i received a free e-book in exchanged for a review. the book was an extremely fast read. despite the post-apocalypse backdrop, i was pleased to find the story wasn't as complicated. the excitement started right from the very first few pages and had me felt engaged throughout the book. the precise and straightforward plot came as a surprise to me, but all because of its simplicity, i was able to sit back and joined Fayth, Rowan, and Dillon on their long and dangerous journey. i was absolutely delighted with the amount of creatures the book introduced, i was constantly googling for a picture or two just to know what the trio were up against, making the read even more fun than it already was. seeing how the story played out, i was very intrigued with how the second installment would turn out to be.
