Featherstone wrote Lander’s naivety in what was going on in the outside world well. While Lander left his farm with good intentions, he made a few costly mistakes. Considering how young he was, he handled all the obstacles well. Growing up on a farm can give you some skills that can help you out in the world. You will need to read book 3 for a resolution because some secrets come to light that need resolving. Aftershocks is a fun read. I was glad when Lander found his voice and his strength and I want to see where that goes.
