In Between Seasons Tour & Review

In Between Seasons - The Fall #1
by Cassandra Giovanni


What they say: In 2021 the world as we know it changed. The government collapsed, and the worst characteristics of human nature were shown as the world fell into ruins. Years after The Fall, the Tribes that were established are still at war. They still fight to keep what they pillaged, and most of all, they fight to keep their lies a secret. In a world filled with deception, nothing is as it seems.
I was born into this world.

Hunter Marks was molded into this world; a General— a person cold and harsh. A person meant to kill me.

We were told to just believe.
We were taught to never question.
We’re supposed to be robots, and accept our roles in this altered society.

Too bad Hunter and I don’t follow the rules.
And we’re a hell of a lot stronger than they ever thought possible.
They’ve been searching for the world’s deadliest weapon.
It’s me.
And I’m not following the leader any more.

Author Spotlight:

Cassandra doesn't remember a time when she wasn't writing. In fact, the first time she was published was when she was seven years old and won a contest to be published in an American Girl Doll novel. Since then Cassandra has written more novels than she can count and put just as many in the circular bin. Her personal goal with her writing is to show the reader the character's stories through their dialogue and actions instead of just telling the reader what is happening. Besides being a writer, Cassandra is a professional photographer known for her automotive, nature and architectural shots. She is happily married to the man of her dreams and they live in the rolling hills of New England their dogs, Bubski and Kanga. Cassandra Giovanni is published by Show n’ot Tell Publishing based out of Connecticut, USA.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say (review): I know there are a lot of dystopian YA stories out there now (THG and Divergence seems to have spawned many copies), but In Between Seasons is different enough to not be another clich├ęd copy and I really enjoyed Kate's story! 

Kate lives in a post apocalyptic world set after an event known as 'The Fall' (I loved the Milton-like imagery here). Kate is not satisfied living in silence and wants to know the truth about what really happened. In Between Seasons is Kate's quest for answers. 

Hunter is a soldier on a mission. A mission which changes when he meets Kate. He's not your average cocky alpha male, because he's pretty convinced about his shortcomings and doesn't see himself as worthy. I was expecting him to be the bad guy but Cassandra presents him in such a way that he never seems to be bad. I did have several questions about his motives and a few moments of doubt (perhaps I'm just overly cynical).

Although the story is dark in places, it's also really positive and hopeful. The relationship between Kate and Hunter really made the story for me because they seemed to challenge and bring out the best in each other. The secondary characters were well imagined and never seemed like fillers. I believe the next book will focus on different characters from the series.

4 Stars in my Sky!
