Carrier Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway

Carrier (The Line #1)
Twenty-two -year-old Naya has spent nearly half her life as a sex slave in a government institution called The Line. When she’s kicked out after getting pregnant with twins, she’s got no way to earn a living and a horrifying choice to make: find someone to replace her, or have her babies taken in her stead.

A doctor with a history of aiding ex-Line girls, Ric Bennett, wants to help. He runs a team of rebels that can delete Naya’s records and free her forever. But when The Line sniffs out his plan, things get bloody, fast. Naya means more to them than just a chance at fresh faces—her twins are part of the government’s larger plan.

As they hide from government search parties, Ric comes to admire Naya’s quiet strength. And Naya realizes Ric might be a man she can trust. If they make it off the grid, they could build a new life. But first they’ll have to survive the long, vicious reach of The Line.

 Carrier kept me on my toes throughout the entire novel. I never knew what to expect from one scene to the next and I loved it! I love suspenseful novels filled with unexpected twists and turns. And I love that the surprises weren't completely out there. Everything fit the story but was still unexpected.

I can't wait to continue Naya's journey to discover who she is in the next novel(s) in the series. Her background is so mysterious and the intentions of The Line are shrouded in mystery. I want to know everything!! I loved watching Naya open up to the people outside The Line. Every person she grew close to warmed my heart.

The world Anne has created is and interesting and unique place. The city is enclosed, shut off from the outside world. Everything is owned by one company: Auberge. Everything is controlled by them and they know everybody's secrets. Naya and Ric must race to uncover their plans and stop them in their tracks.

Carrier is for people who don't mind mature themes woven into the novel. It's a tale of how one girl learns to open up after a lifetime of abuse. It's also an adventure of a boy and girl who must race against time to protect the girl and her unborn twins and save the world.
