Ten years after a pandemic swept the globe, survivors were forced into factions and camps in order to survive...
Jade and Sera are two orphans who have found refuge in a government camp. It is there where Jade falls in love with a young soldier, Anyon. But Anyon has his own secrets, carefully guarding a past that involves Sera. But before Jade and Anyon admit their feelings to each other the camp is attacked and they're separated.
Jade knows to lead Sera to Albany, the last free camp in the east, but the road is dangerous.
Not only must they dodge pockets of infection, but they are threatened by drifters and gangs. When they arrive in Albany, they find it deserted.
Anyon and his friend Malachi are close on their heels, but not close enough. The Provisional Government is on a mission, and no one is quite prepared for what lies ahead...

The story was a fascinating dystopian adventure with believable characters. However, the narrator often mispronounces words. instead of "couldn't" She says "coulddin". Instead of "wanted" She says "wannit". Her male voices are also unconvincing and I actually laughed out loud the first time I heard it. The story is 5 stars. The narrator not so much.
Please buy the book! I bought this audio even though the reviews complained about the narrator and her mispronunciations. I thought "it really couldn't be that bad, could it?" YES!!!! It really is that bad. Not only does the narrator mess up the name Andromeda
[really?? it the title of the book for goodness sake!!] , but other names and words too. Not sure I can ever say Malachi the same way again. She also made everyone sound like they were preteen robots. But the preteen and robotic sound I could have handled. At first I thought the mispronunciations were funny but as the book progressed it just got more irritating.
The story was OK. I had to stop listening 30 minutes in because of all the mispronounced words: Andromeda (c'mon - it's the title of the book!), Orion, Malachi. I'll probably finish reading it at some point.
No. Her voice was nice enough but the mispronunciations were a deal breaker for me. If you don't know how to pronounce something, look it up! The dictionaries will read the words for you now.
Good story. Not too many slow parts, I stayed interested. The narration however was hard to listen to. Her voice was very mechanical and when there were changes in the inflection in her voice it was in the wrong place in the story. I struggled to get to the end. I will be reading the remainder of the series.
I might try another book by Bartelloni. I would NOT try another book narrated by Joette Marie.
Any of the narrators that have a voice sounding young like Marie would have been fine as long as the narrator has a full understanding of cadence and can correctly pronounce words. I almost had to stop because I was going crazy with her pronunciation of Andromeda and Malachi...I mean...Mah-Lah-kee...just, no.
