I read and review whatever strikes my fancy and many things strike my fancy. I'm particularly fond of Young Adult, New Adult, dystopian tales, and mystery thrillers. Easily distracted by the newest book in the shelf.

Exodus - The House of Silence

Exodus - The House of Silence - J.A. Jaken I would give this 3.5 of 5 stars. The writing is very good and the characters are very interesting. It moved a little sluggishly for me in the beginning as we got to know the characters rather gradually in the context of their day-to-day lives. And there are a lot of characters, so it was a bit difficult to keep them all straight as the story is told in their alternating viewpoints. It wasn't until 2/3 into the book that the action/plot-driven element kicked in and even then it was a bit of a cliffhanger ending. All in all it was an enjoyable read, but I'm undecided at the moment as to whether I will continue with the rest of the books.
