Book Review: Desert Runner by Dawn Chapman


An NPC story.
With her pain potions in short supply, Maddie accepts a deadly run, pick up a package in Trox City and cross the desert plains to Port Troli, the only issues – an unwanted passenger and Tromoal breeding season.



My Review: 5-Stars

I love Desert Runner, and Dawn Chapman is a fantastic writer! I think the cover is great and portrays just what kind of book you’re going to get. A strong female main character takes center stage on the cover and in the story. The writing is very strong and well done, and Dawn has a way with a pen that sucks you into the story, wishing for more at the end.

Sci-fi isn’t normally something I pick up, but I’m glad I stumbled onto this book. The characters are well-done, the story moves at a nice pace that keeps you reading, and there is lots of futuristic stuff to plant you firmly into the story.

I love the main character, Maddie. She’s a self-sufficient badass who gets the job done despite her physical pain from past injuries. The story has just the right touches to really bring out the sci-fi elements, making me feel like I was in the future.

This book did it for me, and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes to read sci-fi with a Mad Max feel. Actually, I recommend this book to everyone. You will fall in love with this author and her writing.

I also hosted Dawn for an author interview. To see more reviews on Desert Runner, check out The Naked Reviewers.
