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

Summary (from Goodreads):

Orion is a Subpar, expected to mine the tunnels of Outpost Five, near the deadly flash curtain. For generations, her people have chased cirium—the only element that can shield humanity from the curtain’s radioactive particles. She and her caving partner Dram work the most treacherous tunnel, fighting past flash bats and tunnel gulls, in hopes of mining enough cirium to earn their way into the protected city.

But when newcomers arrive at Outpost Five, Orion uncovers disturbing revelations that make her question everything she thought she knew about life on both sides of the cirium shield. As conditions at the outpost grow increasingly dangerous, it’s up to Orion to forge a way past the flashfall, beyond all boundaries, beyond the world as she knows it. 

Amazon “Book Depository


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.
