It's the celebrated Annual Day, and the careers of the class-fellows will be chosen by the deans, with little consideration for personal interests and affinities. Three master class-fellows have been gifted with unique elemental abilities that could be instrumental in overthrowing the totalitarian government of Core Town. Michael is the annoying prankster with a blazing temper. Elizabeth is a natural swimmer with a bad family reputation. And Samantha is the Classmaster, plant lover, and "the very model of Registrar values." In Core Town, freedom is restricted; speech, clothing, and more are monitored; and offenders are brutally assaulted and displayed as a warning to others. Do the three teenagers have what it takes to join the revolution and help in creating a more humane environment? The first novel by M.B. Swerdlow, The Ninety-Two: Core Town True, of this series is amazingly detailed, immersive, and electrifying.
Highly recommended for a literary escape! I had hours of satisfying entertainment. With intricate details about unique battle weapons, architecture, religion, sports, careers, rules, and much more, the worldbuilding in Core Town True is simply ingenious. Plus, M.B. Swerdlow is an expert wordsmith. I'm talking mind-blowing metaphors and hilarious, infectious conversations. It was a lot of fun, even as it progresses gradually. The descriptions are quite lifelike as I could feel the connections and tensions between the characters. Though the main protagonists are between the ages of sixteen and seventeen, The Ninety-Two is also suitable for an older audience. I am excited that it's a series because I already love the characters and can't wait to continue reading about them in the next book. Fantastic work!
