Publisher's summary

Hidden underground, survival is all she knows.

Humanity is on the brink of extinction. After being decimated by a deadly virus, Earth’s population was saved only by the genius of Farrow Corp. Now, the scientists in Farrow’s Labs work tirelessly to search for a cure to the genetic plague that has left everyone hiding below ground, suffering in fear.

Underground survival is dark and dank, an existence Tylia will do anything to escape in order to save her mother from the ravages of illness. There is one answer: the Acceptance Trials. If she survives, her immunity guarantees her and her family a home in the Labs, and a renewed life for her mother.

But the world above is vastly different from what she’s been led to believe. When Tylia is rescued from the jaws of death during the trials by a handsome stranger and discovers that Farrow Corp’s security forces are hunting her, everything she once believed about humanity’s chances for survival are flipped on their head.

Turns out, surviving the virus may be the least of Tylia’s concerns....

Good YA read

I’m a almost 40 year old adult, but I still really liked this book. It was fun and entertaining. Narrator was wonderful.

Unexpected Find-Love It

This book was one that I wanted to keep listening to every chance I got. It is a hunger games type theme but not quite the same. The narrator was good and the story not overly predictable. Looking forward to the next books.

Very hunger games/ divergent. Unique elements too.

This is the fourth book I have read/listened to by this author and I really would like to listen to the next, but I’m in part hoping it will fill in many holes. There are some unexplained, or contradictory, or confusing things. Like why is the virus viable after so long and only in pockets that seem to be random like there is virus on one side of a wall and no virus on the other. Animals or no animals? If so many died above ground how did one survive by hiding. The story follows hunger Games and Divergent so much I found it a bit awkward. There is a unique take however as the author melded the two story ideas into hers. ——-

This is the first book I have listened to by this narrator ( Alexandra Hunter ) and I would listen to another. She has done a decent job with the male and female characters. She gives personalities to the characters that seems to match the story. She has a comfortable pacing and natural cadence to her narration. —-

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence, I don’t recall swearing. ——-

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Great start to a YA dystopian series

There's pieces reminiscent to the Wool series by Hugh Howey and The 100, and I even sensed a dash of The Red Rising, though this book is geared towards a teen/pre-teen audience. This book is safe for your younger audience. There's nothing to give them nightmares or make you, as a parent, cringe.
This book is about a society living beneath the ground in fully functioning pods, complete with ventilation, hydroponics, and living areas. They're survivors of a global pandemic that's wiped out (just about) everyone else.
This story kept a great pace and kept me interested. I enjoyed the characters and their worlds. I can't wait to read book 2 and see what happens next!
Very solid narration, which is super refreshing.
I was provided this book in exchange for an honest review.

Enjoyable Hunger Games meets The 100

I did listen to entire book even though it was The Hunger Games mashed with The 100. Towards the end, the book seemed to be including the main theme from The Maze Runner series also.

Fantastic YA Dystopian Novel

Yes, there are similarities to Hunger Games and Divergent, but there are way more differences than similarities. This first book definitely left me wanting to hear more. It’s like her journey is only just getting started and I can’t wait to find out where it goes from here. Right now I’m suspicious of everyone and everything that comes into contact with Tylia. I need to know more. I need to find out who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. And, if the virus is real, how do they resolve that part of the equation. I’m definitely going to listen to the next book in the series. Although the ending to book one wrapped up nicely, I just need to know more! The narrator of this book is awesome. She really puts the mood in the book. She remains serious and even suspicious sounding always. She keeps you in the mood of the book almost the way theatrical music does during a movie. She does an amazing job with this book! I received this book for free at my request from Audiobook Boom in exchange for my honest review.

Great Story - better than Hunger Games

Many other reviewers compared this to Hunger Games and I thought the same as I started listening. I really liked Hunger Games so a similar story was ok in my book.

I was happy to see that it was more than Hunger Games. I am liking this story even more. There are some questions around how the virus is transmitted - if you can catch it by being on the surface, once you catch it - are you now a carrier and spreading it? Maybe that will be explained later.

In the meantime, I am excited to start the next novel in the series and will be finishing the series!!

Highly recommend the book and will read more of Ramona Finn's books - this was my first and really enjoyed it!

Awesome new dystopian novel

Well written, narration was great. Did not seem like a copycat from other dystopian novels. Definitely recommend.
