Captives Review

Captives The Safe Lands   In a dystopian future, eighteen-year-old Levi returns from Denver City with his latest scavenged treasures and finds his village of Glenrock decimated, loved ones killed, and many–including his fiancĂ©e, Jemma–taken captive. Now alone, Levi is determined to rescue what remains of his people, even if it means entering the Safe Lands, a walled city that seems anything but safe.

My Review

Captives is a very captivating book.  From the very first page it intrigued me!  The characters are so real and they have relatable flaws...even Omar.  I was able to have sympathy on every single character!  There are some wonderful messages in this book about deception, forgiveness, and beauty!  Jill did a fabulous job writing this!

At some points, I was uncomfortable.  The people of the Safe Lands did drugs and some other bad things.  I would advise this book for older teens and adults.

Overall, this was a very good book and I would recommend it to anyone over about 15 or so!
