Review of ‘The Dry’

Posted on

The Dry by Rebecca Nolen is a novel that you will find impossible to put down – I know, I got a free review copy, and it grabbed my attention and refused to let go until I was done. An epic story of young Elliot Sweeney’s search for his missing father, it covers the waterfront of greed, exploitation, and child slavery.

Nolen is a master craftsman who uses dialogue and description to pull the reader into an unbelievable world of enslaved children and other-worldly creatures. But, she makes us believe – the creatures and places are painted with full-bodied brush strokes that enable us to see, hear, feel, taste, and smell along with Elliot.

Fantasy at its best – old or young, this is a story that will engage every sense and then some.
