The Star Dwellers continues the journey of The Dweller’s Saga by Estes.
The first book rocked my socks, and this segment continued that ride. While this installment was a bit predictable, it was still worth the time invested.
I love how all the stories are related and how they are building to some grand finale. I am eager to reach the final installment of this series.
This story continued the tale of Adele and Tristan, two protagonists from opposites sides of the tracks, who fall fatefully in-love and are bound by some unseen force that propels them forward. Their actions reignite a revolution and it is through their eyes we see them succeed and stumble their way to freedom.
It was just as compelling a read as the first. It is entertaining and claustrophobic all at the same time. Reading about people living underground and never seeing the sky and breathing fresh air, honestly sounds like a horrible nightmare. I think I would go insane, if I had to live under such conditions.
All I can say is this was a great read, and I am already plugging along into the next installment. Estes or his editor, still overuses the colon, but I am learning to ignore it.
If you are interested in revolutionary brave soles that seem destined for greatness despite their circumstances, then this is the story for you!

In her world there’s only one rule: Someone must die.
