Decayed Horizons - book review
Decayed Horizon was written by Elizabeth Sharp. This post was organized by N K Author Services. I was provided with a copy in exchange for my honest book review. All opinions are my own.
About the book:
I awoke in a destroyed subway station fifty years in the future. Less than a quarter of Earth's population has survived and those who remain are changed. No one is afraid to unleash their new abilities on each other. They all want something from me.
I can never go back home.
Drake came to my rescue. He made me happy to stay, but I still don't know if I can trust him.
Now we're on the move. We have to keep going, though I have no way of knowing if there is hope beyond the decay or only more destruction.
Some books run through my mind as though they were movies as I'm reading them. Decayed Horizons is definitely one of those. I can visualize the characters and sets. I can see the elaborate costumes and makeup. It was such a visual book for me. A real world lives in the pages of this book.
I can't imagine being Ally. I think if I woke up in a deserted NYC I would find myself huddled in a corner in a state of shock. Of course... that wouldn't make an amazing story would it? But, Ally has the strength to get herself out of the destroyed city. Then every group of people she meets want to use her. How do you trust anyone... when you don't know what's going on?
I'm left with a lot of questions at the end of Decayed Horizon. I can't ask any of them here without ruining the story though. I guess I just want more answers about what actually happened to the world. We may never know that, I suppose. Something happened and the world just is what it is. My other questions come from NEEDING the next book. I mean....what happens next with Drake and Ally? What about Jason? Jamilla and Lylie? Do the marauders actually do what they say they will? Is there peace between the groups of people? War? Does Ally's plan work. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?!?!?!?
