I thoroughly enjoyed this book and could not put it down. The strong female characters are so engaging, and I kept turning pages to find out what would happen to Naya next. As I neared the end and began seeing the percentage on my Kindle get to 96%, 98%...I thought, no way! This can't be near the end! There's so much more left to find out, explore and experience! Alas...one must wait for Book Two, and I cannot wait!!!
Anne Tibbets is a great author. I appreciate books that don't have a lot of superfluous detail and flowery language. The language is real. The conversations sound like a movie in my head. The descriptions are just enough to paint the picture. And it lets you get to the story and action.
This is NOT a children's book! The subject matter (similar to today's dilemma of sex trafficking) is a serious one, and often described in detail, but that detail is not meant to shock as much as it is to further the story and better understand the main character. By setting this in the future, it feels like fiction in that there is no way a government could do this to young girls, but unfortunately, it is a harsh reality that young women are forced into sex slavery in the world today...let's hope not by the government.

I wish this was going to be more than a two book series. Why not 3? It worked for Hunger Games, Ms. Tibbets. Go for 3!!! (And a movie, please!)

'Carrier' is the first book in a heart-pounding New Adult dystopian series that follows our lead heroine, Naya, as she attempts to escape the clutches of the government and gain her freedom. After being sold to a government sex slave institute named "The Line" at age 12, Naya has known nothing outside of its doors or apart from her terrible life for the past 9 years. When she is brought to the manager's office and told that she's pregnant - which shouldn't be possible for girls on the Line - she's also released back into society with certain conditions: she must find a replacement for herself on the line or they will find her when her babies are born, take them and kill her. Not knowing how to live outside the Line, Naya is lucky when she's taken to see a doctor who happens to be part of an underground group who want to help girls like her - to wipe her from the government's system and give her the freedom she longs for. Things aren't what they seem though, and soon the Line and the government have caught on to their plan and are hunting them down across the city. Naya realizes her pregnancy wasn't accidental and the government wants her and her twins for much bigger purposes than she could've imagined.

It took a bit for the story to get going for me, but once it did - I was sucked in until the end. I wasn't sure I was going to like the book that much because, like I mentioned, I couldn't immerse myself into the story at the beginning. Things picked up on all counts - the plot thickened, the pace grew faster, and the characters began to show depth. From that point on, I was hooked. I love Naya as a main character for the series. She's an incredibly strong woman who has endured unimaginable abuse for the majority of her life.

Carrier, the first installment of The Line duo, introduces us to 22 year old Naya. She’s been convinced by everyone she’s encountered that she is worthless. After spending a large chunk her life being forced to work inside of a government run brothel (The Line), she suddenly has to fend for herself and the babies she is carrying.

This book was an interesting take on a dystopian society. It doesn’t take long to realize the entire middle class has been wiped out, leaving the majority of the citizens of Auberge living in poverty. Circumstances are so bad that The Line, while not a desirable place to be, at least means you know where your next meal is coming from.

I enjoyed reading about this world through Naya’s eyes. The first person POV was written methodically for a while, as if the main character was noticing things around her instead of experiencing them, which was a textbook reflection of her circumstances. It wasn’t until she met people that were genuinely interested in helping her and caring for her that the narration gained some emotion. The story started off a bit slow, and for the first half of the book I had no problems walking away from it. Once I hit the fifty percent mark, I was captivated. That was when it really moved from ‘see what this world is’ to immersing the reader inside of it.

The secondary characters in this book made the story even more enjoyable. It was a take on everyday heroes who were just doing what they knew was right no matter the cost, and it was exposing Naya to a side of people she’d never witnessed before.

My only criticism was how ‘in the know’ Naya was.

I first heard about Carrier a while back from the amazing Megan Erickson. She had read it and was gushing so I looked it up on Goodreads and I fell in love with the synopsis. It just seemed so different from the mainstream New Adult that is out right now and I knew I didn’t something different to read.

Naya hasn’t had a good, let alone easy, life. It’s riddled with abandonment, mistruths and horrible ordeals no one should be put through. She was sold into slavery at a young age and as soon as she hit puberty she was sold to Auberage to work on The Line as a sex slave.

For nine years she’s forced to take 10 appointments a day, every day. I did the math on that, it’s astronomical and I don’t even want to think about how horrible that is. But when she finds out she’s pregnant, when girls on The Line are supposed to be sterile, she’s told her contract is up and is told to find a replacement or she’s to “work” another ten-year contract and her twins will be taken from her when they’re born to also work The Line when they come of age.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I cannot fathom a life like this. It’s completely gruesome. It’s cruel, and no one should be subjected to it in anyway. But such is life in Ann Tibbet’s Carrier. From learning about Naya’s past to everything she’s been put through, it’s astonishing how far Naya has come. She’s strong because she needed to be.

The world building alone in Carrier is enough for me to tell everyone to read this book. It’s so easy to see how the a country can become Auberage and treat it’s people with such contempt, and all in the name of “safety”.
