Review:Captives(The Safe Lands Series) by:Jill Williamson




About the Book:
One choice could destroy them all. When eighteen-year-old Levi returned from Denver City with his latest scavenged finds, he never imagined he'd find his village of Glenrock decimated, loved ones killed by enforcers, and many---including his fiancee, Jem--taken captive. Now alone, Levi is determined to rescue what remains of his people, even if it means entering the Safe Land, a walled city that seems anything but safe. Omar knows he betrayed his brother by sending him away to Denver City, but helping the enforcers was necessary.

Living off the land like nomads and clinging to an outdated religion holds his village back. The Safe Land has protected people since the plague decimated the world generations ago ... and its rulers have promised power and wealth beyond Omar's dreams. Meanwhile, Jem is locked in a cell, awaiting the Safe Landers' plan to protect their future by seizing her own. Can Levi uncover the truth hidden behind the Safe Land's facade before it's too late?

My Review:
 Imagine the year 2088, what would the world we live in be like? And how would Christianity survive it, if at all? Jill takes our minds and imaginations into what she thinks it will be like with her latest novel Captives from The Safe Lands Series. The main character in the book; Levi, is 18 years old and finds the village he lives in destroyed. At the same time there is a plague going on that involves people that have this dreadful disease to have very thin skin that you can literally see through.Yuck!

 This book is packed to the gills with action and intrigue. It is a real page turner. For me and my daughter because we both read it, you just want to keep reading to see what is going to happen next. Levi has taken it upon himself to save whoever is left. I'm sure the fact is that Jem, his lady love is the driving force as to him facing the Enforcers to try and save as many as he can. Omar was trying to protect him by sending him away but now he may be in even more trouble. Tune in to see what happens next. I'm sure it will be a doozy.
