A jaded resistance fighter. A magical mutant girl. A quest to save the last beacon of hope in a deadly, dystopian world.
Sixteen-year-old Angela thinks she and her father are the last survivors on Earth. She dreams of adventure and romance but only finds it in books. In the confines of her garden paradise, she’s untouched by contaminants that caused the rest of humanity to mutate into murderous beasts or die. But the lure of the outside world is irresistible.
When a seventeen-year-old boy stumbles upon Angela’s home with news about a thriving community, she dares to leave her garden for the first time. The dystopian society that she finds is deadlier than she expected, and the wardens tasked with protecting the settlement have murderous secrets. Does she have what it takes to stay alive and save humanity in the process?
My Review: 5 STARS
I picked this up because the blurb and cover called to me, and ended up devouring it in one sitting. I loved Angela, and loved the world building and thought that went into the story. While a very quick read, I’m happy that I have the next two books in the series to read as well because I’m desperate to know more about this world and what it means, and Angela’s future. I loved the characters, loved the twists and turns, and adored the whole premise. My only wish was that it was longer, and more developed in certain places, but that didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the book as a whole. Recommended to those who love dystopian and post apocalyptic worlds.
