Obernewtyn is a safe haven for misfits but it won’t be for much longer as councilmen have become suspicious of this mysterious place in the mountains. I suppose even authors are allowed to have a down year. The ensuring chaos is fraught with danger, treachery, and intrigue as Elspeth and the Misfits try to find their place in a hostile, post-holocaust land.

The Keeping Place

The Dragon Ridge Tombs. Too many characters are being introduced and I can barely keep them all straight. While freeing prisoners in one of the abandoned Herder cloisters in Sutrium, the Misfits find Rushton.

Dragon, the wild girl Elspeth rescued from some Beforetime ruins in The Farseekersstill lies in her coma, locked in her recurring dream of the past that she had sealed off in her mind – only Elspeth now realises that Dragon’s powerful empathy-coercer talent is letting her dreams affect everyone at Obernewtyn, and no one is sleeping well.

This fantasy sci-fi series about a group of psychic, mind reading, beast speaking teens in a post apocalyptic world gets better with every book. It is a sad warning that our prejudices are not wiped out, even when most of the world is destroyed and tainted by our ambition.

I was also surprised, and disappointed, that she couldn’t see that Malik, one of the Rebel leaders, was up to something.

There’s SO MUCH going on, and while you can break it down to just Elspeths ‘main quest’ as such, in doing so you miss the opportunity to express just how wonderful these characters are, and just how beautiful, and sorrowful, and compassionate this story really is.
