Review: Outcasts by Jill Williamson
Okay, I admit it, I've been sucked in to the The Safe Lands realm.
After reading the first in the Safe Lands series, Captives, I absolutely had to read the second book in the series, Outcasts. Author Jill Williamson did not disappoint in the second book of the series. It is every bit as exciting and thought-provoking as the first book.
In Outcasts, the group of "outcasts" are all still searching for a way to escape the Safe Lands. Their efforts are thwarted at every avenue by the government and corrupt officials of the Safe Lands. Their children are at risk. Their babies are being stolen. The pressures and addiction-causing environment of the Safe Lands is still slowly battering away at the morals of some of the "outcasts". They are truly desperate to leave.
I couldn't wait to read the entire book, it was quite a page-turner, but when I reached the end, I found myself a little sad that the story was over. I really became interested in the stories of the characters, their moral dilemmas and their plans to try to escape. Outcasts ends on a bit of a cliff-hanger, so I'll be eagerly awaiting the next book in the series, Rebels, which is due to release later this year. Keep the good stuff coming, Jill Williamson, I'm eager to read more!
