Georgianna knows just how ruthless the Adveni are. Patching up their victims since the invasion, she learned to keep her head down and stay focused on her work. She’s lost too many friends to their oppressive rule. She knows what happens when you attract their attention.
But having a pass into the infamous Lyndbury Compound doesn’t come free. Delivering a message to one of the ‘buryd’ inmates, Georgianna discovers that a childhood friend has been sold as a slave, and has taken important information that could help the rebel forces.
A daring escape is the only option. Georgianna’s plan to save her friend sparks the rebels into action, catching the attention of one of the most ruthless Adveni there is. Georgianna must withstand the Lightning Commander before the sparks of the revolution bring them all down in flames.

I liked this idea of Lyndbury it's a realistic idea 'just shove all the criminals together and forget about them' I am sure this has been suggested for various island over the years? I also thought that having slang 'buryd alive' made it feel more realistic as local slang is something that seem to naturally grow in the real world but is sometime forgotten about when it comes to creating new worlds.
The first few chapters of this book introduces us to a lot of different characters as our main character Georgianna seem to very well connected and knows people for every section of society. In these first few chapters I was slightly over whelmed by the number of characters we where being briefly introduced to, but later on all theses different character came back and their stories intertwined, this made me thankful for that first brief introductions.
It took me a while to get into this book as to start with there seem to be quite a few long descriptions of the history of different people and places. However by the time I was half way though I was hooked. This book is full of twists and turns, heart breaking moments and some intriguing characters (Edtroka). It also has a great ending what requires me to keep reading this series but also, I seem to have developed some strong feels (both for and against) some of these characters so I can't wait to see what happens to them later on in this series.
You are an inmate, not a medic. You should get used to that.”
On the planet Os-Veruh, the native Veniche have endured a decade under the oppressive rule of a race of invaders, the Adveni.
When Georgianna Lennox, a Veniche medic, discovers her childhood friend has been sold into slavery, she seeks help from a revolutionary outlaw group.
As Georgianna’s struggle to save one life ignites a battle to liberate her homeworld, is she about to discover that it is better to be dead than ‘buryd’?
A slow but ok read. I read it bit I just couldn't get Into it. 3*.
The characters in this book are so believable I felt like I know them.
I encourage anyone to give this book a try. I am not a fan of sci-fi but this book has made me think that I should give the genre a try.
I wish Chele Cooke all the best with her writing career and cannot wait for her next book to be released.
I'm not going to use this review to tell you about the story line - you need to read it yourself for that but.......
I feel like Georgianna is a friend, I have got to know her so well. Chele Cooke has taken me on a journey, getting to know George, her family, her friends and others who I quite frankly would avoid at all costs. I was on the edge of my seat in places with my heart racing. I would highly recommend this book, whether or not you're interest is sci-fi or not.
Chele Cooke - you are up there with my favourite authors!!
