Reviewed in the United States on July 19, 2021Bereft is simply a wonderful book! It’s possibly one of the best books that I’ve read this year (117 to date in 2021) and it’s definitely the most cerebral book I’ve ever read!
JJ Blacklocke’s writing is very tight, and she’s so skilled at dialogue, you’ll find yourself transported to Tradepoint, where you’re an eyewitness to everything that takes place in the story!
It’s hard to believe that when you start Bereft, only 20 short days have elapsed since the beginning of the Tradepoint Saga… when Gredin had her first night-thought (dream) that was so revealing, and so troubling! Gredin is a young woman who is catapulted from her life of complacency, and charged to take on the mantle of leader of her people! In Bereft she finds renewed strength and somehow manages to make the personal sacrifice necessary for her people, in order to mend race relationships between her people, and the other races of traders on Tradepoint!
I’d love to be able to write a review that waxes eloquent about her trials, tribulations, friends, and enemies, but that’s not me. I can’t do that! That’s why I read books instead of writing ’em!
Get This Book!!! The trilogy is available in audio, so you can experience the masterful narration of JJ Blacklocke’s beautiful story, performed by Kate Reading!!!
