Calico Descending by Keri Lake
Genre: Dystopian Romance
Release Date: October 29, 2019
Sequel to Juniper Unraveling.
I was fourteen when I was sold to the men in black uniforms. Too young to understand I served a purpose beyond that of the other girls they’d taken.
For the greater good.
Now, after four years in Calico, I’ve seen more death and suffering than during my days of surviving out in the Deadlands against the threat of Ragers and famine. I didn’t think this world could get any bleaker. Didn’t think it could take any more from me than it already had.
Not until I finally learned my purpose.
That same day, I walked the dark halls in the bowels of this hell, where the suffering is in silence, and ghosts of the dead whisper through the walls. A place where nightmares are real.
A place where I met my Champion—the most revered Alpha in S-Block—locked away in his dark cell.
For the greater good.
He’s their weapon, their only line of defense against the mistakes of the past: the mutations that could wipe out all of what’s left of us.
Me, I’m his whipping girl. His reward for good behavior.
And his punishment for acts of defiance.
I can’t believe I voluntarily put my one and only heart through that. I need answers and I need compensation for the emotional turmoil that I might have totally signed up for but still can’t believe happened to me.
The main events of this book are set around the same time as book 1 but we don’t get to meet those characters. These are completely new characters that I fell in love with almost instantly because Keri Lake.
I genuinely thought that the pain and suffering part of this story was behind us but Keri was literally in her house laughing at my naivety. The amount of pain, agony and loss were on these pages made my heart hurt for the characters. And best bit, it’s not over yet.
Keri Lake has such an absolute talent of giving you hope in the direst of situations but then also instantly taking it away? I love and adore how poetic and thought provoking this series has been and we are just only getting to the real deal.
I CANNOT wait to see what happens next. My body is ready. My heart is terrified.
