[Synopsis] (Taken from goodreads)
The truth doesn’t always set you free.
Orphaned as a child, Joanna has lived her entire life in the care of the New Terra Alliance. On the verge of turning eighteen, she eagerly awaits her release into what remains of society.
It was a beautiful lie.
Joanna was never meant to leave. She is part of the August Harvest, slated to die before the month’s end. With a rogue soldier’s promise to find her a way out, Joanna dares to hope. But as Harvest Day approaches, she realizes that to truly defeat the NTA, she must extinguish the source of its corruption–the Commander General himself. But Joanna has no idea the Commander lies in wait, hatching a deadly plot of his own.
(DISCLAIMER: This review is based on my opinion only and may contain coarse language)
Joanna has been an orphan since she was a child, the New Terra Alliance has taken care of her and with her 18th birthday coming soon, she is excited to go out to what’s left of society and to complete Phrase Three.
I actually did like the introduction and early world building of the book. I stopped reading at chapter 6 as I felt that as the story progressed on, the world building was a little lacking and the writing style was confusing for me. I really wanted to love this book since it was a dystopian but I have to give this book a pass, but might try it again in the future.
