Blurb from back of book

The life William knew has gone. His world has been left devastated by the Fossil War. All major governments have been wiped out and the land is now under the control of the company Terrafall. Although Terrafall’s intentions seem honest, William wonders if the company will live up to its promises and stop the tremors, which have been plaguing the Earth since the end of the war. And can Terrafall really find out who is behind the recent wave of abductions?

When someone close to William disappears, he decides it’s time to take matters into his own hands. But in a land that is on the verge of tearing itself apart, is it a life worth fighting for? If your world was falling apart, how far would you go to save it?



My Review 


I don’t normally read dystopian books, but thought I would give it a read. It follows the story of William, who I think is 15. The world is recovering from fossil war leaving the planet suffering terrible tremors. People have started to go missing and when William’s mum disappears leaving a pool of blood in her Kitchen, William and his best friend Althea go on a mission to find his mum and to stop Terrafall who they think are behind all the dissapearance.

The story didn’t really grip me at first, I think this was mainly because I haven’t really read this type of book before. But has I got through each chapter, I couldn’t wait to read the next one.

The best part of the book is the very end. I love a book with a good ending and this one was great. Overall this book wasn’t my normal cup of tea, but I did enjoy reading it and will be reading the next book in the series. As it is a YA book, it’s more of a book I think my eldest son would enjoy reading in a year or two.

I give it a 3.5/5 stars.

Any fan of dystopian novels will find this book a firm favourite!

  1. I really enjoyed the Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver. Although marketed to teenagers, I found the story facinating.

  2. I haven’t read dystopian novel/s. Would like to win, then I could have first experience of reading a dystopian novel.

  3. I am a huge fan of dystopian novels – which makes choosing one particular favourite incredibly difficult. I would say that perhaps Luke Duffy’s ‘When there is no more room in hell…’ series though, simply because it is incredibly well written by a man who has experience in one element of the novels and it really shows!

  4. Have you read any dystopian novels before? If so, which is your favourite? . . . . . . not yet – l hope this may be the first

  5. I’ve read a few that I think would be dystopian. I enjoyed The Hunger Games trilogy. I think I’d classify The Giver in this category, and it was really thought provoking. The grim future of The Time Machine gripped me. And my favorite (that would usually be classified as horror by most people) is The Stand. I’m still amazed that Stephen King wrote a novel where the end of the world is the prologue.

  6. I have read a few but I think my favourites are still the first two I read: Brave New World and In the Country of Last Things (I could not believe one of the things happening – will not give it away). They are both amazing!
