I’ve enjoyed reading other books by Sigmund Brouwer, so I decided to give this book a try. The title of this book intrigued me, but I wasn’t satisfied in the end. There was too much violence and too many scenarios left hanging. Maybe there will be a sequel? If so I would read it just to find out what happened. I did appreciate that the author didn't reveal everything early in the book. He spent time developing the characters and gave pertinent information slowly which kept me reading.
It’s frightening to consider that the events described in this book could become a way of life within our own country as is suggested in the front jacket, “Prepare to experience a chilling America of the very near future.” All I can say is pray it is not so.

Back of Book Says:
HER BIRTH WAS SHROUDED IN MYSTERY AND TRAGEDY.
HER DESTINY IS BEYOND COMPREHENSION.
HER PURSUERS LONG TO SEE HER BROKEN.
SHE FIGHTS TO SOAR.
In the rough, shadowy hills of Appalachia, a nation carved from the United States following years of government infighting, Caitlyn and her companions are the prey in a terrifying hunt. They must outwit the relentless bounty hunters, skirt an oppressive, ever-watchful society, and find passage over the walls of Appalachia to renewal the dark secrets behind Caitlyn’s existence – and understand her father’s betrayal.
In this engrossing, lightening-paced story with a post-apocalyptic edge, best-selling author Sigmund Brouwer weaves a heroic, harrowing journey through the path of a treacherous culture a few steps removed from our own.
