Critical Habitat is a work in the science fiction, dystopia, action, and adventure subgenres. It is suitable for young and adult readers and contains minimal fantasy violence. Penned by Terrence King, this gripping and highly conceptual dystopian story transports us to a dying planet where survival is everything. Our central characters are X and Y, born in times of rebellion against an austere government controlling the world’s food supply. The rebels have survived thanks to a precious nest of honeybees, the last in the known world, but now the vicious General Speer is hell-bent on a quest to find and conquer the rebels and their precious supplies for the Authority once and for all.
Terrence King delivers a superb dystopian drama that feels incredibly tense throughout. There’s something so brilliant about the pace of the narrative and the atmospheric depiction of the dying world, where danger and annihilation seem to lurk around every corner. The worldbuilding is concrete and realistic, making the concept all the more believable and the plight of X, Y, and the rebels all the more frightening. With thriller as its base emotion, the story builds up layers of science fiction, horror, dystopia, and action to become a fully rounded dark drama that easily surpasses the more simplistic us-against-them stories, developing into a serious, passionate drama about human survival and the way greed and power can corrupt. I would not hesitate to recommend Critical Habitat to fans of intense dystopian stories packed with accomplished writing.
