Aria has lived her whole life in the protected dome of Reverie. Her entire world confined to its spaces, she's never thought to dream of what lies beyond its doors. So when her mother goes missing, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland long enough to find her are slim.
This is a difficult book for me to review. There were parts i liked and parts i didn't. This is the first Dystopian book i have read, having not been interested in the genre. I didn't realise this book was about that.
Aria is a young girl that gets pulled into a situation that she thinks will help her mission, but actually it's a horrible experience that gets her exiled from where she lives. Having thought that being in the Pods where she lives is the only safe place, that outside she would not survive, Aria struggles at first to realise that she could survive outside the Pods.
She comes across a Savage, a person from outside the Pods. They are believed to be what the name implies, savage. To Aria, they are thought to be disgusting beings but to the outsider Aria is an outsider, she is a disgustion being. So they both hate the idea of working together but it seems to be the only way to get what they want. Aria wants to get home and to find her mother. Perry, the savage wants to find someone also.
At first they don't talk, loosely getting to know one another by actions. Talking comes and they learn that although some things they know of one anothers kind are true, a lot of it isn't.
Their relationship grows too quickly to me, they are looking at one another with disgust then they can't take their eyes off one another. Aria's character mostly i found to be whining, on and on. I liked the secondary characters more than her.
As i said this is difficult, some parts i thought Yes, i really like this. But other parts just didn't work for me and there was more of them. But, i think the most important thing is that i would like to read the next book so there was potential with this story and there is more to it than i have described it.
There is action and suspence in this story so if you're interested in it, give it a go. A book to me that i didn't really enjoy, to you could be a favourite.
