Immurementby Norma Hinkens
Immurement is the first book in The Undergrounders Series, a sci-fi dystopian thriller trilogy with a gritty heroine and twists you won’t see coming!
The action takes place in 2069 and the main character is Derry a 16 year old girl that lives in a post-apocalyptic world with her brother and her dog.
There are "things" called Sweepers that extract (or better captured) people and taken them to never return, and because of that the survivors are living beneat earth, in tunnels where the flying machines from the Sweepers could not enter.
Everything changes for Derry when her brother goes missing and she takes matter in her own hands to go seek him. a search party is built that includes her, her older friend (a older man named Big Ed that everybody think is a fugitive) the guy she fancies and a friend of her brother that Derry could not tolerat nor trust named Mason.
All goes to hell when during the search her boyfriend is also captured by the sweepers and now Derry must rescued both the boys. During this book we discover so many secrets about this world, the enemy became friend and Derry learns to trust other people and herself.
The writting is easy to follow and i like the main idea behind this book, but i have to tell you guys that there are some parts that i do not like at all. In the end there is no reason for Derry to go to the Craniopolis and all the lifes that are lost there are in vain. The doubt between the two boys at the end.... oh my god really? after all she went throug to rescue her boyfriend?
I have some curiosity about the next book and have some questions without clues.... but i do not think i will be reading the next one so soon.
My Rating: 3/5*
