Review: Edge of Truth by Natasha Hanova

Title: Edge of Truth
Author: Natasha Hanova
Publication: June 6th 2013
Publisher: Sapphire Star Publishing

Source: Author/Publisher
Genre: YA Dystopia

Audience: 14 and up

Synopsis: Citizens who report to work on time, obey the Overlord’s laws, and stay off the Synbot’s radar, live long lives. Long, dull, monotonous lives.

It’s not a bad plan for someone with a hidden, emotion-based ability to trigger earthquakes. In a world pitted against her, sixteen-year-old Rena Moon strives for a life beyond working herself to death at the factory. Seeing an alternative, she risks selling relics from the forbidden lands at Market. It becomes the worst decision she ever made. Someone kidnaps her best friend in exchange for the one thing that would end her oppression.

Driven by loyalty, Rena and seventeen-year-old Nevan Jelani, soulful composer, green thumb extraordinaire, and the secret love of her life, plot to rescue her friend and reclaim her salvage. Still, the thought lingers whether Nevan is a true hero or another thief waiting for his chance at her loot. Events spin wildly, deepening Rena’s suspicions and pushing her limit of control. With more than her chance for freedom at stake, she must decide if she’s willing to kill to protect what’s precious to her. For once, the Overlord isn’t holding all the power, but can Rena live with being reduced to what she’s trying so hard to escape?

My Thoughts: Rena has a secret. If anyone finds out the Syns will take her away never to be seen again. Rena must learn to put her trust in others in order to save her best friend. The real question is who can she trust? I really enjoy this story. Natasha Hanova's take on the ya dystopian genre is refreshing. Rena is such a strong character and her amazing power is interesting.  The potential romance and the suspense keep me turning the pages. This YA read will be loved by all who touch it.
