***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
family. She is now alone living in a city that is surrounded by immense graveyards that are inhabited by dangerous gangs that rule by fear and hold the inhabitants under their thumbs. It’s a game of life and death and only the strong survive.
The main character, Jess, lives alone. With friends, Ian, Lucie and Molly, she set out to find The Promised Land. The characters begin to quickly evolve as their world devolves, setting the tone for a great coming of age/dystopian story. The author builds a world that will keep you on edge and also sprinkled in a bit of romance and friendship to soften the suspenseful setting.
Gangs activity, rape, drug activity and other crime would probably tip the young adult crowd to the more mature readers, but there is nothing really over the top. The book is intense, to say the least and kept me intrigued from the beginning. I look forward to reading the next installment. The author did a fantastic job of creating an original feel to the ever-popular dystopian genre. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
