Synopsis:It's been 133 years since the Specters invaded Earth. Like ghosts they haunt the planet, devouring anyone foolish enough to venture outside the last remaining protected cities. For some, venturing out isn't a choice--it's a necessary evil to prove yourself to your clan as you come of age.
But when a team of ambitious youth—New Adults—undertakes a mission deep in Specter territory, they discover a terrible secret. Everything they've learned may be wrong ... and Earth is in grave danger.
I was given a book in exchange for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.
In the future, Earth is overpowered by Specters. Forced to live behind shields, New adults 18 year olds including Skye and young adults 13-17 year olds including Skye's brother Cassy going on their proving trip. Skye was taught not to trust anyone, especially someone outside her Spartan clan. Once the journey begins, it soon becomes apparent that they were not told everything.
This is a highly entertaining YA post apocalyptic sci fi book. The world is described vividly. The characters are well developed, and the book transitions smoothly between them. It is a fascinating adventure that is well paced. It keeps you interested and wanting to know what happens next. I really enjoyed this book. It is the first book I've read by this author, but it will not be the last.
