Senator A.C. McFerren has been missing for more than six months. The obvious prime suspect in his disappearance is the homegrown terrorist group known as the Army of Social Justice.
Searching for her kidnapped father leads Brenna McFerren Jefferson to the terrorists’ elusive “Death of Government” headquarters, known as The Doghouse. But nosing around where the federal government won’t investigate puts a target on her family and sets in motion a rebellion she isn’t prepared to lead.
Dreams of liberty cause the Senator’s daughter to disguise herself for undercover recon, recruit a high-ranking defector, and partner with a subversive news agency that combats government propaganda. As Brenna’s strength and family ties are tested, she unites a political party that commands the power to transform the United States.
Brenna McFerren Jefferson is on a mission to find her father. He was kidnapped by a supposed rebel group that defends the interests of the dictator like President. America is not what it used to be. The government has been disbanded save the president, it makes for a socialistic society. Brenna’s dad is against this and that is why he has been targeted. In helping with his release Brenna finds herself in the beginnings of a revolution. She and her family do what they can to make America right again.
In an Oyster Shell – This was an unexpected riveting read.
The Pearls – I don’t usually read dystopian fiction, I find them often leading me into a feeling of helplessness and desolation. I decided to give this book a chance because my interactions with the author where pleasant. I do what I can to help authors so I agreed to read it. I was pleasantly surprised by a dystopian book that left me feeling hopeful and complete. I am glad I read it.
The plot was interesting and unique. There is not a book I have read that I can compare this to. The book follows the Senator’s youngest daughter who unwittingly gets in the middle of all the chaos that is going on. One of my favorite parts of the book was the camaraderie among her family members. They worked as a team to fight against the dictatorship of the new government.
The characters are what made this story. There was strong development. As a reader I was drawn into the emotional ups and downs the characters experienced. I really got sucked into their stories.
The Sand – It took me a little bit to get into the book, but once I was, I couldn’t put it down.
