Jigsaw is a colony on another planet that humans have inhabited. It's there that sixteen-year-old Hawkeye lives, a child prodigy who graduated college at a young age, studying the disappearance - that is, how and why did all the people in the South suddenly up and disappear leaving no trace behind? So when a ragtag group of "Neighbors" arrives at her front door thinking she knows more than she does, she has no choice but to go with them because the Northern gods have told her too, but also because she's curious...
So I feel a little bad about letting this ebook sit on my Nook for so long. The author asked that I review it back in December, but it kept getting shoved aside until late last night when I couldn't sleep. Enter Spirits of Glory, which I finished today and it did not disappoint!
Hawkeye is a massively interesting character to me. She's still a teenager, but she's already graduated college and is considered very well versed in her field. She may have bad hips that cause her a lot of pain, but that doesn't stop her! I also adored her cat and dog, which she took on her journey with her. They were a great addition to the story and had their own unique little personalities. Very cute!
Overall, I recommend Spirits of Glory because it should appeal to a huge group of readers - dystopian, fantasy, and paranormal loves alike should really enjoy this short novella.
