"Ms. Schulz did a great job balancing the bleakness of life for much of the population with the very real emotions (fear, hope, loss) that exist for these characters; and I mean it when I say, they were palpable for me ... Amazon has this story categorized in romantic fantasy, dystopian fiction, and science fiction romance, but it’s much more than that. It’s a love story that spans years, it’s a story of redemption, it’s a story of second chances, and it’s a story of love triumphing. Well, mostly. It is a prequel to what I hope will be a long running series."
I could talk about this book for days. Seriously, it has so many points that are amazing for discussion and I think some of those discussions are necessary for this day and age. With the Me Too movement and other topics about abuse of power, this book opens a lot of questions for those willing to think about it.
Unlike most dystopian reads, even those which include romance between characters, Jake's Redemption is firmly rooted in romance and doesn't skirt the edges like most such fantasy novels. This translates to steamy sex scenes, percolating love, and a focus on interpersonal relationships that supersedes the usual focus on survival tactics and conflict ... Romance readers will relish Jake's Redemption's effective, unusual blend of dystopian sci-fi and the trappings of romantic passion, but sci-fi fans looking for something different will also appreciate the story of a world that has changed so much that lovers must find new ways of defining relationships and themselves.
