I was truly psyched to win a giveaway on Goodreads a little over a month ago, and this was one of them! You can see my review below along with some author information.
The Farthest City by Daniel P. Swenson is a sci-fi story that takes place in the far future of Earth. There’s a battle forming for Earth between humans and aliens, but the humans need to find the machines (chines) that have since disappeared in order to save themselves from the aliens (Hexi).
I haven’t read much Sci-fi and this isn’t my kind of story, but I was fairly pleased with it. I liked that there were two different plots going on with different characters throughout the book. The characters were very well developed and I was pleased with the story’s end. The author writes well and is very creative to have come up with this unique story.
I did find my mind wondering a few times as the story had a few dull moments. It felt as though there were some pieces missing from the story as some things were not explained. Being that I don’t read much sci-fi, it’s possible that this is a normal aspect I’m just not used to, maybe? I believe true sci-fi fans will really like this book.
I am interested in reading more from this author and wonder if there will be another book after this! I would definitely like to read more about Kellen, Sheemi, Abby and the other characters.
I won this in a giveaway here on Goodreads. I’d like to thank Goodreads and the author.
3.5 stars rounded up to 4****
