Genre: Sci fi

It started with the insects.
The mass die-offs had been a warning unheeded. Before society realized the danger, the Earth had inexorably begun a transformation into a place where life could not survive. A small group found shelter in the Arc, an underground refuge safe from the toxins ravaging the surface.
After centuries of darkness, humanity’s second chance is running out—and Raven Wilder knows it.
Her job fixing the machinery in the Arc makes her aware of how close everything is to breaking down. When the systems fail, the last survivors of the human race will suffocate in the tunnels meant to protect them from the deadly air outside—starting with the most vulnerable. Unfortunately, in an example of history repeating itself, those in charge dismiss her concerns.
When her six-year-old begins showing signs of oxygen deprivation, Raven refuses to go quietly into oblivion.
She will break every rule to keep her daughter alive.
Nothing beats a good old scifi dystopian novel during a global pandemic right? Well I really enjoyed this story! We follow a very strong independent young mum who lives underground after the world has become too dangerous to live on.
I really enjoyed learning about how the world became uninhabitable and it was very realistic way that made a lot of sense to the actual way our world is going.
This book was full of heartwarming, scary and funny moments that made me laugh out loud. I absolutely loved our main character and her daughter. They had a wonderful and heart warming relationship. Tinsley was such a sassy, funny and sarcastic six year old and I absolutely adored her.
This was a really fast paced and action packed story that I truly loved!! For all you sci fi lovers out there you need to check this one out.
