Three months have passed since Preen learned that her husband, Rama, was captured and killed by a rival militia. Now the pieces of her shattered life are falling back into place. It’s getting easier to breathe again.

Preen finds herself smiling over her daughter’s antics. She’s engaged to her wealthy, handsome cousin, who loved her long before Rama stole her heart. Then, late one night, Rama calls. He asks Preen to come back to the dangerous city of Dor, back to the life she thought she’d left behind forever…

Review 2020 red

Final Chance is an interesting and poignant book with a great cast of characters. The book opens in July 2020 in what came across as a middle-eastern country judging by the landscape and the characters/place names. We meet Preen and her boyfriend Rama, who is expecting a child, though no one knows this yet.

Rama is explaining to Preen that he has to go to the city of Dor for work to pay off his father’s debts and that he will be there for two years.

The book then moves forward in time to 2023 with Preen coming to terms with the death of her husband after a war in the city between two rival militia. That is until one night she receives a phone call from him asking her to come to Dor to be with him.

The story at just 125 pages long is a quick read. I liked the main characters, especially Preen who was so headstrong, although she was a little rash. However, the world-building to me lacked. It was hard to imagine what the places/scenery looked like. The secondary character’s stories also felt left out, but then this is a novella so no time really to focus on them I suppose.

I also wasn’t a lover of the flashbacks which just seem to appear, were random in time and came often. I became confused by the story on more than one occasion and had to re-read sections as the flashbacks had thrown me off.

Overall, it is a short, quick read that was different from anything I had read before but I wanted more backstory, more world-building, and fewer flashbacks. I know that sounds contradictory but I would have preferred the book to have been written in chronological order then keep having flashbacks, just one of my bugbears in books, sorry.
