Otherborn by Anna Silver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Cover: 5 of 5
London and her teenage friends live in a reprocessed world.
Confined within Capital City’s concrete walls, London has done the impossible and the illegal. She’s created something New- a song. But her mentor, club owner Pauly, is not impressed. Since the historic Energy Crisis forced everyone behind walls generations ago, the Tycoons have ensured there is truly nothing new allowed under the sun. Pauly warns London to keep her song to herself, if she knows what’s good for her.
What he doesn’t know is that London is keeping an even bigger secret: she dreams. And she’s not alone. London’s band-mates and friends have begun dreaming as well, seeing themselves in “night pictures” as beings from another world. As Otherborn, they must piece together the story of their astral avatars, the Others, in order to save their world from a dreamless, hopeless future.
When Pauly is murdered and an Otherborn goes missing, London realizes someone is hunting them down. Escaping along the Outroads, they brave the deserted Houselands with only their dreams to guide them. Can they find their friend before the assassin finds them? Will being Otherborn save their lives, or destroy them?
*****I received a free copy in exchange of my honest review.
Otherborn series is my newest favorite dystopian series!yay!
Honestly I did have a hard time reading this book at first but after a couple of chapter, I can say that I was hooked!
This is definitely a dystopian with a twist..even though it does have the familiar elements we all find in other dystopian series, it manages to be unique and exciting. The story keeps on getting better as the story progresses, surprise after surprise...you won't really know what will happens next.
London, the main character in the story is a streetwise girl that appears to be strong outside but vulnerable inside, it's not hard to connect with her..with her wanting to appear strong in front of her friends, giving them hope and guidance..I find myself liking her and hating Tori when she appears to be a competition.. back-off girl! lol. Rye, London's I'm-not-so-sure-boyfriend is a very likable guy because he seems to be really protective of London, I love how he protects London in anyway he can and hopefully..we'll see more of London and Rye's moments in the next book.
Otherborn is an awesome dystopian book and I'm so ready to read the next one. I'm so excited about the "Others", there is so much we need to know about them and how and when they will help London and friends.
I want to give this 5 awesome stars but since they way it ended kills me..I'm only giving it 4.9.
