    Good Premise

    The story is written in Dual pov (Sam and Serene) Serena and Kial, despite their broken friendship, work together to rescue Sam, a technopath, who has been caught by the Institute. Much of the story is world building. Sam, to understand his parents' sacrifice and the world he's grown up in, while hiding. Serena, to understand her drive to take down the Institute, and the absence of one to comfort her through the hardships she's had to endure. There is much to lose, but more to gain if they can stay alive and out of the clutches of the Institute and its soldiers that are tracking them down. I thought the story had a good premise, though most dystopians are similar to me. We are not told why the world is the way it is, just how it works and who is in control. I liked that there was no blasphemy, it was replaced with Google. There was mild cussing, sparsely used, but there. There is violence, fighting and training. There is no sex, but there is unrequited love, both same sex and opposite sex. I did not understand the rain and why there had been none for so long, maybe I missed it while reading. I did find myself skimming in spots. The details just seemed to go on and on in places. The story ends on a cliffhanger, which I'm never happy about. But I am not sure I would consider reading the next book. I received a free copy of this book from BookSprout in exchange for an honest review.

    Amazing

    I LOVED IT. McAdam's striking writing style boldly brings this action-packed adventure to life. The words and descriptions flow easily from one line to the next. I would recommend it to those who like intense, action-packed, fantastical reads.
