Review: HEART Saga: The Children – Linna Drehmel
Ever since she was born, DraDonna has been different. She is an enigma, born with copper-colored hair that set her apart from the rest. While her parents and the previous Ambassador considered her unique, DraDonna always thought otherwise. Subjected to ridicule while growing up, she was always determined to show everyone that she was just like them. Sadly, people refused to be believe in her completely.
Despite the disappointments of her childhood, she did her best to fit in. A world built on perfection, she’s never had to question her existence. The HEART has provided for all her children and DraDonna’s loyalty to her beloved God has never wavered. Until now, that is.
A unique discovery catapults her and husband to discover the secrets surrounding their beloved world. While the thought of doing so is frightening, they’re determined to get to the bottom of things. To do that, they must open up their minds to the possibilities of there being something else out there aside from their own world. Armed with the resources left to them by the previous Ambassador, the pair’s discoveries are unlike anything they’ve ever known. Someone has been keeping secrets from the entire community, secrets that could prove to be their undoing.
This was a very intriguing read. The book’s pace is consistent and hooks the reader in from the moment they start reading. I found it hard to put the book down once I started reading. I did note several instances where the tense of the book wavered between past and present. Not sure if that was intentional, but it did confuse me, at times, with the sudden switches in tenses. Overall, it’s a good read.
