4 Stars for Dead of Night (Aftershock, #1) by Carlyle Labuschagne #M/F #YA #Dystopia



In a dark and desolated After Earth, love still does exist, but the cost of bearing such a flaw is death.

World War III has left Earth in utter turmoil. People’s beliefs are said to be the cause of the worldwide destruction. After The Clearing new laws are set about – to show certitude in anything besides the law is weak and chargeable as mutiny. To be illogical and have faith in religion is illegal, to be limitless is dangerous. And Illness is seen as a defect – all flaws that are inexcusable.
But to love is the greatest betrayal of all man kind. It is a fault the world has long forgotten and punishable by death, a fatal risk Aecker and Opel are fully prepared to take – because in love there is freedom. But how far can they push back before it claims their lives and of those they care about?

My Review

I am a huge fan of Dystopia Novels and I thought this author created a amazing world in this book!

Now I will say there were parts in this book where I was confused by what was going on. I just did not understand exactly why everyone was after her so much. I did like the characters in this book and the way they interacted together was really sweet. You could feel how much these two MC’s really cared about one another.

There was a lot of action in this book along with some on the edge of your seat moments too. You also meet a lot of different characters in this book too. Some you will like and some not so much.. The author really grabbed me from the start this story. Yes there were points that I was confused but all together I really liked this book!

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for a honest review!
