Blurb/Synopsis: The first in a planned series, The Fountain of the Earth is set on the West Coast following a catastrophic solar flare that has destroyed civilization, leaving only a few people struggling to survive. After witnessing the vicious murder of her mother, Terra Vonn (15) has a singular focus—exacting revenge on the killers. But before she can complete her plans, savagery intervenes and she is cast alone into a brutal post-apocalyptic world. As she trails the men south through a land filled with cannibalistic criminals, slave traders, and lunatics, the hunter becomes the hunted. Terra quickly learns that she is neither as tough nor as brave as she thinks she is. Worse, she may be the only one who stands between what little remains of civilization and destruction.

FTC Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the author, editor, publisher, or Promo Host. This is my honest opinion about this book and I did not receive any monetary compensation for writing this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.

My Rant: The Fountain of the Earth was earth shattering. I could not believe that this book packed a huge punch and then some. Once you read the first page you are hooked on the story and you can’t seem to let it go. This high intensity story ravaged my emotions; I had no control over what I was feeling because this story rocks you to the core. The main character Terra Vonn completely captured me. In this book she endures so much, even I couldn’t imagine how I would have handled her life. She is a brave girl. You couldn’t ask for a better heroine. Her struggles begin and they never stop and that is why I idolized her perseverance. The authors writing style was smooth, he brought the characters to life and made me care for them in ways that are unspeakable. Once you begin to read the fountain of the Earth you cannot stop. It is an addictive rush of action that never waivers. The author's spins this plot uniquely; he grips you and keeps you focused on the events that transpire in the book and before you know it you’re done. I laughed; I cried and baste in the glory of revenge. Hands down this is one of the best YA stories I have read in a long time. Now as you all know I don’t read a lot of YA but dam it, this book takes you there and then some. I am so glad I was on a book tour for this book, if I wasn’t I would have missed out on a real treat. This is the first time I have read work from this author and I will tell you it won’t be my last. The fountain of the earth is riveting and that is why I am putting this book on my top 2014 list. If you don’t believe me grab a copy for yourself and hit me up online so we can chat about it. I can guarantee you will feel the same way I do about this book.

My Recommendation

I rated this book 5 out of 5 Purple Rant Hearts and would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys an action packed YA story.
