Alice Walshe has led a very charmed life, until now. Twenty years after a pandemic crippled the country, things are finally back on track and her father, a major player at real estate giant Cerulean Holdings, has made billions renewing the pockets of urban decay that were left behind. As his protégé, she has accompanied him to one such area named Ypsilanti Bloc, a particularly valuable site due to its proximity to a major thriving city. When their airship is attacked by Ypsilanti's biggest militia, however, Alice and her brother, Cody, only barely escape and end up as the sole survivors of the crash.
Alice emerges from the drop ship to find herself trapped in the very Bloc that her father was meant to re-purpose - a ruined city that militias, gangs, and even cannibals now call home. She is discovered by a pair of teens who have tracked the wreck hoping to scavenge anything useful, and with few options open to her, she employs their help to find her brother and get home. Things grow more complicated, however, when she realizes that the attack may not have been random, and that Cerulean's renewal project may not be as benign as she had been brought up to believe.

This was a very interesting book. I never read or listen to books twice, but if I did, I would listen to this again.
I have not.
