All it takes is one spark to ignite the flame of liberty.
Six months have passed since Dana and Kenny parted. Forced to live as a wanderer, Dana discovers a crashed drone and learns of the chaos within Dystopia and what President Klens has planned for the resistance. Realizing that she must go back, Dana acquires the help of a seventy-year-old man and an old friend. Upon her return, she finds that rebellion is in the air as the government continues to eliminate dissenters.
Forced to disguise herself, Dana searches for the resistance to tell them of President Klens’ plans. After a few run-ins with the officers and narrow escapes from Colonel Fernau—his obsession with her growing each day—she learns that the people of Dystopia yearn to be free from their oppression. What they need is a leader. Knowing that everyone she cares for will never be safe so long as the government reigns supreme, Dana must decide how far she is willing to go achieve freedom.
Liberty’s Torch is the third book in a series called “Dystopia”. The book takes place mostly in a city named Dystopia, where the people long for freedom. They’re oppressed by a totalitarian regime under leadership of President Klens. Dana and her friend Kenny want to help set the people free, but Dana must decide how far she is willing to go for that freedom.
The book was written really well. The dialogue pulled me in, and the descriptions made me picture the scenes clearly in my mind.
Dana was awesome. She kicked ass when needed, she was intelligent, creative, independent, and strong. Just the kind of heroine I’d always root for. I also liked the idea of the city, Dystopia, since it really suited the genre of the book.
If you’re in the mood for a dystopian read, check out “Liberty’s Torch”.
