A young woman awakes trapped in an enclosed space. She has no idea who she is or how she got there. With only her instincts to guide her, she escapes her own confinement—and finds she’s not alone. She frees the others in the room and leads them into a corridor filled with the remains of a war long past. The farther these survivors travel, the worse are the horrors they confront. And as they slowly come to understand what this prison is, they realize that the worst and strangest possibilities they could have imagined don’t even come close to the truth. @ goodreads

I would like to thank Netgalley and Random House Publishing Group for the opportunity to read the ARC of this book.
I think this book is amazing. It is so creepy. I loved how the kids are in these coffins and some wake up on their own and others being woken up. They all think they are 12 years old and it's their birthday, but in reality they are actually older.
This book is really unique to me. I didn't figure anything out like in other books, you can sort of get a hint of where things are going. This one kept the surprises going for me. I hope in the other books there are a few more things explained.
It's hard for me to put a lot of it into words without giving away any spoilers but I don't want to do that. There are a group of kids trying to figure out what is going on, what happened to them, where they are at, etc. Em is the leader of the group but there are a lot of amazing characters. I love most of them. A few get killed of course which is sad.
They are wandering around this huge place trying to find their way out and find food and water. It seems to go on forever. They are guessing they are underground somewhere, but can't seem to ever get to the top, they just climb and climb.
By some crazy accident they find a botanical room with food and water, but then it gets even more crazier as they meet monsters.
I really enjoyed reading this book and couldn't put it down. I just wanted to know the answers as much as they did! I'm really looking forward to the next book!
I recommend to all science fiction and fantasy readers. 4 Stars
