ABOUT THE BOOK:
Flashfall by Jenny Moyer
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Release Date: November 15th 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Dystopia
Orion is a Subpar, expected to mine the tunnels of Outpost Five, near the deadly flash curtain. For generations, her people have chased cirium—the only element that can shield humanity from the curtain’s radioactive particles. She and her caving partner, Dram work the most treacherous tunnel, fighting past flash bats and tunnel gulls, in hopes of mining enough cirium to earn their way into the protected city.
But when newcomers arrive at Outpost Five, Orion uncovers disturbing revelations that make her question everything she thought she knew about life on both sides of the cirium shield. As conditions at the outpost grow increasingly dangerous, it’s up to Orion to forge a way past the flashfall, beyond all boundaries, beyond the world as she knows it.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an advance copy of Flashfall for an honest review.
Flashfall is full of action, suspense, and swoon!!! I loved Orion as a strong female lead and Dram as a swoon worthy companion. This debut by Jenny is perfect for fans of The 100, The Maze Runner, and Red Risisng series. This book is a dystopian/sci-fi, fast paced and will grip you right from the start.
Orion and Dram are searching for something in the caves that could buy them and their families their freedom. Radiation has started to affect and kill some. The elements are dangerous. Both have lost loved ones and are determined to protect what they have left. Orion believes if they can just get to the protected city they will be safe. Dram starts to question if that will really be the case.
They soon discover secrets about the world outside where they have lived their whole lives. They start to plan their escape.
What will they discover and how will it change their future? Can they escape their home and be free?
Flashfall is a great start to what I hope will be a series. It had moments I wanted expanded on in the world building and the outside world but I am hoping that is to come. The relationship and characters are fantastic and the book is one I highly enjoyed. I am giving Flashfall 4 out of 5 stars.
