It's a page-turner.

In this world, animals and plants has gone extinct and the people must survive off engineered products from food to medicine. This divides people into those that are willing to serve the corporation, the more service the higher ranking and more benefits. Those unwilling to serve are herded into the Zone and left to scavenge for survival. The story revolves around several people but the book is about Eadie, a nineteen year old waitress that steps up and helps someone in trouble called the Prophet. He tells her that she is supposed to lead a revolution against the corporations. This is the first book in the series and I think it did a great job starting everything off. You have a bleak world and those that choose to serve or fight. We all know that I’m a sucker for dystopian stories. But then the story went a little sideways. There were so many points of views that I got a little lost and spread thin. Although the book is about Eadie I think more time could have been spent on her. Because of being all over the place I had a harder time getting into this story or really caring about many of the characters. Having said that, this is a good story and a good start to the trilogy. I am curious to see where it is going to go from here. I think this is one that dystopian readers would like. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
