The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson seems really interesting. I am intrigued by the idea of a group controlling the world’s resources except for on one island. I have read a few books about surviving in the jungle before and have enjoyed them, so I have high hopes for this one. I can’t wait to read it in the summer!
The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson
Author: Kayla Olson
Publication Date: June 6, 2017
When all hope is gone, how do you survive?
Before the war, Eden’s life was easy—air conditioning, ice cream, long days at the beach. Then the revolution happened, and everything changed.
Now a powerful group called the Wolfpack controls the earth and its resources. Eden has lost everything to them. They killed her family and her friends, destroyed her home, and imprisoned her. But Eden refuses to die by their hands. She knows the coordinates to the only neutral ground left in the world, a place called Sanctuary Island, and she is desperate to escape to its shores.
Eden finally reaches the island and meets others resistant to the Wolves. But their solace is short-lived when one of Eden’s new friends goes missing. Braving the jungle in search of their lost ally, they quickly discover Sanctuary is filled with lethal traps and an enemy they never expected.
This island might be deadlier than the world Eden left behind, but surviving it is the only thing that stands between her and freedom.
Book Quotes: The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson
Survival is fighting, every single day, to climb out of the ruins and into the unknown, come what may.
We are all as strong as we have to be.
Your mind is stronger than your circumstances. Remember that.

I’m also really looking forward to this book. The cover doesn’t really do much for it, but the synopsis sounds very interesting.
Right?! Without knowing the synopsis, I would think that this book might even be a contemporary.
This sounds really interesting! I agree about the cover – it seems to fit more with adult novels than typical YA stuff.
I think so, too! I am usually pretty much swayed by a cover, but the synopsis on this one has me hooked enough.

This sounds so interesting! The cover is a little different, so it will need some getting used to, but adding to the tbr right now! Great pick 😄
This one actually sounds like something that I would love to read, and yet I may not have looked at it twice had I seen it on a bookshelf somewhere! I haven’t read a good dystopian in a while!
