The best Books Daybreak Rising If you're looking for a spec fic new adult novel with rich world-building and diverse characters, Daybreak Rising is the book for you!There's a lot to like in this book. While the story takes a little while to get going, I loved the rich and varied world-building that sees magic coexisting with technology. This isn't a common pairing and I think it was handled well in this story with some Elementalists (mages) even having magic that affected technology. I thought that was pretty cool. But what definitely sets this book apart from the rest is the diversity of the characters. There are physically disabled characters, various LGBT+ characters, and characters with mental illness. None of these characters feel like mere tokens, but rather seem organic to the story world. There's a particular awareness of what it means to be trans - such as access to adequate health care - even in a fantasy setting. This is the first time I've read content like that, where such choices were affected by and consequently affected elements of the plot.There were however, also things I didn't love in this book. I enjoy reading more poetic, purple prose which this book is not. There were also times I wanted more of the plot, more of the tension and action, and less of the characters getting to know each other and chatting over meals. I think that's what happens in first books though, in that there's so much that needs to be set-up for the sequels, so while I understand it, I did sometimes find the pacing frustrating to the point where I skimmed a few dialogue scenes in search of more action.Overall, I think this book is something very different and definitely takes new adult spec fic to the next level, especially when it comes to diversity.
