I think that this book has a very interesting way to show the genre adventure. Not only is it interesting, but it's adventure on a different planet (as I should say). This makes it a thrilling adventure. The only problem is that I do not have a library near me that has the rest of the series. I would definitely recommend this.

Amazing start to a wonderful series

A young woman awakes trapped in an enclosed space. She has no idea who she is or how she got there. With only her instincts to guide her, she escapes her own confinement—and finds she’s not alone. She frees the others in the room and leads them into a corridor filled with the remains of a war long past. The farther these survivors travel, the worse are the horrors they confront. And as they slowly come to understand what this prison is, they realize that the worst and strangest possibilities they could have imagined don’t even come close to the truth.
Let me say, this was so action packed, and I was never bored. You might think wandering through a corridor would be a bit boring, well not in this case. Scott Sigler knows how to keep you alert and ready to turn the page for more. With every chapter, there was a plot twist that was totally unexpected and completely and utterly awesome.
I truly admire Scott Sigler's writing. It's so complex, and it seems like every sentence took time and thought to make it perfect. He knew how to keep you active and ready for everything to come.
I grew to love the characters, and now I'm immensely attached to them. I don't necessarily agree with their decisions, but I sure do like some of their personalities. In this book, there was a lot of annoying characters, on purpose of course, that were a small part of the plot, but none the less, annoying.
This is my first actual YA novel, and it was a great start to this wonderful genre. This is also my actual first dystopian novel, too. Alive was a great start to many genres for me. I'm so glad I read this work of art.
Probably 13+. I was 12 when I read this, and the violence didn't bother me as it would some. It would most likely be a very enjoyable novel for middle graders along with high schoolers, and I think you should pick it up immediately.
