That quote was at the top of the email I received about Impervious by Heather Letto. I received a copy, at no cost to me, for review purposes.
Here's the text from the back cover:
I haven't read either Divergent or The Hunger Games. However, I'm glad I read Impervious. I was hooked within the first few pages, and I read more in every free moment. As always I was tempted to peek ahead, but I didn't cave! The adventure and suspense were fun. I held my breath as Fran walked through danger, as she ducked from the holographic security team, and as she barely escaped discovery.
Author Heather Letto says, "My desired goal for IMPERVIOUS was to paint an outrageous, yet allegoric picture of heaven and earth that would grab the attention of believers and non-believers alike." I would say that she achieved that goal. Other themes in Impervious are peer pressure and not fitting in, submission to government authorities, and true friendship.
As I neared the end of the book, I had one burning question ... which wasn't answered. The ending of Impervious cries out for a sequel, and the author promises one. This is the first book in the "Ascension Series," and I am already looking forward to the next installment!
I should mention that the book isn't the slickest production I've ever seen. The cover text is pixelated, and the inside text could have been edited more thoroughly. Usually those things bother me, but in this case I found that the story was absorbing enough that I had no trouble overlooking those details.
