Q’s escape from the Vrai Domicile was supposed to be the final spark to ignite the people. But that spark was doused by a sacrifice that threatens to destroy her.
Now Q must forge a new path. Led deep into the woods to find the elusive Transients, she must not only protect those who escaped the Sixth Domicile with her, but also align with Transients who have their own plans of warfare. And their war calls for more death and destruction than Q ever thought possible.
As Q unites both Transient and Domicilian, she quickly realizes that even in the wilderness, no one is free. They must take the fight back to the Domicile. But this war brings with it more secrets, heartbreaking betrayals, and even worse sacrifices, as Q fights to protect her people from Elders who always seem to be one step ahead.
The face of the Revolution has changed. Q has entered the sauvage – a place she isn’t sure she can survive.
Book 3 in the Readers' Favorite Domicile Series by Courtney Ruggles
I would like to thank Courtney Ruggles and Elephantine Publishing for providing this book for review considerations. This in no way created an obligation to provide a review or the nature of any review given.
Well now. Where to start? I have been following this series since before The Sixth Domicile was even released to the public. While it had done reasonably well, it was far from perfect. I gave it much deserved criticism, and did not imagine myself becoming enthralled by the series as a whole. It has been a wonderful experience to watch the development of this story and its author. I can hardly wait for the next installment, even though I am usually patient if not passive about most series releases.
I was absolutely gripped by this book. And I loved every moment of it! The pacing since the first has improved since the first, and feels right. It is driven by not only the internal conflict of the protagonist, but the events of the story. In the times that Q was finding herself blindsided I was able to completely relate, because I was just as shocked. Be ready for dark revelations, endless momentum, and uncertain conjectures.
The Sauvage Domicile carries variations on the same themes as presented the first two installments, The Sixth Domicile and The Vrai Domicile. Click the links to see more details.
About the Author: (From author's website) Courtney's love for writing dates back to short stories on a word processor (What?? Word processor with floppy disks?). Oh yes, she literally had a card filing case full of floppy disks. Now she continues her writing (she upgraded to a laptop) while living in Southern Ohio with her husband and son.
Although Courtney has always lived in Ohio, sometimes closer to the Ohio River and sometimes further away, she dreams of the mountain ranges out west and the sandy Florida beaches. She married the man of her dreams and had a beautiful blond haired blue eyed boy. Before she sought publication for her first book The Sixth Domicile: Book One of the Domicile Series, Courtney worked as a social worker in a mental health agency where she counseled and provided therapy. After she left full time work, she taught social sciences at a local univeristy and began a photography business. The "extra" time gave her the ability to focus on writing again.
Courtney's background in social work fuels the grit in her stories. When Courtney isn't writing her next book, you can find her doing homework (drag) and sipping flavored coffee, reading young adult and new audlt books (because social work text books are only so interesting), or daydreaming about all the future beach houses she intends to buy.
I love books! For most of my life I have been reading them, and giving my insights to friends and family. This blog is for sharing that passion with the many others that love books too.
