Publisher's Summary

Acadia, the last human city. For 200 years, vicious creatures have laid siege to the city, leaving the land rough with the bodies of the fallen. For Cojax, training to become a defender of the city is his greatest ambition. That all changes when a girl from outside the city walls appears - from a land that supposedly held no life. Her presence threatens to undermine the entire society, putting Cojax in an impossible situation. He must now choose between what is right and what is necessary for humanity to survive.

MOST EXCITING BOOK I'VE LISTENED TO IN YEARS!!!

I loved everything about this book. It was such an awesome combination of old world Greek/Roman battle styles and armor with a futuristic distopia. The characters were amazing and the plot pulled me in right away.

Please, please, please write a sequel!!!

just plain awesome!!!!!!!!

This book is a page Turner! Food, sleep, and general hygiene took a back seat while I was sucked into this Epic experience. The concept was compelling. Acadia is the last human city, or so the people are told, but the sudden appearance of Jessica turns the city upside down. Excellent emotion and depth of the characters. I loved the plot twists and turns. It goes very much different than you think.

Things I loved
-Epic world building
-interesting society
-hero's that are likeable and realistic
-the elements of Greek society

Couldn't stop listening to this book.

What made the experience of listening to Acadia the most enjoyable?

This is seriously a good read.I couldn't put it down. I think it's as well-written as Ender's Game but more in the style of Brandon Sanderson. Nixon is one of my favorite authors, and this is his best work yet.

Gripping story. Plan on spending your free time listening to this book until you finish it, because it's impossible not to get sucked in.
This is the first book I've listened to from Nixon, and he is certainly a gifted writer. His character development, imagery of a complex world, and unexpected plot twists made the story come alive. I would love to see this made into a movie!

Surprised I haven't heard of this book sooner.

Give it a read if you are a Red Rising fan, but don't expect Red Rising. It's got a lot of similarities but it is its own work. I believe it is supposed to be a trilogy.

Great Book

This book is a mixture of the Hunger Games and Falling Skies. The book keeps you wondering to the very end. It is a thinkers book. Would recommend it for those who like science fiction.
