A great new YA trilogy - year 2024
By: Emmy Laybourne
Genre: YA Dystopian
4 out of 5
I read this book because the second book of the trilogy is a Teens’ Top Ten winner for 2014 (I have to read them in order). If this book is any indication of what is to come, I can’t wait to read Sky of Fire and Savage Drift. I can honestly say I believe the teens do a phenomenal job choosing the top 10 of each year (in fact, better than some other organizations). For me, Monument 14 comes in as a close second, in the YA dystopian genre, to the Unwind trilogy by Neal Shusterman. This book offers a little bit of everything – action, excitement, love, danger and suspense. I recommend it to all fans of dystopian. Recently, I even had a teen who is a huge fan of realistic fiction tell me she was surprised at how much she enjoyed Sky on Fire; so I say everyone should give this trilogy a try.
