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.
