The Glass Arrow


The Glass Arrow

Kristen Simmons
Monday, Apr 17, 2017

Fifteen year old Aya has learned to hide from the men who hunt females, then auction off their breeding rights to the highest bidder. She has avoided capture and lived freely with a rag tag group of women in the mountains. But when she is caught by businessmen on a hunting trip, she must learn to fight to survive in a whole new way.

I was hooked from the first few pages. This book was very well written, with some very raw, emotional, and controversial scenes/topics. Kristen Simmons shows a dystopian world where the feminist struggle is eliminated and their worst fears are brought to life. Her writing is very vivid and real with shocking twists and turns, that has the reader holding on to the edge of their seat.

The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in this book.
