Product Description

All I can tell you is what I remember, in the words that I have.

Hayley tends to her bees and follows the rules in the only world she has ever known.

Until she witnesses the impossible: a drip from the ceiling.

A drip? It doesn't make sense.

Yet she hears it, catches it. Tastes it.

Curiosity is a hook.

What starts as a drip leads to a lie, a death, a boy, a beast, and too many awful questions.

WRITE A REVIEW

Young Adult

4

The story was like nothing I've read before. Note quite cult, not quite dystopian and not quite science fiction, but a mixture of the three. I had a lot of questions reeling around in my head while I was reading the story. Some were answered, others weren't. But I must say I was totally sucked into the story shocked at how the community lived and accepted this way of living; but then I suppose they knew no better. The ending left me holding my breath and eagerly awaiting the next book, Rogue, due to be released in 2019.
