Author: M. Kircher
Kindle Edition: 362 pages
The world is dying. Thea lives in an earth that is terribly polluted and neglected by the humans. She wishes only to survive and even that becomes hard for her when she decides to rescue a girl named Viviana. Viviana's chest glows and when she touches it her hands start glowing too. She is offered to go on a journey to the last city on earth by a boy named Caden and she agrees to go with him in hopes that she will find a cure for Viviana who is wounded and for the glowing skin. During the journey, she realizes a lot of things like the fact that the glowing will actually save the world.
This book is one of those books that you will think about long after you have finished reading it. I read this quickly which is a testament to how good this book is. I was hooked from the very start. It got me thinking about a future where the world hasn't actually improved. A future where we have actually became worse and have become our own downfall. I have always thought that the future would be a great place with advanced technology where everything is easier and better. After reading this book, I realized that the future may not be as perfect as I always thought it would be. That there was a possibility that we would just forget about the world and would be sent back to the times where people didn't even have electricity. That possibility would be even worse than those times because the world would become extremely polluted. The War Inside shows a future where survival of the fittest is the theme. If you're weak, you die. Don't get me wrong though. This isn't a depressing book at all. It shows that, though the future shown is hopeless and messed up, some good things will stay and that we will always have hope.
My only problem with this book is that I didn't seem to connect with the characters very well. I'm not sure if this is because the story is told in the third person POV. Maybe the book would have been better off told in Thea's POV.
I would like to thank the author for giving me a copy of this book. It was a great read and I will definitely read the sequel. I believe that this book will be perfect for anyone who is looking for an original and enlightening story.
