review 1: Tisaia IS everything that it seems, and that's one of the things wrong with this book. I kept reading it, thinking that biomass would be a revelation. I guess I was thinking in terms of Charleton Heston saying something like "soylent green is people!" I didn't want biomass to be people, but I guess I was expecting more. The book was uneven. There were lots of characters, and they were sort of brought together at the end. But the first half of the book is working toward a relationship, and then the second half is just men fighting. I stopped reading and started skimming about halfway through, just because I really love dystopian novels and was waiting for it to catch my attention again. It didn't.
review 2: This book was a dystopian novel where the production of
... more a new bio-fuel and the greed of the people controlling this fuel leads to a nuclear war. The world is left divided between the people who seemingly have everything and the people who have nothing. Not everything is as it seems though and luxury has a step price. The government controls everything. They control where you go, who you see, and even who you marry. These laws are carried out by a ruthless army of nights that holds no regard for safety or well being of the innocent people they "protect". I gave this book 4 stars. I found this book hard to sink into due to all the collective viewpoints. I found myself constantly questioning why the author would use this writing style when it would be easier to empathise with a singe character. Although it was frustrating in the beginning I soon understood why the author made this choice. The book gets more interesting after the first 15% of the book which is about the time when the story started coming together and you began to understand the true ruthlessness of the government. The way the book was written helps the reader understand what life was like to live in Tisaia. I recommend this book and look forward to reading the Nicholas Sansbury Smith's second book; INTO THE GREY WASTELANDS. less

The pacing was really bad. The info dumping was painful and it was overall boring. *sighs*
Really badly written.
