First off yay for indie published authors This irl was actually a local college student in my town so WHOOPThis book was really ood I was surprised how original it was considering that most dystopianrebellion kind of books usually aren t any It did follow a few of the cliches and tropes but overall I was pleasantly surprised by a lot of the twistsNow I know since it s an indie book some of y all are wondering if it s one of those typical indie books I m happy to say that it wasn t It did have a few of its moments with purple prose telling instead of showing and slightly jilted conversations which are a few novice mistakes but overall it was very well writtenI really liked the plot I m kind of scared that there will be a love triangle in the second book but I do like how Penny had eyes only for James the whole book loyalty is refreshing That being said I do hope to read the next book I m not necessarily hooked it s hard to hook me but I m interested and curious As for content there is romance but it just has really light sweet kissing I was never sold on the romance because I didn t really et to know James but it was sweet There is no swearing I was thinking about it earlier because there was no swearing but it Anadromous Fish Resources got kind of awkward where there normally would be swearing an example of this is in the book Penny twists her ankle and she literally calls out in pain FLIPPING ANKLE so I was torn and still am torn between calling this a novice mistake or just saying that it was cute I do hope Dawn continues to keep her future works clean but maybe in a less noticeable formOverall I enjoyed this Source Downloaded for free from couk and the author reuested a review18 year old Penny lives in a dystopian society where most of man kind has been killed by a virus Penny now lives in a small community on an island where everybody has vines black markings thatrow on their skin to show that they are special and immune to the plagueWhen an emergency arises and Penny s parents American Headway 5 Teachers Book Amp Test give her a vaccine and tell her to run away to find her sister Madeline who lives outside the community because she was born without vines Penny and her friend James leave to search for MadelineCan Penny find Madeline And was everything that sherew up believing a lieThis was an okay story but I didn t love itPenny was an okay character and she obviously cared a lot for her family and friends I did think she over reacted at one point but it was understandable really Considering what she was facing she was a ood personThe storyline in this was okay although I did lose interest after a while I m not sure why The world building was okay the story was okay I just didn t really love it I also felt that there were some big chunks of information in there that were a bit hard to take in all in one oThere was some romance which again was Okay I Really Wanted Penny And James I really wanted Penny and James work out their differences and be happy together thoughThe ending was a little odd Everything seemed to suddenly fast forward to the end and I was left a little confused over exactly what happened If what I think happened actually happened then it was uite sad and I was still a little confused over Penny s sister MadelineOverall okay story but I didn t love it6 out of 10 The earthuakes that destroyed the world are history to Penny something to ponder on while she lives in the colony trying to follow the rules and do her part to keep civilization alive She feels content knowing that her intelligence and her boyfriend James strength have set them up with ood careers The vaccine now integrated into their DNA keeps them safe from illnesses that wiped out so many lives Everything changes though when Penny is taken from her home on the pretense of being sick and faces either exile or execution Either option is terrifying but the secrets Penny uncovers may be even frightening Set after the world has been destroyed by earthuakes Penny s life in the colony is uite interesting The society and laws were carefully planned out to ive the community a stable but somewhat eerie feel This is the life Penny is used to but readers et the impression that everything isn t as is seems early on
Readers Wont Be Let Down By The Myriad Of Lies wont be let down by the myriad of lies half truths Penny uncovers as she fights to escape the colony before she is killed The characters in this book were interesting as well Penny is a likable character form the start She is rather naive but in a believable way and she has other characters like Lucan to contrast her desire to believe the best about people and the situation they are in Lucan was a reat character as well I enjoyed his playful attitude yet serious resourcefulness He added lightness when it was needed and strength when Penny needed him James Penny s boyfriend was a little harder for me to connect with He s rather serious and not terrible affectionate so I think some readers will have a harder time warming up to him I m interested to see how his character develops and whether or not Penny stays with him The adventure throughout the book was well paced after an initially slow first chapter of introducing readers to Penny s world The action flowed well from scene to scene and Husted provided lulls when.

The characters needed to breathe and contemplate what was happening The overall idea of the book was very interesting I suspected from the beginning that there would be something of a twist and indeed there was Several Before Penny leaves the colony her father tells her that her sister whom she believed was dead is still alive Penny s journey to find her proves uite interesting There were a few scenes toward the end where I thought the emotion from the characters didn t reach it s full potential and the last few chapters seemed a little slow but overall I enjoyed this book It was a fast entertaining read and aside from some editing errors was an enjoyable book I m interested to see how this series progresses and where Penny ends up in the end Check out my other reviews at The Edible Bookshelf free copy was received from the author in exchange for an honest reviewThe cover of this book is bland and looks pretty weird The summery of the book seems boring to be honest But I wanted to read this book anyways and im lad I did It was really ood A lot better then I thought it would be I have read a lot of dystopian books this year but this one was really Felicity Jones Rendezvous Jones Sisters 2 good Definitely an enjoyable read by Husted I am looking forward to see what book she comes out with next Penelope Evans is eighteen years of age and she lives in the Colony with her family and the other survivors This story is set Post apocalypse One day as she finishes up in the lab her ID card begins to flash This begins a disturbance of affairs that lead further and further away from her normality and closer to the truth Penelope and James both wander outside of the Colony in hopes of finding Penelope s sister who was unknown to Penelope previously James Garak who also attends the Academy has a relationship with Penelope No one expected their relationship to last but it has lasted over a year James and Penelope are the romantic element of Safe It was nice to see a female heroine that was notirly and overly whiney Definitely enjoyed that about PenelopeSafe definitely was not the type of book that I usually read Saying that Husted s book might have Kampfraum Arnheim gotten me hooked Iive Safe a 45 but I rounded up There was sometimes a little bit of redundancy but the plot and storyline was uite compelling The ending could have also been a little bit complete I was provided with a free copy of this book to review I was in no way paid or coerced into writing a positive review I would have When Jesus Became God given this book five stars easy if I hadn t been heartbroken by the ending Just an explanation of why I onlyave this book 4 starsOkay here we Captured By Fate Max Amp Kate 1 go I received this book for free from the author Dawn Husted in exchange for an honest review Honestly this deal favored me because this book was soood I loved almost everything about it from the characters to the plot to the conflict to the characters Wait I said characters twice didn t I Yes I did mainly because I loved the characters so muchThe main character was a irl named Penny She was FINALLY a strong female protagonist that I had absolutely no problems with She Was Strong But She Also Didn T Have A was strong but she also didn t have a with etting help from the boys when she needed it She was incredibly smart and she was also
