The Dead Room
by Stephanie Erickson
Date Published: March 11, 2015
322 years after the apocalypse, the world has changed, but her people have not. Secrets, lies, and manipulations endure among a small group of survivors taking refuge on an island in the Northern Pacific.
No one knows what claimed so many lives over three centuries ago, and no one asks, except Ashley Wortham. She can feel the secrets all around her, begging to be uncovered.
But the nine elders who govern the island guard their secrets jealously. They believe the islanders know what they need to, and they hide their secrets behind a ruse of peace. But when Ashley, and her best friend Mason, go down the rabbit hole, no one is prepared for truths they uncover. What will they do when they discover the downfall of humanity lies within their own island, deep inside the dead room?
Wow!! Not sure how I can review this book. Other than to tell you once you start reading there is no way you can stop. The writing was awesome and so vivid it was as if I was watching a movie in my head as I read it.
It's 322 years after the apocalypse and the they live on a remote island that their savior years ago had brought the survivors to escape. There are so many twist and turns. One minute you are reading about Ashley then about face it's all about her best friend Mason. Things happen and all you can think is OMG!! Where is this heading now?
The author did a great job at keeping you intrigued and setting you up for a total about face. I would love to tell you more about the story line but SPOILERS!! THEN when you find out about the dead room about half way through it's ANOTHER jaw dropper. I'm pretty good about "figuring out" the story line but let me just tell you this one I could not figure out. So you just need to get your copy and start enjoying the intrigue and suspense. :)
