Citizens who report to work on time, obey the Overlord’s laws, and stay off the Synbot’s radar, live long lives. Long, dull, monotonous lives.
It’s not a bad plan for someone with a hidden, emotion-based ability to trigger earthquakes. In a world pitted against her, sixteen-year-old Rena Moon strives for a life beyond working herself to death at the factory. Seeing an alternative, she risks selling relics from the forbidden lands at Market. It becomes the worst decision she ever made. Someone kidnaps her best friend in exchange for the one thing that would end her oppression.
Driven by loyalty, Rena and seventeen-year-old Nevan Jelani, soulful composer, green thumb extraordinaire, and the secret love of her life, plot to rescue her friend and reclaim her salvage. Still, the thought lingers whether Nevan is a true hero or another thief waiting for his chance at her loot. Events spin wildly, deepening Rena’s suspicions and pushing her limit of control. With more than her chance for freedom at stake, she must decide if she’s willing to kill to protect what’s precious to her. For once, the Overlord isn’t holding all the power, but can Rena live with being reduced to what she’s trying so hard to escape?
Here we meet our main character Rena who lives in a world where everyone must obey the Overlord's laws. She must be as everyone else and people who are different aren't welcoming. People's lives became dull and monotonous as they live within the borders that are set for them. Rena is sick and tired of that life and she decides to do anything possible to get away from her factory job, gets rich and gains better life. So she starts wondering. Starts searching out of the borders for the things that are left and yet undiscovered as you can sell them for really good price. Only the problems start when her best friend is taken because of her. She must find a way to help her and surprisingly Nevan joins her. They have to pass many dangerous places on their quest.
Edge of Truth was a really thrilling and interesting read. It's action-packed and you can't wait to see what happens next. But, yes there is but, I had some issues with this series. They are mostly because many things are left unanswered here and I had to ask myself why plenty of times. Starting with their hair-styles. They wear dreadlocks and I had no idea why. Also what happened to the world as we know it. I mean I guess something are left in secret for the sequel but I needed some little details to understand this book better.
All in all I look forward reading the second book in this series.
Rating: 4 stars.
