Book Summary


Aria has lived her whole life in the protected dome of Reverie. Her entire world confined to its spaces, she's never thought to dream of what lies beyond its doors. So when her mother goes missing, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland long enough to find her are slim.

Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He's searching for someone too. He's also wild - a savage - but might be her best hope at staying alive.

If they can survive, they are each other's best hope for finding answers.
My Review
It is refreshing to read a dystopian novel that isn’t depressing. Although the mood is somber, it doesn’t have that clawing feeling that brings you down.
There is an unwrapping to the story that is slow, yet it doesn’t read slow. There is plenty that is going on/action to capture and keep your attention. The world building enough to let you know what’s going on but allow for some mystery to keep you going. Don’t misinterpret. This isn’t Bloodlines or Delirium that dragged on for pages until you get to the good part.
What is also surprising is the romance that buds like a flower when you didn’t need it for the story to be good. There was enough going on, that the romance was extra and a cherry on top.
There is a cliffy at the end, so be prepared. But also note that, book two is already released. In fact, I’m listening to it now. So have no fear to start reading.
Audio Review
Bernadette Dunne Flagler - I didn’t like the smoker’s raspy voice at first. But damn it if she didn’t pull this on off with flying colors. That initial voice doesn’t carry through to the individual characters who sound youthful and distinctively male and female. Great job.
My Book Boyfriend is Perry.
