Queentide
Donna Fisher, author
Authoritarianism has crept into the country. Women have lost their rights and voices. But Bodie and her militant granddaughter, Insley, are gambling everything to return them. They have set up a radical feminist group, Queentide, to steal the upcoming election and make Aboriginal politician, Kathleen, the next Prime Minister of an all-women Government. The ex-wife of a senior Minister, Lilith, vows to help them by sharing explosive secrets that will guarantee Queentide's success. But two things might stop them. A state-backed, violent men's rights group and a bitter power struggle that threatens to tear Queentide apart. Can the women harness the storm and smash the patriarchy? Or will Queentide wreck itself?

Assessment:

Plot: Taking place in the future, this plot has a dystopian flair even though some may consider it to be today’s current state of affairs. Fans of political literature will find this novel empowering and enjoy the twists and turns. Fisher deals with numerous issues pertaining to women and manages to juggle them all.

Prose/Style: Using a powerful tone, the writing is strong and never waivers from its intent and intended audience. Fisher writes with passion for the subject and has no fear of broaching difficult themes.

Originality: Taking place in the future with the Coronavirus having just passed, the author has created a plot that could take place in a variety of time periods. The feminist approach will be a draw to this book for readers as well.

Character Development/Execution: Strong personalities come together in this novel, with one particular character starting out as meek and unsure, only to press on and go on a true heroine’s journey. The strong personalities don’t let up which helps keep the fire burning throughout the plot.
