This book took me by surprise. I was instantly intrigued by the blurb, but sometimes science fiction is a little difficult for me to get into, so I wasn’t sure if I would end up feeling like I had to drag myself through it or if I would enjoy it. Thankfully, it was the latter, and as soon as I got into the story, I found myself unable to put the book down. It had a bit of a The Maze Runner and Maximum Ride kind of feel for me, which is definitely a plus because I’m a fan of both series 🙂
Lezah is imprisoned in one of the most famous prisons known to futuristic America and the only thing she knows for sure is that the countdown on the bracelet she wears says she has six days until her execution. She has no memory of being thrown into prison, nor does she remember what she’s done to end up there. All she remembers is her family and the deep-seated knowledge that she has to get out of there to find them. So, she makes a plan. She’s going to escape the inescapable prison.
Along the way, Lezah gains a couple new friends, a hot guy she used to go to school with and isn’t sure she can trust, and his roommate whom she’s almost positive she can’t trust. Each person is in the prison for a reason and each one is determined to escape along with Lezah.
Without giving too much away, there are a few surprises within the book that were quite clever and helped move the story along at a pretty quick pace. There were so many interesting elements to this book, including the setting of a futuristic America and a whole lot of artificial intelligence. There were also several loose ends left at the end, so I’m hoping the author will continue this story in at least a sequel to answer any remaining questions.
All in all, I enjoyed this book 🙂 I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys science fiction and young adult. And as always, if you read, please let me know in the comments below!
