The Gracekeepers

The Grace Keepers

4.5 Yay for helping renew my love for fantasy novels! Another book I truly enjoyed. Fiction, fantasy, magical realism, whatever you’d like to call it, The Gracekeepers is a great dystopian novel. I liked it better than The Night Circus, which I liked very, very much. I love the author’s writing style, her descriptions of the two main societies left on earth are detailed and dreamlike.

Cons:

While the book provides a great escape, there are a few holes in the story. For example:

  • Why are the two societies split and pitted against one another?
  • How did certain mutations come about?
  • There are others, but I’m keeping this review spoiler free.

Are we left in a questioning state because that is the way of mythology/folklore? It is what it is because that’s just the way it is. Also, the ending seemed a bit rushed and didn’t have the same rhythm as the rest of the story.

The pluses:

  • It’s a beautifully interesting post-apocalyptic tale.
  • The author’s writing style is melodic.
  • The main two characters were developed admirably.

All in all I highly enjoyed getting lost in this story and definitely recommend it!
