Giveaway Review SAVAGE DRIFT (Monument 14) by EMMY LAYBOURNE @EmmyLaybourne @FierceReads

Book Description

 May 6, 2014

In Monument 14: Savage Drift, the stunningly fierce conclusion to the Monument 14 trilogy, author Emmy Laybourne ups the stakes even higher for a group of kids who have continually survived the unthinkable. Can they do so one last time?

It's over. 
Dean, Alex, and the other survivors of the Monument 14 have escaped the disaster zone and made it to the safety of a Canadian refugee camp. Some of the kids have been reunited with their families, and everyone is making tentative plans for the future. And then, Niko learns that his lost love, Josie, has survived!

Or is it? For Josie, separated from the group and presumed dead, life has gone from bad to worse. Trapped in a terrible prison camp with other exposed O's and traumatized by her experiences, she has given up all hope of rescue. Meanwhile, scared by the government's unusual interest in her pregnancy, Astrid--along with her two protectors, Dean and Jake--joins Niko on his desperate quest to be reunited with Josie.

Dean, Alex and the younger kids have been safe at the camp near Vancouver, but they still want to find Josie after Niko discovers that she is still alive.  Astrid is experiencing difficulties in her pregnancy but fears going to the doctor there since she has heard rumors of pregnant girls just disappearing.  To save Astrid from medical experimentation, the boys devise a plan and with the help of the twins' father, the escape the camp and venture back into the states.  

I love that the story alternates between the different points of view of each character and Josie, in her exile as a type O monster, shows that her compassion goes beyond being a prisoner in a sea of monsters.  The chemicals have morphed into a dust cloud that drifts into areas that weren't previously effected.  As Jake, Astrid and Dean travel south to reach safety for the baby, Niko sets off on his own to find Josie.  This part of the story becomes extremely exciting as you wonder if the group will survive the chemicals and circumstances to save Josie.  

Rarely do I get an ending that I wanted but still was a bit surprised at how it ended.  That is exactly what happened to me in this conclusion of the Monument 14 series.  The whole cast of characters are so accessible and it is heartening that these teens try to do what is right. Fans of dystopian stories are going to enjoy this one immensely.  You do need to read the first two books in the series since each builds on the other.  Parents:  There is some violence, alcohol abuse and minor sexual situations.
