Traitor by Alyson Santos
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
***** 5 Cranky Stars *****
It's irony when a reviewer says you should go into this book blind. Just jump in both feet and take the plunge. I promise you won't be disappointed. This book doesn't fit into any particular genre it's a monster all it's own. Sure there is love and drama and mystery but seriously Alyson Santos how do I classify it?
Andie Sorenson is living in her Area with her mother, Struggling to make the rations last and doing their intended jobs they make life their own. They are complacent but they have a roof over their head. A civil war has broken out and they are taken from their home. They are told they will be living a better life within the relative safety of this compound. They are separated and given jobs and living quarters. Andie is given the task of being the assistant of Lance Corporal Kaleb Novelli. It's here a tentative friendship starts.
Lance Corporal Kaleb Novelli has endured torture and tragedy. He is trying to get back to life as normal as possible. Kaleb while keeping his head down and doing his job is a rule breaker. Breaking those rules have serious consequences but it's worth the risk. He knows he's being watched and one day he is assigned an assistant. He doesn't want to drag a civilian into the mess of his life but immediately falls for Andie.
My words can't do this book justice. I can't put down here how complex this book was. It dropped little nuggets of truth till the big boom happened. You find yourself saying you sneaky bastards the whole time. Alyson Santos really hit it out the park with this one. If you life mystery and books that make you guess till the end then this is your book.
