Blog Tour: The End of Athens by Anthony Karakai

Urban Fantasy
Date Published: 5/2/2013

In the year 2091, humans have lost the ability to dream. After decades of financial and social depression, dreams and aspirations have become a recessive gene—an impossibility of the modern mind.
Greece is one of the worst social and economic disaster zones, and all hope of a better future has been lost. One young man, Nikos, discovers that he is not like everybody else—there is something different about him.
Believing that he may be going crazy, he soon discovers that he is the only person in Greece who has inherited the ability to dream. Time is running out as the government continues its tirade of corruption and suppression against the people, and Nikos must find a way to teach others how to dream so that once more society can free itself from the shackles of mental slavery.

My Review:
I really enjoyed the fact that while being fiction, you really think about how the possibility of these circumstances coming to pass. This one is not as far-fetched and some books out there and that really made me read and enjoy it on a different level. 

There is a lot going on and it will definitely captivate the reader from the very beginning while also making you wonder and question our actions. 

The characters were multi-deminsional and well developed as was the plot line. 

Great Read!
