Orion and Dram, miners who bring in the most of the element needed by the city are in constant danger. Danger from the environment, and the government. Of course there is a conspiracy going on here--it is a dystopian, after all. But I liked this one. It's just different enough and scary enough (cave-ins, scary bugs that eat you, venomous bats, and radiation) to keep me interested. I think the danger element, and the non-stop pacing, will draw quite a few of my students' interest. It's a duology, but this one ends well enough that if you didn't want to read the next one you would be satisfied. ( )

Orion and Dram live on an apocalyptic Earth where the Sun has burned through the atmosphere. Humans have been split between two "races", normals living in the "protected city", and SubPars, that have a natural resistance to the Sun's radiation, enslaved to mine cirium to power tech and the shield that keeps the human race from burning. . Orion has a natural ability to find the ore and is close to collecting her 400 grams for her freedom. After corruption is shown to them, Orion and a group of fellow cavers try to fight the system but is punished by being sent to the flash curtain. There she is forced to collect flash dust. Orion escapes from the clutches of the government and finds a group of resisters that included Dram's father. This novel is continued in FlashTide.

Many mixed feelings about this book. The premise is so original and has a great mix between science fiction and relationships. But the characters are terribly bland. I had no real connection to Orion and Dram. I felt closer to Orion's father and wanted to follow the Conjurers or learn more about the creatures that live in the cave that came from the flash. Orion was so boring and useless, how can such a cool world leave so much to be desired?
Then the story was jumbled. Orion was sent to three different tunnels and fields, escapes the government twice, and lives through things literally everyone else dies from. I only recommend it because teens would be interested in the story, but would probably also see what I mean. It would be good for those into action and sci-fi, but not good for those who read for the story itself. ( )

This is a post-apocalyptic science fiction story taking place after some sort of cosmic disaster. Orion is a Subpar. She and the rest of the Subpars are marginally more resistant to the radioactive particles put out by the flash curtain that surround the area where she lives. She and her fellow subpars are expected to mine dangerous tunnels to find cirium which is the only element that can shield humanity from the radiation. The job is very dangerous but there is hope. Any miner who mines 400 grams of cirium gets a free pass into the protected city.

Getting her 400 grams and enough cirium to save her father and her partner Dram is Orion's only goal. She has an added advantage in that she can detect where cirium deposits are. It is an advantage that only some Subpars have. But those who control the outposts don't want their miners to earn their way out. What Orion believes to be true about her work and her society is not true.

After another disaster, new people are brought in to the outpost and, through them, Orion learns more about how her world is governed. She runs afoul of the governors of her outpost and is sent to another along with her partner Dram and some others. They go through a variety of horrible situations and Orion's goal changes to a search for freedom and survival. Along the way she meets various revolutionaries who hone her thinking and refine her goals.

This is a story of a young woman learning about her world and trying to find herself a place in it. If that means she has to start a revolution, she is more than okay with that. I liked Orion's loyalty to her father. I liked her growing and changing relationship with her partner Dram. I liked Orion's determination to find a better life for herself and her fellow Subpars.

This was an entertaining story with well-drawn characters. I liked that it was filled with revelations. I only wish that I would have gotten a glimpse of life for those in the protected areas so that I could get a more well-rounded picture of the world. ( )
