Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway -- Anthem's Fall by S.L. Dunn


Above a horrified New York City, genetics and ethics collide as the fallen emperor and a banished exile of the same herculean race ignite into battle over the city’s rooftops. In the streets below, a brilliant young scientist has discovered a technology that can defeat them both, yet might be more terrible than either.
Set both in modern New York City and in the technologically sophisticated yet politically savage world of Anthem, Anthem’s Fall unfurls into a plot where larger than life characters born with the prowess of gods are pitted against the shrewd brilliance of a familiar and unlikely heroine.


Anthem's Fall... what can I say?... From the very beginning I was stoked to read this book, the synopsis sounds great and who doesn't need a little more sci-fi in their lives? So I got this book in the mail from the author for the tour and he wrote me a wonderful note about loving the green mountain state (where I live/ Vermont) and I was even more excited to read the book. I love when author take notice of things! (Thank you Mr. Dunn!). I finally dig into it while on my vacation and I have to admit, in the beginning I was SUPER confused about how this story would form. 

We start the book on Earth with science and genetics and within those few chapters I came to really like the POV of Kristen, whom is one of the main characters; then we read from another Earthly POV and then are whisked away to another world entirely and they are at war. I felt like my head was spinning, but then the book got interesting -- worlds colliding, characters every which way, and I really liked reading from all of the views and normally that doesn't happen. I normally like one and sigh or 'arg' when another person came up, but not with this book, everyone had an interesting story to tell in the grand scheme of the book. Dunn did a wonderful job linking all these people and what was happening to them.

I am so glad that this book lived up to my expectations for it, but I forewarn, it can be a bit confusing with the amount of characters involved and the plot is action-packed and you will get sucked in. The number of pages may be a bit intimidating and the font on the smaller side, but I think many people will enjoy this book.
