Today I have a review for Divine Invention by Linden Forester.
Disclaimer: I received this book free of charge in exchange or an honest and unbiased review. My opinions are my own and have not been influenced.
Most stories begin with either an unforeseen turn of events or a problem.
Krank has a problem. For centuries, the people of the island have lived on the animals and plants to be found there. It was bliss and so the population grew. It was not until very recently anyone noticed that the quantity of plants and animals had not. The delicate balance of the ecosystem has tipped and food is dwindling.
The King assigned the island’s two resident self-proclaimed geniuses, the Creators, to find a solution. The fruits of their labour ripen into the invention of the world’s first aquatic transportation device and promises to provide passage from the island to search further afield for food and resources.
So, there it is. Problem solved. End of story. Barring any unforeseen turn of events…
I have to be honest and say that initially I wasn’t sure what to make of this book. The prologue had me all sorts of confused but by the 2nd chapter I was coming to grips with it and admittedly really enjoyed it.
It was different to anything I’ve read before which was a refreshing change. I found myself feeling more and more invested in the journey both Aereon and the Creators made and how their arcs changed and grew over the story.
The writing is witty and easy to read, I enjoyed the simplicity of the characters and enjoyed finding their hidden depths.
I would highly recommend this book. It’s a solid 4 stars from me and I am looking forward to starting the next one
Linden Forster began writing at the age of seventeen. Divine Invention is his debut novel and it took seven years from the idea conjuring at the back of an English class to reaching the page.
Since then, writing has become his dream and passion. His sequel is finished and awaiting publication, while he types the third in a darkened room.
He is a lover of nature and enjoys walks in the country and often ventures out armed with a notepad and pen.
