Ignorance is cheap. And then it costs you everything.
Survival takes place in a post apocalyptic future, in a world destroyed by the rising sea levels. The goverment has fallen and now Scylla Corporations is in control.
Ava is looking for her sister who disappeared a year ago. Valerie finds proof of horrifying things done by Scylla and she escapes with the evidence. An unlikely frienship is formed. Is it possible for two girls to stand a chance against an omnipresent corporation?
The writing style is pretty simple, but effective. I had no problems with visualising what I was reading.
I couldn’t connect with any of the characters. I didn’t like or dislike them. I didn’t really care what happened to them. They lacked depth and it made me feel disconnected from the story.
The plot is interesting and action packed. There were a few moments where I was rolling my eyes, because after all they were fighting against a powerful, oppresive corporation and it didn’t really feel like it. But I was having a lot of fun. And the unique setting – a city half-submerged under water – added a lot to the story.
This is a really fun, quick read. It’s definitely not a book that will stay with you for a long while, but it’s fun nonetheless My biggest complain is that we don’t really know why the world looks this way. It was never explained. The setting is so interesting that I feel like the book suffered a lot because of the lack of information.
I recieved a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
