I’m behind already on my 2020 Goodreads Challenge but I’m pushing myself to achieve and get back on the road. That’s where today’s post comes in! Today I am reviewing Passage by Indie Gantz. This is my second book review on An Ocean Glimmer in two months which compared to previously, is a good achievement. I have got a couple on my to-read list, I just need to find the time!
Before we start my review and what I thought, let’s read the book bio for background context.
Passage? Let me tell you a little bit about it;
On Day One, Charlie Damuzi and her mute twin brother, Tirigan, are blissfully unaware of the dangerous world they live in. They may be aliens living on Earth after the extinction of humans, but to Charlie, life is pretty mundane.
On Day Two, the Damuzi family is ripped apart by a secret that forces the twins to flee the only home they’ve ever known. Determined to reunite their family, Charlie and Tirigan travel to uncharted territory in search of their salvation.
But that’s just Charlie’s side of the story.
In the future, forty days from when we first meet the Damuzi twins, Tirigan is on the move. His destination is unknown, as are the people he’s surrounded himself with, but his mission is still the same. Keep his sister safe and reunite their family.
However, as Tirigan attempts to navigate the complex bonds he’s formed with his companions, he’s forced to confront the one thing in life he has yet to fully understand.
Family. Deception. Power. Destruction.
It all begins on Day One.
Well, where do I start with this review? A good book has to have good characters, that’s exactly what Passage has! The characters are well defined and so is the setting. The world is amazing – Indie has included such rich detail and action. This is a book where you will get caught up and it will be hard to put it down. I love how Indie has included two points of view from two different time periods.
This actually works soo well! The characters are introduced so well and their stories are perfect. There’s truly a never dull moment and you’re always on your toes. The action is mixed with moments of question and discovery. Indie has done such an amazing job explaining everything throughout the whole book. It’s exciting following both Charlie and Tirigan as they try to discover themselves.
It’s not an easy task though – unclear danger hangs over their heads. They meet some interesting and intriguing characters on their travels. It’s a little different from what I normally read BUT you know what, I’m glad I picked this one up. Before I realised it, I was at the end and the book was finished! Where did the book go? This cross-genre read finished on a cliff-hanger!
Nothing is wrapped up, definitely leaving the reader wanting more. I am happy that there are two more books in the series to enjoy. Let’s see where the story goes for Charlie and Tirigan!
How about a little about the author, Indie Gantz;

Despite her passion and curiosity for the human mind, Indie left her chosen field of study to finally give voice to the many imagined minds she has created. Indie lives with her family in North Carolina. She spends her days drinking tea and clacking keys.
Please give some love to Indie Gantz and if you can not wait any longer to read it for yourself, you can buy Passage to read in Ebook (Kindle Format) or Paperback from Amazon. You can also find it on Goodreads now!
