The Rule of Three by Eric Walters
Luckily, Adam's neighbor, Herb, is a retired government spy who was stationed in foreign countries. He has seen first hand these types of things, and knows exactly what could happen, and knows how to survive and plan ahead. Adam's mother is the police captain, and with the two of them working together, there is a great chance for survival.
There are no words good enough to describe how amazing this book was! What I really liked was that even though it is dystopian, it seemed a little more realistic, seeing that the communities did not completely fall apart, and there was still some order. I found The Rule of Three easier to believe. Even though there is this huge problem, the community of Eden Mills really came together, which you do not see in a dystopian novel, or really any type of book.
Every second of this book kept me hooked. The plot kept going and going, reaching new conflicts and solutions. In a modern day world with so much technology, it was amazing to see how they survived without technology. It is just like going back in time when there were no computers, and things needed to be done by hand. It really made me think about what would happen if that happened here. The only thing I didn't like was how suddenly it ended, but that just only makes me want to read the next book even more!
I cannot wait to read the next book in this series, Fight for Power!
