    I received a free copy through Netgalley, in return for an honest review.Oh how hard it was to put this book down The characters were wonderful believable, great, mostly likeable, but never perfect My favourite character was Wilky, the strange , smart little brother He reminded me of my Aspie husband all the time, although the husband is a little talkative In the end, Wilky is the real hero of this book, together with Piers, although their sister is the main character.The worldbuilding was dyst [...]

    I really didn t know what to expect or if I would like it going into this book But I really enjoyed it We get a colorful and complex dystopian world that is really well written and easy to dive into The characters were great and had a great backstory and were easy to relate to.Far in the future the world is divided into groups or tribes One major one is the people in and controlling Eden A religus group that are govern their people with religion and fear But they also have secrets Big Secrets Se [...]

    That s what I m talking about This is a great epic novel Masterful world building by Jeff Altabef the colors, sounds and smells all came to life In depth character development, from the main characters of Priests, Guardians, Scientists, Kings, Princes, Artist and sister to the Mother, and Red Witches The story is fast paced with the action starting at the beginning, grabbing hold of you and not letting you go until the very end There a little something for every one religious heretics trying to [...]

  9. Sherry Fundin

    The cover for Red Death by Jeff Altabef is so appropriate for the story inside There is an Eden, so, of course, there is an apple orchard.The priests rule Eden and I immediately became suspicious They hold tightly to the archaic rules Why is that, do you think Are they afraid The Soulless, well I have my thoughts about them too.I have so many questions from the start I am intrigued and I wonder how the characters will grow and change, because I feel it coming.The writing is so descriptive, it br [...]

    WOW WOW WOW THIS BOOK WAS MIND BLOWING It was a freaking rollercoaster I m soooo happy that I could put my hand on it becuase I just love it This got me since the first page And now I m in need of the sequel Like NOW You guys need to read this book I mean it So, 800 years in the future Earth has change a ton The center of it, or at least this was what Aaliss thought, was Eden A city ruled by priest with really hard rules about what is correct and what not They are the ones blessed, the ones who [...]

  11. Ami

    RED DEATH is an incredible apocalyptic story that kept me up late and turning pages quickly so I could learn about the perfectly described world and characters that are trying to survive there I actually would have given a 4.75 rating if that was possible, because I ve only read a few books in my life that are completely perfect 88 books so far this year alone But, this one is close for me I am amazed at the many threads that are woven into this tapestry so well I am even amazed that the autho [...]

  12. Cheryl

    Despite not being fully committed in the beginning, I still found this to be an enjoyable read I like the world that the author built Very dystopian This is important for readers who are a fan of this type of genre Which I am a fan The world plays a very important part in these books Aaliss is a good, strong female heroine Her brother, Wilky brought a nice element to the story He had this innocence about him that was refreshing This was great because the story as a whole and the most of the othe [...]

    I was sent this book when I offered to read and review The Ghost King, the next book in this series I have never read anything from this author before, but volunteered to read the Ghost King as the cover looked interesting, I had not read any preamble or heard about either book from anyone, and therefore had no preconceived ideas In fact I would probably not have offered to read it if I had know what it was about, but I would have missed out on so much.I got this book three days ago, and apart f [...]

  14. Gea

    Through this book I got to experience what it s like to live in a different era But not in an annoyingly historical way More like in an awesome way There s suspense, highly contageous disease and fighting Also witches, high priests and kings Even a little bit of romance And of course the search for a cure.It can be read as a standalone but there are a few loose ends which will be in the sequel.I d definitely recommend this I received a free copy and this is my honest review.

  22. Linda

    I freely chose to review this ARC of Red Death on my own and can t wait to continue the story as Mr Altabef held me spell bound seventeen year old Aaliss was a Guardian in Eden and she killed her share of the Soulless human outside of the zone as per Jacob law, they were diseased and had red eyes to show their infection and she was told they were not human any One day she heard the high priest and her uncle plotting to kill her and her thirteen year old brother and tell the brethren that THEY w [...]

  23. Shay Williams

    My first thought when I read the blurb for this book is that it is either going to be really good or a complete washout I am happy to say that it is really good The characters just seem to come to life off of the pages I found myself rooting for Aaliss and her brother Wilky almost from the very beginning She is so grounded in reality while Wilky is a bit different He is brilliant but not too good on communicating He reminds me of some autistic kids I have met We also get a chance to meet the peo [...]

  24. Marja Coons-Torn

    If you mixed Lord of the Rings with 1984, Red Death might be a bit like what you would get I m sure that s not what Jeff Altabef did, but I deeply admire that he could plot and write this complex fantasy I am absolutely in love with the child genius Wilkie, but it is Aaliss, his sister, who plots and plans and fights for what is right Worlds intertwine and it is good that Altabef has included a cast of characters and a map of Eden He has used a few biblical names, like Eden, and Jacob, but this [...]

  25. KelticKat

  27. Isa

    This is a phenomenal novel It s a mix of Science Fiction and Midieval Times which is an extremely interesting World to get to know The worldbuilding itself is also very detailed and well written Normally, I hate different POVs but they only made this book better Also because of the fact that they split up, it was interesting to know what happened to the different tribes people Jeff Altabef is an amazing writer and I m looking forward to The Ghost King book 2 because I m sying to know what happen [...]

  28. Cheryl

    wow At first I had a hard time getting into the book, but I had just finished a steamy romance trilogy so it took my brain a bit to switch gears once fully involved, it was hard to put down even as I read the last page I was searching for , book 2 can t get here fast enough love it when available on paperback I will be purchasing for my collection

    Every now and then, I decide to read a book even though it doesn t look like anything I will enjoy Most of the time, it turns out I was right, it s not a book for me and I give it up half way through But I continue to do it because then a book comes a long, the book I was looking for, the one that goes against all my expectations, one that surprises me and makes all those false starts worthwhile Red Death by Jeff Altabef is one of those surprising for me books I thought from the cover, it was go [...]
