The Earth Dwellers (The Dwellers Saga) #4 – David Estes
Title: The Earth Dwellers
#4 in the Dweller Saga – #7 in the Dwellers/Country Saga
Author: David Estes
Genre: Dystopian/Young Adult
Finally! After several years I have finished this series. This installment, which is really the final installment of two connected series was the big finale. It had all the expected plot points and tidily summed up the entire saga.
It was entertaining and fast paced, but I am so glad it is done.
It became somewhat of a chore to get through this book. I was constantly checking how far I had read and watching the clock, which is never a good thing. The series had just gone on too long and I needed the ride to be over.
I found the ending was a bit drawn out, with the author trying to make sure all the characters individual stories were resolved. As a reader, I appreciate this, but I skimmed most of the final pages.
While I enjoyed the series as a whole, I felt there was one or two too many installments. I still would recommend it because it was different and creative, and for the most part I liked the series.
If you are a literary snob then you might not like the series, but if you like dystopian fiction that comes with an imaginative flair then you might find it fun to read.
You can find it on Amazon in Kindle and paperback format.
