Publisher's summary

The only thing deadlier than the air are the people breathing it.

Sadie can perceive what others cannot. A rare and hazardous gift, it is one she would rather not possess, as its price is great suffering. There is a word used to describe her kind: Martyr.

Wandering the wastelands of a ruined Earth plagued by gangs and Cling - an affliction which shortens the human lifespan to a mere few decades - Sadie's hope to find a slice of utopia fades.

When an act of desperation in a reckless moment sets her on the run from a vicious warlord, her flight leads to a mysterious boy who seems to hold the answers to Sadie's salvation. If she will use her gift to help his community, he vows to share the location of a tunnel deep beneath the ground - a tunnel revealed to Sadie in a fever dream as the key to defeating her pursuers.

But when Sadie enters the tunnel, what she discovers plunges the boy's community into unimaginable peril. Fortunately, Sadie has a few tricks up her sleeve - and an old acquaintance with a notorious set of skills who just may agree to join the fray.

saloons, underground people and the apocalypse

I really enjoyed this listen. I was sucked in right from the first scene and hooked all the way through. The atmosphere and world that is created by the author is really enticing. Everything seems to be inter related throughout this story but you don't notice it until late in the book. Our characters are all pretty bad ass but Tier, who I share a certain trait with just grows on you and you can't help but like him but feel a little bad for him at times too. One thing I particularily liked is how the author makes mention that some children were born after the event and are now learning about the former world as history lessons. I loved the premise of clear, being a Martyr and having different abilities. Some of the nicknames were also cool and made me laugh. I also liked the resourcefulness of the characters and the imagination of the author, even with regards to food items. If I could change something about the story... well I would have to say that things wrap up quickly and a little too neatly for my liking. I would have liked to see more struggle and chaos. The author does mention some storylines and characters but does not go into detail with them, could there be some spin off stories or perhaps another story set in this amazing universe? Let's hope so. The narration was done really, really well. His voice is almost so creepy and has that cadence to it that it really adds something to the universe. The tone and emotion he brings scene to scene is really noticeable. You can really tell the difference from male to female characters as well because of the voices he gives to each character. Definitely give this one a try it is worth it. **I received a free copy of this audiobook from the publisher, author or narrator in exchange for an honest review via Audiobook Blast.
