The Last Smile in Sunder City: A 7-9 Year School Favourite
The Last Smile in Sunder City was chosen by the year 7-9 students at my school as a favourite and to be their book club pick for the month. I am actually completely jealous that the senior school students have a book club, and I cannot wait until I am in Year 7 and I can participate and ace it! Anyway, I digress. The librarian at my school library recommended I read this book, and of course, write a book review for them on what I thought. So here it is!
The Last Smile in Sunder City is a story about a human, named Fetch Phillips. The story is based post-Coda, that is, the destruction of magic by humans, so Fetch and his kind are hated by magical creatures. The funny thing is Fetch also hates his own kind.
This book does have some swearing and is a bit mature, as there are some gruesome descriptions of violent attacks, and some mature romantic relationships, which might be a bit too advanced for younger readers. Despite this warning, I still believe that this is a good book to read.
Fetch is a PI (Private Investigator) so, if you like mysteries and action it is a great book for you. Fetch is struggling in life as he is hated by most people, and he doesn't particularly like them in return. During the case he takes on in this story, he is pushed to the limit, as he remembers his past, which was not all roses involving fights, imprisonments and lost relationships.
This book is good for 12-16 or 17 year-olds due to the content mentioned above. All in all though it is a great book and those ages should definitely read it.
