In 2042 the United States is recovering from a series of terrorist attacks that upended the government, rewrote our civil liberties, and erased two states from the map. River, a widow, single mother and veteran of the Caliphate Wars, works as a waste hauling trucker in Energy Territory No. 1, formerly known as North Dakota. Living in a dingy motel room with nothing but her books and a semiautomatic pistol for company, she is weeks away from the end of her contract and returning to her young daughter. Finn Cunningham, a hydrologist with the United States Geology Survey (USGS) in Montana, is suspicious of environmental changes he’s seeing in nearby western waterways and decides to investigate. His decision sets him on a collision course with River, sending them both on the run. One a fugitive, the other a reluctant participant, they develop an affinity for each other, sharing stories of past loves, loss, and hardship. 48 States is a one-of-a-kind dystopian thriller about the dangers of extremism and the power of love and forgiveness.

My Review

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

A thrilling dystopian that will stick with you long after you’re finished reading. Evette Davis weaves an incredible tale of a dystopian future that will keep you on the edge of your seat. This book has some of the best character depth I’ve ever read. River is a phenomenal character that is not only believable but relatable on so many facets. A veteran, widow mother that is just trying to get back to her child. Then you have Finn, who is frustratingly lovable. When these opposites are forced together, what will happen? A fast paced plot line that is unique and refreshing. Huge fan!
