The Earth Dwellers is the 4th book in BOTH The Dwellers Saga and The Country Saga. The author recommends that BOTH series are read in their entirety before reading this book (The Moon Dwellers, The Star Dwellers, The Sun Dwellers, Fire Country, Ice Country, Water & Storm Country).
Your favorite Dwellers and Country Saga characters come together in this epic seventh book!
As President Borg Lecter threatens to annihilate the Country tribes in order to expand his glass-domed empire, Adele ventures into the belly of the beast. Her only hope of survival is the consolidation of Dwellers and Country power before it’s too late.
Former demagogue President Nailin is eliminated, yet civil unrest infects every alliance. To save Adele, President Tristan faces his greatest challenge yet: unifying unfriendly Dwellers in the Tri-Realms to raise an army against Lecter. Meanwhile, Dazz must convince the Ice Country leaders to march with Siena and the Tri-Tribes on the gates of the Glass City.
The world sits on the edge of a knife. Will Adele, Tristan, Dazz, and Siena defeat Lecter and his army of killers before the Glassies wipe them off the face of the Earth?
The Earth Dwellers is the fourth book for both The Dwellers Series and The Country Saga. I honestly was overwhelmed with emotions when I started reading this book. Come the second chapter, I realized, I am reading about all the characters that I have grown to love from both book series.
A simple touch, but it speaks so much to me. It’s the way I would touch Circ—the way he would touch me. More’n a touch—a feeling. These two mean a great deal to each other, that much is as clear as the cloudless sky above us. – Siena, on Adele and Tristan
The fact that the dwellers, Tristan and Adele, were not insta-friends with the Heaters – Siena, Skye, Wilde – when they first met, just added to the excitement that I felt already building. There were so many points in the story that rendered me speechless. I even had to keep myself from swearing on some of the unexpected and unacceptable scenarios. Countless times, I was on edge, things were happening left and right, I felt like there’s a movie playing inside my head!
There are so many little moments that tugged at my heart, and I believe, if a writer can do that, then he’s done a really great job concocting his tale.
“Come back to me,” Tristan says. “Promise it.” Adele forces a smile. “Have I ever not?”
Reading different POVs was really a treat. I like multi-POV books. The way the author jumps from POV to POV was admirable. The characters with POVs have different lingos, yet the author, David, managed to switch flawlessly. That’s one of the best things about this book, too. It builds the suspense because after dropping a bomb from one character, you switch to another. Surprise after surprise, and excuse me, but I had to stop myself from reading and say, “Fuck!”. Yes, I did that. A lot. I didn’t see a lot of things coming!
“Am I gonna live?” Circ asks.
“Maybe, maybe not,” I say, hiding my smile.
“I hope it’s maybe,” he says. “I’d miss you too much.”
I touch his durty, blood-spattered cheek. “You’ll live forever,” I say. – Siena’s POV
This book wasn’t just a book, it was a journey. A journey of my fictional friends. And just like real friends, you feel sad when they leave, or are gone. So yes, you will need tissues to wipe your tears when you read this book. The epilogue just brought tears to my eyes. Dazz’s POV was…otherworldly.
Some memorable quotes from the book :
Evil wears many disguises, some that can be mistaken for beauty. – Tristan
He hugs me and I’m home. He kisses me and I’m never alone. – Adele
