Fountain of the Earth (Book Review & Giveaway)

Hey there!

Today I will be reviewing a book called The Fountain of the Earth by H. L. Le
Roy. I read this on request but do remember all my reviews are my own honest
and truthful opinions.

This book follows Terra Vonn who lives in a destroyed
earth after it has been plagues and ruined by illness. Horrors occur all over
nowadays, and for Terra, things are about to get much worse. After the horrific
murder of her mother Terra Vonn decided to get revenge on her mother’s murders
herself. But along the way she encounters savage strangers, lunatics, cannibals
and many other dangers in this post-apocalyptic world. Terra quickly realizes
she is not cut out for this life, and yet learns she is the little that stands
between civilization and destruction.

I thought the plot for this story was great. We get to
see this new world where things are different than I’ve seen in any book. I
liked the idea of their being clans where people lived together. What I also
think this book did so well was show us some of the clan life before Terra goes
off on her adventure, which means we really get to see the scene set. Also, the
manner in which this is done keeps the book interesting, so it isn’t like
you’re pawing through a whole lot of boring information.

I have to say my favourite character in this book turned
out to be Ormek. He was always loyal, strong and trustworthy, no matter the
consequences. He was someone who tried to do things for the greater good. Beth
was also a good character, and shares much of the same traits that Ormek had –
yet they come across as completely different characters.

I think the writing style for this book was a bit too
simplistic for my liking. It was very simplistic mostly in the middle of this
book and bothered me a little, but when it came to the end of the book, like
the beginning, the style improved and I was able to enjoy it more.

Overall, I would rate this book a three stars out of
five. I recommend it to people who enjoy reading YA, and don’t mind a little
bit of gore in there too.

you be able to forgive them and treat them as a friend? Have you ever
experienced this?
