Alive (The Generations Trilogy #1) by Scott Sigler Review


From New York Times bestselling author Scott Sigler comes something utterly new: a gripping sci-fi adventure trilogy in the vein of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Maze Runner. A group of young adults awake in a mysterious enclosed space with no knowledge of who they are or how they got there…and an indomitable young woman must lead them not only to answers but to survival.

A young woman awakes trapped in an enclosed space. She has no idea who she is or how she got there. With only her instincts to guide her, she escapes her own confinement—and finds she’s not alone. She frees the others in the room and leads them into a corridor filled with the remains of a war long past. The farther these survivors travel, the worse are the horrors they confront. And as they slowly come to understand what this prison is, they realize that the worst and strangest possibilities they could have imagined don’t even come close to the truth.



This review is going to be a doozy I promise.

Have you ever started a book and put it down after reading a few chapters because you want to savour the story and make it last a long time?????? Well this is the book because I started it on Christmas Eve and ended it on New Year's Day. I started reading it and I was like WTF?????????????? OMG????????? What is going on? Why is she where she is? Why would someone do that to her? Why does she not remember who she is and where she is and why she is there?

Then BAM she is thrown into a world she has no idea is about to change her and her new friends for the rest of their lives. They will have to learn how to survive alone. They will have to fight the beasts that come and attack them. They find out that things do go bump in the night and that scarey stories may be true.

Okay so by now you must be like Tee what the hell are you talking about????????????

Well I am doing a review with no spoilers or glimpses into the story. No name for the main characters and no secrets that unfold in the story will be revealed because this is a book you need to read yourself to enjoy the unfolding of the story to the ending where you are like WTF just happened.

I need book two Alight which comes out on April 5th 2016 by Del Rey. Look for this day and plan on reading this book in one day because you will not be able to put it down. 


In Alive, Scott Sigler introduced readers to an unforgettable young heroine and a mysterious new world reminiscent of those of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Red Rising. Now he expands his singular vision in the next thrilling novel of this powerful sci-fi adventure series.
