Asylum is just the sort of book I would typically pick up. Christian Sci-Fi is one of my favorite genres and as this seemed to be a start to a new dystopian Sci-Fi universe, I was intrigued. While overall I enjoyed the book, the beginning of the book almost deterred me from completing it, however as I was doing a review of the book I wanted to take the time to read it in its entirety.
The beginning of the book was hard to get into. I did not know who was who, or really why. I’ve always liked to have a bit of knowledge about what is going on, the circumstances, but in Asylum, we seem to be baptized by fire. I felt at first that there had to be a prequel of some sorts to it, but there was not one. Once I got into Asylum, I did enjoy the story, it’s just the sort of narrative that I can picture myself continuing the series with. I like the obvious parallels in the story to our Christian experience and trusting God even in the face of adversity.
I will be reading more of the Circeae Tales as they are published. All in all for a good story, even with a rough execution, I give this book 3/5 stars. If you enjoy dystopian Christian Sci-Fi this is the book for you.
I received this book for free from BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review.
