Rich vs. Poor. Life vs. Death.
When Skye Rogers and her twin brother, Red, move to Manhattan, rumors of a coming global apocalypse are building. But the ultra-wealthy young elites at their prestigious school keep partying like there’s no tomorrow–while the city around them starts to fall apart.
Then Skye and Red are invited to join the Secret Runners, an exclusive group that has access to horrifying truths about the future. Can that insider information save them? Or is this the only time even one-percenters can’t buy their way to safety?
I thought this book was fun read. This book reminded me so much of action adventure movie with a hint of science fiction twist. I really did like the main character in this read. I thought the plot was fun and I also like the fast pace nature of the book. The only downside to this read is a struggled to feel connected to any of the characters and had no real emotional attachment to any of them. I did like the setting a well and found it to be fun read but it did not wow me. If you like action adventure movies this might be a fun read for you.
