This ARC was provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I’ve had this book sitting on my kindle app since like last fall. I finally read it and Good Unnamed I am kicking myself for not reading this sooner! I feel like my mind exploded after that ending and I NEED book 2 right now!!
The Indivisible and the Void is an adult sci-fi that introduces us to the world of voidance. This science is what our main character has made his career on. Democryos is the Master Voider and has always believed that voidance is good and a useful technique to combat the evils of the world. When his young and beautiful wife leaves him for someone else, Dem needs to know why. Setting out the find Marine and ask her, he ends up on quite a journey that will change his whole life and beliefs.
I loved the world building. The faith of the efflugents and the science of voiders is a conflict that is all to real in our world. But the mysterious powers granted from the void add a magical element. After dinner with the king one night, Dem leaves with Chimeline, a girl from the King’s harem. Dem soon finds out that Chimeline knows more than he would’ve guessed about the person Marine left with. After the discovery of the hidden laboratory, the two of them set off for the South to try and find Marine and answers about the blurred man she is with.
The beginning was a bit slow and took me a while to get into. But right around the 50% mark, there were several key revelations that blew my mind. After that, it took me one day to finish the rest of this book. I fell in love with the main characters: Dem for his scientific and logical mind, Chimeline for her passion and open mindedness, Blythe for his kindness and faith and Colu for his strength and ability to make me laugh. I loved this group and the answers they found together, they forged true friendships and I cannot wait to see what misadventures they’ll cause in book 2.
Dem and Blythe had almost nothing in common when they meet. But the way their friendship and acceptance of each other develops, was fantastic. I loved seeing faith and science being able to get along. Plus what they discovered was mind blowing on its own.
