All her life Micka has been taught that: “When the great Pandemic hit, it was the water that killed almost ten billion people; the water in rivers, in the ground, in lakes. It was everywhere. The few handfuls of people who survived moved away from the poisoned lowlands, high up in the mountains…”
Micka lives in a small village. Her father is the turbine keeper. It is his responsibility to keep the turbine operational at all times.
Micka has just completed her schooling and as a result of low grades she knows she will never get assigned to be the next turbine keeper. She would rather commit suicide than spend her life working as a compost turner.
But a visit from a stranger on the very night she plans to kill herself changes everything.
This book is exceptionally well written. Although quite a bit of information is provided to the reader very early on, there is always more to learn.
There are also a number of interesting twists and turns in this book that keep the reader hooked in the plot.
The character development is outstanding, and as the reader learns more about Micka, they become increasingly invested in her life.
The world that Micka lives in is as much of a mystery to her as it to the reader, so as she learns more, so does the reader.
This is the first book in a series and I am very interested in reading the rest of the series.
I rate this book as 4 out of 5 stars.⭐⭐⭐⭐
“The Sequencer. The title alone opens doors. These men and women have the power to move entire cities with a single word: Cholera.”
“Sequencer apprenticeships are so rare that hoping to receive one is like jumping out of a window expecting to fly.”
