Book Review: Blackfish City, by Sam J. Miller (2018).


Blackfish City is a fantastic fantasy novel that is full of intrigue and imagination. The author has created a great dystopian society that generates power with property ownership in a time when real estate just isn’t an easy purchase.

The scene is set brilliantly and the characters don’t disappoint with rich descriptions and fascinating history’s that follow each of them. There is a lot of mystery behind each face and the author allows history to periodically be retold by characters and opportune times giving the reader a chance to follow the storyline easily.

I really enjoyed the storyline of Kaev and his eventual meeting of Liam. But the arrival of an Orcha being ridden by a woman as though it was the easiest thing in the world would have to be a close second in my favourite parts of the book.

What I did find frustrating would have to be the ending. It all just seems too easy. Yes sure Kaev will have a lot to deal with, and they are all going to need to fight for a place in society. But it just felt almost too easy.

Overall I found the Blackfish City by Sam J. Miller is a fantastic novel that I enjoyed reading very much. I would recommend this novel to young adults and older who enjoy the fantasy fiction genre. I give this book a rating of 8.5/10 stars.
