Review: Sunblood by Maria Mora

Caleb, sub-citizen 45201, is a psychic slave in the massive biodome known as the City—the only civilized community left on his wasted planet. Though he has no rights, Caleb is well aware life could be worse.

At least his life has perks: the cookies that occasionally are available in the cafeteria, and his Keeper, Daniel, who lets Caleb get away with playing in the minds of City inhabitants.

Then Caleb’s targeted by people who fear his powers, and Caleb realizes that he stands to lose far more than he ever realized he had…

This book was truly interesting. I really liked the world the author created. Especially the different classes of people. There descriptions are wonderful and completely brought me into where Caleb and Daniel live. It was interesting to see how the Sunbloods are treated in the world, and how Caleb is looked at as a slave. Daniel is a very compassionate Keeper. However, I would have liked to know more about Daniel’s feelings throughout the book. I also wanted to know more about how Caleb and Daniel handled surviving in such a harsh environment. I was left with some questions at the end of the book and not much of a happy ending for the couple. I really hope there’s a sequel to this story. I’d read it in a heartbeat if there was.
