The Children of Gavrilek by Julie Kirton Chandler has proven yet again why everyone needs to pay attention to Amazon’s reader. I found this book to be quite compelling and showcased a variety of interesting twists and turns. What seems to be an adventure tale is so much deeper. It not only resonates with those that want a thrilling ride, but it speaks volumes to those that appreciate science fiction, and even a touch of romance which gives this a good sex appeal amidst a story that is full of depth and character.
Chandler creates a rich tapestry of multi-layered characters and right when you’ve pegged their origins, and stories you are confronted with something new. From Audrianna’s past to Devon’s origin, you will find that there are things found in the subtext that you need to pay close attention to or you may miss out on. It’s for this reason that The Children of Gavrilek is perhaps one of the better books you’ll find that doesn’t conform to only one genre.
There is so much found here, especially within the first few pages, which are easy to read, and resonate with visual language that you may be hard pressed to believe. I know, I know, I’m waxing poetic here, but it really is something worth your attention. It takes you through the ups and downs of what it means to be human, and also throws in a science fiction spin that you may not be able to compare to others.
