Description

Gold Medal Winner, Young Adult Fiction — Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Independent Publisher's Moonbeam Children's Book Awards

One thousand years after a cataclysmic event leaves humanity on the brink of extinction, the descendants of the chosen survivors take refuge in thirteen contingency shelters buried deep underground, at the bottom of the ocean, and in the far reaches of outer space. In the underwater 13th Continuum, sixteen-year-old Myra Jackson has heard rumors and whisperings all her life of a magical place called "The Surface” where people could breathe fresh air, feel the warmth of something called sunlight on their skin, and see things known as stars and trees and mountains. Myra has never dared to ask whether the stories are true, since the act of speaking such words aloud is an offense punishable by death. But after she discovers that the air supply aboard her underwater colony is running out, she realizes that her only hope for survival is to find this mysterious place. To get there, she must first recover the only guide to the Surface—the Beacon, an ancient device that also connects her to Captain Aero Wright, a dashing young soldier from one of the only remaining space colonies. With the fate of all humankind depending on them, Myra and Aero must escape the tyrannical forces that rule their colonies, journey through the black depths of the ocean and across the cold void of space, to find each other on the Surface that their ancestors once called home.

After "DOOM"...

This book seemed to grab you from the beginning. This book is different from other "end of the world" books- this is more of a what happens after the world has destructed. It is very interesting how the author thought out the different story lines, but yet they will at some point all intersect. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series, it did leave off making you want more. It again, makes you think about things out there that the government may or may not be attempting to do. I really enjoyed that the author had various areas of the world, earth and space all woven into the story and it really makes you think something like this could be possible. There are quite a few interesting story lines to play out yet. I will be looking to pick the second book up as soon as it is out! I did receive a copy of this book for free, in exchange for my honest review.
