A unique post-apocalyptic world

I really liked the descriptive narrative of this novel and the pace at which it progressed. In a world where there is no petroleum and librarians are detectives you are introduced to Pratima, a young student and researcher in her early 20’s and William, a teen who has spent the majority of his life in libraries. They may be young but their knowledge, determination, and life experiences are exactly what is needed to stop an evil plan in their chaotic world. Along with a great cast of characters these two are set on a dangerous path to stop an attack that would end many lives. In this future setting knowledge gained from books is precious and should not be abused, unfortunately there are those who will. Thankfully there are those who will fight for what is right. I highly enjoyed this story, the sweeping landscape and the characters and look forward to more of Pratima’s adventures in this well-crafted realm.
