Book summary:
They took everything: her family, her home, her childhood.
By the age of nineteen, Raven has spent most of her life in the sprawling slums of America, fighting as a rebel against the dictatorship. When the rebellion steals an experimental time-travel device, she travels back five decades to the year 2013. Her plan: assassinate the future dictator when he is still young and vulnerable, long before he comes to power. She must move fast to reshape history, because agents from her own time are on her trail, ready to execute her on sight.
         Few months ago I was lucky enough to host this author and share his guest post on my blog. You can check it here and if you do you'll laugh so hard. I realized that this author can be really hilariously witty and the best part of it he transferred that into Nomad or better said Raven which made this reading experience pleasurable.

         This story starts in the middle of everything. We met Raven walking on the road without previous memories. She is completely lost in place and time and slowly she discovers that some people are after her so she knows that she must defend which is like breathing to her as she is a soldier. With all advanced technology from future she realizes that she is on a mission to fix things and save future. She came back to kill a future dictator while he is still young and powerless. Of course, things are never as easy as they seem.

         Beside a really kick-but character, which I enjoyed being, Nomad has a great idea which is nicely developed. The world building was great and it was so easy to picture the destroyed future in which Raven grew up. There is also romance here, so it wasn't put aside. Add great pacing to all that, and you realize it's a nicely balanced book for all lovers of dystopia and those who are yet to become that.

         Only thing is that I wish there was more Jabbie here. I was so curious about his character so I only wish he had been more developed. But nonetheless you won't be able to put this book down and you'll turn pages frantically just to see what happens next. It's addictive.

Rating: 4 stars.

Until the next time,

  1. The chick on the cover looks so kick-ass, great to see that she is in the book as well! I actually love books that start in the middle of no-where because they make you want to read it faster.

    Lovely review, Tanja! <33

  5. I love witty writing. Laugh out loud books are some of the best, and Raven definitely seems like a dymanic character. Not sure the premise is something I'd read, but if the writing is that engaging, I may end up giving it a shot. Great review, Tanja!

  11. I won this book in a giveaway, but I've been putting off reading it because it has time travel aspect to it. It sounds like I'm really missing out. The main character sounds like a girl I would adore and I do love humor in my books. Plus, the pacing and world-building sound wonderful.
    Thanks for sharing the lovely review, Tanja!

  13. Isn't this the same author who's written the Songs of Angels something series? The fairies one? I've read the first book there and found it to be a kind of imitation of Harry Potter so I stopped. But this sure sounds good and I've seen Nomad a lot. I'm glad you enjoyed it and great review! I don't remember if I did it before, so I'm now off to check out the post the author wrote for you. I'm up for a good laugh!

  15. This cover totally reminds me of another book I have seen but I can't think of it now. Anyway, dystopia is one of my all time favorite genres and this one sounds pretty unique!
