5*Review: EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN by Jessica Redmerski

Title: Everything Under the Sun

Author: Jessica Redmerski

Thais Fenwick was eleven-years-old when civilization fell, devastated by a virus that killed off the majority of the world’s population. For seven years, Thais and her family lived in a community of survivors deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. But when her town is attacked by raiders, she and her blind sister are taken away to the East-Central Territory where she is destined to live the cruel and unjust kind of life her late mother warned her about.

Atticus Hunt is a troubled soldier in Lexington City who has spent the past seven years trying to conform to the vicious nature of men in a post-apocalyptic society. He knows that in order to survive, he must abandon his morals and his conscience and become like those he is surrounded by. But when he meets Thais, morals and conscience win out over conformity, and he risks his rank and his life to help her. They escape the city and set out together on a long and perilous journey to find safety in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Struggling to survive in a world without electricity, food, shelter, and clean water, Atticus and Thais shed their fear of growing too close, and they fall hopelessly in love. But can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?

My take…
“When you die,” I whispered, “you won’t need the soil to hold you, Thais, because I’ll be right there to hold you myself.”

For the past 2 days I have let all things EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN consume me. Even so much as to stalk all things Redmerski in hopes of catching a peek as to when book 2, WINDS OF THE IRON FEATHER,  may be coming out. I am obsessed.

I put a lot of my heart and soul into these amazing characters and their story. I need a the next story as soon as possible. Honestly, I  may have waited had I know it was going to be a series. But I am glad I read it. It was phenomenal and such a stunning story.

She was my charge. She was my last chance at redemption. She was...mine, I decided. My what exactly I didn’t know. My responsibility? My friend? My something else entirely? It didn’t matter what-she was mine.

This book was real, raw, and it ripped and clawed at me at nearly every turn of the page. I enjoyed this story so much, but is it any wonder? Redmerski’s THE EDGE OF NEVER was beyond beautiful and had me in tears with it’s brutal honesty and heart searing romance. Much like this book.

As I said, this story is phenomenal and definitely  a must read. I look forward to what is to come and having my heart torn open numerous times in the next read. 5 Stars!
