Book in Review: Death Sentence (Last City on Earth #1) by Rhiannon Paille


Cover:



Publisher:

Rhiannon Paille
 
Summary:

"May today be the day she dies," Jonathan said.

Fable Ketterling is the only immortal in the last city on earth. Thirteen hundred and five years of captivity, fame, and death.

Temperance Day is the only day Fable sees the sun, and each year, she hopes it’s her last.


Why I Read This:

Dystopian by the author of The Ferryman and the Flame, I'm in!

Thoughts:
 
Death Sentence is a very short book/novelette (about 38 pages) by one of my favourite YA indie authors - Rhiannon Paille. I loved the world she created here. It's gritty, dark, and full of intrigue. The entire story takes place in an arena where the underground society tries to kill Fable, a girl who has become immortal. There were lots of surprises and the ending had a lot of depth. I was surprised by how much could be packed into such a short story, how vivid the world appeared to me, and how much I cared about what happened to Fable. I can't wait to see where else Rhiannon Paille goes with this and find out more about the world it's set in.

My Rating:
