It is the future, and the world ain't what it once was.

Britain is ruled under military occupation, and all attempts of sedition are quelled violently, and criminals are sent to the colonies - the former United States - for the merest of infractions.

Abandoned by their parents as children, sisters Dawn and Gabby live rough on the streets of London. But when a lapse in judgment gets Gabby arrested and sent to a slave labor camp in the colonies, little sister Dawn must discover courage she never knew she had to save the only family she has left. While Gabby struggles for survival inside, Dawn finds unlikely allies to help reunite her family.

Told in alternating first-person POVs between Dawn and Gabby (and, on a couple of occasions, Gabby's friend and Dawn's ally Drew), the story unfolds slowly but gathers steam quickly, and I found myself glued to my Kindle, hoping against hope that Dawn and Gabby could not only be reunited but escape with their lives. The story ended on a cliffhanger that has me itching to start the next chapter in the saga!

Well done, Michelle Lynn. Very well done.
