Born into a post-apocalyptic world, Lake has grown up in the last city standing. Governed by what used to be the Queen’s Cold Stream Guard, vaccinated against the threat, life in Windsor City is both harsh and fair. The rules are designed to strengthen the city and ensure survival.
Lake’s future is planned out with opportunities and unfair advantages and then there’s Ash—her best friend and hopefully more. Things could be worse, considering she’s living past the end of days. And, sometimes, she could definitely do with being a better person, which was what drafting into the Guard for two years of service was supposed to be about.
But she has no idea what she’s signed up for. The city is more vulnerable than she’d ever imagined, on its knees at the mercy of a megalomaniac organisation, and she’s just been chosen to pay the price
What did I think of it:
here's my list as to why I give it 4.5 stars:
1:engageing read. Full of action, romance and goverment lies, that just pulls you in and has you hooked so much that you have to keep reading to find out what happenes next.
2: even though I haven't read the books but only seen bits and pieces of the movies , it reminds me some what of the Hunger Games book series, so if you like or loved those books then you might like or love this series
3; the plot is interesting and unusual
