I had already read the second book, because of the order in which I received them, and other technical issues and it was still fairly similar to previous dystopian books I have read, but it was a good book.

I love how the book opens with Daniel 1:1, 3-5 where King Nebuchadnezzer takes all the strong young men from Jerusalem. This sets the stage for you are about to read. Although this book is geared for teens I really enjoyed it. ... Captives (The Safe Lands) by Jill Williamson

On 2/5 Kate wrote: The themes presented in this book are excellent.

I loved the moral courage shown by Levi, Mason and Shaylinn in standing up against the self-serving draw of the world ... Captives: Review
