About the Book:
They tell me the country looked different back then.
They talk of open borders and flowing rivers.
They say the world was green.
But drought swept across the globe and the United States of the past disappeared under a burning sky.
Enora Byrnes lives in the aftermath, a barren world where water has become the global currency. In a life dominated by duty to family and community, Enora is offered a role within an entity that controls everything from water credits to borders. But it becomes clear that not all is as it seems. From the wasted confines of her small town to the bowels of a hidden city, Enora will uncover buried secrets that hide an unthinkable reality.
As truth reveals the brutal face of what she has become, she must ask herself: how far will she go to retain her humanity?
This is a genre I don’t normally read. I joined the first #ultimateblogtour with Dave @the_WriteReads. So, I gave this genre a try. I think anyone that likes this type of book will love it.
The book starts out sorta normal. With Enora getting ready to graduate from high school. She has a best friend named Safa who she interacts with until she gets recruited. She will train to be a Sentinel and interact with drones, and witness a lot of things that will surprise her.
This is a first of a series and it does a little cliffhanger. However, I am not sure if I will read the next book or not. It was easy reading even if was strange to me. It did have some bad language in it. Only a small part of the book and I found out after reading most of the book.
I did receive a complimentary copy of the book for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. This is my own opinion.
