Set in the future, Erlick does a great job showing us a world that has been destroyed by climate change and greedy people. It was definitely not a place that I wanted to visit, but I was still intrigued by the world nevertheless. The only thing that I was confused about was how they reproduced, since it sounded like there weren’t many men or they were held captive. I didn’t quite follow and wished that was a little clearer, or I could have simply missed that explanation.
Our heroine, Regina Shen, is a very strong character that you want to root for throughout the entire story.
The plot flowed nicely and I read it all in one sitting as it kept me enthralled. I really enjoyed it and will definitely check out the rest of the series. There was a lot of tense areas in the book that left me gripping my kindle tightly.
