Citizens who report to work on time, obey the Overlord’s laws, and stay off the Synbot’s radar, live long lives. Long, dull, monotonous lives.
It’s not a bad plan for someone with a hidden, emotion-based ability to trigger earthquakes. In a world pitted against her, sixteen-year-old Rena Moon strives for a life beyond working herself to death at the factory. Seeing an alternative, she risks selling relics from the forbidden lands at Market. It becomes the worst decision she ever made. Someone kidnaps her best friend in exchange for the one thing that would end her oppression.
Driven by loyalty, Rena and seventeen-year-old Nevan Jelani, soulful composer, green thumb extraordinaire, and the secret love of her life, plot to rescue her friend and reclaim her salvage. Still, the thought lingers whether Nevan is a true hero or another thief waiting for his chance at her loot. Events spin wildly, deepening Rena’s suspicions and pushing her limit of control. With more than her chance for freedom at stake, she must decide if she’s willing to kill to protect what’s precious to her. For once, the Overlord isn’t holding all the power, but can Rena live with being reduced to what she’s trying so hard to escape?

Thrown in a world that has rules up the ying and Synbots out to get you doing wrong, Natasha has created a world that kind of reminds me of that movie Demolition Man. I loved that movie!!!
At first, I was not sure if I had all of the information because you are already involved in something you are trying to figure out. But as the events unfold, you are given the knowledge of the two societies in this book.
After trying to peddle some relics at a market for cash, the book takes quite a turn and you are on another great adventure within the story. Out of all the characters, I found that I love Blaze. She is a rule follower but also a devoted friend. She knows her limits and her trust in her friend Rena is put to the test.
When finishing this book, I still had questions that needed answers for and I am hoping that they will be addressed in the sequel. What a great start into the Dystopian World!
