Years after the world was nearly destroyed, humanity is still trying to rebuild. A lot of technology was forgot or can't be fixed or replaced, though there are those who try!! Holly is a salvager of sorts, but her current job is to find street kid who’s about to jump off a cliff. She usually doesn't do jobs like this, but money is money. When she finds the boy, for some reason, she finds herself agreeing to look after him for a year. Seems easy, but things aren't as they seem and life for Holly is about to get a lot harder.
I'm a fan of this authors other work, and eagerly dived into this. It's definitely different than her other series and took a little while to actually get into. I know the first books in a series you always have quite a bit of world building to do, but with this one, I just found it a little bogged down with unnecessary descriptions. Plus we never really got a full understanding of what happened to the world. I think I needed to understand what exactly happened, in order for me to truly enjoy the world now.
I really liked Holly. She was kick ass and well able to handle herself. She is smart, sassy and kind. I loved seeing what she was capable of but she was also willing to ask for help when she needed. The other characters were well written and I liked them all.
This was a good start to the series and I'm interested and intrigued enough to continue with the rest of the books. Once I got into it, it was decently paced and held my attention till the end.
Emma Wilder was only ok. I actually don't think she's a good fit for Holly. She didn't have the inflections to really make this work. I felt like she read the story but didn't perform. For a character like Holly, you need someone who will capture her perfectly and Emma Wilder just didn't do it. I wanted a little more.... ooomph from her, a little more excitement etc.
I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.
