The existence of 15-year-old Alice Davenport is Paradigm Industries’ biggest secret.
Decades ago, after fierce storms ravaged the earth, Alice was one of the first to help establish Paradigm Industries’ new world order: in which no one can leave the Barricades, and every trace of the past was destroyed. The whole Community believes she died an Industry hero.
But Alice refused to live under Paradigm’s cruel laws.
Alice was punished.
And Alice is alive.
Sentenced to permanent cryonic sleep in the Catacombs, Alice has been frozen for years… until now. With the Industry wanting her dead, Alice is on the run – helped by Carter Warren, Industry loyalist turned secret rebel. But as they make their escape, they uncover a shocking secret.

Thank you to Bookouture for my copy of this book via netgalley and for letting me take part in this tour. I loved the first two books in this series and I was so eager to get into this one after the way the 2nd book ended.
We return just where we finished at the end of the 2nd book and we are right in the middle of the action. You get this feeling that things are about to kick off and everything its about to change.
Carter and Alice are still our main characters and I really enjoyed following them both. I liked seeing their different perspectives. I also liked seeing the perspectives of the Township and the Village. It was very interesting to see how the different communities adapted and survived after the storms.
Elizabet really is an interesting character. Her skewed view on the world and the people around her really fascinated me. Ceri really brought her to life for me.
The majority of the world building was done in the first book but it was great to see more of the outside of the barricades in this book. To see what happened to places after the Storms and to see what after more than 80 years had still survived.
I am actually a little sad that this series is over. I really immersed myself in this world and I will miss it and its characters. I am, however, really looking forward to seeing what Ceri brings us next.
