Mysterious hoverships operated by clones are targeting adolescents to extract their genes. Owen, is one of the first to disappear. To save him, Derry must strike a deal with the murderous subversives, and risk a daring raid to infiltrate the heart of the extraction operation.

This novel has intriguing imagery and tantalizing cliff hangers which keep the reader engaged in the plot.

The world in which the story occurs is realistic in its descriptions and makes the reader enveloped in the plot and the lives of the characters.

The story line is easy to follow and the writing is well edited.

I enjoyed reading the book and learning about this new world that the author has created.

All in all, this book is a great read and I recommend it to any young adult reader who is interested in this genre and enjoys reading.

I look forward to the next book in the series!

If you enjoy a thrillingly paced, post-apocalyptic story, don't miss this book!

Immurement: The Undergrounders Series is the first book in a young adult, dystopian trilogy.

The protagonist, Derry Connelly, is a resourceful, loyal and brave 16 year old girl, who faces seemingly insurmountable challenges in her attempt to bring hope to the survivors of an environmental disaster that has taken place.

The book takes Derry on a desperate journey to overcome innumerable obstacles which could mean the difference between surviving and not.

The characters are well developed, cliffhangers appear at the end of nearly every chapter, and the author's imagination is stunning.

I recommend this book highly, and am looking forward to the second and third installments of this trilogy.
