Five years after the last drop of clean water disappeared, global societies collapsed and nuclear war shattered all hope of recovery. In a place now only a skeleton of its former self, survivors fight to avoid capture by the government. Forced to work in factories that produce the only drinking water available, those who go in, never come out.
Zach and Vivienne have lived as deserters since they were teenagers. Fighting amongst their own and scrounging for the necessities of life, they’ve learned to rely on each other in every way. Yet when tragedy strikes and the true objectives of the government facility are revealed, their world is ripped apart.
A fate once thought to hold their demise may be the sole answer to their survival. Who can they trust? Who can they believe?
In this life, it pays to be waterproof.
This one had much more hands gripped to the edge of your seat action, which made it hard to put down. It was interesting to see how things have gone downhill with the lack of water.
There was one scene that I felt was out of place in this story - with the drinking. I don't want to give out spoilers, but that part just seemed very odd to me.
Finding out what the government's solution to the water crisis was hard to stomach, and I believe the author handled it well.
I am interested to see what direction the story is going to go in with the next book.
