After an accident caused by Vincente where Grace is badly hurt, life threateningly so, it starts to become apparent that things might not be what they seem at a surface glance. There were a lot of things to ponder as the story progressed, I’m still curious about some of them that I assume will be touched on in later parts.
Aside from Grace and Vincente’s awesome adventures, there were parts with Grace’s mother that really touched my heart. I enjoyed the layered aspects of this story and think fans of dystopian fiction will find this unique tale a joy to read.
Grace wakes up with no memory of who she is and that's when things go really crazy. Grace and Vincente find not only the corridor outside her room empty but the entire hospital, parking lot, city. It seems like they are the only two people left on earth. This is just the first half of this story and there is much more to learn. Thus far there are many hints but no firm reasons for their predicament nor do we learn what role math plays in the story. A good coming of age adventure.
I really can’t say more without spoilers, but this is a story of wild imagination, fantastic adventure, and mind-bending concepts about the nature of the Universe.
The story moves quickly, with well-developed characters and vividly imagined scenarios. Highly recommended for teens and adults!
Execution of Justice: Covert Ops Military Assassination Thriller
I had to laugh more than a few times since, as a retired school teacher, I noticed the author has teenagers pegged exactly in this book. In the beginning when Grace is tugging up her skirt to get to the shortest allowed length - you have no idea how many times I saw that in my classroom over the years - that action alone in the story showed me the great attention to detail.
I think it is more important than ever to have books available for our youth to read that are truly interesting. While I know vampires have been ever so popular with kids - finding a story that focuses on a coming of age story blended really well with a dystopian theme was a delightful find. While the book is presented as a YA story, I think adults will also enjoy this story.
The first part reads like a mystery novel, which makes you want to keep turning the page. The chapters are short, which sets a great pace for the story to develop. There are lots of romance scenes; some which made me blush (in a good way). I also enjoyed the bits of humor scattered throughout (hailstorm of Home Depot objects, ha!).
Overall, there is a lot to enjoy in this post-apocalyptic YA novel, including great characters, cool fantasy elements, and great descriptive writing.
