Since the age of three, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Winters has been trained to be Daughter of the People in the underwater utopia known as Elysium. Selected from hundreds of children for her ideal genes all her life she’s thought that everything was perfect; her world. Her people. The Law.
But when Gavin Hunter, a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into their secluded little world, she’s forced to come to a startling realization: everything she knows is a lie. Her memories have been altered. Her mind and body aren’t under her own control. And the person she knows as Mother is a monster.
Together with Gavin she plans her escape, only to learn that her own mind is a ticking time bomb... and Mother has one last secret that will destroy them all. - Summary from Goodreads

Okay. Yeah. You had me at underwater utopia. Can't wait!

What are you waiting on?


  1. The first half of the summary is very cliched but I was hooked on "Her Memories have been altered." I wonder what happened.

    1. Yeah it's like it's written from a standard template, but I think it's got a good premise!

  2. I want to read this one too! Love the cover especially the model's dress. Thanks for sharing!

  3. The cover of this would probably be enough to draw me in, so PRETTY!

    "The person she knows as Mother is a monster" Whatttt?! Okay, I love the sound of this, it sounds like something perfect for me!

    Thanks for sharing, I hope you get to read this soon.(:
