They tell me the country looked different back then.
They talk of open borders and flowing rivers.
They say the world was green.
But drought swept across the globe and the United States of the past disappeared under a burning sky.
Enora Byrnes lives in the aftermath, a barren world where water has become the global currency. In a life dominated by duty to family and community, Enora is offered a role within an entity that controls everything from water credits to borders. But it becomes clear that not all is as it seems. From the wasted confines of her small town to the bowels of a hidden city, Enora will uncover buried secrets that hide an unthinkable reality.
As truth reveals the brutal face of what she has become, she must ask herself: how far will she go to retain her humanity?
Excerpt Review :
The 2018 Indie best Young Adult fiction award winner After The Green Withered promises us a great dystopian apocalyptic fiction.
This is my first time doing first chapter review and I’m really psyched for this .
Kristina goes in detail about the apocalypse that has already been happened in this book and the detailing and pacing is so interesting. She makes it a bit scary and not boring.
The first chapter gives us really great insights of the world building and our protagonist Enora.
The world building sounds unique despite the cliches like birth control measures and food rationing.
I am really looking forward to read this book and give a detailed review once i get my vacation.
