    Building a whole world in a far future which is drastically different from the present is a big challenge easy to flop There's so much information to give the reader instantaneously Newton deftly avoids the common mistake of beginning with a lot of explanation by jumping right into the story which is a strategy that has its own pitfalls As the book opened I wasn't sure it was working what is a Dyarc? What is Luminum? but I uickly figured out enough to get through and got caught up in the story As I learned the lingo I wanted to go back and re read the beginning to see what I'd missed which is a good signYA isn't my favorite genre I think a lot of books are placed in the YA genre so as to avoid delving deeply into the big uestions In this case Newton does an excellent job of delving The primary characters are shown in their ordinary lives then struggling to work through extreme difficulty The reader gets to see them change and discover themselves with plenty of depth and emotion and with each their own distinct voices The characters in Linked are willing to go into their intense pain which is a convincing motivation to overcome their various weaknesses The one exception I noticed to this was in the case of a character who is a habitual drug user who suddenly has to uit Apparently he detoxes and gets on with life in a couple days which seemed entirely unlikely to me But by that time I liked him so much and wanted so badly to know what was going to happen next that I didn't have trouble ignoring thatIt took me a while to get all the characters straight in my head There are a lot and many have names that are unfamiliar Newton does a pretty good job of managing them all and tying together a lot of loose ends before the story is completeThe plot is complex and much compelling than I would have expected from the description This book is very much in need of a line editor I've never read a perfect ebook but this one had enough problems to detract from the reading experience It's unfortunate because otherwise the book is uite good; but the extra commas and dropped words make it seem amateurishEven so I got thoroughly caught up in the story enough that I didn't want to put it down and will look forward eagerly to the next book in this series

    This is a truly fantastic Sci Fi novel about a very uniue world I really respect this author for creating such a detailed universe that could really be turned into a movie or tv series some day There's nothing like it and those types of books are what draw me in All the characters have very cool and creative names and the places described are so uniue and different that you will turn every page hungry for details and not want to put the book down This apocalyptic read is packed with action I know the genre has been done time and time again but this is truly uniue The author doesn't leave anything out and truly paints a vivid picture of what's going on I became immersed in everything that was happening especially the action parts and I lost track of time It's a great release from your day to day It's so hard to write bout something that makes you this excited without giving spoilers away I recommend this as a family read if you have teens andor pre teens They will be excited to spend time with you if you're reading this together and they won't be able to help themselves from asking you to read with them night after night There's suspense danger action and despair on every page The Alliance is this world's government and they are an extremely powerful and dangerous organization They are responsible for practically wiping everyone out in some crazy attacks on the human settlements Different threats send the characters are blazing across the solar system and fighting for their life You can't help but become extremely immersed and root them on It's been a long time since a book like this has come along and really allowed me that blissful escape that this offers I tip my hat to the author and I highly recommend this book

    Five star story Horrible edtingI cried for the love story of Soren and Riss There is strong character and plot development That isn't the problem with this book at all There is a great uote about pain taken from Soren's time on the moon that I shared on several social sites which I appreciated since I live with chronic pain I really enjoyed a lot about this book However missing words improper punctuation diction and other editing issues are prevalent Did anyone actually read this before publication? I would love to edit this professionally; it really only needs copy editing and I love the story Had I not cried for the love story my editing irritation would have lowered the stars to a two Yep That many errors Small errors but many At a minimum fill in the missing words that can only be accomplished with a thorough re read Many readers such as myself will not tolerate this many errors no matter how good the story The first time missing words occurred I almost exited; I'm glad I didn't but SK Newton be wary you will lose readers with all these errors Final note when in doubt leave the commas out Don't use commas like you think you speak Toward the end your comma use goes crazy I'm not sure what happened The beginning usage was fine but thenGood luck

    I think I’d give this an 7 out of 10 on writing but five stars for the story With a little polishing and better editing this is an instant best seller I don’t read a lot of deep time sci fi but the blurb sounded interesting and it was free so I took the plunge With free books I don’t often go past the first chapter or two but this sucked me in It’s a book where nothing is as it seemsand even the characters aren’t who you think they are It seems like almost everyone is hiding something and story builds and builds towards this incredible explosion of tension and chaos It’s written less in the style of typical YA sci fi and like a suspenseful thriller — each chapter ending is a massive cliffieI love that the story doesn’t start X time after apocalyptic disaster like most dystopiapost apoc it’s right in the thick of it with all the messiness grittiness madness and despair It’s a world solar system? gone mad and things only get crazier and unbelievable as Helia Adlan and Soren discover their special roles in all of it And I love it Recommend for sure

    I'm usually not a fan of sci fi or speculative fiction but I'm glad I gave this book a chance The characters are well rounded and thought out making you laugh one moment and then angry the next The multitude of perspectives are easy to switch between even though they aren't clearly marked and it adds multifaceted views of the story's central plot The plot is wonderful layering together story character and subtext to create a world that is vivid and interesting with characters you can't get enough of You might think this is a book that you can pick up and read over the course of a few days or a few weeks but once you pick it up it's hard to put down Easy to read easy to get into Definitely going on my favorites list There are a few bumps along the road but nothing that's not easily overlooked and those bumps definitely don't detract from the overall narrative of the book

  6. Travesty Travesty says:

    I don't usually read science fiction but my friend gave me a heads up about this book so I decided to give it a go I am glad I did It's very well written clear and concise and an interesting plot to boot I really enjoyed reading from the teenager's perspectives it seemed relatable and much fun and easier to read than some of the other sci fi books I've tried before I don't wanna give too much away so I will stay away from discussing the story but I definitely liked it I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys sci fifantasy or who is looking for a good introduction to the genre Hope to read from this author

    At first I never intended to buy a new book for I haven't finished reading other books that I have purchased previously I was just browsing in and the first thing that caught my attention was the blue image or graphic design at the center of the book coverhahaThen I got curious saw that it's written by sk newton Seems interesting for me purchased it and now I'm starting to read it and loving every line of the story I never thought that I will be satisfied with this book I highly recommend it to people out there who want to purchase a book and read an interesting story Actually my nephew like the story too I'm going to share it with the rest of the family

  8. Austin Quinn Austin Quinn says:

    Excellent read Newton delivers in fine fashion with this thoughtful and inuisitive science fiction thriller From the first few pages on a was drawn in I found it very hard to stop reading and ended up finishing it in several days I've been very busy with school and work so that's fast for me at the moment I really enjoyed how far set in the future it is and the characters although young were well developed and likable I was excited to see a seuel is coming soon

  9. Becky Becky says:

    There is a lot to love here with three very different yet engaging protagonists a well executed plot and a vivid writing style However this book is in dire need of a copy editor missing words heterograph mixups it'sits abounded and the occasional typo were just too distracting to overlook This could easily go up a star if cleaned up a bit

  10. Anne Anne says:

    Desperately needs a good editor I think there is promise here but grammar and typos were distracting and sometimes I couldn't tell what was happening with the plot

About the Author: S.K. Newton

Writing is something I've always done since I was at least nine or ten I wrote stories about children like me in other places in the world I imagined I wrote stories about animals I chronicled my teenage years with an almost comical level of angst In college I ranted with virtual foam at the mouth about my political beliefs in every school publication and blog I could findAnd yet for so.
