The water is gone. The wars have begun. Clean water is a luxury most can no longer afford. Climate change, industrial sabotage, and greed have turned country against country as each one tries to provide for its citizens. Terrorist groups target desalinization plants and frustrated governments hunt those who work against them. Rationing, sequestering, and patrolling have become routine at a time when there are too many people and not enough resources. While the world around them disintegrates into chaos, Zach and Vivienne hope that their life in a government-run complex will retain some semblance of normalcy. But when attacks on their water supplies bring war to their sheltered community, they must accept their new fate. Stay and fight or flee and endure—it’s a difficult decision with lasting consequences. Will they choose what’s safe? Or will they choose to survive?
I loved this story. I really think it was a great introduction to Zach and Vee’s story. I really enjoyed seeing the beginning and reading about the events that led up to the war beginning.
Honestly I do not really like the dystopian genre, but I really love this series. Maybe because it seems so much more realistic, like this water shortage can happen in the near future. That scares me and makes it all the more real to me. That might be why I enjoyed this series so much more.
I loved the characters; I thought they were strong, dynamic, and well written. ‘Waterfall’ had a strong plot and was written wonderfully. I do think people need to take a deeper look into water shortages and I am glad that Amber is touching on this in such a captivating series. I cannot wait to read more of ‘The Water Crisis Chronicles’. Amber Garr never disappoints.
