No one knows how the world will end.
On a secret compound in the Washington wilderness, Honey Juniper and her sisters are training to hunt, homestead, and protect their own.
Train for every situation.
But when danger strikes from within, putting her sisters at risk, training becomes real life, and only one thing is certain:
Nowhere is safe.
This was a pleasant surprise. I am not a fan of thrillers or big on contemporary stories, but the writing in this story gripped me from beginning to end. The atmosphere of the story was well written that I felt like I was with the girls. I loved the characters and how different they were from one another. Honey, Blue, and Birdie Juniper are all sisters that live on a compound in Washington state. They are doomsday preppers which means they are strange compared to others. I never felt like one sister flowed into another. They were all distinctly written with opposite and yet complimentary attitudes.
Demetra has a way with the writing that makes you visually picture each character and the setting. I felt like I was a doomsday prepper with the girls. This book didn't leave me empty. It filled me up and made me excited for more from the author. For someone who doesn't care much for thrillers I was excited to have stepped out and read this beauty. Definitely will be re-reading this in October!!
