Product Description

Product Description

A century has passed since they arrived. Human history has been erased. Children are enslaved on Alien plantations. Some have heard whispers of the existence of a rebel band of humans who roam free in the forests. Most slaves dare not speak of the rebels for fear the mutant guards will grab and make an example of them.

Seventeen-year-old Freya is pulled away in the night not by the mutants, but by her old friend Finn, to join the Saviors, the mythic band of rebel teens. Her bliss fades when she discovers she is the only Savior without a special ability. She is the odd one out, slowly pushing Finn away, defying Damian, the leader of the Saviors, and antagonizing the fierce and beautiful Daphne. In her despair Freya reaches deep within to discover a dark destiny, a truth so heavy it threatens to destroy her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool book for all ages! 29 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had me at Rabbit and Biscuit, two funny, original characters with special abilities that you will love. The book starts by introducing the world as is post-alien-invasion and quickly moves on to define Freya's bond with her childhood friend Finn now that they have both escaped the alien plantation and are members of the Saviors, a band of rebel teens that includes Rabbit and Biscuit. The story builds very nicely to reach a high crescendo that will leave you breathless. And possibly heartbroken. A definite page turner with a brain and a heart. Luckily, there's more books to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 26 Jun 2013

I liked this book because I was constantly surprised at the events in the book and I really grew to like all the characters. I didn't think the description was as good as it could have been because I had to reread some paragraphs to understand what was going on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow Introduction leads to an amazing ending 14 April 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The character introductions were very long and hard to keep track of for a while but I soon found myself having a connection to each and every character. The main character first came off as a useless, selfish complainer but her complexity by the end of the book amazed me completely. Be warned your emotions are hard to control by the end... it had me crying.

5.0 out of 5 stars good book 11 May 2013

The story flowed well. Fast paced and a very interesting unique story. I pre-read books for my granddaughter before giving them to her and even I found this book to be very good even though its target is young folk. Has a little romance but not too much for pre teens. All in all good read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book! 26 Mar 2013
By Loves All Things Books - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Excellent book! The Plantation is unique, I haven't read anything like it. The writing was remarkable, the characters were entertaining, and the storyline was phenomenal. It kept me turning the pages until I read the very last line.

This story reminds me Lost in the fact that the Saviors are hiding out in abandoned buildings, hoping that they won't be discovered by the Sliman and aliens.

The Plantations are terrible places for humans to be. The children that are held there are slaves to the aliens. When their purpose has been fulfilled bad things happen, the aliens see to it that they have no memories of that life.

Freya was rescued from the Plantation by her friend Finn. They join a group of teens called the Saviors. All they want is to be free from the aliens.

I recommend this to anyone looking for a fresh new read!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun read 5 Mar 2013
By Amanda Richards - Published on
A group of 12 variously talented kids escape from "Plantations". These plantations are run by aliens who have taken over Earth and started farming and harvesting humans. Each child is engineered and grown to have special "talents" which make them stronger, faster, and smarter, than normal humans. But why are the aliens doing this? And how will this group, known as the saviors, save humanity?

I liked this book after the 80% mark. It was a very slow start but the ending made up for it, it grabbed you and made you want to read the next one in the series. If I could point out one more small thing that bugged me (and it may just be me, I am noticing that sometimes the strangest things about books irk me...) was the sentence length. All the sentences were about the same length and it kind of made it read like a telegraph or a series of twitter messages.

But overall, it was an interesting story and I would definitely pick up the next in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read 28 Dec 2012
By Mary Libero - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was a great surprise, I loved the plot and the characters. The writing is exceptional, dealing with the eternal themes of loneliness and trying to fit in in a very original way. The main character - Freya - is one of the most vivid, intelligent portrayals of a young woman ever. She's strong and weak at the same time and she grows into maturity slowly but unmistakably. I love her interactions with Finn and Damian. There's a lot of action in the book as well as a lot of introspection. The mutant army -Sliman - are terrifying. If you like intelligence and emotional power in your young adult dystopias, this is definitely a book you should read.
