A post-apocalyptic romance thriller. The future is divided by Perimeters: high-security gated communities where life goes on as normal. If you're inside you're lucky. If you're outside, life expectancy takes a nose dive. Riley is fortunate to have been born on the right side of the fence. But her cosseted life of privilege comes crashing down when someone breaks through and murders her sister. She forsakes her own safety to go in search of the killer. Luc decides to go with her otherwise she'll be dead before she's past the security gate. But what awaits her outside is more unbelievable than she ever imagined.

This story kept my attention all the way through and rates 4 stars for that. The one thing that I really didn't like was the awkward arrangement, some chapters Riley, 1st person, present tense, and some chapters Eleanor, past tense and as it turned out, around 17 years prior to the Riley chapters. There was a reason, and I did enjoy the book, but I still think there has to have been a better way of telling this story. Otherwise, competently written, and professionally presented as a paperback. A good story.show more

Thanks to Shalini Boland for giving me this book to reveiew and giveaway. I didn't know about this book until she contacted me, I'm glad she did. I'm a huge fan of post-apocalyptic novels. From the first page I was hooked. It was fast paced which made it a quick read. This is a futuristic dystopian set somewhere in England, which is divided by Perimeters, the Inside and the Outside. Life is good for those who live Inside of the Perimeter. For Riley, life is normal, until someone breaks into the Perimeters and murders Skye, Riley's little sister. In hopes of finding the killer Riley and her seventeen year old neighbor, Luc, leave the protection of the Perimeter. There was suspense, action, romance, unexpected twists and turns. It was realistic. Riley was a strong and brave, you can't help but love her. This is the first book in the series, I'm looking forward to more books in this series. I recommend this book to any dystopian fan.show more
