Started reading this novel on their website, glad to find it here.
Love the character's developments. My favourite so far is Fiori. Love the inclusivity of the characters too without making it cheesy or "woke". The world is made up of different people, this novel reflects it well. 
The story is captivating, with lots of cliffhangers and actions. 

This dystopian novel will not disappoint. The tilt is based on actual scientific research, which gives this story a glimpse into what could be if we don't take care of climate change.


I had the chance to be a beta reader for this story so although only 21 chapters have been released so far, I have read all the way to chapter 38.

This story is like a box of puzzle that is slowly being assembled in front of your eyes. It is a very intricate story line with lots of turns and twists! I gave it a 5 stars score for the story line as it is a very well built plot line that leaves no holes.

That being said, this is a story you have to commit too and pay very close attention as you read it for every little detail matters. That's the reason I didn`t give it 5 stars for the style. If you do not pay close attention, it can get confusing at time.

The characters are very well developped and I especially like all the back stories! I didn't give it 5 stars because I feel like some people might be disapointed in the lack of strenght the MC showcases. But personally I thought it was a good representation of how a teenager would behave in a situation like this.

I am really excited to read the rest and see how the different storyline will connect. This is a very well written piece that will keep you on your toes.

Easy to get into the story, well written page turner. I am not someone who enjoys reading but this storyline makes you not want to put the book down. The story is fast paced so no lagging which keeps you wanting to know more. New chapters come out periodically. Easy to read, easy to get into, easy to get hooked.

Excellent read, easy and entertaining. Every chapter makes you want to read more. An original idea for a dystopian novel with lots of twists. As you read you also get a clear image of each character. Although it's a dark vision of the future, the author manages to keep us hoping for a better world after the tilt.


This is definitely an easy and accessible read.

The characters are compelling, the backdrop fascinating and our future ... intriguing.

The chapters so far are filled with so much backstory, one can only imagine the next step being an entire serial emerging.

Without a doubt, I am waiting on tenterhooks for the next chapters.
