2023 Book Review: The Ashes of Hope and Hunger

Ashes of Hope and Hunger by Dawn Christine Jonckowski

YA Science Fiction, Independently Published in 2021, 270 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • There are characters here that are not good people. It’s the point, of course, but worth earning readers about. Some of these characters will make you mad.
  • You’ll want more. I mean, there is more since this is book 2 in a trilogy, but you’ll want it! 

What I Did Like:

  • I LOVE these characters! I love the way they communicate, the way they feel about each other, and the way they banter. 
  • The storyline is perfect. After the first book (which worked as a standalone) you needed something just different enough to grab your attention. This is that book. 
  • I love a good rebellion story. I didn’t expect this to be that but it really is in the best way. 
  • Big messages. There’s messages buried here about how we treat people different from us, global colonization, and even about love. It’s really well done without being heavy handed. 
  • That ending! Wow. Shocked me completely. I’m ready for book 3 now! 

Who Should Read This One:

  • Fans of space books or books about alien planets. 
  • Readers who like a little romance and a lot of realism in their Scifi.
  • Fantasy fans who aren’t opposed to space travel elements. 

My Rating: 5 Stars

  • Read this one!
