With the fifth book in her post-apocalyptic Envy Chronicles, Ware turns the focus on Fence, one of the original men inexplicably thrust forward 50 years to an unrecognizable world. As the series has progressed, it has been revealed that the world’s destruction was done deliberately to raise Atlantis once again. Ware has done an outstanding job developing both characters and a world struggling with devastating change. Wonderful reading!
Of the surviving men who awoke 50 years after their world’s destruction, Fence is the only one not showing signs of developing an unusual power. As a result of learning the true nature of the apocalypse, a resistance has been formed against the “Strangers” and their powerful crystals. On his way back to Envy, Fence stops in a small seaside town where his phobia of water is put to the test.
Ana’s connection to water and knowledge of the Atlanteans is something she has guarded, but circumstances may force her to act. Something is not right with the ocean, and Ana fears an attack against Envy is on the way. For Fence, facing his fears maybe the only thing that can save Ana and his friends.
