a place without shadows Reviews
[4 Stars] I really liked this second book in the Deadlock Trilogy. It had those same feeling of the first where I had about a million questions, and they were slowly answered throughout the novel. The plot in this one got weird. Way weird, but in a good way. I enjoyed seeing the world-building PT did for the world through the mirror. I was not expecting all of that after finishing the first book. I liked the characters a lot. Sophie was an awesome addition, but I missed seeing some of the characters from book 1. I'll definitely be looking up the deleted scene on his website to get to see them again before moving on to the third which I fortunately already own. If you want to read something unlike anything else you've read, I recommend this trilogy.
So much fun!
Full Review (Spoiler Free): http://pattisbooknook.blogspot.com/20...I was excited for fresh material as the mission to eradicate the enemy continues. We are introduced to a new setting called The Sanctuary in this installment, as well as some creepy new creatures to join the eery ranks of the Unfeathered. The title meaning was revealed in the second half and alluded to the ominous forest setting. We are also reunited with some old favorite characters from book one. I particularly appreciated that Hylton continued to draw strong female characters, with Sophie taking a strong position similar to Christine in the previous novel.I like how Hylton plays with the changing laws in this society. In this case, we have the former Regulated days, and now the Unregulated system. It illustrates how tenuous judicial systems can be, and how a slight imbalance can tip a society into general chaos and lawlessness. The resulting uncertainty and unease made for a suspenseful second book. Going hand in hand with the legal system is the question of morality. The younger generation only knows the rough, unfair system that was in place with Zed, and wants to uphold the prior laws at any cost...unaware of how life was before. Many older folks realize the destructive nature and are warring against the "Zed Heads". This is fun for the reader as we get to see a complex power struggle.Also, about time travel....this novel has highlighted that it can be tricky and troubling- don't think I would care to engage in it. Writers must have an interesting time outlining these types of stories, I'd love to see all the charts and notes! This was another fast-paced, action filled ending with crazy twists and turns. Looking forward to The Broken Clock, but will be sad when the trilogy ends.
Video Review(2min): https://youtu.be/6xxsNrH47KIHighlights:P.T. Hylton delivers a great follow-up to Regulation 19, and gives us more mystery, and answers some questions about this very imaginative and weird world. A Place Without Shadows takes place in three different places during three different times and Hylton is able to jump between them with relative ease during the narrative. This is a stronger written book than the first with a tighter story that weaves the different scenes together to form a very engaging read. At the core of the book is the struggle between good and evil and survival. Once again the reader needs to take a lot on faith while reading A Place Without Shadows. One of the best parts of this series is that the answers are being away from the reader. With that, though, the reader needs to just accept some things that happen, and that it'll make more sense in the future. That is not to say that there aren't a lot of answers being given in this second book because the world building that Hylton has created is becoming clearer. Solid series and I can't wait to finish it off with The Broken Clock.3/515/25 Possible ScorePlot - 3(Good)Characters - 3(Good)Setting/World Building - 3(Good)Writing Style - 3(Good)Heart & Mind Aspect - 3(Good)
I am really into this series. It has been a highly original and entertaining story. It's four stars is based on the story alone (I say this because the writing style is good, not exceptional, but definitely good, and I think this author's style will definitely improve and evolve). It's extremely well thought out and plotted. There are so many ways that this could have been a disaster (time-travel, time-stoppage, a place outside of place - which I'm still trying to wrap my head around but somehow Hylton makes it work) but not once was I confused or in disbelief. I can't wait to get to Book 3!
Very strange crazy imaginative read! Not sure how Hylton came up with the story-lines that he did.... you just have to remember to take you mind out of reality.
A book by a friend but a fantastic book nonetheless. Having had a great debut there was a lot of live up to ... and I was all ready to be more critical of PT. However the book won me over with ease.If I was to compare it to anything it would be to the Empire Strikes Back (in line with the contemporary analogies that PT has used in the series). There is a lot of setup happening and lot of complex things going on with respect to time and space. It is a very entertaining read, with a lot of content that pushes the story along at full speed. At the end of it all we are left with some answers but a lot of questions, waiting with bated breath for the next installment of this story. Knowing PT's committed and disciplined approach I am sure we will not have to wait long.
If you're looking for a fast paced mind bending series, you've found it!The second installment in the Deadlock trilogy introduces a new character, Sophie, whose entire life revolves around seeing justice handed out to her sister's killer when suddenly he disappears from the Rook Mountain prison. Sophie decides to visit Rook Mountain, a decision that will forever change her life. Curios where Jake Hinkle went after going for help? Was Zed really defeated? Will Sophie get justice for her sister? Where do The Ones Who Sing come from? This book answers all the questions, but for every question answered, two more take its place.
this sequel to regulation 19, its an interesting book to read.
