I am at a loss for words. Book 4 in this series is amazing. I felt all the emotions from/with the characters. It made me feel as though I was right there. I really thought it couldn’t get better, but I was mistaken. It continues to be great. Simons has me wanting more. I highly suggest reading this series, you will not be disappointed.

Book 4 in the Antipodes series just might be my favorite so far. Finally settling into a peaceful life, Cam and Freyja vow to never leave the sanctuary of the dome again. But when people from their past bring devastating news, Frey just can’t resist venturing out one more time in search of answers.
This series dives deep into the fact that no matter what, even in what is supposed to be an almost perfect world, people still struggle. Loss, tragedy, heartbreak, all affect those on Lewis.
Caim is a fantastic novel. This book takes the reader down a darker turn than the previous books and I loved it. The characters are amazing, and their joy, heartache, and love are felt by the reader through and through. The final twist at the end of the book left me wanting more. I can hardly wait to read book 5.

4.5 Stars

 

Caim is the fourth book in the Antipodes series by T.S Simons. As with the rest of the books in the series, it is a fantastic post-apocalyptic, dystopian story with some sci-fi elements, action, adventure, romance, drama, discovery, friendships, bonds, loyalty, trauma, anxiety, trials, surprising developments, twists, tension, mystery, emotion, and much more.
Quite a lot has happened since we started back in book one and our characters have been through quite a lot. The safety and happiness they found will be disrupted as shocking news means leaving to search for answers. Love and friendships are on the line- loyalties are tested, and shocking discoveries are made. The series gets better and better, with each new instalment, and for me, this is the most emotionally charged story of the series, so far.
I still think this series would make great television viewing. I can really see it coming to life on the small screen.
OMG- can’t wait to dive into ‘Sessrumnir’ (Book #5)!!!

Thank you, T.S. Simons!

I just love all the books in this series. In this 4th installment, we pick up 7 or 8 years on from Ouroboros, and we see things through Freyja’s eyes. When some nighttime visitors arrive with unexpected news, Freyja is compelled to get back on the open sea to find the answers to her questions. Lots of action ensues, and this book had me hooked from the beginning. I love the relationship between Cam and Freyja, their individual characters are great and fleshed out so well. This is a great dystopian fantasy, and I am sincerely hoping this won’t be the last for these characters, or this authour!

Caim is the 4th book in the Antipodes series by T.S. Simons. I read the last three books of this four book series, and it just got better and better. I had a hard time putting this book down. While the other books tell the story from multiple perspectives but mostly from Cam’s, this story is mostly told from the point of Freyja. We are several years past book three, and Freyja and Cam have had two more kids. This book is full of their struggle with Clava as well as with Angus. I was surprised at the turn their story took but loved reading it. I highly recommend reading this series and from the beginning!

I really enjoyed this book! It continues following the life that Cam and Freyja have built from her POV. There are plot twists that you don’t expect, and it keeps you reading to find out how it all ends. Just when you think The Collective can’t get any worse… they do, and you want them all to burn.

This series makes you think about your life and evaluate what is really important. Truly. Love this series! You FEEL the heartache and the triumphs of the characters to your core.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In this installment of the Antipodes series, we are back with Cam and Freya as they settle back into life on Lewis with their children and families around them, they are back working hard and savouring the feeling of being home, but when the proximity alarm sets off in the middle of the night, Freya has just returned from overseeing a mare in labour and all she wants to do is sleep, but instead she pulls on her clothes and goes to their neighbours to check on the surveillance footage and be fed coffee at the same time. When they see an unfamiliar boat coming in to land, they are wary, especially after their past experiences with unannounced visitors and they know these ones are unannounced as they haven’t radioed ahead or come in at a decent time of day, however, when they go to meet the boat and let them into the dome, they are shocked to see who the passengers are, they are even less impressed at the intrusion.

As they are familiar faces who both Cam and Freja never wanted to see again, they are reluctant to give them the time of day, however, when the reason for their visit is made clear, the shock deepens, as does the intrigue surrounding it. The group slowly return to their homestead to talk in more detail and invite their closest friends into the conversation as well when it turns out that they are all affected, however, they are horrified that these people have come to them and are very cold towards them. As the conversation continues in a more comfortable setting, truths are revealed that shake the group to the core, it is to do with why they were all chosen for these communities and the future plans the scientists had for them.

Over the next couple of days, Freya and Cam process this new information and have some very hard decisions to make, but they are supported in the avenue they eventually choose and the community all pitch in to take up the slack as they set off on another necessary journey outside of the safety of the dome. The preparations are set in motion and goodbyes and explanations to the children are made, they accept help from their closest friends to accompany them on the voyage and they set off into the unknown on a mission for further information and exploration into what the future of these communities will be. Will the foursome be able to uncover the hidden plans of the scientific community, or will what they find destroy any small remnants of trust they had? This is another thrilling escapade into the dystopian world of the antipodes which will keep you on the edge of your seat as you read along with the group as they set off on their adventures and find out what happens in the end.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another wonderful installment in the Antipodes series. Cam, Lae, Freya and the rest of the groups under the domes return for more adventures. The characters are so well written that they could be your next door neighbors. The whole mystery of the antipodes fascinates me so the series has been attention keeping for me. The characters have also drawn you in because you find yourself trying to figure out who’s good and who’s bad? Amazing series! You really should give it a shot.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 4th book in the Antipodes series and it was just as enjoyable as the first 3. I would really recommend reading these books in order so you get the whole story. The author does an amazing job at creating the scenes and also creating characters you connect with. This book is another adventure from beginning to end with twists and turns you don’t see coming.

In this book we are back with Cam and Freyja. Finally together and settled in a blissful life their world seems complete. Until two old friends/enemy’s turn up with news and theories to rock their world.

Could Freyja sister be alive? Is she being kept and used to help repopulate the world against her will or has something more sinister happened. There is only one way to find out and it means Cam and Freyja leave the safety of their home to get the answers. But are they prepared for the truth or should they have stayed in their own little bubble of bliss and ignorance.

T.S. Simons – Wow! Another Antipodes book read. And I am truly amazed again. The story of Cam and Freya continues. Their love has been rekindled and life in the Lewis community seems to be moving along.

Visitors from Auckland via Clava come to Lewis in search of a new home. They bring with them more shocking news of how the government has been using their reproductive selection process. This news sends a shock through Freya’s and Cam’s life together as once again they have to set off to make things right.

Of course, when it comes to the communities nothing is ever completely back to normal. Follow their journey in book 4 of the Antipodes series.
