Author: Jenny Moyer
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Publication Date: November 15, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads): Orion does not intend to spend the rest of her life down Tunnel 9. It is her duty as a subpar to mine—as it has been for all subpars, ever since the radioactive flash curtain fell, nearly destroying all life. Orion, the most gifted of the miners, knows she can earn her ticket out and into the protected city of Alara with 400 grams of cirium, the only element that prevents radiation sickness.

But everything is not as it seems. When Orion learns a truth that challenges all she’s ever known, she embarks on a quest for something far more precious than cirium: freedom. Along with Dram, her caving partner and the boy she might love, Orion sets out on a mission of rebellion and survival.

This book really intrigues me! I am especially interested in the mining elements. This is another dystopian, and I’m excited to get back into the genre.

    I have to say, this is a new one for me. I haven’t heard of it before, but it’s going straight on my TBR shelf. I haven’t read a dystopian book for a while, and I have to say, I really am in a mood to read a good dystopian. Hopefully this one will be it when it eventually comes out.
