now a prisoner of war camp ruled by Warden Rolladin and her brutal impulsive warlords For 17 year old Skyler Miller Manhattan is a cage that keeps her from the world beyond the city’s borders But for Sky’s 16 year old sister Phee the POW camp is a dangerous playground of possibility and the only home she’d ever wantWhen Sky and Phee discover their mom’s hidden journal from the outbreak of the war they both realize there’s to Manhattan and their mother than either of th Initial Review This book was phenomenal Utter perfection 2015 MUST READ Add it to the shelves people Read the full review A Perfection Called BooksThere are some books that you discover and just know you re going to love That happened to me with this book I fell head over heels in love with City of Savages Everything about it was utter perfection This book needs to be on your to read list so please please please add it to GoodreadsWhat instantly drew me in to this book was the cover It looks so ominous and gritty it perfectly reflects what s on the inside a rough and vicious story of war and survival that s as dangerously beautiful as the cover I love that the setting is Manhattan I love NYC and reading of references to these popular places was intriguing and horrifying It really tugged at my heart strings it made me think What if this happened to me What if my life was uprooted my home destroyed This book is emotionally raw and gritty and intense throughout Manhattan has surrendered and been taken over by the Red Allies as a prisoners of war camp Told from two points of view we see the two sisters Phee and Sky s diverging opinions and thoughts towards their war ravaged city Sky yearns for Before She hates how Manhattan is run by the malicious warden Rolladin and wants to leave Phee clings to the only home she s ever known the decimated city of Manhattan Everything is thrown into chaos when strangers enter the city and share some startling news As Sky Phee and her mother flee they uncover shocking truths and learn about their tattered city and how it really came to beIt s very hard for the uality of writing to capture my attention these days I ve read so many books by now that the writing all starts to sound the same Lee Kelly s writing stole my bookish heart from the beginning though I can t even begin to describe how amazing it is She s a debut author and her writing is better than most seasoned writers out there I kid you not The imagery is perfect her writing is so lyrical She truly pours all of the emotions into her writing She leaves us on the edge of seats she has us shocked and horrified she makes us cry our eyes out Our eyes are glued to the page soaking up her glorious words She illuminates strong themes of family and identity with her powerful words and paints beautiful pictures with her figurative language The premise is so intriguing and I love how Lee feeds us information bit by bit She doesn t dump all the information of the war on us She gives it to us little by little in a subtle way that doesn t sound like it s being told to us We find things out as the character do we aren t given the whole scope we re given what s necessary and relevant to the story It s best that way This book is packed with action tooThis book is told in dual points of view and Lee did an amazing job at it The voices were different they truly reflected their respective thoughts I felt I really got a sense of their personalities and aspirations The older sister Sky is the delicate smart proper and reasonable one Phee is the free spirited wild one I felt I knew them both so well and I admired them both so much What I truly loved was their friendship Watching these two sisters grow and seeing their friendship alter and grow stronger tugged at my heartstrings I loved how close they were They told each other everything they could read each other they supported one another They had the best sister relationship everThe secondary characters had incredible depth I felt I knew them all very well The supporting characters were relatable and realistic Phee and Sky s mother is so strong and caring Ryder is the thoughtful and sweet guy who makes you swoon Sam is the infuriating bossy military type you can t help but love Rolladin is the enigma the woman you just want to know about The relationships in this book are spot on There s a side romance that plays a minimal part in the book I m glad it s small because the most important relationships in this book is between family mainly Sky and Phee and their sisterly love for one another and between them and their mother as they clear away the secrets and understand all the sacrifices made and why things were done as they were I loved the family aspects of this bookThe themes were strong and well executed Identity and family were the biggest ones I saw and Lee did an amazing job with both The book wrapped up beautifully and left me in tears I sat there reeling for hours relishing in the epicness of this book Truly spectacular A masterpiece Best book I ve read in a long time and it will join only 17 other books to my most favorites shelf You need to read this book I wish I could find the words to do this book justice but I can t Just read it
