The Urchin by Adrianne Ambrose – A Compelling Read

Yet another novel where the world has ended, I thought before reading the book. Wow, was my reaction after reading the book.The cover of the book sets the scene for a grim, dark, foreboding story that holds you throughout.

You have seen those sudden gusts of wind that scatter the leaves on the sidewalk, rearranging them and what was previous is no more. That is the gist of the book. Nick, a pilot, is rescued from a crash in barren wasteland by teenagers and his arrival at the Urchin, the last building standing in that wasteland, is the storm.

Ambrose’ skill is in taking a plot,populating it with characters, Vance and Johny for example, whose past history and current relationship give layers and depth to the story.

I am not normally a fan of dystopian fiction,however Adrianne Ambrose has me hooked to her writing now and I will be eagerly awaiting the next one.Image
