Hello everyone. The blog tour for T.H. Hernandez's The Union begins today. My tour stop involves a review and a giveaway. Keep on reading to enter the goodies at the end of the post.
The Union Synopsis: After global warming and a second civil war devastated the former United States, two different societies rose from the ashes – the Union, a towering high-tech utopia, hugging the perimeter of the continent, and the devastated, untamed midsection known as the Ruins.
Seventeen-year-old Evan Taylor has an easy, privileged life in the Union. What she doesn’t have is any idea what to do with the rest of her life. She only knows she wants to do something meaningful, to make a difference in the lives of others.
When she’s kidnapped and taken into the Ruins as a pawn in a dispute involving her boyfriend, Bryce, her ideal world is turned upside down. What she learns while in the Ruins shakes her faith in everything she’s ever known, from Bryce, to her family, and even the Union itself.
Now Evan must choose whether to stay with Cyrus, the sexy, resourceful survivor who believes she’s in the Ruins for a reason, or return to the only life she’s ever known. But when she stumbles upon a dangerous plot that threatens both worlds, her decision could tear her apart.
Hmmm, I was pretty excited to read this book because of the cover and it seemed like a zombie novel of sorts. Haha.
Anyway, this isn't a zombie novel. It's about a girl who is trying to find who she is and what she wants. On such a journey with her two best mates she gets kidnapped and finds out that what she knew about the Ruins'and the Union isn't the truth. She has to choose what to do with that knowledge and for that you need to read the book. ;)
Soooo, this was like Delirium with all that Wilds and DFA shite. LOL. I would have liked this more if I had liked the characters. I seriously didn't like Evan and how we had Bryce'and then Cyrus. Sudden much?! And then it was all seen-this-all-before-differently-kind and well, not a big fan most of the times.
So this is good if you like the characters for me, they were boring and annoying.
I am sorry this isn't much of a review. But I don't know what to say. This had a lot of potential if it hadn't reminded me of something's I've seen before. It was completely different but not really. But it was.
Just it didn't work for me. It might for you. (;
T.H. Hernandez Bio:
When not visiting the imaginary worlds inside my head, I live in San Diego, California, with one husband, three children, two cats, and one dog. In addition to my day job as a technical writer and editor, I write young adult fiction. I love the intensity of teen emotions and the way they're still figuring out life.
When I'm not writing, you can find me with my nose in a book, hanging out with family and friends, hiking, or knitting. I'm obsessed with Facebook, young adult novels, bad lip reading videos, pumpkin spice lattes, microbrewed beers, and the San Diego Chargers.
