The Vessel Russell Nohelty

Description

What would you do to save your family?

Althea's world is controlled by the Five, immortal beings who get their minds transferred into new hosts every generation in order to continue the important work of saving the City from the outside world. The rest of the world is an uninhabitable wasteland. However, the City is a beacon of home, guarded by an impenetrable force field. Only the Five know the secrets of the forcefield and keeping them alive is paramount to the survival of the City.

So when one of them dies, the City goes into an uproar. What will happen to their home now?

Immediately, the remaining gods decide to transfer their consciousness into nubile bodies that can survive any attack.

Althea is one of those who volunteers for the competition of a lifetime in order to save her city and everybody she loves inside it.

So far you have my attention. Sometimes it feels like you tried too hard to mesh backstory and other information with the current story flow. Try not to get too trapped up in that. There are other ways to answer your readers supposed questions if you feel it is imperative to the current story.

Ah, yes. I fear that is present in all of my work. I do data dumps throughout. It is something you will find in lots of my stuff.

Great job with the first chapter hook, and rapid endearment to Wind's plight. Well done. Good momentum and exciting premise.

So unique and well written. I want to know "After the Bubble" because I need to know what happens! There's another great story waiting.

Hmmmm. I'm not exactly sure. It's so original.

I haven't thought about it until this moment. I like the ambiguity of the ending and how it makes people think about what happens next. The good news is that I've written a bunch more books, and you can get eight of them for free @ www.russellnohelty.com/mail.

However, if enough people clamor for it, I would consider writing a sequel. Tell Swoonreads to give me a three book deal and I'm on it :)

Amazing story had me on the edge of my seat from the beginning. Did not stop reading and wish there was more. Fantastic characters filled with depth and contradictions. Makes the reader take a hard look at themselves and decide how they would deal with the situation
