A world where their abilities could change everything … or lead them both to ruin.
A little strange, but an interesting story. In just a few pages, it’s stirring you up and makes you feel. The emotions you experience are the well-known ones, but they wear different splendid tattered closes.
Picturing the world under a crimson cape, the author takes from you any hope of good, of a future that deserves to be lived. He makes that in a very strong, but delicate, way. The result of the connection (or... better yet of the clash) between the internal and external conflicts gives the atmosphere of the story. Hidden under the beautiful words and symbols, the ugliness of the world is present from the beginning. This mix, well done, fulfills its purpose.
In a world of decay of life and humanity, there is still, in the very end, “a flicker. A spark. The tiniest hint of a flame.” of hope. The question is, will be better or worse?
Grady has found a crack in the wall—a crack to the outside world. But all he knows about life outside the compound comes from books, magazines, and a photograph of a creature that no longer exists. Things change when he meets a girl with raspberry-yellow hair, and a secret that could lead them to a world beyond the walls. A world where their abilities could change everything … or lead them both to ruin.
