As you can tell, this was a hard book to put down. While away from it, thoughts of what was happening kept wandering through my mind. I held back from calling my brother though. Let him suffer not knowing her fate! Okay I did send a text to let him know she was alive at the end of the book but who knows for how long because she was entering The Deadlands. He texted back asking if the walls were really padded in the mental hospital. I have a good mind to leave him in the dark about her fate in the Deadlands! That will teach him.
Most of my post-apocalyptic reads involve zombies. This book had none of those but there were other creatures. Those scenes are not often nor long but they were intense. I was picturing everything as I read which probably helped with the intensity. There is a romance going on. Normally I am bothered by that, (unless it truly fits the story, I just don't understand). This is one of those rare books where it fits. So far there has been no sex. I like the relationship between Rayn and Luc. It gives each chances at being the strong and weak one. The message I kept getting was that teamwork was important for survival. I would say it is good for teens and up. I have already been telling people to get this book.
I would like to thank BookTasters on Twitter for introducing me to this book. I would like to thank the author for providing me an ebook for review purposes, though no review was promised. All opinions and experiences were mine.
Just a little background before getting into this book. After natural disasters hit the coasts of the United States and swept through most of the country, society has put itself back together. It has formed five enclaves, or cities, where people live together and survive. Humanity is just trying to survive. And there are the Wildlands surround each enclaves and then there is the Deadlands which divides the enclaves from East and West. There is Chicago, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Spokane and some other ones. Fuels and gas seem to not exist anymore. Society ran out of them decades ago. Each seventeen year old has to make this “sojourn” to their assigned enclaves. Some of these kids make it and some do not. Each journey is vastly different from the next. In the schooling system of the enclave, they try and prepare each person for this journey.
This is the first book of the series. We meet Rayn, a seventeen year old from the Las Vegas enclave. She is about to embark on her journey to Atlanta. A couple of days into her journey she is joined by her boyfriend, Luk. There is obviously some drama before she leaves for her Sojourn, but it is eventually resolved. They are embarking on this journey together to get to Atlanta. You see them face wild animals, people who prey on the sojourners, and other hardships throughout this book. The story leaves you wanting more and to find out what happens to Rayn and Luk.
I honestly cannot recommend this book enough to my friends and family.
