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.


my review }

♫ ♫  

When I read Flashfall last year, I was surprised I hadn't read it sooner—here was a dystopian novel that stood out against the backdrop of so many others! Flashfall was wholly unique in its ideas and execution. It had fresh characters, a great story, and memorable characters. 

So when I got my hands on Flashtide, the sequel, I was over the moon! I was so ready for more of Orion and Dram! And I definitely wasn't disappointed.

Flashtide starts off a bit slower than its predecessor. It took me a bit of time to fully get into the story, but once I was, I just wanted to keep reading. Moyer keeps readers on their toes because at no time whatsoever is anything ever calm. Orion and Dram have to go through a lot throughout this book, and things are constantly challenging the both of them.

Through these challenges, both of their characteristics shine through. I adored Orion in Flashfall because of her determination—her ability to get things done, no matter the odds—and her loyalty. It doesn't change in the sequel! From start to finish, she's doing whatever she can to keep herself and her people alive, to keep her and Dram together. I adored reading it!

Dram was another favourite! He's just the sweetest guy, one of the best love interests I've read about in a while. His dedication to Orion is so sweet! He's also super charming and has a few funny lines throughout, which definitely added a bit of humour to the tense situations the two found themselves in.

Like I said before, a lot happens in this book. We're introduced to a bunch of new characters and put in several new settings. It was cool to see the future world Moyer created expanded! 

Moyer writes amazingly and I had a lot of fun reading this novel! Flashtide proved to be a perfect ending to the series and tied up everything nicely! I can't wait to read more of her books in the future!

favourite quotes }

Jenny Moyer's writing is absolutely phenomenal! Here are some quotes that I absolutely fell in love with while reading!

"There's a reason she named you for the stars. And not just any constellation. One of the brightest." 
pg. 72

I drop to the ground and give Dram a look. "Roran needs help, but he'd rather die than admit it. His anger might kill him before the cordon does."
Dram lifts a brow. "I don't think anger is fatal." He climbs up past me. "You're still alive." 
pg. 115

He turns me under his arm, and we laugh. We dance well together. Reading each other's body language down the tunnels has given us an innate sense of each other. I catch the sides of his head and bring him down to me. He smiles wider, still singing.
"I love you," I say. He stops singing, and his steps falter.
The noncompliants are still alive, I think, as his lips collide with mine.
pg. 155

Whatever awaits us on the other side of the cocoon, we'll face it together. I hold on tightly to the boy who never stopped holding on to me.
pg. 242

The way he says it is like no one else. He knows what it means to me—a girl named for some of the brightest stars, who lived in a place of only ash and embers, Even when I earned the title scout and the cavers stopped laughing about my name, he called me Rye—to remind me of who I really was.
pg. 331
