Redwine’s debut novel, and think it will find a wide audience. If that is how civilization ends I hope I die in the first wave because what a lame way to go!
The story is actually pretty vague. Including going up against the brutal Commander, who is the leader of their walled in town of Baalboden.
Redwine exploded onto the young adult writing scene with a story unlike any other. I’d lock them in a dungeon and throw away the key. The closeness of them had a smile on my face, especially the moments between Rachel and Oliver.

Her dad taught her how to take care of herself but she could recognize when she needed help and she accepted it.

I read in another review that this was a futuristic realm where man had dug down so deep that they had awoken a beast, The Defiancs One, who terrorized the people in this story, but this book could just as easily have been set in a fantasy realm or on another planet for all I know!
