Fenn is Sightless.
And in her world means that she is mysteriously protected from the Scourge.
So when her mother Aloe become a member of the Three, is now Fenn's responsibility to be the water carrier to her community the Groundlings and to the Lofties.
What are exactly the Scourge?
The sighted say the creatures bodies are open in patches, weeping pus and thick, dark blood. Their deformed faces are masks of horror. They roam the forests, reeking of festering flesh, consuming anything living.
By then once a year, the Exchange happened, if a baby was born in the ground fair-haired he must go to live with a Loftie family and vice-versa.
So you can imagine, that besides the truce this two have, the tension was palpable.
Now the Scourge are closing in, and so Fenn must bring water for her community that hides in the caves and to the Lofties. For that she will have the help of a keeper, Peree, a Loftie that will be there for her protection.
Although Fenn should mistrust him, she finds herself liking his companion. He is kind, protective and thoughtful.
He is there for her, every step of the way, he is there to comfort her, to entertain her with his stories.
Now Fenn and Peree must rely in each other, fighting for their survival and ultimately uncovered many truths about them all.
This book was just amazing!
A rich and complex new world, that makes us question, how humanity got to that point? What caused it all?
And gosh, the twist and turns of this story, just knocked me out!! And did I mentioned how action packed it is?
Not an insta-love, it was great to see how everything unfold...and how real it all felt. *sigh
Oh and they're both kick-ass heroes! They both stand for ehat they believe and what's right.
