Aurora, a smart, resourceful teen, lives in one of four giant, floating cities that were constructed when life on the Earth's surface became untenable. Or so she's been told.
In the blink of an eye, Aurora's life changes when the powers that be turn on her, with tragic consequences. With the help of her best friend Fletcher, she must scramble to escape the only world she's ever known.
Ms. Higgins is great at developing strong heroines, and she has surrounded Aurora with a bevy of colorful characters that make the journey from first page to last page a good one. And the ending ... wow. All I will say is that you will be holding your breath for Book 2.
This is a truly awesome book. If you are a fan of the YA dystopian genre, you'll love this story.
Aurora sees basically the worst thing I can imagine. She watched her mother die. Instead of being able to morn her and move on, she finds herself on the run from the government she's followed all her life. She lives on a floating city and has never known anything else.
What she finds is an underground world on her city and a network of people who are trying to find out the secrets that their leaders will do anything to protect - secrets Aurora is connected to in a way she never could have imagined.
Well written, fun, intriguing, fast-paced. This is one I'm glad I didn't miss.
The idea behind the book is one of the more original stories I've read in a long while..
Aurora lives on one of four floating cities which we created when global warming made the earth unliveable.
On her birthday, her mother is about to tell Aurora a deep, dark family secret. Only, before she can, she's murdered in front of Aurora.
Now on the run, Aurora and her best friend try to find answers.
The action in this is fairly non-stop. Always on the run, going from one safehouse to another, trying to get answers while not getting their heads blown off by the very people who killed her mother.
Personally, I would've loved some deeper world building, but for people who like fast-paced action with splashes of humour, you'll like this one.
Utopia, a Science Fiction novel, by L. J. Higgins follows sixteen-year-old Aurora as she and a team of rebel outcasts seek to expose the truth regarding Earth’s destruction, prior to the creation of four floating cities in which Utopia is included.
The idea of having four floating cities had me in awe. Not since the movie Laputa, Castle in the Sky (an animated film produced by the incredible Studio Ghibli) have I experienced such a wondrous world-building phenomena such as this. I have always dreamt of flying and getting to live within such a city, however, Utopia would not be my ideal home. Why? Three words- The Elite Guard.
Many secrets are kept from Aurora on her perilous journey to uncover the truth. The Elite Guard (essentially the military forces around the four cities) seek to stop her from revealing the truth at every turn, even resorting to murder to fulfil their goals. With her best friend Fletcher at her side, Aurora is eventually able to learn the truth, not just about the condition of Earth and what befell it, but about why she was originally hunted by The Elite Guard to begin with.
Aurora’s courage, bravery and resilience had me egging on the rebels from the very start of the novel. She bonds quickly with the rebel group and soon becomes like a member of their joint family. With that being said, Aurora’s relationship with Fletcher is a sweet and caring one with plenty of banter thrown into the mix. Fletcher is always there to protect Aurroa throughout the novel, even if protecting her means defying his own family and risking his life. I loved everything about their friendship and eagerly await the sequel.
