C.S. Mills, author of the original English light novel Beyond the Dome: A Blue-Collar Hero, was kind enough to review Vol. 1 of Final Hope! Her full review was lost when her old website was wiped; however, she posted her Amazon version of the review on her new site: http://www.alightnovelist.com.
I appreciate her honest words as it is the exact kind of feedback I am looking for!

Here is what she had to say about Final Hope:
While there aren’t any illustrations, there’s no need of any. Joshua is very descriptive, and paints a perfect picture of the characters in your mind. With that said, I had a hard time connecting with the characters. Mikomi, the protagonist, Serah and Ryan, friends from his past all felt generic. I feel that it was due to the characters speech, and how it was written down to the crossed T’s and dotted I’s.
Even with the lack of connection, the story unfolded nicely, although somewhat a little slow for my liking. I wished to know more about the shooting in general, but not a lot was said (hopefully in Vol 2!). The detail, however, was great. The fact that Mikomi could change the world with every subtle decision, kept me turning the page.
