As the old world burned, the elite departed to colonize space in search of a new home. Most of the human species perished on earth’s surface, but a protected few remained. Many generations passed without question, but now suspicions are starting to rise. Follow the story of Maz and her best friend Hap, as a chance encounter with a stranger lures them into a mission to decide the future of humankind.
I am a person least interested in technology and science and even if you combine it with stories, I mean make it sci-fi, I am pretty sure about being disinterested in it. The sci-fi has never been my genre but I am happy to have come across ‘Killer Domes and the Chosen One’ by Gibbo Gibbs which expelled my reservations.
It is a dystopian novella set amidst ash-bots, domes, existence, and humankind. The book kickstarts with showing a warm friendship between its protagonist Maz and her best friend Hap. Their verbal exchanges amused me. And then they set on an adventurous journey to save humanity. In their exploration, they come across Mitch, the chosen one, and together they embark on a mission. What an exhilarating ride!
With no beating around the bush, the author has successfully built a narrative that is thrilling and afresh. The characters are well chosen, developed, and their attributes so meticulously articulated that you cannot help but wonder at the vibe the story gives. I really liked that the author gave ample room for each character to talk and connect with the readers. I believe that likable characters embedded in a life-like story make up for a good reading experience. Also, the idea behind the story and the props involved like domes, ash-bots, etc piqued my interest. It is an absolutely amazing book of merely 143 pages to read.
Go for this one if you like sci-fi in lucid and engaging writing!
