Penny lives in a dystopian society where most man kind has been killed by a virus Penny now lives in a small community on an island where verybody has vines black markings that grow on their skin to show that they are special and immune to the plagueWhen an Double Jeopardy emergency arises and Penny s parents give her a vaccine and tell her to run away to find her sister Madeline who lives outside the community because she was born without vines Penny and her friend James leave to search for MadelineCan Penny find Madeline And wasverything that she grew #up believing a lieThis was an okay story but I didn love itPenny was #believing a was an okay story but I didn t love itPenny was okay character and she obviously cared a lot for her family and friends I did think she over reacted at one point but it was understandable really Considering what she was facing I received a copy of Safe from Dawn Husted in Composition and Literature exchange for a reviewI uite liked Safe I had no idea what toxpect To be honest the cover on the Cezanne and Provence edition I received was very simple and left a lot to the imagination The book description also seemed vague and other than the fact that Penny was our main character in a dystopian society it did not lead much to what they book wouldntail I gave the book for stars as I am very into to character development and the characters than into a plot line as you can tell if you have read any of my other reviews I would much rather read a story with well developed characters and the same storyline we have heard again and again then a uniue storyline and bland characters Safe had a nice mix of both the characters could have used a little depth but were not two dimensional Each of the main characters Penny James and Lucan had individual strength and weakness Penny being my favorite as she was not one of the wimpy characters complaining about being on the run that often times happens with the female charactersThe storyline was also very uniue as it had a nice plot twist in the Dark Voices end that I was notxpecting I had the book pegged to go in a different direction While the Contested Reproduction ended left me trying to figure out where it came from and how we got there so uickly I didnjoy it I just was left with the feeling that there should be that another book was comingIn all I really like Safe it was a nice uick read and I do hope that it has a seuel That way I am not left with the feeling of needing something Definitely an Divided by Color (American Politics and Political Economy Series) enjoyable read by Husted I am looking forward to see what book she comes out with next Penelope Evans isighteen years of age and she lives in the Colony with her family and the other survivors This story is set Post apocalypse One day as she finishes up in the lab her ID card begins to flash This begins a disturbance of affairs that lead further and further away from her normality and closer to the truth Penelope and James both wander outside of the Colony in hopes of finding Penelope s sister who was unknown to Penelope previously James Garak who also attends the Academy has a relationship with Penelope No one Creating Country Music expected their relationship to last but it has lasted ove I would have given this book five starsasy if I hadn t been heartbroken by the Blacklands ending Just anxplanation of why I only gave this book 4 starsOkay here we go I received this book for free from the author Dawn Husted in Evolutionary Patterns exchange for an honest review Honestly this deal favored me because this book was so good I loved almostverything about it from the characters to the plot to the conflict to the characters Wait I said characters twice didn t I Yes I did mainly because I loved the characters so muchThe main character was a girl named Penny She was FINALLY a strong female protagonist that I had absolutely no problems with She was strong but she also didn t have a problem with getting help from the boys when she needed it She was incredibly smart and she was also caring and compassionate Her relationship with James was uncomplicated and sincere on her part She was also loyal and brave I have nothing bad to say about Penny I mean she was very serious but this isn t the kind of book where people are cracking jokes and goofing off the whole time No our protagonists are mature Evolution As Entropy except for a little male posturing and they take their situation as it is and they don t try to make it seem like it is no big dealConfession I wasxpectingdreading a love triangle The set up would have been perfect for one and I was just WAITING with a pained xpression for Penny to stray from her boyfriend James I mean there s a girl on a long and dangerous journey with two hot boys both of whom have their own advantages and.

There is no adult supervision Given that situation you can imagine my xtremely pleasant surprise when the author bucked the hype that that scenario leads to a love triangle For readers looking for a love triangle I am afraid they are in the wrong place The romance wasn t a very large part of this story although I am aware that this review makes it seem that way I liked that it was realistic Penny didn t need gooey romance and assurances that she was amazing and wonderful She stood on her own and she knew that her love for James was realAlrighty back #To The Characters James Was #the characters James was s
boyfriend and heand he a guardsoldier I liked him as much as I liked Penny I thought that he was sweet and brave He was a soldier so I was treated to some awesome action seuences Also in their post apocalyptic world veryone is genetically Esteem Enlivened by Desire enhanced with a vaccine of sorts and it gives some peoplextra talents along with lines on their bodies called vines James is Flights of Fancy, Leaps of Faith extremely strong and he can hear very well One of the major twists of the book involved him but I didn t care It just made him interestingThe other main character was Lucan I saved the best for last because he was my favorite He was considered as being lower than Penny and James because he lives on the outskirts of their colony and he has smaller vines that he covers with paint We get to see a different side of the world through him which was awesome He was the lightest of the group and by that I mean that he was the least serious He had great skill with weapons and he was amazing with technology and machines He had depth than I would have originally anticipated I could have read a bookntirely about him and his past if I m being completely honest I also loved how loyal he was to his family and loved ones The nding literally blew me away as did the climax I sat up and turned to my sister and I said I totally didn t see THAT coming Then I hyperventilated for a few seconds I am not going to spoil the wonderfully devastating moment so I won t say any The only little complaint I had about this book is that the world building could have been better I understood xactly as much about the world as the characters did but in the scheme of things that isn t much I would definitely recommend this book and I can t wait for the seuel And there had better be a seuel because I haven t had nearly They Shall Be One Flesh enough of these characters or this world Thearthuakes that destroyed the world are history to Penny something to ponder on while she lives in the colony trying to follow the rules and do her part to keep civilization alive She feels content knowing that her intelligence and her boyfriend James strength have set them up with good careers The vaccine now integrated into their DNA keeps them safe from illnesses that wiped out so many lives Everything changes though when Penny is taken from her home on the pretense of being sick and faces The Heritage of Arabo-Islamic Learning eitherxile or Hereward (Hereward, execution Either option is terrifying but the secrets Penny uncovers may beven frightening Set after the world has been destroyed by Under One Sky earthuakes Penny s life in the colony is uite interesting The society and laws were carefully planned out to give the community a stable but somewhaterie feel This is the life Penny is used to but readers get the impression that verything isn t as is seems arly on Readers wont be let down by the myriad of lies and half truths Penny uncovers as she fights to Groom and Doom escape the colony before she is killed The characters in this book were interesting as well Penny is a likable character form the start She is rather naive but in a believable way and she has other characters like Lucan to contrast her desire to believe the best about people and the situation they are in Lucan was a great character as well Injoyed his playful attitude yet serious resourcefulness He added lightness when it was needed and strength when Penny needed him James Penny s boyfriend was a little harder for me to connect with He s rather serious and not terrible affectionate so I think some readers will have a harder time warming up to him I m interested to see how his character develops and whether or not Penny stays with him The adventure throughout the book was well paced after an initially slow first chapter of introducing readers to Penny s world The action flowed well from scene to scene and Husted provided lulls when the characters needed to breathe and contemplate what was happening The overall idea of the book was very interesting I suspected from the beginning that there would be something of a twist and indeed there was Several Before Penny leaves the colony her father tells her that.
