“No one wants to know. Even the earth’s crust and mantle, all of it. Of course it all belongs to God. And he’s sick of us, of our choices here. ‘And the Lord said, I will destroy man, whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air ; for it repenteth me that I have made them.’ And ‘behold, I will destroy them with the earth,’ and ‘I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger.’ And that’s the truth. That is a promise he’s made, this catastrophic act of God. That’s what we’re seeing here, a purging. We are— collectively— evil people in an evil time.”

Wow this is DARK. Cielo is a 15 year old undocumented immigrant who stays behind after everyone else is evacuating following a devastating earthquake in Eugene, Oregon. Or almost everyone. She was afraid that she would be caught and deported if she had gone. But she is also worried about her mother, who has gotten caught up in a growing cult, the Collection of Redeemed Souls. And Cielo quickly finds out she's not the only one that stayed behind.

I really enjoyed this even though it was bleak and often tough to read.

Thank you netgalley and Crooked Lane books for giving me an advanced review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )
