Breakout by A.M. Rose is a Young Adult SciFi Dystopian story of captivity and an escape plan that will leave you guessing.
That’s the amount of time until Lezah’s execution.
She’ll die never knowing what got her locked up in this godforsaken prison in the first place. Her only chance of survival is to escape. Except the monitoring bracelet that digs into her wrist, the roaming AI, and the implant in her neck make freedom close to impossible.
Her best chance is to team up with the four other inmates who are determined to break out, even if one of them is beyond (gorgeous) annoying—oh, and in for murder. But he has a secret of his own. One that could break Lezah if she finds out, but could also set him free.
Figuring out how to work with him and the rest of this mismatched group of criminals is the only way Lezah will survive to see the outside world again.
But nothing in this prison is as it seems. And no one.”
This was an intense book full of suspense AND twists! If you’re looking for a unique dystopian story that keeps you on the edge of your page, this is it!
We follow the main character who is stuck in a dark prison with zero memory of how or why she got there. With her execution date counting down, she and a few fellow inmates concoct a plan to break free from their torturous bracelets and attempt to find their way through the maze.
This was a super quick read as I read it in only two sittings. The characters drive you through the mystery behind their capture and the prison’s background. Creepy spiders and manipulative robots are around every corner adding a new level of uniqueness to the story.
I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars. The story is entertaining and even has parts where your heart is left racing. The writing style felt a little condensed to me, and I wish there was a bit more world building throughout the story.
I recommend this one if you are fans of dystopian novels with a scifi style AND if you love a good prison break story.
