WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T GET OLD.
In fiery young Deirdre Callaghan's home of Skellig City, no one has dreamt their own dream in over a thousand years. Dreams are produced by the Dream Makers and sold by the Ministry, the tyrannical rulers of the city. In Skellig City, years of life are awarded equally and the ruined are cast away beneath the city on their 35th birthday.
Unbeknownst to the Ministry, Deirdre's handsome friend Flynn Brennan is afflicted with a terrible disease - a disease that accelerates the aging process. Knowing his fate if the Ministry should ever discover his illness, Flynn has lived his whole life hiding from their watchful eyes. When Flynn's secret is finally discovered, Deirdre is determined to free him from the Ministry's grasp. But to save him, she will have to reveal herself to a shadowy enemy...one that none of them even knew existed.
I love books that are different and original. The Dream Protocol: Descent is one of those. I really can’t compare it to other books and I like that.
This book is about Deirdre and Flynn. Their hatred for The Ministry and the world they believed that was being hidden from them. It’s not a romance book but it’s about the love of family and friends and what you would do to protect them from being descended.
I found myself extremely frustrated with Dee at times. A lot of times. I know teenagers are rebellious heck I was one but she didn’t think before reacting. It’s like she could care less of the consequences regardless if that meant getting herself or her friends and family in trouble.
We didn’t read much of Flynn’s story other than that something was wrong with him and he was best friends with Dee. I liked his character and I wished we could’ve had more background info on him. Maybe in the next book we will.
Adara Flynn Quick really did an excellent job of making us feel like we were living in Dee’s world and Flynn’s. The details were just amazing. The writing was excellent and I was very impressed. The cover is absolutely gorgeous and that was what made me want to read this book in the first place!
If you love post-apocalyptic books that are different than those you’ve read and doesn’t contain zombies then The Dream Protocol:Descent is for you!
