Book Review of The Fountain of The Earth by H. L. Le Roy

Terra Vonn is fighting to survive in a destroyed world,
surrounded by unspeakable horror . . .
and things are about to get much worse.

After witnessing the horrific murder of her mother, fifteen-year-old Terra Vonn has a singular focus—exacting revenge on the killers. But before she can complete her plan, savagery intervenes, and she is cast alone into a brutal post-apocalyptic world. As she trails the murderers south—through a land filled with cannibalistic criminals, slave traders, and lunatics—the hunter becomes the hunted. Terra quickly learns that she is not as tough or as brave as she thought she was. Worse, she may be the only one who stands between what little remains of civilization and destruction.

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*

I think books like this one are my favorite type to read. Terra was a great character to follow and I loved seeing her stay strong no matter what was happening to her (which was quite a lot!!). At first I thought this would be a fantasy novel, and while it had that sort of feel to it, it's not. Set in a post-apocalyptic world brings the story even closer to home. 

I read this book in about two sittings! It was so hard to put down. I was able to get drawn into the story very quickly and stayed that way until it was over. I would gladly read another book by H. L. Le Roy. 

This story had some common themes you find in novels, revenge, love, rising hero; but it took these themes you see over and over again and wove them in a way that made it fun to read. I was able to get attached to the characters and want to see things work out for them. 

Definitely add this book to your reading list!!
