Friday 56: Aurum by H.J. Lawson

This is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice



These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.

Synopsis:
          "Trinity has spent her life living the in the jungle, away from the Sanction world which the Emperor and the Untouchables created. Everything she knew about the outside was from murals on the pyramid walls, where she and the other members of the Enlighten tribe live. 
     One day while out hunting, the dark presence of Death appears by her side, and she becomes the hunted…
     Dax has returned home to the Purenet Sanction, as his family holds his friends and loved ones hostage. Alone and helpless, he slips back into his old life… until true friends show him the way out.
     Skylier’s fate is sealed. Time is her only hope… to get away from her fear worse than death."

This is the sequel to Purenet (Review)



56% on my eReader:
     "I can feel Trinity's hands roaming down to my waist, toward my gun, and I move to stop her. Then I reconsider. "Get them!" I yell to her. I just hope we don't run out of ammo.
     Shot after shot rings out in the night, followed by screams of pain."

  2. I'm curious if this happens in the past or the future. I enjoy a good dystopian and the characters are intriguing.

  4. I'm curious as to why the narrator can't just do the shooting themselves! Sounds like an interesting read.

    1. It's told in dual perspective. It's really good so far. And one thing that I really like about this series, is there is no love triangle, and romance itself is hardly part of the story.

    1. There is a little gore and zero intimate stuff. It's all action and that sort of thing.
