I enjoyed this novel! I found the topics to be different and the world building to have a new feel compared to other YA dystopian. The characters were developed according to their age. Not too deep and not too young sounding.
If you like dystopian then go for it.
Fighting to survive in a ravaged world, a Dweller and a Savage form an unlikely alliance in New York Times bestselling author Veronica Rossi’s “unforgettable dystopian masterpiece” (Examiner.com).
Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—known as The Death Shop—are slim. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild—a savage—and her only hope of staying alive. A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile—everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria’s help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption.
Kinda SPOILERS AHEAD:
I liked Aria for the most part, and the love interest was quite attractive, all tough and rough like. The world was a new idea in the YA realm and I appreciate the deviations. However, WHY THE DESERT WANDERING?! It’s like the Old Testament has been rewritten in the form of YA dystopia. Stop wandering in deserts! Luckily, we didn’t have to deal with the annoying sexual tension. That was an upper.
Can I just say… I sort of agree with the no mixing of talents thing?
In my opinion they Should’ve spent more time with Marron, or created other places that were a new setting.
