About the Author
Ever since I read Replication, I have been a fan of Jill Williamson’s tales. She has the ability of writing a great cast of characters set in a unique, yet fun world. What I love about her most is her ability to write “real” life like characters. Her characters are never one dimensional, their layered and I love getting to know them.
Outcast is book two of her new series, The Safe Lands. It starts off where book one ended, so I highly recommend reading it in order. If you don’t, you’ll be lost.
I liked book two more than book one, but I’m still not a huge fan of her Safe Land series. I don’t mean this in a negative way. There is a lot I appreciate in her dystopian tale; such as her characters Shaylinn and Omar and her fresh story theme on this genre. I just don’t care for this genre and I know that’s why I’m slightly disappointed with it compared to her other tales.
The Safe Lands series hold a lot of issues that our youth struggles with in today’s society on morals. Though Jill Williamson does a magnificent job on writing about these mature and ugly topics, I would still recommend this series for mature 14+ readers ONLY. With that said it’s a great tale that makes you think hard on what you would do in a world that claims to give you anything, yet holds no hope or recognition of God. I recommend giving this dystopian series a try, yet a forewarning on the mature content.
(I received an ARC of Outcasts from the publisher and the author; however, it does not influence my review. The opinions in my review are entirely my own.)
