There Once Were Stars
Peace. Love. Order. Dome. That’s the motto that the Order has given the residents of Dome 1618 to live by. Natalia Greyes is a resident of Dome 1618, a covered city protected from the deadly radiation that has poisoned the world outside for four generations. Nat never questioned the Order, until one day she sees a stranger on the outside of her dome. Now Nat wants answers. What else might her government be hiding from the good and loyal people of Dome 1618?
My Review of There Once Were Stars
When I read the synopsis of There Once Were Stars, I knew it would be a book I’d love to read. I wasn’t wrong! I love books that have some sort of apocalyptic theme. In this one, an infection of some sort (think The Walking Dead) spread throughout the world, and the only solution was to construct domes to house the uninfected and immune. Nuclear bombs were then set off to make sure all of the infected were killed.
Nat has just turned 18. Her parents were killed years ago on an expedition outside of the dome, so she lives with her grandparents. Now that she is 18, she has to begin her contribution to the dome. She’s not sure what that will be until she is assigned to the science division her parents were a part of. Nat’s assignment proves to be much more than she imagined as her questions about her parents and outside of the dome are answered.
I really loved how quickly the plot moves in this book. It is a book that will keep you guessing, and you’ll want to keep reading. The characters in this book are very well developed, and they make the story really enjoyable to read. This is a book I recommend to all of you dystopian fans. I really hope that this story continues on because I feel like there could be a lot more to this story!
I received this book free for an honest review which I’ve given.
