Her birth was shrouded in mystery and tragedy.
Her destiny is beyond comprehension.
Her pursuers long to see her broken.
She fights to soar.
In the rough, shadowy hills of Appalachia, a nation carved from the United States following years of government infighting, Caitlyn and her companions are the prey in a terrifying hunt.
They must outwit the relentless bounty hunters, skirt an oppressive, ever-watchful society, and find passage over the walls of Appalachia to reveal the dark secrets behind Caitlyn’s existence–and understand her father’s betrayal.
In this engrossing, lightning-paced story with a post-apocalyptic edge, best-selling author Sigmund Brouwer weaves a heroic, harrowing journey through the path of a treacherous culture only one or two steps removed from our own.
I originally wasn't sure if I'd like this book because I usually don't like the end of the world apocylipse sounding books...(like Left Behind) but I was surprised it wasn't really like that or mega violent.
it's a very good action book. somewhat of a thriller but I never got scared.(I do sometimes scare easily)
I love the main character, Catilyn. she's really smart but she's disfigured. the only real company she's ever had is her Papa but he has secrets and most have to do with her and how she was brought into the world.
her Papa is determined to help her escape to the Outside from the highly "religious" government that rules Appalachia the place where he first smuggled them before the big fence was put up.
before he split up with her to draw the bloodhounds away he told her one main thing.
"don't let them capture you. dead or alive"
