Enemy Zone by Alex Lidell is a thrilling addition to the Young Adult Fantasy genre. Published in September 2020, it follows the story of Zara, a young warrior who strives to prove herself to her clan and protect her people from their enemies.
The book explores themes of loyalty, family, and self-discovery. Set in a fictional world, the story takes place in the midst of a brutal war between the two rival clans, the Hereva and the Namari.
Zara, who is part of the Hereva clan, is tasked with completing a mission that no one else has managed to accomplish. Desperate to prove her worth, Zara volunteers for the mission and is eventually captured by the Namari.
She soon discovers that what she thought about her enemies is not entirely true. Lidell does an excellent job of crafting the characters in the book.
Zara, the protagonist, is a strong and intelligent warrior who is forced to confront the harsh realities of war. Lidell also explores the themes of loyalty and family in the book, highlighting the bonds between the characters and their desire to protect their own.
The author also masterfully builds tension throughout the story, keeping readers at the edge of their seats. One of the highlights of this book is the world-building.
Lidell has created a unique and fascinating world where readers can immerse themselves in the story completely. The complex political system, the magic, and the various cultures and traditions of the clans are all expertly woven into the narrative.
The book is also culturally significant, as it explores themes of war and prejudice that are relevant to current issues. The author’s writing style is engaging and immersive, making it easy for readers to dive deep into the world of the story.
The pacing is also well done, keeping the reader interested and invested in the story’s outcome. However, Enemy Zone does have some flaws.
The subplots could have been trimmed down, as they are not as compelling as the main plot. Lidell could have also delved deeper into some of the secondary characters to make them more interesting.
Overall, Enemy Zone is a brilliantly crafted book that deserves to be read by young adults and fantasy lovers alike. The author’s dedication to building the world and the intricate relationships between the characters is evident throughout the story.
Despite its minor flaws, the book’s strengths make it a fantastic read. I highly recommend it and give it a score of 4 out of 5.
