Indigo Owl captivated me from the first page. The idea of a new world being created and all who live in it need to contribute to keeping it alive feels both environmentally friendly but also incredibly dystopian.
From the mention of the different factions, I am getting some serious Divergent vibes, from the cadets being able to choose where they belong and from the parents hiding secrets and pushing their children to choose their factions. I’m not saying it is the same thing, but it feels similar.
Our protagonists are so intriguing, from the outset you can see that there is so much more to them than meets the eye, that they all have a talent for reading people. The way they connect in different ways makes for great reading.
There is never a dull moment in this book, the reader is always on the edge of their seat trying to connect the dots and understand motives. The technology is incredible, the way each cadet has their own interface and the inclusion of helpbots, Archbold has created a technologically advanced world.
Thank you so much to the team at AusYaBloggers for having me along for this tour. Indigo Owl was a great read.
