Tranquility, a planet from a distant sun, is peaceful. The gobblers, Tranquility's bird-like natives, are reserved but friendly, allowing the religious group–The Followers of the Seer–to escape persecution on Earth.
Clara, a seventeen-year-old Follower, lives a blissful life inside the Followers' complex. Her peaceful life suffers a sudden turn when her father falls gravely ill during a blackout. The settlers' Communication Center, the Beacon, has its own power source, and Clara must reach it to save her dad's life.
The mongrels, Tranquility's best-kept secret, have launched a rebellion. Rem, a young and proud mongrel, hates everything about humans. When Clara and Rem cross paths, Rem wants to kill her. However, as hell breaks loose, and they must work together to survive, Clara stirs some unexpected feelings within Rem. Can love flourish amongst fire and rubble?

This book was exhilarating. Several times I caught myself re-reading a page more than once just to relive the story. Clara's journey is one that has been written with the reader in mind and keeps you wanting more.
intriguing concept, with very unique ideas explored throughout the plot and novel. i didn't LOVE the romance in it, but it was definitely enjoyable for me. i've never read anything like it before! i'm not really a sci-fi dystopian reader, so this wasn't really for me, but objectively, it was good.
