The first in a planned series, The Fountain of the Earth is set on the West Coast following a catastrophic solar flare that has destroyed civilization, leaving only a few people struggling to survive. After witnessing the vicious murder of her mother, Terra Vonn (15) has a singular focus—exacting revenge on the killers. But before she can complete her plans, savagery intervenes and she is cast alone into a brutal post-apocalyptic world. As she trails the men south through a land filled with cannibalistic criminals, slave traders, and lunatics, the hunter becomes the hunted. Terra quickly learns that she is neither as tough nor as brave as she thinks she is. Worse, she may be the only one who stands between what little remains of civilization and destruction.
Terra Vonn is fighting to survive in a destroyed world,
Surrounded by unspeakable horror . . .
And things are about to get much worse.
Wow! I was not expecting to be taken on such an amazing journey whenever I started this book. Even though this book is classified as a dystopian, I feel like it was an epic fantasy dystopian. I loved it!
Terra was such an amazing character. The growth she displays throughout this book is incredible. I cannot wait to read more books in this series to follow her journeys. There are plenty of other characters in this book, but they are all so well thought out. I enjoyed reading about them. Terra's parents gave me a case of the feels.
Mr. LeRoy is an incredible writer. This story honestly feels like it takes off from the first page. I was so drawn into this world that I read it in one sitting. I didn't even have time to update my Goodreads, I blew through it so fast. There are a lot of lows and highs in this story, and I felt like they were paced at just the right speed to keep the momentum going.
I'll definitely be on the lookout for more books in this series and by H.L. LeRoy. This book was so enjoyable. Dystopian fans will surely love it!
