My Rating: 3.5 stars

Sun-dwellers are foul monsters that eat a human’s flesh from their bones…or so sixteen-year-old Lyra has always been taught. To keep their citizens safe, her colony seals itself into the vaults by day.

Moonwalkers are horrible beasts that feed on the blood of men…at least, that is what Perseus was told. The only sure survival for his people is to lock themselves into their repositories each night.

Both labeled as undesirable by their respective kinds, a fated meeting in the forbidden forest offers Lyra and Perseus an unexpected chance at happiness. If they can overcome their own prejudices and discover the truth about one another before time runs out.

Can the sun-dweller and the moonwalker learn that when reality is distorted by hate and terror sometimes the only thing to truly fear is fear itself?

THE WAY LIFE WAS FOREVER – a YA short story from award-winning author, Carey Corp.

Sundwellers are nasty evil monsters that eat the flesh off of human bodies.. Or at least that’s what the main character, Lyra has been told all her life. Moonwalkers are creatures that survive off the blood of humans.. Or at least that’s what Perseus has been told his whole life.

Each night both creatures’ lands lock themselves up so the other “monsters” don’t come and attack at night. One night, Lyra’s sister wanted to go talk to a friend but the gates would be closing soon.

At one point, Lyra and Perseus are confronted with each other. Will something happen?

my thoughts 2

I probably shouldn’t even be doing a review for this since it was SO short, but hey. It’s still a book and I enjoyed it. It works right? :)

When I read the synopsis on Amazon, it sounded so interesting! Definitely a different take on a dystopian world in which everyone basically turns into a cannibal!

The reasoning as to why I gave it a 3.5/5 stars is because it was soo short and there was an insta-love. I thoroughly enjoyed this world and the characters that were introduced, I just wish the author had made this a little longer and didn’t make the relationship an insta-love.

Despite the insta-love, I really enjoyed it!!
