Synopsis

In a decimated world, setting foot outside the protected village of Tallas is certain death—or so they say. Mutations caused by those in the wilderness have plagued Tallas’s citizens—or so they say…

For Doogan and Keeyla their belief in a Free Tallas has lost its glimmer. And when their young son, Fabal, is given a very dangerous assignment, they risk everything to protect him. Fleeing Tallas, they head for the wilderness. But when they are ambushed by cruel Mediators, Doogan is recaptured, and while Keeyla and Fabal escape, she is severely injured. Can the two of them survive in the wilderness? Will Doogan getaway from the clutches of the Mediators? And are the terrible legends about the monsters beyond the walls of Tallas true?

***Cianna #NerdGirlSunshine Review***
 Wow!! What a ride! I owe this author an apology for how long it took me to get this book on my list, but I’m so glad I did! This dystopian tale is gripping, well written and detailed. The author has developed such a lush vivid world that you can’t help but sinking into it, and getting lost.

The back of the book begins,”In a decimated world, setting foot outside the protected village of Tallas is certain death—or so they say. Mutations caused by those in the wilderness have plagued Tallas’s citizens—or so they say…”

That hooked me! I love to see how authors imagine our world in the future. Constantine effectively manages the heavy action sequences, and the genetic mutations with grace. It’s well written, believable, and intriguing. All the characters lift from the page, and the plot twists are unexpected and gripping.

It really makes us face the thought of how far we would go to protect those we love? I love dystopian stories for that reason, for the fact that the plot challenges you, and if it’s a good story, it changes you just a little bit. You never look to the future in the same way.

Overall, I throughly enjoyed this book. I felt the family dynamic was strong and the writing is intelligent and focused. I highly recommend this novel to anyone interested in YA or NA SciFi, and looking for a book that will not only entertain but seriously keep them guessing until the end!
