Synopsis: No one knows how the world will end.
On a secret compound in the Washington wilderness, Honey Juniper and her sisters are training to hunt, homestead, and protect their own.
Prepare for every situation.
But when danger strikes from within, putting her sisters at risk, training becomes real life, and only one thing is certain:
Nowhere is safe.
Review: I really liked the book overall. The characters were well developed and intriguing. The writing was really well done and the plot was intriguing.
However, I had a lot of confusion with this book. There are two storylines in this book and I think the author could have gotten away with just doing one or the other. It just seemed too big and there were a lot of variables involved that didn’t and shouldn’t have made sense in the book. It’s hard to explain without spoiling the book, but I think a simple plot goes a lot way.
Verdict: it was a good book overall just a bit confusing.
