The Fearless by Emma Pass
Author Emma Pass has created a world where the worst possible outcome to a potential “World War” has happened. The governments of various world leaders created a drug to minimize the effects of PTSD in our soldiers and it worked but it also diminished their capacity to feel other feelings as well. They are essentially mindless killing machines. This drug is sold to our enemies and everyone now has some form of their very own “Fearless” soldier. War erupts and mass invasions occur, thus ending life as we know it.
Years after our world has ended, small isolated groups of people that were able to survive the initial wave of invasion continue to live as best as they can. Cass is a young woman living in one of these groups on an isolated island. Her baby brother was taken by the fearless on the same day a stowaway named Myo is discovered. She is faced with the choice to follow the rules of survival and write her brother off as dead or rescue the only family she has left. She chooses to rescue him and leave her semi-safe island behind and venture out into the world. Accompanied by Myo, she begins her dangerous search for her brother.
This was a well written and exciting book. You follow Cass and Myo on their journey to rescue her brother and go through many obstacles along the way. Their relationship develops into something more than friendship and you fall in love with their story.
I look forward to a sequel!
