About the Author
I made silver and turquoise jewelry for almost a decade, ended up in nursing school, then took a master’s in business. Along the way I worked in construction, as a newspaper editor, a teacher, and somehow found a career working with computers.
As to my other interests, I love the outdoors, especially the Rocky Mountains. I’ve skied since high school, with one broken leg and one torn ACL to show for it. I’ve hiked and camped all my life. I love to travel, though I haven’t done enough of it. I’ve seen a lot of Russia and Mexico, not enough of England. Amsterdam is amazing, and the Romanian Alps are breathtaking. Lake Tahoe is a favorite, and someday I’d like to see Banff.
This was an amazing read that you have to check out. The world’s got mutants thanks to a great little history run from Kingsolver. The writing is great in a way that is both informative but packed with dry humor and the funny way Libby’s mind works. I love that she was so together and confident while still having those little flaws that make her human and a little more perfect, if anything. She was seriously endearing.
The plot was really good with the constant plot twists. The ending was something I hadn’t seen coming, and the open ending of her and one of the guys makes me want the next book now. It’s a definite great find that I had no issues with, and I just adored the good things she did for the mutant orphanage. One of my favorite parts of the book, honestly.
I just got the author’s other series because of how great this one was, and if they’re anything like Elizabeth, I just may be enjoying this author for the long run.
