(#1 In Sci-Fi!)        

For ninety-nine years, humanity has cowered behind force fields from a deadly foe that nearly caused the extermination of the human race. 
The Ruins. 
These cracked-skinned, black-eyed monsters had previously been humans who had fallen to the Macula infection, which results in the complete transformation of the genetic code. During this time, brain function slowly diminishes, until they have only one instinct.
Nobody dares to leave the force fields. Nobody but the Observers, whose main function is to go out into Ruin territory and study the creatures. This branch of the government, of course, is only available to the suicidal.

Or, as sixteen-year-old Kyler Kendrick puts it, the inherently curious.

Although, being thrown in a squad with nine other people isn't as easy as it sounds. For one, personalities of shy, or awkward, or sly, or depressed, or overly-excited, or feisty, or brooding people don't always mesh smoothly. Two, everyone has a secret. Whether it be a tragic past or a hopeless future or an innate ability, everyone conceals something.

Even Kyler. And his secret may be the most dangerous of them all.

I'll be honest I don't comment frequently but thought that you should know that I was truly intrigued by this first chapter and can only surmise that the rest of the series will continue to be this good you are an extremely gifted author

sci-fi is not normally my scene, but this story too damn interesting to stop reading..
I probably won't be able to vote that much because I'm too intrested in reading the whole book and just keep on going from page to page but I'll try my best 😀😇🤓
