An asteroid is headed for the Earth and threatening to make the planet uninhabitable but there’s only a few humans who will be safe and many still fighting for survival. The Golds have moved to a space station and the Silvers underground leaving the Bronzes in society fighting for the remaining spot of protection.
Maia Graystone was born to a mother who is a Gold and a father that is a Bronze, unfortunately for Maia she became a Bronze herself and has been in hiding but now she needs to take the opportunity to fight in the trials to try to save herself and her little brother Max.
Shadow Fall is one of those books that while it sounded incredibly interesting it didn’t take long to lose my interest while reading. Unfortunately for this one it started off a bit confusing trying to figure out the world and character building in the story and didn’t get much better once you became more familiar with them.
While reading this one I kept comparing it to a bunch of other young adult books out there which it seemed to kind of be sampling from. The ideas that were happening for the most part felt familiar but sort of an odd mix of a bunch of different books which just wasn’t working for me.
Overall, this one just wasn’t for me I’m afraid. It never really took on a life of it’s own other than a few times it seemed to be somewhat of trying to be a darker version of the books it reminded me of.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
