This is not my normal genre but as a reader of Kim Petersen, I could not go pass on giving this book a read. This book had a Hunger Games feel to it for me, this new dystopian novel is set in the wastelands of Seattle in the Post-Apocalyptic World. I have not read anything by the other two authors before this book and I must say it is very hard to notice that it has been written by three authors at all, as it reads very smoothly. This is a fast pace, action pack suspenseful read full of drama, danger and secrets that will have you turning your page to find out more. This is the first book in a series so it does end on a bit of a cliffhanger to lead us to the next instalment. I received an ARC copy of this book for my voluntary honest review which I would highly recommend to others.
