The Plantation by Stella Samiotou Fitzsimons

A century has passed since they arrived. Human history has been erased. Children are enslaved on Alien plantations. Some have heard whispers of the existence of a rebel band of humans who roam free in the forests. Most slaves dare not speak of the rebels for fear the mutant guards will grab and make an example of them.

Seventeen-year-old Freya is pulled away in the night not by the mutants, but by her old friend Finn, to join the Saviors, the mythic band of rebel teens. Her bliss fades when she discovers she is the only Savior without a special ability. She is the odd one out, slowly pushing Finn away, defying Damian, the leader of the Saviors, and antagonizing the fierce and beautiful Daphne. In her despair Freya reaches deep within to discover a dark destiny, a truth so heavy it threatens to destroy her.

My Review:

Excellent book! The Plantation is unique, I haven't read anything like it. The writing was remarkable, the characters were entertaining, and the storyline was phenomenal. It kept me turning the pages until I read the very last line.

This story reminds me Lost in the fact that the Saviors are hiding out in abandoned buildings, hoping that they won't be discovered by the Sliman and aliens.

The Plantations are terrible places for humans to be. The children that are held there are slaves to the aliens. When their purpose has been fulfilled bad things happen, the aliens see to it that they have no memories of that life.

Freya was rescued from the Plantation by her friend Finn. They join a group of teens called the Saviors. All they want is to be free from the aliens.

I recommend this to anyone looking for a fresh new read!

The Dark Legion (The Plantation 2)

They have waited for her all these years. She lives hidden from their vulture-like drones, hidden in the dark, cavernous lair of her enemies. The unseen ones will come for her. Their very existence depends on finding her, the girl with the gift of light, of power, of life. Haunted by a past she does not understand, by a destiny they plan for her, Freya must leave the Saviors behind, leave Damian and Finn, leave even little Pip and embark on a perilous journey with a beastly warrior. She will venture out beyond the ends of the charted lands, risking all she holds dear to cross the dead zone to where the Dark Legion awaits.
