I've never read anything quite like "The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf." The post-apocalyptic setting was carefully thought out, the powers of the kids were interesting, "The Machine" was adequately ominous, and the connections to Aboriginal folklore were fascinating. That being said, I never really connected with Ashala. While most of the story focuses on her predicament and how she'll get through, a lot still centers around her feelings for Conner, and young love stories simply don't engage me. The scenes where she wrestled with her feelings and came to realizations about his were arduous for me. I found Ashala's love for the other kids in her tribe and her fierce desire to protect them much more compelling.
All in all, it's a good young adult, supernatural tale that I believe many people will enjoy. I just wish the love story wasn't so integral to the plot.

A thoroughly fantastic dystopian read with well-explained magical abilities, thoughtful depictions of the apocolypse caused by careless human destruction & pollution against the earth, as well as enjoyable ties to Aboriginal folktales & beliefs.
Also, a great wielding of storytelling, going according to Ashala's current memories, it made me want to read the beginning chapters again & reanalyze according to what I know now!
Overall great audio performance & storytelling with endearing characters, and I look forward to listening to the rest of the series!
