summary ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Rory Power

characters Wilder Girls 109 Rory Power ´ 9 characters HingBut when Byatt goes missing Hetty will do anything to find her even if it means breaking uarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence And when she does Hetty learns that there's to their story to their life at Raxter than she could have ever thought tr. Well here s something I never thought I d never say this book should have been at least another 100 pages longerThe premise for this book is really exciting and the cover is fabulous but the execution is sorely lacking The story picks up some year after a remote school for girls is ravaged with a devastating virus and subseuently uarantined Notice how I said picks up Very little backstory is ever given about the onset of the virus How it all started and progressed leading up to the uarantine and beyond For me the most compelling part of the story was omittedThis book features three best friends that have seemingly settled into this horrific existence as much as could be expected even going so far as finding some appreciation for their newly found strengths and Independence Again some history of the events that lead the girls to this point including a in depth storyline as to what brought them to the island in the first place would have been nice When one of the girls goes missing after a flare up in her illness the other two set on a course to find out what happened to her only to discover that all is not as it seems Shocker The reader is never enlightened as to what the cause of or how this illness started Why did it only occur on this island Why does it manifest in such different ways from person to person Basically nothing is ever revealed from the history to the present making it hard to connect with this story and it s charactersThe abrupt ending is perplexing Will there be a seuel More importantly can we get a preuel It seems the author forgot to include the entire backstory from this book I would be interested in reading a second book because the ending leads you to believe that the next chapter could be a thrilling one Additionally the author has a real flair for atmospheric world building and what I did learn of the characters was fascinatingAnd who knows maybe I ll get that history after all25 Stars rounded up I received an ARC from Random House in exchange for an honest review
