I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Wow, action packed and exciting post apocalyptic story with surprising twists in the plot that I didn't see coming. I thought these characters where fascinating and unique. I loved this book, it is an absolutely fantastic page turner, and I couldn't put it down!
I am voluntarily leaving an honest and non-incentivized review of this ARC.
I have mixed feelings about this one. It starts out as an intriguing girl with dog against the world story. That part holds up the suspense, mystery and character development pretty well. You can really feel teh MC's struggle in this hellscape world, and she really feels like a real person. Then the love interest is introduced and it all goes to hell. At that point the character's dialogue and feelings don't match with the actual tone of their actions. It was really clunky and unnatural.
For example *Minor Spoiler* The MC meets the LI, who proceeds to help her out of a bind. He does literally nothing suspicious other than choose to help her, and her inner monologue is all about how much of an a**hole he is and how rude he is, and I'm like what? He's said almost nothing to you. Then he actually says something rather crude in a jarring way that doesnt follow his previous actions, and then the MC is like, wow, he's so hot. So when he was being perfectly normal, he's an A-hole, and when he is actually being awful, he's hot.
It's like the LI has tourettes but for random, unsexy sexually-harassing comments. Talking, talking, talking, bam I'd love to put my hand up your shirt. I think the author was going for aggressive alpha male, but only landed on teenage 4chan boy. I DNF'ed at 50-ish percent when I couldnt take the love interest anymore, though I did skip a bit to the end to make sure I wasnt missing anything good. Managed to land on a scene where a character was telling the MC that the Love Interest's terrible behavior and all the murder was actually totally okay and she was being unreasonable for being a bit put out by that. *End Spoiler*
If the book had stayed a scifi dystopian thriller type book where the only male character was the dog, it would have been a much better book. Alas, the terrible romance sank it for me. If you are bit more tolerant of red-flag love interests and clunky relationship buildup, you'll probably enjoy this book a lot more than I did. I gave it three stars for the interesting scifi elements and the strong relationship of the MC and the dog.
