I am honoured to be part of the WOW! Women of Writing Blog Tour for Nicole Souza’s dystopian novel Sins of Our Mothers which h I read and am now reviewing.
(Please note: I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review.)
Nicole Souza has written a fascinating dystopian novel, with a unique world, created for and by women, 1500 years in the future.
This novel is full of intriguing characters, plot twists and mystery. It takes a while for us to learn who the defects really are and how this futuristic world of women works the way it does.
I was drawn to the main character Lyratelle and her struggle to help the defects. I found as well, the world-building was creative and much of the prejudice/hate towards the defects reflected what we are facing now.
This novel was an enjoyable read and I would recommend it especially to anyone who loves science fiction or dystopian novels.
It has been fifteen hundred years since the solar flare devastation of the Global Catastrophe. Due to the radioactivity in the harvesting fields, society dismisses its defective children as nothing more than flawed products of the malfunctioned seeds in the field.
But Lyratelle, a hyper-observant musical prodigy, believes these “defects” are intelligent, particularly her own sibling, the youngest child of her impervious mother. Abandoning her dream career, Lyratelle climbs the bureaucratic ladder to run the Defect Research Center, where she can safeguard the child.
With an underground team of women who share her uncertainties, Lyratelle unearths the Old History truth that womankind’s survival actually hinges on the existence of these defects.
When General Sarah Love, the city’s most powerful advocate against the defects, detects Lyratelle’s sympathy toward the creatures, she threatens the life of Lyratelle’s sibling.
Now Lyratelle’s desperate attempt to save this child endangers everyone she loves—her team, her family, even the existence of the defects themselves.
