The Old Lie by Clare G Coleman – Book Review

What happens when your country has been colonised, your society has been decimated by the invaders, your culture destroyed, but then generations in, this new country is attacked? Do you fight with those who invaded your lands against the new evil? What if there’s no choice?

Coleman is magnificently clever in the way she uses science fiction to add a whole additional level to the stories of the invasion of Australia and the lives of our first nations people. Heartbreaking but also powerful. I’m definitely keeping an eye on her future novels!
