The Survival of Emily Hunte by Julie Hopkins

One girl's account of the war of technology

When the attacks in Chicago start, her older sister and trained soldier, Amber smuggles her into a survivalist compound in the wilderness of Alaska—one of the few safe places left in the world. To survive in this cutthroat community, Emily has to take on the identity of the one person she swore she’d never become.

Note: The Survival of Emily Hunte contains some harsh language.

An interesting start to an interesting premise; looking forward to more.

By Eren Reverie, author of Et Alia

Feb 14, 2015: Okay, there are only a handful of entries so far, so I’ll update this once there’s more.

What is posted is enough to give the reader a pretty good grasp of the setting: a near-future at the tail end of a technological apocalypse.

The premise is interesting enough to have hooked my attention, and the writing is pretty good. I didn’t notice any grammatical or spelling errors, which is a plus. The entries felt a little short – but then, I’m a rather voracious reader and probably not the best judge of that.

I rated it at three stars ~for now.~ I fully expect that to go up once there’s enough posts for more of the plot and additional characters to develop.

If you like to binge read someone’s archives, this is probably something you’d want to give some time to develop. If, on the other hand, you’d like to get into a story at the beginning; to let anticipation, speculation, and solid writing fuel your interest, then I would suggest this as a good pick. I know I’ll be keeping an eye on it.
