Overview

In the hot and harsh farming region of Agricola, 16 year old Cyra prepares to be tested to discover what duty she'll hold for life. All school leavers across the regions are in the same position, and few expect anything more than to follow in their parents' footsteps and stay in the region they live in.

For Cyra, there was never a choice. With her father dead and brother and sister assigned elsewhere, she's desperate to stay close to her sick mother so she can take care of her.

On the day of the Duty Call, however, Cyra's world turns upside down in one stroke. She's to be assigned to Eden, the largest and most powerful sea city and central hub of control. Only the most important live there, and no one from Cyra's town has ever been assigned there in her lifetime.

So, she sets off on a journey away from everything she knows, without knowing what her duty will be. Soon, she discovers that she, along with a select group of school leavers from across the regions, has a special power; a gift that will pit her as a secret protector of the nation.

Only, it's not a gift, it's really a curse, and before long Cyra will learn that her once small world is filled with a great deal more corruption and injustice than she ever thought possible.

For a free book I think it was good. There was not a lot of action.I feel like it copied some books like hunger games and the testing.

Good read. Minor spelling and grammar mistakes. Predictable but kept me reading. Overall, enjoyable read

Although it shared many themes with recent bestsellers such as Hunger Games and Divergent, there were enough differences to keep the story fresh. It drew me in and I found myself caring about the characters and wanting to know how things would turn out. A bit predictable in places, and could have done with more editing as there were times that mistakes drew me out of the moment, but overall a good story.

I was drawn in. I tend to like books with more adjectives. However, the story kept my full attention. I found myself involved with the characters. I'm looking forward to the second book. The proof reading was sub par. I found many grammatical errors and misspelled words.

Excellent book! Yes, does read similar to Hunger Games. However, this writer gives me a picture of a destroyed, war-torn United States. This makes the characters a little more real to me. The writer also moves quickly through the escape/chase scenes. I didn’t feel mired down by explanations that weren’t pertinent to the story. I don’t need to know the color of a building we see one time in a story. That is what my imagination is for. Over all, the story is a little slow to start. Once Cyra’s real adventure begins, the story is swift and fun to follow. It was a bit predictable at times. Still, the book kept my attention.
