What secrets is Seph hiding? While this is certainly a post apocalyptic story the premise being the sky is permanently occluded by clouds it reads like a Western to me The setting is in this far future but there isn't a whole ton of world building to than that Characters4 World 3 Plot 4 Writing 4full review See my FULL review of this book on my blog along with others at shesgoingbookcrazycom All included uotes have been taken from an ARC and may not match the finished publication DNFing at 30 %Content Warning Cannibalism Death Murder Forced services ie young teens forced into working for a gang“In the Wild you don’t start a fire unless you want to risk someone finding you or you’re stupid”or you are coldor trying to fend away the critters When I first came across Ride On I was pretty excited about it To be honest anything horse related captures my attention easily I should have been a bit warier seeing how this is set in a post apocalyptic era This book very much mimics the world depicted in the movie The Book of Eli If you haven't seen it then picture a vast wasteland with Mad Max type folks terrorizing all the good folks Oh and there are cannibalsIf you have seen The Book of Eli take out the Mad Max influence and the Biblical references and replace it with a Western feel and you will have Ride On The reason why I called it uits with this book was because of the cannibalism Its nothing that I want to read about plain and simpleVulgarity 8 words counted until stopping at 30%Sexual content NoneViolence Some including discussion of cannibalismSince this is a DNF read I will not be assigning a star reviewMy Blog ¦ Bookstagram ¦ Twitter ¦ Pinterest ¦ Facebook I don’t normally do westerns but I loved Gwen’s other book so I knew I was going to read this one I loved Seph and Avery They’re both fantastic characters who are fierce and stand up for themselves They’re both level headed and loyal and the dual POV made it easy to root for them Plot wise it did feel a bit repetitive even though I was fully invested in what was happening There is a lot of riding and running and fighting and guns There were a couple of times that I was surprised at what was taking place when I turned the page Overall it was the characters that sucked me in and the writing kept me there I can’t wait to see what Gwen comes up with next Huge thanks to Sky Pony press for providing the arc free of charge Five well earned stars This beautiful book is so full of voice you'll be instantly transported to a gritty sunless world of outlaws and horses with Seph and Avery If you want loads of action and fully realized characters you can really invest in this is the book for you PHENOMENAL
