In a dystopian future, an assassin must choose to fulfill a final contract or keep the love of her life alive.
Yearning for a normal life, assassin Karmen-Marie has had enough. Enough of surviving contracted hits, and enough of the post-apocalyptic world. Forced to take one last job, Karma sets out across the frozen landscape of Earth.
Rea MacBain’s job is to ensure the safety of Earth’s precious few water purification plants. He believes his abusive past must stay buried under the snow that encases his domain.
A single bullet will send Karma and Rea in a direction they’d never expected. Ice cold assassin’s blood drives the woman sent to kill him, yet it ignites the fire which thaws Rea’s heart.
1:05 A.M. is a poignant, thrilling, dystopian novel that is stand out. 1:05 A.M. surprised me with its unique post-apocalyptic story; I have been bored of late of generic dystopian novels but 1:05 A.M. is different. It features all the elements that make a great dystopian book as well as excellent elements of love and suspense and that is why 1:05 A.M. is one of my favorite dystopian reads of the year.
1:05 A.M. is an intriguing, moving novel that takes the reader on an adventure with the protagonist of the novel, Rea, and Karma. We follow these two as they battle harsh situations in a world that is covered in chaos. Chaos has ensued ever since a meteor struck the planet and this meteor has caused a new ice age. The ice age and the survival of the characters we follow is the premise of this thrilling, intriguing novel.
The story of 1:05 A.M. is more than your typical dystopian novel, it is more than this because it has a wide array of themes that all perfectly blend with each other to make one brilliant book. 1:05 A.M. encompasses danger, deceit, action, betrayal heartbreak and so many more poignant themes that I love in a story. I adored how the author of this brilliant novel, C.M. Moore combined different ideas into this novel; I admire reading a book that takes me on a roller coaster of emotions through the themes and 1:05 A.M. indeed done this. I loved every moment of this book; it captured my attention from the very first page thanks to its striking literature as well as its characters dialogue which leap off the page.
Rea and Karma are the perfect dystopian characters, in my opinion, they are compelling as well as striking, and their dialogue leaps off the page and keeps the reader entertained from beginning to end. When a book is set in a desolate world, a striking dialogue is key to the survival of the story, of course, the book has legs to stand on without this but in my opinion, a great dialogue and a great pair of characters will make the novel excel and these two characters indeed do this. As I write this I am beyond impressed with the author’s exceptional talent; he knows how to grasp the reader’s attention from the very first page and keep their attention until the last; this is a quality I love! I love when an author is passionate and when I feel that passion, his passion certainly does leap off the page and that is a big yes in my book!
To conclude my thoughts on this extraordinary tale, I would say if you are looking for a thrilling, exciting, unique dystopian novel that will captivate and hold your attention from beginning to end then this brilliant story is for you. This exceptional book gets Five Stars from me!
