It has been four years.
Four years since the day the Catchers found her family.
Four years since she escaped capture.
And four years since the day her mother locked her and
Will, a boy she hardly knew, in an attic, ‘for their own protection’.
When Eden wakes, she finds herself on an island, surrounded by hundreds of stolen children. Enrolled in the island school, Jordan Hall, Eden quickly learns that the island is not what it seems.
This book began as another typical dystopian tale but ended as a fictional whirlwind. There is a certain point in the book where I feel like I fell down the rabbit hole. It began having a really unexpected set of new characters with some very interesting plot twists. There is nothing predictable about this novel and I wasn’t sure at all where the book was going to end. A lot of questions were left unanswered but it sets up to a be a great series. However, the moment the story ends up on the Island I couldn’t stop reading. I really enjoyed where the story finishes and definitely look forward to reading the next books in the series.
I really enjoyed Eden as a character and I loved how much she was willing to fight for the greater good. She is not whiney of her situation even though it clearly sucks. She definitely develops throughout the rest of the book and I am sure this will continue throughout the next few books. Of course there is a love triangle but I think I am already on Will’s side. There are so many unanswered questions and these questions even involve Eden’s love interest.
I would recommend this book to any YA fiction lovers and anyone willing to try a new series, I promise you will not be disappointed.
