Project ELE by Rebecca Gober
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I'd say it's more like 3.5 stars. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This book started out very dry for me. I skimmed through a lot of the first few chapters. It started picking up about the 40% mark. That half of the book was amazing and very intriguing. The book ended on a HUGE cliffhanger. The romantic aspect was very sweet! The powers and how they came about were pretty original, and the climax towards the end was epic. All-in-all a decent quick read!
Plot: Dystopian setting, a virus runs rampant. The government is heating up the earth in order to kill off the virus. In order to survive, people must live in government controlled shelters, but you must pass a physical in order to be admitted. Willow and her father are forced to separate from her mother and brother because he didn't pass the physical.
Shortly after entering the facility, Willow gets put to work and makes new friends. She starts developing a relationship with her boss Alec. There's not much to do at the facility, so Willow, Alec and her other friends go exploring and discover a mystical cave. It becomes more mystical when the group develops strange new powers. But if they are discovered, they wont make it out of the facility alive.
