Hardback Book Review: Reap the Wild Wind

Reap the Wild Wind

Notes: Fixed the cover as well as the title of the review thanks to WayTooFantasy! Thanks for the assistance!

Title: Reap the Wild Wind
Author: Julie E. Cznezda
Genre: Science Fiction, Adult
Series: Book 1
Publisher: DAW
Page Count: 600
Type of Book: Hardback, Book I Own
Rated: 4/5 stars
Notes: A slow burn science fiction novel that leaves the book wide open for book two.

I liked this book. I didn’t love it, but the writing was decent, and while it seemed to take forever to finish, I also enjoyed the slow-building plot, the characters, and the world-building involved. The aliens were definitely alien enough for me to have trouble picturing them, and the world was incredible with lots of climbing trees, and avoiding nasty monsters, and just general awesomeness all around.

I really liked this book, but again, it’s not going to be one of my all time favorites I think. I can’t say why for sure, because I don’t know myself. It’s a good book, there’s plenty of action and adventure and survival to be had within, and there’s loads of science as well as fiction too. It’s got everything that a person could want. So I don’t understand why I didn’t love it-perhaps because I just wasn’t connected enough to the characters? Granted, I came to really like them about halfway through the book, when things really started getting interesting, and there was a lot more action going on…

I’m giving this a 4.5/5 stars. Perhaps book two will make me like the series even more? I hope so. I plan on requesting it at the local library, since I don’t own a physical copy. I’m glad to have read this one, and knocked it off my tbr shelf. It took me four days to get through 600+pages, something that doesn’t usually happen, but then there was a lot of backstory, describing everything, and characters to get through. I still look forward to book two, however. Let’s hope it’s even better than the first book!

Until next time,
-Pass Me That Book.
