Indigo Cruz is a trader in the Republic, a very successful trader. The Fundamentalist Church of Divine Wrath, or Fundies as they are called by others, are staking out new territory and they need Indigo’s help. As a trader she knows how to stay off the Dallasites radar. To insure her compliance, they have captured her crew. Not knowing the purpose of the mission, she finds herself in the middle of a war for control of the Republic. Can she use this to her advantage and come out on the winning side? Will she be able to get her crew back? And, how does Soledad play into all of this?
Young’s second novel in the Dark Republic series, Indigo, neatly dovetails into the story of the first novel. While the first novel focused primarily on Don Flaco and his army, this book focuses on the Reverend Zachariah Wright and the Fundies along the same timeline. It is a well written, fast paced novel. This futuristic, post-apocalyptic tale is gritty and full of hard characters. Young’s world building skills are such that you can vividly imagine every detail.
I highly recommend this series and can hardly wait for the next installment.
5 out of 5 stars.
I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
