I was given a copy of this book by the author, D. D. Chant, in return for a review.

I really enjoyed the setting on this book and the tribe like structure of the world. Post apocalyptic novels fascinated me in the way so many authors can write such a similar theme in so many varied ways, and this was yet another really interesting take on what society would do afterwards.

The characters were great and there was the usual YA blend of action, romance and focus on who’s partnering up with who and who’s wearing what etc.

The plot had some great twists and I really didn’t see the book ending quite the way it did, which was great. I like those kinds of surprises.

My one moan about the book has to be the lack of detail of the final battles. I really wanted to know what was happening outside and follow the POV of one of the other chracters and be involved but we stayed with the MC and only saw things from her POV which was more limited during that section of the book. Unfortunately I felt it took some of the tension out of the climax of the book.

I will definitely be reading the next book in this series.
