly appealing, but nor was it the worst I’ve ever seen either.

The writing itself was very well done, the plot definitely moved at a brisk pace. I enjoyed the characters, aside from Ned, and without giving away spoilers I liked the setting and the events were interesting enough to keep reading.

I am definitely interested in book two, once it comes about, there was definitely more to be explored by the end of the first book that-again-I’m not saying due to spoilers. One of these days I will learn how to write a review without spoiling things and still have it be an appealing read. But I digress.

As a debut novel, I rate this a 3/5 stars, rounded up to 4/5 because of really wanting to know more by the end of the book.

My thanks to the author for sending me a copy of it, and I hope to read book 2 soon!
