It’s been 133 years since the Specters invaded Earth. Like ghosts they haunt the planet, devouring anyone foolish enough to venture outside the last remaining protected cities. For some, venturing out isn’t a choice–it’s a necessary evil to prove yourself to your clan as you come of age.
But when a team of ambitious youth—New Adults—undertakes a mission deep in Specter territory, they discover a terrible secret. Everything they’ve learned may be wrong … and Earth is in grave danger.
I was very happy with the way Ken Brosky wove his story. It all started with the most imporant part, setting the scene. When reading about a Dystopian world, we really need to understand where the characters are and what the world they are living is like. I think that Brosky really managed to nail that aspect of the novel.
