Book Reviews: "...will keep you on the edge of your seat..." - School Library Journal, "Teens Review a Western, Sci-Fi, and a “Maze Runner” Rea - Sam G., age 14, Kitsap (WA) Regional Library YA Book Group. "The pacing of the novel accelerates and morphs into a mystery as one deception after another is unveiled. . . .die-hard vampire fans will find much to be excited about. . . .A definite addition for young vampire fans thirsting for fresh meat." ~ School Library Journal - Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL. Like everyone else living in Haven, seventeen-year-old Sophie Harkness is an Immune--a carrier of the genetic mutation that protects her from the virus Hitler unleashed upon the world more than half a century ago. A virus that wiped out most of humanity and turned two-hundred million people into vamps. But after her best friend is brutally murdered and several attempts are made on her own life, Sophie becomes determined to find answers to what seems to be a conspiracy running generations deep. And when she questions the peace treaty that keeps her small community protected, Sophie begins to discover terrible truths about herself and what it means to be human in a world ruled by darkness. Lindsay Brambles' debut young adult novel is a story of an alternate universe: Hitler won the war, our modern technologies never evolved, and the Nazis' terrifying reign still continues. This fast-paced novel will appeal to readers who guzzle up genre mashups and are looking for a fresh hybrid to sweep them away.
