Morgan is a strong, passionate woman who is fighting for women and girls to have equal opportunities. She is strong willed and determined to battle stereotypes and inherent privilege that makes the world more difficult for females. As her voice becomes more respected, her feminist views put her in danger from angry men who want to keep women subservient and diminish their worth. She has come from London to New York to give a lecture for her foundation, but she didn’t realize just how much of a risk she was taking.
In Ahe’ey, women are the ruling class. After a savage attack by men who raped and killed many, they have strictly enforced gender divisions. Cousins Sky, Bastion and Gabriel have large expectations and responsibilities thrust onto them. Being some of the last of the pure blood, they are expected to share their genes to keep their people strong. They are also fierce warriors protecting their people. When Gabriel falls for the human Morgan, things get very complicated. Morgan is brought to a land that could be paradise, and shown more than she could ever imagine.
This was an interesting read. At first the jumps through time and from one character to the next confused me, but it did not take long to get on track. I fell in love with the strong fierce women of this story and loved having a book that captured some of my favorite genres, dystopian, epic fantasy, with a look at today’s modern world. Tackling troubling political, moral and social struggles that are happening in the world around us and facing them head on from a fantasy point of view was brilliant. I absolutely loved this book and devoured it in one reading.
5 out of 5 stars.
Morgan is a dreamer, change maker and art lover. She is a feisty, slightly preachy, romantic feminist full of contradictions and insecurities. Morgan uncovers a world where women have the power, and where magic is no longer just a figment of her wild imagination. Sounds like a dream, but it may, in fact, turn into a nightmare.
The world of the Ahe’ey challenges and subverts her views about gender, genes, and nature versus nurture.
The strong and uninvited chemistry between her and the dashing Gabriel makes matters even more complicated. His stunning looks keep short-circuiting her rational mind.
