Well..... I have finished this novel and I truly liked it and will purchase the next book.

It was interesting to read the start of this book as it reminded me of novels from the 18 and 19 century that place their story in the context of society, to some all the explanations of how humans were their own slayers, might appear slow - but I thought it prepared me for what will become Enora's path.

I look forward to reading more about Drake, Stringer, Bram, Lina and even Safa (I hope she is still alive) along with Enora.

The premise if the book is that water has become almost impossible to find and huge swathes of the country and in other countries on various continents land is inhospitable or even deadly and a tyrannical force rule the survivors but controlling water supplies.

Enora is recruited to be part of this benevolent sinister company as a spotter map creator, however in this debut instalment she is already questioning the ethics of the company..... but she must survive and also not endanger her parents - so many ethical and ambivalent choices..... survival but at what moral price.

An excellent tale to be read - slowly and not give up during the prequel - IT IS VERY IMPORTANT in the story but could happen to our planet if .....

Cheers Linda.
Good Points
A well plotted book - the start may appear slow but it is essential to read for the story and our own awareness.
