Canada, 2165 AD. The Water Wars and a decimated economy have taken their toll. Anyone who doesn't live in a military-patrolled metropolis lives in a clan. But being in a clan doesn't mean safety.
And for a Ven like Roan Lee, it doesn't matter where he lives. Safety is a luxury. So is freedom.
Roan is desperate to escape the governtary's exploitation and torture. He is nothing to them but 54σK1, an artifact born from a genetic mishap. When the chance to escape arises, he makes a run for it—and encounters the lover from his past, twisting his future into a second chance he never expected.
As leaders of Clan Teach, Jace Ama and his wife, Cayra Diega, have enough difficulty keeping their people safe. When Roan is thrown to their feet as a prisoner, their marriage becomes an additional challenge. Jace still loves Roan, but where does that leave Cayra?
REVIEW: For The Clan is the first book I read by Archer Kay Leah and it certainly will not be the last. This is a Dystopia Sci Fi with a hint of Fantasy in the mix. The story starts by introducing us to Roan and Jace while traveling through the backdrop of Old London, Canada. A place that has been devastated by the war between the governtary and rogue soldiers.
For The Clan follows the plot of a devastated Canada – devastated by an economical apocalypse that it has made it impossible to survive as an Desenfranchised. A place where the government has divided society, in different ways, not only by taking away things such as water, but also by forcing them to form alliances and clans that without each other’s help would otherwise come to a demise.
This story explores the disadvantages of a great minority, the Ven, a new type of human with great ability and magic that can destroy life in a blink of an eye, and one that the governtary wants to have full control of.
The story is told from different point of view, making it very easily to get the different perspective and glimpses into each of these characters emotions and feelings. Each sees and experiences life differently but while they may all feel and love different the one thing that brings them all together is the intensity in which they love each other.
For The Clan is a great story that explores humanity need for survival, humanity needs for belonging and our desire to love one another. The author did a good job creating a setting that not only take these characters to their limit but it is done with caution so that the essence of their nature isn’t overshadow by their quality of life. The disadvantages that exist in that new world only brings them together and create stronger relationships. I really enjoyed the relationship between Jace & Roan – the simplicity yet complications of it made it that much real. Cayra was also another character that gave the story such a sensuality while also grounded and sealed Roan & Jace’s fate. I really enjoyed this nicely crafted love story.
Overall For The Clan has a lot going for it, from the war between the Ven, rogue soldiers and governtary, to the romance between Jace & Roan and Cayra, to the magic that at the end saves the clans this story has a bit of everything. At times the transition from one character’s POV to another is a bit undefined but that doesn’t take away the originality and nice world created by the author.
