Alive by Scott Sigler
Geared Towards: Teen & YA
Published By: DelRay
Publication Date: July 2015
Description from Amazon:
For fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Red Rising
comes a gripping sci-fi adventure in which a group of teenagers wake up
in a mysterious corridor with no knowledge of who they are or how they
got trapped. Their only hope lies with an indomitable young woman who
must lead them not only to answers but to survival.
I initially found the book's storyline to be a little monotonous, but I must say it did get better. When more details began to come out about half way or so through the story the whole thing took on a different feel for me. It was a genuinely bizarre storyline, and my interest is now piqued in regards to where the author will go next with it. As this is the first installment in the Generations Trilogy, I think it is safe to say I will give the next book a go when it comes out.
Thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for the review opportunity.
