Product Description

Product Description

The world ended long before Caroline Mathers was born, but that doesn’t mean life stops for the fourteen-year-old army scout for the People’s Republic of Virginia. Abandoned by her parents, raised by her grandfather, she slinks through the forests surrounding her encampment, monitoring the woods for nomadic bands of criminals known as Republicons, all while keeping a watchful eye on her northern enemies from the Democratic Alliance.

It’s a hard life, but a simple one, at least until the day Caroline hears the sound that everyone dreads: distant drums echoing throughout their quiet valley, pounding to the beat of the war rhythm. With some help from two unlikely allies, Caroline leads her people in a breathtaking retreat, praying they’ll find salvation in their capitol city. Along the way, haunting dreams may reveal a look into her mystifying past.

The first book of the Warchild series is a powerful, coming of age, dystopian thriller full of fast-paced action, tragic choices, and the undeniable strength of the human bond.

I downloaded this book because it was free and didn't really expect it to be much bother when it costs you nothing...but I could not have been more wrong. I was gripped from the first page as the author wove an intricate web around the central character Caroline. I enjoyed it so much I downloaded the next two books which I paid for quite happily.
My advise give this book a go it will not disappoint.

Not the type of book I would normally read but was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the story. Caroline is a young woman who had been chosen to lead her people from danger. Bring on book number 2

4.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to this dystopian series. 21 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the first book in the Warchild series of which the second book is currently being written. Please hurry up with this book Mr Lindsey.

I really enjoy dystopian themed books and this one didn't disappoint in my opinion. The books are aimed at YA and this one crosses over well as an adult read in my opinion.

Caroline is a young fourteen year old when we meet her, who has been raised by her grandfather in an America of the future.

What Caroline doesn't realise is that her life is going to change beyond recognition soon and she has been chosen to lead her people to safety.

A great first book to the series. Well written and conveying the America of the future well, this books moves along at a good pace keeping the reader enthralled.

I gave this an 8/10.
