If you've followed me long, you know I mostly read romances. Historical or contemporary, I don't care. I read them.
However, every now and then I break out of my "rut" and grab something else, including speculative. And my friend Erin R Howard has a new dystopian novel out that's amazing.
It's called Beyond the Gates, and is set in two of the last colonies in a dystopian future, as well as the woods around them. I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from this, but after reading a page or two, I was hooked and wanted more.
Erin weaves in beautiful descriptions so that you can picture each and every location the characters enter. There is mystery, intrigue, heart-racing suspense, and even some romance--you know I'm all about that.
If you like books like Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Giver, you're going to love this one. And I can't wait to see what happens in the sequel that releases next year!
What do you think? Do you like dystopian fiction? Does this story intrigue you like it did me?
Death awaits outside of the Gates.
If playing by the rules means it keeps you alive, then seventeen-year-old Renna James should know better. She is, after all, the one who broadcasts these rules to the Outpost. What lies beyond the Gates had always lured her, but her venture outside wasn’t supposed to leave her locked out. Now, Renna’s one chance to survive the next seventy-two hours just ran into the forest she’s forbidden to enter.
