Serving Time by Nadine Ducca
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Formatting / Appearance - This book has been well-edited and well-formatted, so readers will be able to appreciate the story. After finishing the book, the formatting has no issues, but the build up that was given to the story in the beginning is lost in the end. Didn't feel as strongly about the book as I did about it in the beginning.
Content (overall theme, idea and setting) - Each character in this book leaves a mark on you. They each have so many different issues, readers will get the feeling that they are almost human. The idea and concept of the book is unique and one you won't find anywhere else. I loved the originality of the concept and look forward to reading other books by this Nadine Ducca.
What I liked - It has a good balance of science fiction, fantasy, drama and a plot that is divided between personal growth and how good battles with bad. Not to quote Robin Thicke, but the lines of good, bad and evil are definitely blurred and I expect the clarity of these lines depends on the readers.
Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
