Banshee, Maxine Miley

The author was kind enough to send me a paperback, and this small book packs a punch. Told through an interview with Candor, he tells his history with Banshee and what brought us to the point he needs to tell his story. In a dystopian US taken over by “the Orange”, things aren’t easy for anyone. Before things even came to a head, Candor was already living off the grid in a tent. Used to the lifestyle, it eased his transition into this new world.

Banshee is a force to be reckoned with. She has an ulterior motive in her relationship with Candor, and through Miley’s storytelling, we slowly come to learn what that is. Banshee was a fun read. I’m a huge fan of dystopian, and I enjoyed this take on the altered world. As this is book 1 in a series, I’m hoping we can learn more about what life was like for people under “the Orange” in future books. One of my favorite things about this is that you don’t need the next book to continue the story, but it will be nice to follow Candor through his adventures. Nicely done.

Read and like this review on Amazon and Goodreads.

About the Book:
Welcome to the Enlightened States of America. WARNING! All illegals, outcasts and mutts will be turned away. Any who attempt to illegally cross our border, whether entering or exiting, will be shot on sight.

The United States is gone, overthrown by a corporation known only as “the Orange.”

Candor is an outcast, surviving on the outskirts of a society that has devolved into corporate tyranny. When an unexplainable entity assassinates all of the high-ranking federal officials, the struggling country is thrown deeper into a fervor of chaos.

Candor comes forward to help and during the course of a government interview, he tells his story about his relationship with Banshee, an outcast like himself with some serious rage issues and some seriously strange abilities. While it is clear that Candor loves Banshee it becomes apparent that his love will never be enough to contain her.
