The year is 2087, and the federal government has implemented a new sentence for criminal convictions—banishment to a remote island.
When Lydia Brone is wrongly convicted of murder, she is sentenced to three years on Kormace Island. She must forget all she’s ever heard about life in prison and develop the necessary skills to survive in the wild and defend herself against savage enemies—other felons who will fight for their rightful place within the island's hierarchy system by means of violence and sheer brutality.
Lydia is an everyday teenage girl who has been convicted of murder and sentenced to three years on a remote penal Island. When she is dropped off she quickly realizes this is no ordinary prison facility. In fact there is no facility – only other felons trying to survive the wilderness and each other.
Lydia is quickly surrounded by a band of wild looking women who escort her to a camp where they will try to discover what skill she can offer the clan. She isn’t an athlete and doesn’t have any particularly handy talents like doctoring or wilderness survival. Initially she is given a menial task to learn. She is struggling to fit in and to make friends when the camp comes under attack from an enemy clan. When several warriors are injured in the battle, Lydia is assigned a more crucial task which she will have to learn as she goes.
This is the introduction to the series leaving much to develop. I enjoyed the different plot full of action, danger and irony. Lydia is not a particularly talented heroine so it will be interesting to see how the story develops. I recommend this to readers who enjoy dystopian and survival stories.
I received this novella from the author for an honest review.
