In this dystopian post-apocalyptic novel, there are two kinds of people, alphas, and omegas. Cass hides her status well, because unlike her fellow omegas, she has no deformity. She is an outcast even among her own kind and when Zach locks her in a holding cell she has plenty of time to dream, which is what seers do best. When she begins to dream of the island she knows that she has to keep it a secret, especially from the woman who probes her mind like a drill.
This is an epic science fiction cross fantasy adventure. The dystopian world is unique and disturbing, and the characters are well crafted. You get the sense of bleakness from the surroundings but Cass’s optimism keeps the story flowing warmly. There is just enough detail to visualize the world but not too much that you get bogged down with it. I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the next book in the series.
