Series: (Article 5, #3)
Author: Kristen Simmons
Ember Miller and Chase Jennings are ready to stop running. After weeks spent in hiding as two of the Bureau of Reformation’s most wanted criminals, they have finally arrived at the safe house, where they hope to live a safe and quiet existence. And all that’s left is smoking ruins.
Devastated by the demolition of their last hope, Ember and Chase follow the only thing left to them—tracks leading away from the wreckage. The only sign that there may have been survivors.
With their high profile, they know they can’t stay out in the open for long. They take shelter in the wilderness and amidst the ruins of abandoned cities as they follow the tracks down the coast, eventually finding refugees from the destroyed safe house. Among them is someone from Chase’s past—someone he never thought he’d see again.;
I’m pissed off at this series sense book one. Why did I read all 3 of them? Don't ask me, I don’t know!
The plot and its twist were way to naïve for the audience it was intended and the subject it covered. And before you go on and attack me saying I’m too old for this book, I’ll tell you – I’ve read plenty of books in this genre that had insightful and original plots and not at all stupid.
This whole series would've made much more sense if it was placed in the universe inhabited and ruled by preteens.
- Example: They escaped from prison in the first book simply by treating the Guard to TELL ON HIM if he doesn't let them go.
The MC was shaped like amoeba. She felt like blob moving through the story.
Was she pretty – I don’t know, in my mind eye all I saw was a blob (can a blob be pretty?). Was she smart? – I don’t know, all I saw was a blob (no place for brain in the blob, thought). Was she funny? No.
Her voice was that of a middle aged woman way past her menopause. Monotone and Jaded. I understand when person goes through a lot and ages beyond its actual age, but this lady was never young to begin with.
Its obvious that this book was solely written for the romance which unsurprisingly was the only think worth reading.
So, if you feel like reading romance in a dystopian setting - read something else.
