The Offering

The Offering - E.R. Arroyo I would like to thank the author for providing me with a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. Doing so does not sway my judgment in any way.

In Sovereign, I instantly felt a bond with Cori. A wild child who wanted nothing more than to be free of rules and ended up being stuck in exactly the position she didn’t want to be in and even earlier than imaged. Her energy, love of hijinks, and hate of all things confining made her one to look up to. I feared that the next book wouldn’t leave me as excited as that one, but The Offerings took those fears and danced all over them like it was doing the foxtrot.

Questions were answered in this book but at the same time other questions replaced those, but in a way that allows the reader to come up with their own conclusion and be satisfied in that. Not many authors can do that without making their reader feel slighted. The storytelling is exceptional and the author doesn’t over explain nor under explain. The descriptions of the scenery allow the reader to move through this book like they are right there in the midst of the action.

I’m just completely floored by this book and its predecessor. Not many books have had just a lasting impact on me and kept me thinking about it way after the fact. Honestly, there are times I’ve had to reread my review of a book because I forgot I had read it and what it was about. This is not one of those books. This is one that I’ll be thinking about for years to come and rereading for the pleasure of it.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes dystopian fiction. I don’t care how young or old you are, because you will like, no love, it!
