In a society that has been separated from the rest of the Earth, for 700 years, the only way for one man to save his family, is to break the law.
The Ground is the post-apocalyptic/dystopian world in which the government runs all. As the population expands, so does the city, only here, the city expands up; as more grounds are added, those that are on the bottom become disease filled and inescapable, while those near the top are filled with more space, and greater luxuries.
In this story, we meet Nick Burke and his family. He has just 389 square feet to live in, and small spaces breed disease, and as a mandatory quarantine comes over the ground, Nick only has one choice...he must escape to a higher ground, if he wants to save his family.
Escaping is not as easy as it might seem, because if the government doesn't want you going to a higher ground, you aren't going. However, Nick isn't going to let that happen, and he joins forces with a group of men, determined to do the same as Nick...get their families to higher ground. Even if that means breaking a law, that is punishable by death.
This book is a post-apocalyptic thriller, and it lives up to it. I don't want to ruin the story, but I will say, this story doesn't end how you might imagine. It does however, leave you ready to read the next book in the series.
William Amerman does an excellent job of bringing the post-apocalyptic world to life, and I found myself on the edge of my seat wondering what turn events was next for Nick. If you are interested in reading this book, you can fine it HERE. I highly recommend it!
