This week I’ll be recommending my favorite dystopia book.
New World: Rising by Jennifer Wilson
Since witnessing her parents’ murders at the age of eleven, Phoenix’s only purpose in life has been to uphold her mother’s dying words- to be strong and survive. But surviving outside of The Walls- outside of The Sanctuary- is more like a drawn-out death sentence. A cruel and ruthless city, Tartarus is run by the Tribes whose motto is simple, “Join or die.”
Refusing to join and determined to live, Phoenix fights to survive in this savage world. But who can she trust, when no one can be trusted? Not even herself.
New World: Rising is definitely the best dystopia reads that I’ve come across in a long time. It was fast paced and interesting. I loved the writing and the characters were awesome. The world building was pretty great. There was some info dumping in the beginning but that didn’t really matter because the world that Jennifer Wilson created was so interesting. Phoenix is a really cool main character. She’s independent, self aware, and really smart. I read this book in just a couple of sittings because it was so fact paced and I really enjoyed it. If you love dystopian books, please pick this book up because it’s one of the best out there.
