PJV Quickie:  PERFECT RUIN, the first book in Lauren DeStefano’s new series was a compelling story, rich in detail and light in portrayal. DeStefano has a certain prose that is almost weight-less, she weaves her story with minimal embellishments, but rich detailing. Her gift for writing leaves you sighing over certain phrases and character actions. DeStefano clearly has impeccable talent for crafting a story and she proves it again in the start of her new series, The Internment Chronicles, PERFECT RUIN.

 

Review: PERFECT RUIN opens with the introduction of Morgan Stockhour, a 16-year-old girl that lives on a floating island above the Earth. The island is small, which is why it is under the very restrictive control of the King. Births and even deaths are regulated, food and basic needs are provided for, you just have to marry who they say you must marry and hold the job you are given. On Internment you can’t even get close to the edge without the risk of going mad. Jumpers, like her brother Lex, end up disabled and socially backward, not able to contribute to society.
