Published Date: April 1, 2014
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
The Story: Love vs Life.Good vs Evil.
War vs Warfare.
Which would you choose?
After a solar flare wipes out most of the world’s inhabitants, it leaves behind nothing but a desolate earth and a desperate population. Existence is no longer a certainty. And with factions now fighting for the power to rule, people start to become reckless with their lives. The world has become a dangerous place.
Amongst the ensuing chaos, Nate and Hermia — two victims of the new world order — are taken against their will to The Compound. Joined by eight other teenagers all chosen for a specific reason, Nate and Hermia are forced to train as assassins to overthrow the current president and make way for a new leader of the free world. Here, they learn to plan, fight, and most importantly... to survive.
Except, despite the casual cruelty of their new existence, both Nate and Hermia — two very strong but very different people — begin to form fragile bonds within the group. But they soon realize their happiness is short lived...because their training is just the beginning.
A war awaits...regardless of how ready or willing they may be.
My Review: This book was amazing! I enjoyed every bit of it. Its a great end of the world kinda book. If you enjoy watching shows like Under the Dome, or movies like The Day after Tomorrow, 2012, etc then you will love Enmity.
My inspiration spawned from my everyday life, as strange as that sounds. I have my characters
As for the idea of Enmity as a whole, I think that came from very far in my subconscious. I have believed for quite some time that the natural disasters that have been going on recently have been crazy. I don’t know if it’s the fact that I am now getting older and watching the news more, but one thing is for certain – the world is on a slowly decreasing clock. There is no way around it. And when the world does end, it is interesting to think about what people would do – given that there are people left – if they are not confined by laws, human rights or morality. I think these two factors were what brought Enmity into existence.
