It starts with Terra and Jack still on the run, looking for safe places to rest etc, and by a mistake end up being captured by the government and sent into a labour camp. From here onwards, the plot just thickens, with so many un-knowns, that you just want to keep reading, to find out what happends next. What Terra goes through is so horrible, I felt sorry for her, also whatever else happends to the other in-mates. She makes a few friends, and shes so moved by these people that she wants to help them and save them from the horrable things that happend there. At one stage Dave and Mary are also captured and thrown into the same camp as Terra.
Whats just so amazing is that Terra cant talk, but shes good at communicating and shes not selfish, she cares about her friends and really wants to help them, and they dont know that shes a colonist, and shes afraid that if she tells them the truth, shell lose them.
In the end, they all find out shes a colonist, and this information is supposed to be a secret, and if the wrong people find out, therell b huge problems for the colonies. Terra just wants to save her friends, and they devise an escape plan out of that dreadful place. The only safe place for them is the ocean collony. They finally do escape, and make it okay to the submerine where Terras sister and mother are waiting. Terra decides to stay, she cant go back down under, she wants to be outside on the burn..
It was a really good story, well written. I enjoyed it very much.Read more ›

"Infraction" starts where "The Burn" leaves off. Jack and Terra have left the school and have since been holding out not far away. The comfort of friends close by makes them feel safer. That is until the night nomads find their packs in the woods. By hiding in the brambles they escape their detection. Shortly there after they are captured and taken to a detention center where they meet others like themselves, captured by the government and used as slave labor.
What are the doctors and agents up too? Why are only some of the prisoners given Vaccines? Where are the children? Why is the Doctor so nice to her and mean to everyone else? How can Terra, Jack and the others escape before something happens, like the doctor killing Terra with the shots he keeps giving her because she was not raised in a sanctioned city?
"Infraction", Annie Oldham's second book in The Burn Trilogy, is just as great as the first book, "The Burn". It also will leave you gaping at the end with surprise. Whether you like the ending or not you will have to agree it is a fantastic way to leave you hungering for more. Lucky for us the third and final book in the trilogy, "The Reaping" is available for you to download immediately to read. Trust me when I tell you that you will not be disappointed in "The Reaping" either.
The main character, Terra, is one courageous chick. When she lost her ability to speak, I was worried that the book would suffer. How does a girl that cannot speak communicate effectively with others push a book plot along? Especially a dystopian book which are usually known for their action and uprising. Somehow Annie Oldham does it though. You'll be surprised. Terra has heart. That is what draws the reader in and that is what connects her to the other characters in this book.
Like any great dystopian, the government corruption is believable and scary. You know it could be real someday. That's the freaky good thing about dystopians. The idea in this book about the methods of control are good. Yikers!
There are great supporting characters in this book as well as two worlds, one on land and one under the ocean, brought together. I really like the ocean colonies and I'm excited to see how those two worlds mesh together in the next book. I'm anxious to know where this story is going. I know there is more to this- an even bigger picture that I haven't gotten yet. Infraction sure ended abruptly. I thought for a minute that I was missing part of the book, but no. It just ended that abruptly. I guess I was just ready for the book to go on and on. :)
