In Glory's world, different means deviant—and dead.

In a post-apocalyptic world, where the earth is buried by asteroid dust that’s mutated the DNA of some humans, an orphaned sixteen-year-old, Glory, must hide and protect her younger brother. If their Deviant abilities are discovered, they’ll be expunged—kicked out of the dome to be tortured and killed by the Shredders. Glory would give anything to get rid of her unique ability to kill with her emotions, especially when Cal, the boy she’s always liked, becomes a spy for the authorities. But when her brother is discovered, and she learns their father, who was expunged for killing their mother, is still alive, she must escape the domed city that’s been her entire world.

Outside in the ruins, they’re pursued by the authorities and by sadistic, scab-covered Shredders who are addicted to the lethal-to-humans dust now covering the planet. Glory’s quests to transport herself and her brother to safety make up the thrilling and fascinating first volume of The Dust Chronicles.

    " A good sci-fy page turner. This one kept me going. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 1/26/2014

    " I thought this would turn out to be better than it was. I like that the author didn't spell EVERYTHING out for the reader, but there were times that a little more explanation would have been helpful. Also, I was hoping for a heroine who really was taking care of her brother, but half the time I feel that I was following someone who pretended to be a hero and didn't want to see the truth. So, not bad. Would I read the next book? I'd give it a shot. Would I recommend it to others? Probably not. "

    " This reminded me a little of X-Men - along with some controlling dystopian government. Overall, I liked it, but didn't love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia Burgoa | 1/6/2014

    " Yes, another dystopian book. But unlike the others, this one was interesting. I enjoyed all the characters and the construction of the post-apocalyptic atmosphere was well developed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly O'keefe | 1/3/2014

    " I read this book in early draft form - it's so exciting, super emotional. A young girl who can kill with her eyes - trying to keep her secrets, her brother safe, the boy she likes from finding out the truth. It's all so good. The first in a great series!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea Mccrae | 9/13/2013

    " The dystopian future genre is pretty full, but this book was still a good read. I had a little trouble with the main character falling so easily for the two guys, but it does stay in tune with hormonal teenagers! Lol "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elly Takaki | 9/8/2013

    " For lovers of Post-Apocolyptic YA, this book really delivers. A strong, sympathetic heroine, a dark futuristic world and a doomed love, plus teenagers with X-men-like powers that they need to hide if they want to survive. I can't wait for the next one! "
