It’s just another day on the Scrap: lose the last of your credits at the WarDome, dodge the gangs and religious fanatics, discover you can destroy electronics with your mind, stumble upon the deadliest robot ever built…
When Eve finds the ruins of an android boy named Ezekiel in the scrap pile she calls home, her entire world comes crashing down. With her best friend and her robotic sidekick in tow, she and Ezekiel will trek across deserts of irradiated glass, battle cyborg assassins, and scour abandoned megacities to save the ones she loves…and learn the dark secrets of her past.
Okay I totally and utterly adored everything about this. The whole concept is just excellent!
Eve is a great main character, if a little unreliable as she begins to realise! And I love her friendship with Lemon :):) and the way they stand together despite everything.
It’s hard not to talk about all the reveals and the ups and downs of their trip but I love how all the relationships change as they go. I was going to list my favourites, but realised I’d list them all!
Also, I totally need Kaiser in my life. And Cricket.
The ending is both surprising (definitely surprising omg) and not at the same time – I saw some of it coming, and even wondered about one of the big reveals, but what everyone goes to do next really got me. I want book two so I know how it’s fixed!! Ha sorry for being cryptic there. 😉
Just read it. Now.
