Akkad’s novel tells of the Second American Civil War that begins in 2074, with the North and South once again split – this time about fossil fuel. When her father is killed, Sarat Chestnut is sent to Camp Patience with her mom and brother. There she falls under an ideological man’s influence and he trains her as one of the South’s premium weapons. I thought the novel was well paced and a solid dystopian piece, but it lacked, for me, the same emotional connection as Station Eleven.
