Farm work isn't the worst thing in the world, as far as Noah is concerned. The daily grind of the Mill and the ever-watchful eye of the Guard and their Hoverbots aren't enough to put her off. She doesn't even mind the way her memory has slowly faded, leaving no trace of her life before being pu\t to work. But the city of Thorne demands her attention, and she's sent off with a special delivery. Upon her arrival she's met by the infamous Clover, an underground protest group with a set of noble but terrifying ideals. They see things she can't - beauty in the empty city, cruelty in its leadership - and even potential in Noah herself.
3.5 (FOUR) BOUNDLESS STARS
Clover is an interesting concept, in this new dystopian novel.
Noah has been a millworker all her life. She was taught not to question but just do. But I think that something deep inside her knew there was more. After an incident, she told to go to Thorne. A place she’s never been, a huge city full of the people that use everything they work so hard to provide.
That’s when the fun begins. There are a lot of twists to this story. There’s plenty of action. So, you are not really sure what's going to happen next. My only issue is it seemed quite long. It felt drawn out, and the end was a bit lackluster. Once it got to the heart of the story, I wanted more. I wanted to see what happens after. I’m not sure if this is going to be a series? I guess I’ll find out later. But it was worth the read.
Overall, I gave this a 4 (3.5) Boundless Stars. I was on the fence about the rating. It was an enjoyable read. But I also did not connect very much with the characters. That is one huge thing for me. But I feel that I was really able to jump into the heart of the story. I think there are many, many people who are going to love it.
