Just my rambling, plus whatever book I've recently read!
An epic journey.
If the Seventine are released, will anyone survive?
Abigail Swish might not love her life, living in gang-ridden New York in 2035 and training to fight and survive with Compound 23. But she is grateful for a few things, especially her no-filter-between-brain-and-mouth best friend Lucy and her escape each night into a dream world far different from her own.
In fact, sometimes she lives for the fleeting moments she spends at night with the man who fuels every romantic fantasy she’s ever had. But each morning reality returns. She could just cry. But she won’t of course; tears don’t change a damn thing.
Then without any warning, a month before her eighteenth birthday, everything does change. A guardian finds her. He explains, in a strangely familiar accent, that she was stashed on Earth for safekeeping and has been lost to her family ever since. And it is time to return home. To the First World; a land of unimagined beauty.
Abigail and Lucy find themselves escaping New York, ending up on another planet and traversing through an unforgiving wilderness. Yeah, because that sort of thing just happens every day. Luckily an unexpected saviour arrives; the man from her dream-world. Brace is six-and-a-half feet of gorgeous perfectness, wrapped in an arrogance like no other. Unable to trust his assistance, and unsure which of her instincts to follow - kiss him or punch him in the mouth - Abigail eventually accepts his help to find her family.
And what a family. Enter Josian, her father; larger than life and apparently not even human. He is Walker, a planet-less race revered as gods, causing mischief and mayhem through-out this star-system. Unfortunately, there is no time for a cosy reunion, since no one explained that by returning to First World her half-Walker genetics would act as a catalyst setting forth a chain of events which could spell disaster for not only her existence but that of all worlds.
First World is book one in the Walker Saga, a seven-book paranormal fantasy series.
From a post-apocalyptic world on earth to a new world that is billions of years old - First World literally takes you on an adventure as Abby tries to figure just who she is, why she's been dreaming of Mr Hotness himself, why her parents abandoned her, and what she has to do next.
This is a gritty story that is lightened by moments of hilarity and sarcasm between Abby and Luce. These two are fantastic as they spark off against each other. There is enough world building to satisfy me, whilst still leaving me wanting more in the books yet to be read. I love the characters, and have no shame in admitting I want to see more of Quarn. I am hoping the Brace-Abby-Luca story gets sorted out as triangles are not my favourite, but I will wait and see.
For a funny story that will take you off-planet, I have no hesitation in recommending this!
