The Glass Arrowby Kristen Simmons
The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.
In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.
Ratings and Reviews from the Librarians
Miranda rated it ★★★★ and said, “A great new stand-alone dystopian for die-hard fans. I loved having a strong heroine who fought back for her people and ultimately sacrificed herself to save the day. The development of the relationship between the MC and her hero was also well done. Overall, a wonderful new book for previous fans of Simmons and other dystopian authors.”
Betsy rated it ★★★.
