Overview

The Kind. Book 1, The Recoverist Quartet

Who is the Lamplighter?

Friendless exile.

Champion of the Non Grata.

A mystery to herself.

It is 2472. The British Isles have been transformed by climate change into a desert archipelago. The wealthy and privileged have retreated to high-tech walled cities. Those beyond the walls are known as the Non-Grata. They live a precarious, hand-to-mouth existence, surviving on the “charity” of the cities. In return, these non-people must pay a Quota, a tax paid in human life. Specifically, they give the rich something their money cannot buy: children.

Isobel Twelvetrees has been put outside the walls of her city and left to die in the lethal heat for a crime she cannot remember committing. She was saved by someone or something, but when she wakes, the only companion she has is a dog with odd coloured eyes. When she learns the terrible truth about the plight of the Non Grata, she turns into a new kind of warrior. As she crosses continents with the threadbare armies of the Non Grata, in a deadly race against time to destroy the Quota and right historic wrongs, she starts to uncover the truth about herself and what she left behind.

This book is about 225pgs. Interesting concepts. The characters were okay, could have been a little more in depth. Looking forward to next in series. ****spoiler some of the biggest problems were, what is Clay?? Isolbelle still doesn't remember everything. If the Kind are this advanced why haven't they helped people more ??
