Oceans apart, a young musician and a “special” soldier embark on a perilous journey for home fueled by the unyielding pursuit of freedom from the Authority. 

Sixteen-year-old prodigy, Liza Randusky, waits imprisoned, blamed for the undead plague that’s slowly destroying the planet. Banished to an island where she’ll never play her beloved piano again, Liza’s steadfast sense of justice and passion for music may have the power to change her destiny. But will it be enough...

To strike back at the new world order, the troubled son of a preacher, Thomas Ripley-Hatter, suffers unspeakable alterations by the Underground to join a secret Army. Tommy knows that all hope lies in human-weapons like himself, and that somehow he must cling to his sanity…while letting loose the monster to win.

The battle begins for the last-standing sliver of humanity: Anthem

This was a cool science fiction YA read.  There were times I may have liked a little more detail to explain why or how things turned into the way they were.  But Logan Keys has painted a fascinating future where many are dying of cancer, turning into zombies, or going to extreme measures to live longer.  We are introduced to two very remarkable main characters, Tom and Liza.  And I liked that she kept me guessing as to how these two characters would converge in the story.  There is also several secondary characters who I will be anxious to read more about in the next installment of this story.  I look forward to reading it.  This story was original and exciting.
