Dwellers and Country Sagas by David Estes-The Sun Dwellers

I'm thrilled to announce that I'm going to be hosting not one, but two, posts for David Estes' Earth Dwellers Book Blast!

Keep an eye out for the kickoff post and giveaway scheduled to start September 5, 2013.  And stay tuned for my interview with David scheduled for September 10, 2013.

In the meantime, I'm going to be posting my reviews of the Dwellers and Country Saga books that culminate in the upcoming release of The Earth Dwellers. Up today is The Sun Dwellers, Book #3 in the Dwellers Saga.

The Sun Dwellers (The Dwellers #3)The Sun Dwellers by David Estes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Absolutely a must read!

The Dwellers Saga concludes with the Sun Dwellers. Adele and Tristan set off for the Sun Realm with their close friends on a mission to kill the tyrant, President Nailin. They face nearly impossible odds on what just may turn out to be a suicide mission, but the Sun Dweller army is wreaking havoc in the Moon and Star Realms and their people can't last for long.

The action and imagery in this story surpassed even my high expectations (based on its predecessors). The artificial sky with it's man made sun and diamond stars captured my imagination. The reveling citizens, the crowds, the disguises, all are vividly portrayed in a fun and fluid way. And of course, the end game is fantastic and kept me up way too late for my own good.

What's even better? You get the bonus short story featuring Adele's mom, Anna, and a young warrior she meets when the Sun Dweller attack hits the Moon Realm. David Estes has a gift for bringing strong female protagonists to life in a believable way.

If you like this book, you will adore Fire Country by David Estes. I goofed and read it before I read the Dwellers Saga (it's set in the same world), but I absolutely adored it. Its sequel, Ice Country, is already out and I can't wait to read it.
