Review: Caterpillar by Ashlyn Forge

I don’t normally just pick up sci-fi. It’s just not my thing. But when Ms. Forge sent me the link to the free read in exchange for a review, I thought I’d give it a try. I’ve started In Liam’s Wake and have enjoyed the story so far.

Starting with the second chapter, the story really takes off. I was enthralled with the characters, their world, and their struggles. Ms. Forge does a wonderful job to tellng the story from both main characters’ points of view. They examine, interact, and make decisions their world full of political and natural forces not unlike our own. The allegorical possiblities are endless with this story. I can’t even begin to imagine and label the exact factions the author might be alluding.

For writers: Being a writer also, I always like to mention how reading something helped me with my own writing. What I liked about her story was the weaving of the two POV’s, yet moving the story forward with each POV change.

Great read, worth the price and morning/afternoon/evening of reading!
