Foreverland is Dead by Tony Bertauski (#bookreview)

Foreverland is Dead by Tony Bertauski
ebook, 300 pages
Published January 1st 2013


Synopsis:

Six teenage girls wake with no memories. One of them is in a brick mansion, her blonde hair as shiny as her shoes. The others are in a cabin, their names tagged to the inside of their pants. Their heads, shaved. Slashes mark the cabin wall like someone has been counting.

Hundreds of them. There’s wilderness all around and one dead adult. The girls discover her body rotting somewhere in the trees. As the weeks pass, they band together to survive the cold, wondering where they are and how they got there. And why.

When an old man arrives with a teenage boy, the girls learn of a faraway island called Foreverland where dreams come true and anything is possible. But Foreverland is dead. In order to escape the wilderness, they’ll have to understand where they are.

More importantly, who they are.


Review:

It all began with The Annihilation of what the boys called Foreverland, where they felt like their dreams came true. A matrix flip page turner with some twists that keeps you guessing.

In the sequel, when the girls wake, they are fighting for survival in the dead lands of Foreverland.

The six teenage girls find they all have different traits to work together to what they hope for a way out of this horrible pain. It's a dream world where a fight to the end is to awake in reality - or is it?

I am a fan of Tony's work, having read the first of the trilogy of "Foreverland" and "Claus: Legend of the Fat Man." If you like the Matrix then you will love what Tony does with the concept of being plugged into an alternate world. Recommend Reading!!
