Kenzie holds one truth above all: the company is everything.
As a citizen of Omnistellar Concepts, the most powerful corporation in the solar system, Kenzie has trained her entire life for one goal: to become an elite guard on Sanctuary, Omnistellar’s space prison for superpowered teens too dangerous for Earth. As a junior guard, she’s excited to prove herself to her company—and that means sacrificing anything that won’t propel her forward.
But then a routine drill goes sideways and Kenzie is taken hostage by rioting prisoners.
At first, she’s confident her commanding officer—who also happens to be her mother—will stop at nothing to secure her freedom. Yet it soon becomes clear that her mother is more concerned with sticking to Omnistellar protocol than she is with getting Kenzie out safely.
As Kenzie forms her own plan to escape, she doesn’t realize there’s a more sinister threat looming, something ancient and evil that has clawed its way into Sanctuary from the vacuum of space. And Kenzie might have to team up with her captors to survive—all while beginning to suspect there’s a darker side to the Omnistellar she knows.
I’m glad I picked this book up at ALA this year. My friend loved scifi books so I got it for her. So I read first to see what it was liked. I gonna say I was surprised how much I did love this book. Not a huge scifi reader but this book was so good. Not many readers heard of this book. Hope it gets more attention in the book world. So looking for to book two.
Enough of me rambling. So the story was pretty neat setting. A prison in space, with only about 4 to 6 guards on board. What could possibly gone wrong there?
Kenzie, her mom and crew work round the clock to make sure the prisoners don’t escape. She very brave and loyal to protect her mom and the city from the prisoners. When the prisoners on board escape, she must be more brave and try to survive. What do the prisoners have in store for her and the crew?
Thought the book was action packed. Filled with some twists and turns. There so many hidden secrets on the Sanctuary, so be ready to discover what they are. It a quick read and did enjoy every minute of it.
