“In a post-apocalyptic world, a young woman with a mysterious connection to the land steps forward to confront an evil, militaristic dictator.”
Meet Dark Cloud, a young woman who comes from a traumatic past that she can’t afford to remember, leaving her on high alert and trusting of no one. The sole exception is Ricardo de Castile, the wizard-like engineer who dresses as a Franciscan monk to hide his true specialty and is the creator of the combat robot that has her back. Originally designed as a prototype doomsday weapon by the Federal Government, the combat robot, now renamed Klaatu, has been reprogrammed by Ricardo to fight as part of a team alongside Dark Cloud, the daughter he should have had in the first place. Normally she would prefer to hide from the world as it has become, but when she discovers that her militaristic neighbor, General Stone, has acquired a nuke, Dark Cloud’s love for the land will not let her stand idly by.

Dark Cloud captured my attention immediately, thanks to the fast-paced story, enigmatic characters, and thrilling plot. As I read Dark Cloud, I was honestly in awe; it was like a present was being unwrapped before my eyes, and the more the pages turned, the more excited I got for the finale.
Sandra Wolff is a newly discovered author of mine, and I have to confess book lovers that I am kicking myself for not having found Wolff’s book sooner! I am frustrated that I have not before because never before have I been so entertained with a dystopian novel like this one! To write a good book the reader needs to be fully immersed in the story and feel as if they are experiencing the same events as the protagonist(s) and Wolff manages to accomplish this with her writing in Dark Cloud, so Wolff is most certainly worthy of an abundance of praise.
Not only is Sandra Wolff an outstanding writer for her ability to thrust her readers into the thick of the story, but she also is because she was able to describe all of the events that unravel perfectly. Every event and moment and even place is flawlessly described with a wealth of detail which in turn keeps the reader turning the pages.
