“Digesting the Words” reviews Colony East

Colony East picks up where Night of the Purple Moon left off to my utter joy. The climax of Night of the Purple Moon was full of so much suspense, that I really appreciate the inclusion of Abbey and Jordan’s return home in the novel. I was slightly disappointed that there were time skips in the book, but truly the situation never changes. No matter how much time passed by, our protagonists were still constantly in danger and constantly fighting for survival. The kids work hard with the resources they have, but there are no breaks in dystopia land and so we witness new obstacles being thrown at Abbey and Jordan.

Workaday Reads on Night of the Purple Moon

The science of the story was explained quite simply, and in a believable matter. I really appreciate that it wasn’t dumbed down for younger readers. In fact, none of the story had any of the lacking that is present in many MG/young YA stories. The characters were well developed with unique personalities, and the plot had no major holes.

Have you ever been a beta reader? Or, if you are a writer, have you tried to find beta readers to share your work with and receive feedback? As a writer, I think that beta readers are one of the most important parts of the publishing process. As a reader, you are providing an invaluable service. Yet there are many challenges for both parties.

Hezzi-D’s Books & Cooks reviews Colony East

This is an awesome second book in the series.  It picks up where the first book left off and we get a good look at what has happened in the world.  We see how the children are creating their own societies and how the adults are grooming the next generation.  There’s also something weird going on with the adults but no one seems too concerned until the end.

Mom with a Kindle – Author Interview

Do you like the spotlight or lurking in the shadows?

I am an observer. If I am at a party, I tend to stay on the sidelines, observing and listening. We picked up our daughter at the airport the other day. Airports are great for people watching. Coffee shops are a close second. I do like to meet and talk with people, but in small groups or one on one.

Colony East review by ‘I am a reader, not a writer’

Mr. Cramer’s writing is very easy to read, he has a way of developing characters that show depth and intelligence along with highlighting various facets of humanity. Besides the general plot to the story, what makes it more unique is the way he incorporates the different ways the characters react to death, sickness, hunger, challenges, betrayal and more. He did an excellent job at describing this dystopian world in a clean, age-appropriate manner. I would recommend this book to all readers that are pre-teen and older.
