The Feral Sentence Quote:
“If you canโ€™t contribute to this society, then your presence here is useless.โ€

When Lydia Brone landed near Kormace Island, her new life begins. The narration is first person, to make you experience Lydia’s fear of the unknown. Through the author’s skill, the story remains so, to keep the readers unaware of next step. You would only learn about her history, as well as how Kormace Island came to be, when she reminisces.

Apparently, in the future, the government no longer wants to support prison inmates. Through legislation, Kormace Island is born. No one knows exactly what that means, even Lydia. We (Lydia and I) assumed that the Island is just another facility, but no…

There is nothing on that island except felons and murderers. The almost good news is that it is only female convicts, I am not sure where the male prisoners go. Lydia never mentioned that fact, because right from the first chapter, she has had to fight for her life.

I was fortunate enough to have The Feral Sentence Parts 1-4 of book 1. because this book works as a serial novella. Kind of like watching Walking Dead, only this one comes in around seventy pages of intense information dump. First of all, Lydia learns her new reality. Then she learns new skill, and how everyone has a role in the new society she landed in.

Very quickly, she learns that everyone had a shady past, and there is always a struggle to stay alive. Not only they have an enemy camp, the Island is deadly too. Mother Nature provides, she could also takes away. If you are a lover of gruesome scenes (not zombies, mind you) and thrilling events, The Feral Sentence is for you.

Verdict

I could almost forgive the cliffhangers at the end of every part, this is designed to make you come back for more after all. Although this is a dystopian fiction, the world itself it not ruined or anything, but Lydia’s world has been made so. Throughout it all, I love how The Feral Sentence could make you realize that this could be our future if humans stopped caring about one another.
