Series: Book 1, The Rosie Black Chronicles
Summary: Five hundred years into the future, the world is a different place. The Melt has sunk most of the coastal cities and Newperth is divided into the haves, the “Centrals”; the have-nots, the “Bankers”; and the fringe dwellers, the “Ferals”.
Rosie Black is a Banker. When Rosie finds an unusual box, she has no idea of the grave consequences of her discovery. A mysterious organisation wants it – and will kill to get it.
Forced to rely on two strangers, Rosie is on the run. But who can she trust? Pip, the too attractive Feral, or the secretive man he calls boss?
From Earth to Mars, Rosie must learn the secrets of the box – before it’s too late. (Taken from Goodreads)
Review: Being a huge fan of all things dystopian I absolutely adored Genesis. It is such a great read.
I loved Rosie and she is such a kick-butt chick. I could definitely read more books about her, which I look forward to doing so.
I loved Pip, he was a very cool guy and I just loved him too.
I think the idea that global warming has already happened in Genesis was a really interesting twist and just the entire idea about water being scarce seems kinda scary and completely new.
I think it was also nice to read a book set in Australia as so many of the books I read these days are set in the Northern Hemisphere.
I definitely recommend Genesis for those of you who are fans of the dystopian genre. It’s well worth a read.
