Ninth City Burning by J. Patrick Black

"Ninth City Burning" by J. Patrick Black is the perfect book for fantasy loving readers! It's kind of a mix of Hunger Games and Ender's Game.

Unlike most books I've read, the chapters in Ninth City Burning alternates between MANY different characters. It's actually pretty impressive once you get to the end of the book and see how the characters are intertwined.

Aliens have invaded earth, and they've brought their own kind of magic with them. The war has been going on for five hundred years. Old cities and civilizations are gone, with only their crumbling buildings remaining. Chapters alternate between Naomi, Torro, Jax, Rae, and multiple other characters. Each with their own unique story and abilities, yet all fighting for the same outcome. To eradicate the alien race.

There's so much going on in this book, it's really difficult to give a synopsis without giving anything away. I found it to be both interesting and thought provoking, and still vastly different from most books in its genre. It's a long read, at just over five hundred pages long, but it's worth it. I would definitely recommend this one.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
