Who’s afraid of the big bad Wolf? Not Scarlet.

Crystal City has a solution to its overpopulation problem. They have enacted “the purge.” No one quite understands what that means, but most residents don’t care—it doesn’t affect them.

Unfortunately, the purge hits too close to home for Scarlet Roma. When members of the Wolf gang terrorize her and the ones she loves with the backing of the government’s authority, she knows she must do something about it.

Will the wolves come for her before she can escape the city, or will she bring the fight to their house instead?

~My Thoughts~

Last Escape is another fantastic YA Dystopian Fairy Tale by Creeden. This author packs so much into a story without ever overwhelming the reader. The story begins by showing us who the main character is and quickly evolves into an action-packed thrill ride that refuses to be put down. The characters are relatable and the pacing is perfect. The world that Scarlet lives in is one that will blow the reader’s mind. I highly recommend Last Escape for any reader who loves a wonderful dystopian/fantasy mashup. I will say that the story leaves me wanting more so I hope to meet Scarlet Roma and her friend, Dean, again soon!

Pauline Creeden is an easy one-click author for me.
