Review- History's Prisoners by James Garmisch

I received this book for exchange with a honest review.

History's Prisoners byJames Garmisch
Released: October 8, 2016
Pages: 165
Buy it: Amazon

Moments before his execution, Huan is given a clear choice: infiltrate the Global Resistance—or die, and never see his children again.

The Alliance is collapsing, and Huan, a former economist for the worldwide government, knows how it was engineered. History has been reset, the children of dissidents re-educated, and the family unit abolished. The facade of utopia is evaporating.

Meanwhile, beyond the city walls, the separated lands are shifting from despair to chaos. Smoldering discontent is about to explode. Huan is neither a soldier nor a spy, but he will have to become both—and quickly—if he is to survive and to save the family that does not know him.

Quite a few things happened in this book.   Packed full of action it felt very exciting for most of the book.   In History's prisoners, many of the world is brainwashed into believing the utopia that the Alliance has created.   Global resistance, a group who know the truth are fighting back.     

History's Prisoners centres around a few different characters showing there perspective. Each facing a different problem.  In the end, I was fascinated to see what was going to happen to each of them.  Mostly I was interested in Doon, Huan, Ava and Reyanna.  The other characters I did not feel invested in, so I did not mind what happened to them.

One aspect was the forbidden romance of Doon and Reyanna.    Doon is a Ranger, a soldier for the Alliance and Reyanna is part of the Global Resistance.   It was written excellently, but at times it felt a little forced. Together they had some great moments, you can't help but like them.

I found that this was a great start to a series.    It was well written, great characters and had a interesting plot.  A lot of this took me by surprised and has me intrigued to find out what will happen for the next book.

I gave this book a 3.5/5.  

Have you read History's Prisoners?  Are you planning on reading it?
