Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Tedeskimma is a work of fiction in the literary genre which was penned under the author name of 100 Lick, and is self-described as “A vast, grim, bittersweet, character-driven epic, set in a dark, dystopian world.” Written for adult readers due to the mature content and some disturbing themes within the book itself, this sweeping drama focuses on an ensemble cast of characters to convey its many thematic and poignant messages. The characters take part in their own story, making for eleven tales that are connected by their dystopian themes, though each of the participants battles their own personal demons including issues of faith, patriotism, survival, desperation, and loss.

The enigmatic 100 Lick presents a work as mysterious and thought-provoking as the author name, and one which certainly rewards those who stick with its many twists and turns. The anthology of connected tales in Tedeskimma brings with it a swell of emotions that is down to the excellent work put into character development. Every individual playing a role in the wider story is drenched in realism and given a cynical once-over as per the dystopian atmosphere of the piece as a whole. This is not to say that the characters are maudlin for readers are sure to find themselves rooting for diverse people and cultures that they may never have imagined coming to understand. What results is a slow-burning narrative that takes some very surprising and satisfying twists along the way, and I’d certainly recommend Tedeskimma to literary fiction fans everywhere.
