Sometime in the future, a lonely, windswept island is populated solely by women. Among these women is a group of teenaged Trackers—expert equestrians and archers—whose job is to protect their shores from the enemy. The enemy, they’ve been told, is men. When these girls come upon a partially buried home from the distant past, they are fascinated by the strange objects—high-heeled shoes, teen magazines, make-up—found there. What are they to make of these mysterious things? And what does it mean for their strict society where friendship is forbidden and rules must be obeyed—at all costs?
Review: I didn't really like this book. I think the reason I didn't like it is that the summary made me think that it was going to be about these really cool amazon women. Instead, it was about these teenage girls who were raised to be emotionless warriors, but ended up becoming teenage girls.

And I didn't really understand the main character. What were her motives? Did she redeem herself in the end? Did she need redeeming? I dunno. Lots of unanswered questions and confusing things.

So, just go in knowing that the summary is a little decieving. I think I would have liked this more if I hadn't read the summary.


  1. I really like how you worded your review. Thanks for being honest, I was thinking about reading this review but I'm kind of hesitating now.

  2. Thanks. That the best compliment I can get. :)

    If you do read the book, I hope you like it.

  3. I totally agreed with your review - and didn't feel satisfied at the end. I guess I was hoping for a grand outcome. Thanks! I enjoy reading your reviews!
