I really enjoyed Flashfall and couldn’t wait to get reading.
Orion has survived the tunnels of Outpost Five, filled with mutant creatures and dangers around every bend. She has traversed the cordons, exposed to the radiation of the flash curtain and hunted by forces that want her stopped, dead or alive. Now, with Dram by her side, she has made it to the safety of the mountain provinces, where free Conjurors live and practice their craft of manipulating matter.
But Orion’s story is far from over.
With the effects of the flashfall spreading and the might of the protected city of Alara looming, Orion must travel into the hands of her enemies once again.
The story had me engrossed from the beginning. It stared off with action and never stopped. Every time you think things can’t get worse for Orion Moyer proves us wrong.
Orion is a strong character and keeps fighting for what she believes no matter how bad things get. I like her relationship with Dram they obviously care deeply about each other and want to protect the other but they never hold each other back.
My main problem with the story was that their main plan that saw Orion enter the overburden seemed to be forgotten right till the end. Also I saw the twist coming and was actually wondering why it wasn’t triggered earlier. Other then that I really enjoyed Orions story and how strong her character is.
