Hello Adventurers!

I have returned from a new journey! This time I set out on an adventure into the future.

I liked the idea of the story. It made me think about what I would do if I were in the same predicament as Avalon finds herself in. Waking up one hundred years into the future and finding that you've lost everyone you've ever loved is very scary, to say the least. I don't think I would have handled the situation nearly as well as Avalon did.

I really liked Avalon and Illium but I had a hard time really falling in love with them because they felt a little flat to me. Also the abrupt change of perspectives was very confusing and the dialogue did not feel natural.

The scenes were very short and were written in away that was more telling than showing. This made it hard for me to really immerse myself into the setting and feel connected to the story. I also was  a little confused by the surprise at the end and wondered if I missed anything during the story. It felt a little bit random.

But I'm very thankful to the author for allowing me to read their book. There were a lot of surprises and twists to the story that made it fun to read.
