Point of View

Morgan Rice tells her novel A Reign of Steel from the third-person, omniscient perspective. This is done for at least two primary reasons. One reason is that the great number of diverse characters, places, and back stories would make the first-person perspective difficult to follow along for the reader. The third-person presents a unifying voice which links the characters, places, and events. This allows the reader to follow the plot far more easily. Secondly, the omniscient aspect of the third-person narrative allows both reader and narrator to be aware of all the events going on, even when the characters themselves do not have the gift of such knowledge. This creates an air of suspense and urgency for the reader. For example, the reader dreads what they know is coming for Gwendolyn. The reader wills her to handle or avoid the catastrophe with Romulus.
