Orion is in a pretty bad situation. Her mother is dead. So of course she follows in her footsteps and becomes a miner like she was. She is the lead ore scout. Together with Dram, they are the best scouters of cirium. Orion is the best sort of female heroine. She is brave and a bit impulsive. I loved her inability to keep her mouth shut. Dram and Orion enjoy a slow burn kind of romance that made so much sense.
This book is set in dark place, with danger all around. It seems a bit horrible to be so excited about a book where people suffer radiation burns, but it is so well described. With an undercurrent of hope, Orion and Dram travel all over this world. They encounter strange things and horrifying creatures. I actually had the heebie-gebies at one point and had to put the book down. So much imagination in this story.
The only negative I could say about this book is that it seemed like it jumped around a bit at some points. Also, I got so confused about the cordons and outposts. I suppose it could be that I didn't follow the map correctly. I have ordered the hardcover of this book so when I re-read it, and I will re-read this (even though i never ever re-read anything), I can follow along on the map. It is too close to be sure if it was just me being over eager to get through the story, or if was actually an issue with the writing. I am assuming it was me.
The feelings I have for this book cannot be adequately described in this review. Just know, I am giving this my highest recommendation to science fiction YA and dystopian YA fans. This is a must read for anyone who enjoys action packed writing.
(Lenore/Reeves you'll be in my heart! D:)
I really enjoyed this. I loved Orion and her mining escapades. Her relationship with her dad was great too. I was just really confused by a lot of what was happening, lol. Also, a lot of things happened at the end of the book that felt kind of rushed through.
