Desperate to find refuge from the nuclear storm, a group of civilians discover a secret government bio-dome. Greeted by a hail of bullets and told to turn back, the frantic refugees stand their ground. They are grudgingly permitted entry, but the price of admission is high. Two hundred and eighty-three years later…
Life as a slave in the Pit had never been easy, but for seventeen-year-old Sunny O’Donnell it was quickly falling apart. Her mother had been killed in the annual spring Cull, leaving her alone with a father who was no longer interested in living the short time he had left. Not that she blamed him for mourning. Her own heart was aching with overwhelming grief. But if they didn’t earn enough credits to keep their place inside the Pit, they would be kicked out into a world still teeming with radiation. That left her to earn the credits for both of them, and it didn’t help that her boyfriend, Reyes Crowe, was pressuring her to marry him and abandon her father.
Sunny didn’t think life could get any worse until a chance encounter with Leisel Holt, the president’s daughter, and her fiancé, Jack Kenner, leaves her accused of treason. Slated for execution, she escapes with a man she considers an enemy and discovers she not only has to work with him to survive, but also to lead the revolution.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I am shocked this is this author’s first book. It is excellently written, fast-paced, and loads of fun. I highly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys post-apocalyptic fiction.
Wonderful believable characters. Amazing details and descriptions. I was fully immersed not wanting to leave the pit or dome and go back to reality. I was so lucky to have stumbled upon this book. Thanks for an awesome new read!
This story has amazing characters and depth! I’m not a reviewer that likes to spoil books for others, so I will simply say, if you loved the HG series as much as I did, get this book now!
I love, love, loved this novel!! I’m a huge fan of post-apocalyptic fiction and this exceeded all of my expectations. I read it in a day, I was literally unable put it down. I cannot wait for the second novel in the series!!
This book truly blew my mind. It is pure GENIUS. At first, I thought it would be another boring dystopian novel. But as I got into the book, it sucked me in and did not let go. I finished this book in under two days because I could not stop reading.
