Genre: Young Adult, Dystopia

Orion has survived the tunnels of Outpost Five, filled with mutant creatures and dangers around every bend. She has traversed the cordons, exposed to the radiation of the flash curtain and hunted by forces that want her stopped, dead or alive. Now, with Dram by her side, she has made it to the safety of the mountain provinces, where free Conjurors live and practice their craft of manipulating matter.

But Orion's story is far from over.

With the effects of the flashfall spreading and the might of the protected city of Alara looming, Orion must travel into the hands of her enemies once again. Heart-pounding action and adventure await in this sequel to Flashfall.

I was so excited to dive into Flashtide. I had absolutely loved Flashfall and was desperate to know more about Orion and Dram. I was not disappointed.

One of my absolute favorite parts of this story is the relationship between Orion and Dram. They have developed their relationship through different experiences. First bonded as miners/subpars, friends and finally falling in love. My favorite thing about them is that they are a partnership. They have a very deep understanding of each other and the decisions they make and can also trust in those decisions. If you they have to be separated they know that they will always find a way back together. Neither of them are perfect but I love that they understand that. One of the things that I felt was important in this book was that they weren’t changing each other but each one of them changed. They had to learn to deal with what that meant for their relationship and it would either change with them or stay the same. They are definitely one of my favorite couples I’ve ever read.

The plot was great. There are so many components to this world. Despite that I got it, I did have moments where I would be confused for second. Wait this is bad but that’s bad. No wait. It was good though that was a part of the story. There were two things that I was wondering if maybe they had been cut down from an original edit because it felt like there could have been more to it. It was a hard story because it felt like I just wanted them to escape to somewhere and be happy but they feel this duty to complete what they started. Which was good, just put my heart through a couple loops.

There are some additional characters and I like how each time Orion comes across someone new. Living in a different situation, she’s learning. I think everyone we meet brings their own perspective and helps really shape the whole world. You really have a full understanding of the society and the world.

I really enjoyed this sequel to Flashfall. It had all the things needed to follow up the story and bring it around to the conclusion. It was so great to be back with the characters and I hope more people will pick this up. This is a really great Sci-Fi Dystopia.
