Overview

Welcome to Australia. 

Nobody knows the year. The past has been forgotten. The country is an irradiated wasteland.

To Jade, none of that matters. She escaped a twisted underground society, with her baby sister bundled in her arms. She learned to scavenge, to hide, to survive. One day at a time.

But when her sister goes missing, those days mean nothing.

Bile rises in her throat. Sweat prickles on her skin. Bloody thoughts fill her mind. 

Jade will get her sister back.

No matter what the cost.

A lively and thought provoking read that leaves you glad there's a sequel!

Love the storyline and the characters. Couldn't put it down. Looking forward to next book.

Literally my only negative is that I wanted to know more about whatever catastrophe that created this world. Otherwise, this book is fantastic. Someone else compared it to HG Wells and that is spot on. Also, the very literary, poetic style puts me in mind of some of those great "new weird" writers that are getting shoved into the "Literature" section of bookstores (VanderMeer, Mieville). The chapters from Pearl's POV are my favorites, but I didn't find it hard to love Jade either. This book has quite a bit of darkness; no off-screen horror here; but it fit so nicely into this quirky weird genre-bending area that I love so much, that I could easily accept the sometimes harsh parts. Some of the other reviews mention that it's hard to follow, and I don't agree. Again, emphasizing the very "new weird" feeling I got from the writing, it fits a particular type of story structure that maybe not everyone is familiar with; but it's definitely a full, solid tale with no glaring holes to fall into.
