The first in a planned series, The Fountain of the Earth is set on the West Coast following a catastrophic solar flare that has destroyed civilization, leaving only a few people struggling to survive. After witnessing the vicious murder of her mother, Terra Vonn (15) has a singular focus—exacting revenge on the killers. But before she can complete her plans, savagery intervenes and she is cast alone into a brutal post-apocalyptic world. As she trails the men south through a land filled with cannibalistic criminals, slave traders, and lunatics, the hunter becomes the hunted. Terra quickly learns that she is neither as tough nor as brave as she thinks she is. Worse, she may be the only one who stands between what little remains of civilization and destruction.

I always wondered what the world would hold if something drastic happened and we had to begin again.  Sadly, I really believe this author paints a realistic picture of a possible outcome.   The story is centered around Terra and her journey of coming into her full potential.  She really is an amazing little girl.  He road to freedom is filled with trails and tribulations.  She has so many things happen to her before she can finally breath and embrace her own happiness.   She definitely earned it!

It was an enjoyable read.  I recommend it to YA lovers!!
