Seventeen year old Aria has lived in the enclosed city of Reverie all her life. After failing to hear from her scientist mother, she tries to get information on her whereabouts, but that ends badly, resulting in her exile to the outer wasteland, known as the Death Shop. Aria knows that her chances of survival are slim, between the cannibals and the electrified energy storms. She’s been that even the very air she breathes will kill her. Then, she meets an outsider named Perry. Though he is wild and a savage, he is her only hope of staying alive.
I liked how the author didn’t waste much time explaining all the technical terms used, and jumped straight into the story instead. This is something I really appreciate, as I have a short attention span, and explanations bore me, as well as flashbacks and useless backstory.
