By My Tower of Books

Tankborn was a breath of fresh air for me to read. So unique, I never thought ‘Oh, this is like such and such book’. It was well-written and it sucked me in from the beginning. I also have to give a shout out to the author for doing some awesomely organic world-building! If that makes sense :-) I could tell there was a rich history behind the unique setting but was never bombarded with information. I really liked that although this was a wonderfully created world, there was no learning curve. It was just very natural, seamless and easy to read.

The story is told by three different characters, one of which is male, and I enjoyed reading all of them. There was never one of those ‘Not this one again’ moments. No weaknesses there. I loved the quiet strength of the two GEN characters, Kayla and Mishalla. Their sweetly innocent love with two boys that are not GEN is seen as scandalous in their world. Yet they are pulled together despite there differences and prejudices. Both couples’ love develops in such a real and pure way that it made me enjoy these two plotlines so much.??Did I mention the seriously cool plot? Well, I can’t say much or I’d give it away, but suffice it to say that it’s genius.
