The Interrogation Of Ashala Wolf (The Tribe #1)
Will the Tribe survive the interrogation of Ashala Wolf?
"There will come a day when a thousand Illegals descend on your detention centres. Boomers will breach the walls. Skychangers will send lightning to strike you all down from above, and Rumblers will open the earth to swallow you up from below ... And when that day comes, Justin Connor, think of me."
Ashala Wolf has been captured by Chief Administrator Neville Rose. A man who is intent on destroying Ashala's Tribe - the runaway Illegals hiding in the Firstwood. Injured and vulnerable and with her Sleepwalker ability blocked, Ashala is forced to succumb to the machine that will pull secrets from her mind. And right beside her is Justin Connor, her betrayer, watching her every move. Will the Tribe survive the interrogation of Ashala Wolf?
The only reason I ended up picking this book up was because it was the only one available in my school's library.
THANK YOU, library availableness! (okay, not a real word, but whatever...)
This book is fascinating. (if you read on, this will ruin the whole entire book- trust me) The whole book everything makes sense from Ashala's view point, even while she is remembering. Ambelin (the author) convinced me that the Serpent existed. Then she explained to me that it was all an illusion. Later Ashala and Connor are putting their plan into action, and Connor dies, and then he comes back to life, and it is so amazing!
Read this book. It's AMAZING.
I love this book it has mystry behind it all even the first page got me hocked
im a young reader who will read anything but this book
this book is my third favourite.
After borrowing the book from my teacher and reading the first 4 chapters in my lunch hour I was utterly hooked on the book I really recommend it for 12-14 year olds
I just knew this would be great, and I was so right.
Basically, Ambelin Kwaymullina artfully built a tower of cards that was the plot. Then she sort of laughed evilly, and with one almighty swipe, sent it tumbling down. Well, that's what you thought. Turns out, she didn't really send it completely tumbling down - you didn't even realise how big the damn tower was, so really, once you thought you figured it all out, well, there was a lot more to destroy.
Well played, Ambellin Kwaymullina. Well played. 'Twas elaborate. Intricate. Unpredictable. The story was rich, the characters were likeable in that imperfectly perfect way. The romance was not overly cheesy and on the sidelines, just how I like it. The writing style was addictive. And just as I predicted, the combination of dystopia and Aboriginal lore was just to DIE FOR. I don't think I've read enough dystopian fiction to make this judgement, so correct me if I'm wrong, but the story really did feel like a unique take.
