The Earth Dwellers is the 4th book in BOTH The Dwellers Saga and The Country Saga. The author recommends that BOTH series are read in their entirety before reading this book (The Moon Dwellers, The Star Dwellers, The Sun Dwellers, Fire Country, Ice Country, Water & Storm Country).

Your favorite Dwellers and Country Saga characters come together in this epic seventh book!

As President Borg Lecter threatens to annihilate the Country tribes in order to expand his glass-domed empire, Adele ventures into the belly of the beast. Her only hope of survival is the consolidation of Dwellers and Country power before it’s too late.

Former demagogue President Nailin is eliminated, yet civil unrest infects every alliance. To save Adele, President Tristan faces his greatest challenge yet: unifying unfriendly Dwellers in the Tri-Realms to raise an army against Lecter. Meanwhile, Dazz must convince the Ice Country leaders to march with Siena and the Tri-Tribes on the gates of the Glass City.

The world sits on the edge of a knife. Will Adele, Tristan, Dazz, and Siena defeat Lecter and his army of killers before the Glassies wipe them off the face of the Earth?

Here we have the final book in the Dwellers and Country sagas. There is unrest down below, a war brewing up top, an evil dictator that needs to be taken care of, and of course the Earth Dwellers, who seem to have genocidal tendencies.

What happens when you take strong, stubborn characters and throw them together? Lots of action and conflict. Things are not pretty when you have Tristan, Adelle, Skye, Sienna, and Wilde in the same room.

The characters in this book are great. We already know most of them from the previous novels. The new characters don’t get a ton of development, but it is enough to know who they are. There is a ton of action and peril in the novel, and not too many slow parts. It is really interesting to see the worlds collide between our underground friends, the tribes, and the glassies.

There are a couple moments in the book that are just shocking… I never saw them coming. Everything wraps up nicely and there aren’t too many lingering questions. Ultimately the book ends with hope, which has been the main underlying theme of the entire series. I thought the epilogue was a bit long and I probably would have incorporated more of it into the ending and left out other parts.

If you’re read the other books in the series, there isn’t any reason not to get this one. It is full of action, the same great characters, and a good conclusion to the series
