Summary

A bonus never-before-released short story by best-selling author Isobelle Carmody.

Before the apocolyptic Great White - and the regressive theology that ruled the decimated population in its wake - the city of Uropa is a gleaming metropolis devoted wholly to materialistic consumption.

When Emma arrives to meet her childhood idol and continue her research into the emergence of psychic abilities, she must adapt quickly to conceal her personal interest in the subject and protect herself from the city's opportunistic residents.

The Journey

I downloaded this short story because it was free, but I have to say I really enjoyed it. The story kept my interest and the author paints a vivid world. The story is beautifully crafted.

Brilliant additional short story

This is set before the Obernewtyn series and is a great prequel to give us information about life before the great white. I loved it and would highly recommend it to all Obernewtyn fans

So so

The narrators voice is monotone. Story sounds interesting but the execution is poor. Story is difficult to follow

The mysterious city

This story was very short but written in a lovely way. I am hoping that there is a part 2.

overall pretty good.

The subject was pretty interesting. I felt a lot of moments were over-explained but enjoyable non-the-less. I thought the author did a fine job with the reading.

Nice introduction to this author

As an American, maybe it’s no surprise that I have never heard of Isobelle Carmody, but I’m glad I discovered her. I look forward to discovering more of her SciFi novels in both audio and ebook.
