    I kept seeing this book on the recommended part of the Kindle App and decided to give it a go I was going to have a hiatus from reading apocalyptic type novels for a while, but the premise sucked me in Okay, I liked the cover as well.Alex Meyer, a paratrooper, stationed at FT Irwin, goes to sleep in his barracks and awakens in a place he is unfamiliar with At first, he thinks he may be in a prison or holding cell, but that can t be right, as the room he is in doesn t look anything like a cell It s kinda futuristic looking and has a bathroom so he probably isn t being detained After having a quick peruse around the place he finds a case underneath his bed, that is DNA coded to him and only him Although, he doesn t know that at the time Inside the case is an assortment of weapons and ammo cases, etcetera He eventually works out how to get outside and is amazed to see other people and cabins around, just like his A young woman Yael approaches him and gives him grief, as she believes he may be the reason for her being there as he s wearing army gear and carrying a weapon This is where he meets Max a Law Professor and he gives Alex all the information he currently knows about their situation, which isn t much except they all went to sleep in their own beds and ended up in this place Wherever this place is Max tells him about a barrier surrounding the complex, that prevents anyone from leaving or going past a certain distance in any direction They re all trapped...

    The synopsis made me think this was going to be the adult version of The Maze Runner but the only real similarity was people waking up not knowing how they got there The plot was a bit far fetched, which I can overlook easily, but combine that with the insta love situation plus a lot of military,weapons and fighting and I can t rate ...

    I picked this book up on impulse Someone in my Goodreads timeline marked it to read I like post apocalyptic and or dystopian reads sorry, Amber and the plotline sounded interesting.A diverse group of people find themselves in a strange camp with guns, strange technology, and no connection to one another although we do find out later there was It that was all it was, I would probably not...

    Stunted writing, overly descriptive of non essential tangential information is distracting I read to chapter 8 hoping it would get going with the story and less description without plot movement can t keep going Not worth it I can describe the characters clothing and clothing option...

    The idea is interestung although far fetched and cliche, but the execution is very poor It s written as a middle grade kind of YA romance than anything All in all I was disappointed in this one.

    This was a poorly written novel, a huge disappointment The premise was intriguing but was poorly executed.

    Third person narratives are an easy read and I am a fast reader, but seriously, the book was so compelling right from the start that it felt like I lost time Seed is what I call boy fiction, BUT it is excellent fiction, so good that me, a lover of all things girly, really, really liked it and would recommend it to anyone regardless of whether they are girly girls like me or have in common with the male lead character I suppose the reason I found this book so likeable is because the main character is a compelling character He is not so HERO that you just assume things will work out for him, yet not at all a schmuck antihero My granny used to tell me that a good book should make you laugh, cry, think about things in a different way, and bang the book against the wall in frustration over character shenanigans, and this book hit ...

    I thought this concept was pretty interesting Reminded me of Wool the full omnibus I would be vaguely interested to read about this world they ve created here I think this works great as a jumping off point for story or for alternate story lines i.e this was going on while you were reading that previous story I will ...

    I had no pre conceptions going into this one and didn t know much about it I like post apocalyptic stories and didn t know this was going in that direction I saw a review that called it far fetched but I really don t think the cause of the destruction was far fetched at all The way it was handled and the set up of th...
