Over All For A all for a novel it s not that terrible I ve seen worse a lot worse Nevertheless if ou want to raise prim and proper girls I d probably skip this Honestly on the scale of Oh my G d this is bad for little girls it s not that bad but there has to be something better out there than this Hope this helps I read this because the cover looked interesting and was on sale on but I was unsure so at the library I saw the same book in the kids section of the library and check it out Hmmm is that a good thing or a bad thing 45I feel so safe so warm and the sensation of being held is at once familiar and foreign Like I ve come home to a place I d forgotten cAir rushes past my ears cooling my skin against the sun that s transformed the sky from pale gray to pink and now blue like some kind of miracle Burn called a sunrise After he explained the whole earthsunmoon thing again I think I understandcA girl whose emotions kill isn t meant to have love But in spite of that I smile I m the luckiest girl alive c I loved this book I took every stolen moment that I could to continue reading The story is dystopian but doesn t feel too dark or depressing The characters have great relationships that felt genuine Thier journey was incredible sooo much happens and ou watch them grow and learn to love and trust each other They uestion not only themselves but their world views There is romance that is believableit will leave ou rooting for these characters and feel for them when things seem impossible Send the next installmentI can t wait to find out what happens next My review can also be found on my blog Collections35 starsThree The Thing About Alice years ago Glory s father murdered her mother and paralyzed herounger brother Drake Her father turned out to be a Deviant which are humans with powerful and usually dangerous abilities He was thrown out of the domed city of Haven and perished in the hands of the Shredders psychotic creatures that enjoy torturing and killing humans Since then Glory has been taking care of her brother in secret Because after the death of their parents Glory and Drake have discovered that they are Deviants as well And Deviants aren t welcomed in HavenWith its fast pace and intriguing setting Deviants was a book I found myself easily getting sucked into The story was uniue Un lieu incertain yet familiar at the same time For instance the people in charge of Haven aren t that different from other authority figures found in most post apocalyptic novels They are strict controlling and keeping many secrets from the citizens But I think that s to be expected in a world that was nearly destroyed What stood out for me in this book was the world outside Haven The Deviants and Shredders and how they came to be I can t get into much detail otherwise it would be a spoiler but I wasn t expecting some of the things that happened and were revealed in this book It made some moments pretty shocking and excitingThen there s the main character Glory She s a determined girl who basically had to grow up uickly and become the parent to herounger brother I like that she loves Drake and will do anything and everything to protect him I did get frustrated with her a lot though She had a tendency to not trust people and jump to conclusions uickly It made sense that she would be that way considering the betrayal she felt after what her father did but there were instances where I felt she could have sought out answers first There s also some romance in this book a bit of a love triangle involving Glory and two very different guys I m normally not a fan of love triangles however while I think it s obvious who Glory will end up with it doesn t seem like it s going to be easy I m actually really curious how this one is going to work out Deviants was an adventurous and thrilling start to a new series As I mentioned before it was a fast paced read and very easy to become pulled into the story I recommend it to those who can t get enough of the post apocalyptic and dystopia genre. En her entire worldOutside in the ruins they’re pursued by the authorities and by sadistic scab covered Shredders who are addicted to the lethal to humans dust now covering the planet Glory’s uests to transport herself and her brother to safety make up the thrilling and fascinating first volume of The Dust Chronicles. .

a while premise is simple Earth has undergone an environmental catastrophe so society has walled itself in a Dome to protect themselves from the Dust outside Our protagonist Glory is a Deviant someone who shares DNA with a beast called a Shredder While she might not be agreeable or she might not make the brightest decisions she is fiercely loyal to her family and herself All her decisions seem to come from a self actualized center She is also 16 so maturity might not be her strong point but that is the purpose She s not supposed to be a hero or a chosen one She is different even among her own but her story is not a savior story It s about a girl who wants to protect those she loves and comes to love Which I think might be a breath of fresh air among all these chosen one type story dominating not only the YA scene but also the cinemas A dystopian novel with a little bit of everythingThis story was a delightful read from start to finish Glory is just trying to get by on what little she has and protect her brother while keeping secrets from her friends She has these special powers which at first when we re introduced to them takes a bit of a back seat to the much we re introduced to them takes a bit of a back seat to the much revelation that her father might be alive What follows is a journey that takes the reader on an adventure after the world s has gone to hellThere s something for everyone here and nothing gets mundane or feels forced Glory is a character just about anyone could relate to There were even a couple of unexpected twists Although it led to a bit of a predictable ending despite it being a series there weren t any unresolved cliffhangers which is rare in trilogies I m eager to see Glory s story continue not because anything was left unresolved but because I have a vested interest in seeing her redemption For anyone skeptical it s light on the teenage angst and romance scale DNF 42%This review is going to be a long ranty type review because I hated this bookAt the same time I am glad I read it because it helps me as a writer to know what I don t want to do I went into this book in the dark I hadn t read the blurb just downloaded it to my kindle and started reading I left the book feeling just as confused and uninformedSo let s take a step back and let me tell ou a little about this book Our MC is named Glory and she lives in a dystopian world where everything outside of her city Haven has been destroyed It s all dust The only things that can survive in the dust are creatures called Shredders who may or may not have been human once and rats Lots of rats which are the only source of food besides cucumbers I guess Haven is a dome like city in the middle of the dust controlled by The Mangement Everyone has to work for their living except for The Management The Management hates everything pretty much like Parasites people who don t work and Deviants people who are part Shredder have special powers and want to kill all the Normals If Deviants or Parasites are found they are kicked out of Haven and the people of Haven find pleasure in watching Shredders rip them apart for fun Glory is an orphan who is the sole provider for her brother Drake He is paralyzed from the waist down and because of this is a Parasite since he can t work and everyone is terrified of The Hospital They live in a closet in the Pentz and Drake has never left their apartment Glory has a best friend named Jayma who is the only one that knows about Drake Oh besides Cal the super hot love interest who works for the Jecs and suddenly loves Glory and promises to protect Drake because he and Glory are going to get married Glory and her brother are also Deviants Glory can kill people by using her emotions to suish their organs and Drake s skin turns into armor that hurts other people In comes love interest 2 a muscly guy named Burn who is so large that Glory cannot wrap her arms around his chest He says that Glory and Drakes father is alive and suddenly everyone knows about Drake and Burn has to whisk them both away to save their lives Glory and people from Haven know next to nothing about BTD which I m assuming means Before the Dust Things like garbage personal space nature are completely foreign to the point that they have to ask Burn what they areAre Khaiye Aur Vajan Ghataiye you thoroughly confusedet Yeah me too and I have at least read the bookThe author created the world for the book and it probably makes a ton of.
