Lyrian Wallace was only ten years old when the Malevolence struck on October 10, 2056. She thought the next decade had numbed her to the grief, the death, the bots, and the daily struggle for survival. She lost her parents when they became Sleepers, but like everyone else, she had pieced together a new family. Lyrian was almost content when the Alliance began taking them . . .
The world always took things away from her. She could only live for today and never dared to hope for any heaven. But when her circumstances change, Lyrian must choose how she might live for both this life and the next.
I love a good dystopian read, and tend to gravitate to Christian reads when possible. That said, admittedly not all books are equal, so I went into this one ‘blind’ knowing next to nothing about it.
As it has at times in the past, that really paid off with WoE Is Us! I got to fully enjoy the mystery and ‘not so distant’ future in this alternate timeline where we are subjected to mind control injections, secret schemes, hacking skills, and a story that really has a little of everything! This is a ‘clean’ read as far as dystopian go, and is great for fans of that Divergent or The Elite Trials feel!
