Neva lives in the city Homeland, within the Protectosphere, a giant dome that cuts them all off from the rest of the world. Her father is the Minister of Ancient History, and after Neva’s rebellion, forces her to work for him with the government. The “dark party” is supposed to be some underground rebellion, and Neva uses her job to find out more info about history and the world around her. That “history” was a lie, and her father knows the truth.
I read some other review on this book. A few people didn’t like it because they thought this was based too much off of other dystopian novels. I can see their point. I don’t feel like there was much uniqueness to this world building. There have been quite a few book with a dome, force field or line similar to the Protectosphere. The characters weren’t that exciting either. The plot was still interesting, though predictable. Near the end it actually few more interesting and unique, but only a little. It’s a good book. Fast passed, but not as good as dystopian books like Delirium or Awaken.
Art Review: I don’t like this cover. The snowflake is there because Neva means snow, and she has a snowflake necklace from her grandma.
