Publisher's Summary

A future determined by the spin of a wheel.

Monsters roam the desecrated city. A girl chosen to change the course of the world.

On Crynn Dayholt’s eighteenth birthday, she spins the wheel. The needle lands on the only black square. For 10 years or her death, whichever comes first, she is now the leader of a group of people called the Stalkers. People sent from the safety of Soriah to clear the city outside the wall of Malignants, a breed formed by earth’s desecration.

But Soriah holds a secret. One Crynn wants to expose.

Fawke Newton, the Stalkers’ best fighter is reluctant to go along with Crynn’s daring plan. He has two more years to serve before he can return to Soriah. Would he jeopardize everything for her?

The Stalkers fight not only Malignants as they travel a city still on fire, the air rank, the rain poison. All their lives will be forfeit if Crynn’s plan fails.

Is she up to the task?

Hunger Games with a Twist

Hunger Games fans, it you enjoyed the series. You will enjoy this new series with a twist of its own.

There is a similarity between them with a strong female lead and a strong male counterpart. Both get pulled into the unknown by the government. However. this is where the stores differ. They are not fighting each other but monsters.


Definitely worth listening to or reading.

Full post apocalyptic fantasy

I really quite liked this story. I was gifted an audio in exchange for an honest review tho and I didn’t really like the narration. It just didn’t fit the book. The voice was too old for the lead and voice doesn’t fit the book.

As I said the story however is very intriguing I liked how the main character grew but for a young girl with no training to become the leader of a fighting force within 24 hours is a bit far fetched. If you can get past that then the story is good enough to continue on with. There isn’t a cliffhanger at the end but the story is definitely set to continue.

No real romance
No smut
Full post apocalyptic fantasy.

Left me ready for more.

An excellent story that left me ready for more. The voice added to the character of a young lady as she goes from a teenager to the leader of a group of fighters as a very unusual and surprise 18th birthday present.
