This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
“Mit løb tærer på ilten, og smagen af jern i munden bliver stærkere og stærkere. Den lægger sig som en hinde på min tunge. Hvis jeg ikke får fat i mere ilt snart, dør jeg …”
I en dyster fremtid koster hvert åndedrag penge. Kun de rige har råd til kvalitetsilt, som den der fandtes før katastrofen. De fattige må nøjes med dårligere ilt, der langsomt gør dem syge.
Troy og Shay kæmper for at overleve, men da Shay bliver fængslet under falske anklager og ikke har råd til at betale ilten i fængslet, bliver de begge tvunget ud i en livsfarlig alliance …
This book is only available in Danish now, but I’m sure that all the English-speaking countries out there will get the pleasure of reading this someday.
This was an epic read! A book that can clearly compete in the YA genre against the big names in the US! I was captured straight away from the first page.
The universe was interesting! It seem thought-out and actually very plausible in some odd way. My only problem throughout the entire book was the change in lead character. We switched each chapter between the two siblings Troy and Shay. That aside the characters were so lively! They had so much personality. They had a voice and a face and we’ve gotten to know them through the book. I feel like reading it again already! It’s so crazy how good this book ended up being! I had absolutely no expectation and right there it hit me, that a Danish author can be as good as a bestselling author from USA or Great Britain.
The book is really plot driven’ and therefor difficult to avoid spoiling, but I’d recommend this in a heartbeat to anyone whom likes and action filled story that leaves you on the edge of your sofa. Beware though the book will leave you thirsting for the second! An absolute must read!
