Like a modern day Adam and Eve couple, Don and Janet explore their dystopian paradise as a source of hope and a new life. While a relatively short book, there is much to be seen here, it is filled with interesting characters and challenges. A recommended read for mature teens due to some sexual content.
I liked the passion of the protagonists and how the unexpected taught them about who they were. I don't want to spoil anything, but I think my favorite part about the story is the dedication of the characters - to what they believed to be right. It spoke to my heart!
This was a fun read for me; light enough to enjoy while having enough action, romance, and heartbreak to give it depth. Well done!
Synopsis (from the author): When runaway teenagers Don and Janet pull off the mountainside road just outside of Albuquerque for a few hours’ rest, they don’t expect to wake up 1000 years in the future, in a world they can’t recognize.
There, Earth is a desert planet where nomadic tribes are little more than slaves to the Ganu, the powerful and dominant ruling tribe.
When the young couple is befriended by a small tribe, and Don is hailed as their mythical and prophesied savior, they must use all their cunning and resourcefulness to defeat a powerful, cruel enemy and save the lives of their new friends.
What I liked: The story of the runaways swept me up right away. I identified with their desire to get away and chase their dreams. The arrival in the future to a very grim environment was pretty cool, and the bugs that attacked them were excellent. I enjoyed the adventures with the car and the nomads who befriend the pair are great. The battle scene was satisfying, too. All told, a wonderful short read!
What I didn’t like: I prefer books that tie up loose ends. For me, it was never clear why the car horn or the dog whistle had the effects that they did. The ending was a bit contrived for me, too.
Overall impression: This was a nice read for my travels. It isn’t too long and wasn’t burdened down with unnecessary details. The story moves along nicely, and the characters are easy to identify with and root for in their battles. Great fun read!
My rating: 4.5 Stars (rounded to 5 Stars)
