What else can I say? It's wonderful...exciting, interesting, sad at times and funny at others. The main characters, Rayn and Luk are the kind of fictional creations that you sort of wish were real...that you could actually meet them.

Their journey across the remains of the United States is harrowing and exciting and it kept me enthralled the entire time. I understand that the second book in the series is due to be released some time this year...I can't wait!

This is definitely worth a read!
Good Points
I've only been reading YA for a few years, and I have enjoyed most of the titles I've picked up, but I was blown away by this book. It looks like it was self published back in 2013 and then picked up by Fire & Ice publishing in 2015. I can't understand why it wasn't picked up by a publisher two years ago.

The writing style is loose and easy, with a strong voice from the main character, Rayn. The story is unique and interesting and actually has something to say about where the world may be heading if we're not careful.
