Publisher's Summary

First place winner for Best Science Fiction Novel in the 2014 Royal Palm Literary Awards!

Dying of thirst is the new reality.

Five years after the last drop of clean water disappeared, global societies collapsed, and nuclear war shattered all hope of recovery. In a place now only a skeleton of its former self, survivors fight to avoid capture by the government. Forced to work in factories that produce the only drinking water available, those who go in never come out. 

Zach and Vivienne have lived as deserters since they were teenagers. Fighting amongst their own and scrounging for the necessities of life, they’ve learned to rely on each other in every way. Yet, when tragedy strikes and the true objectives of the government facility are revealed, their world is ripped apart. 

A fate once thought to hold their demise may be the sole answer to their survival. Who can they trust? Who can they believe? In this life, it pays to be waterproof.

Please note: may contain language, sex, and violence not suitable for a younger audience.

pulled me right in

I really enjoyed this story, and I didn't listen/read to the first book. I was still able to follow along with what was going on. I think the 1st book would of added to this story, but I'm not sorry I listened to this first. I am super excited to read/listen to the third when it comes out.

I enjoyed the love story that developed between the characters as well as the drama that unfolds when they end up with the government.

the narrator did a great job.

Probably biased - need a pre and re-listen

The story to my mind is a "soso", but I have to say I didn't hear book 1 - so I have certainly missed some of the formative aspects of the cast, I'm sure. I felt it took a long time to get to the premise which I would have expectet to be built (and possibly recapped at the beginning of the boook) and then have a feeling of having gotten somewhere over the course of book 2.
On a very upside of that - the book doesnt have the classical recaps (ironic given what I just wrote) and it doesnt give heavyhanded references to the previous part so it doesnt play the listener dumb, which I think is great. And it adds to the book's ability to stand alone.

I had an impression it would be more of a litrpg with survival aspects, but the urgency of survival never really hit the mark.

The performance was deffinetly not my cup of tea. The voice sounded like an autotuned and automated reader, which took away from a lot of the parts that COULD have been sexy/thrilling/exciting.... Weren't.

I will get around to listening to the first book and then revisit this one....it was ok enough to have me want to know a bit more.

Absolutely brilliant

I do love a good post - apocalyptic novel and this one is both brilliantly written and narrated. This continued the story and they are now all in the factory/city. That brought its own unique story line - the ending was brilliant. Cannot wait for part 3.

I was given a free copy by the author but this is no way influenced my review.
