Together they seek out a small bad of rebels living in hiding who offer the promise of a better world. Their leader is a mysterious figure known only as The Reader of Acheron.

My Review

The Reader of Acheron by Walter Rhein
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amazing book!Walter Rhein is such a brilliant author and I was so intrigued by this book! the characters and the story were so creative that I couldn't put it down for a second. The story was real and gripping from beginning to end and his ideas on how reading could be a crime punished by death were both shocking and horrific. I don't ever think I would be able to live in a world were reading wasn't allowed. I would definitely be one who would fight for the right for people to read everywhere. So in this book I wouldn't live very long!...lol

In a world were reading is a death sentence and slavery is the highest order of the day. Kikkan, a slave on the run and Quillion, a mercenary and scholar seek out a band of rebels who will help them create a better world. There leader known only as the Reader of Acheron.

Walter Rhein really went all out when creating this book. He wrote a masterpiece of fiction, and I am honoured that he asked me to review it! This book has changed me forever and I know it will change all others who read it too!

I highly recommend this book! it is truly amazing and a total life changer! TBR Today
