Summary from Goodreads:
A thrilling, futuristic sci-fi novel set in a unique and thought-provoking world, from author Shannon Duffy.
Desiree Six (because she was born on a Friday) believes in everything the Protectorate stands for. She likes the safety and security of having her entire life planned out—her career, her mate, even the date of her death. She doesn’t even think to question when Darien, her childhood friend and neighbor, is convicted of murdering his parents. They had seemed like such a loving family. But if he was convicted, then he must have done it.
Then Darien shows up in her room late one night. He has escaped from the Terrorscape—a nightmare machine used to punish all Noncompliants—and needs Desiree’s help. What he tells her rocks her world to its core and makes her doubt everything she’s ever been told. With this new information, will Desiree and Darien be able to escape the Protectorate before it’s too late?
I absolutely adore dystopian series and I always find it amazing that each one I’ve read has been so completely different from the others yet just as exciting and leaving me with more questions than I’ve ever thought about before. This book was no different. In fact it exceeded my expectations. With each new dystopian I read I feel like the plots are going to have a familiar feel with at least one of the other stories I’ve read. Shannon Duffy has created a powerful new world in which Darien and Desiree must dive deep into. Everything about their lives has already been planned and there is never a cause to think anything decided upon by the governing body would be incorrect. Until Darien says differently. He is charged with the murder of his parents. Sadly, Desiree accepts throw fact because if they say he was guilty, he was. There has never been a case where she should ever doubt them. But Darien pleads with her to believe him. This throws them both into an adventure of discovery and survival. A thrill ride from page one!
