And dangerous carnivals A mad cow like disease called Bent Head has killed off millions Those who remain worship the ruins of NASA's space shuttles and Cape Canaveral is their Mecca Medicine and science have been rejected in favor of magic prophecy and blood sacrificeWhen traveling marauders led by the bloodthirsty Mr Capulatio invade her camp a young gi I finished Wonderblood late last night and needed to sleep on it before I could formulate my thoughts into a coherent review Firstly this is a debut novel for Julia Whicker and although this book did not blow me away I would certainly be interested in other books unrelated to this one that she may write in the future I enjoyed her writing style a lot which was not just agreeable but at times absolutely lyrical At the beginning of the book literally the first 10 to 15 pages there was some content that almost made me give it up It did not grab me at all and in fact certain elements of it turned me off It is an Adult SciFi novel that is set in a very gritty very harsh post apocalyptic wasteland Trigger warnings for abuse child rape sibling incest andor sibling molestation; I could see this causing a lot of people to turn away very uickly from this book If you can get by that it does get betterThe middle is where I feel the story is at its strongest with political intrigue and an interesting religious system Taking place in a future United States which has had its population decimated by a mad cow like disease this story picks up in the aftermath We never learn too much about the chain of events prior to the current action and I would have liked a bit history or general set up It reminded me of blend of Mad Max meets The RoadOne of the biggest disappointments for me was the lack of character development I came away feeling so blah about all of the characters There were none that I related too or even felt that I knew enough about to care for in any way If this were a start to a series I'll be honest I would not pick up the second book Additionally I didn't feel like the atmosphere was strong enough to make up for the lack of character development Overall the execution fell flatOn the positive side I did love that the characters worshiped NASA space shuttles and had Cape Canaveral as their holiest of sites That was extremely uniue Thank you so much to the publisher St Martin's Press for providing me with a copy to read and review I appreciate the opportunity
