Firewalkers – Adrian Tchaikovsky

firewalkers

A very good novel in a young adult science-fiction after post apocalyptic scenery.
I appreciated that the post apocalyptic aspect wasn’t too much moralising, letting the place for the story to unfold and expand, as an inventive and rather creepy tale!
I also loved the three main characters, each one has a credible and nuance personality, without tiresome stereotype. The psychology was sane and believable.
A very good story, with characters in 3D a strong atmosphere – as in all the author’s books I’ve read so far.
A superb read!

Note : for now this book seems to be published (in May 2020) only as an ebook (rather too expansive, I wouldn’t have bought it) and a (very expansive too, the same) hard cover book – a signed limited edition. I hope that some accessible editions will be proposed in the future, it’d be a shame that this book which is, after all, a YA book, couldn’t be purchase and read by its supposed readers!

(I thank Netgalley and Solaris for sending me the ARC in exchange for my honest review)
