In a world where water is scarce and feelings are outlawed, teenager Luca suddenly finds himself declared Deliverer, the one who travels underground to a dangerous enemy world to negotiate for the continued flow of water for his world. Before the day of his travel arrives, Luca begins to suspect that all is not as it seems. As he embarks upon his journey, he encounters both allies and enemies in unlikely places and discovers his true purpose.
Well-written and entertaining, Aquifer has likeable characters and intriguing plot twists. An easy read, I found myself rooting for Luca as he uncovers the truth.
I have always enjoyed Friesen’s writing and I thought this one of his best works. The spiritual undertones were clear, yet unassuming. A great story – I didn’t want it to end. Sequel???
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksneeze in return for an unbiased review.
