The Last Girl - #Book Review

I got this book free, thank to Kindle Firsts.  I grabbed it since it was about the apocolypse.  I love me a good apocolypse story!

What's the price of freedom worth to you?  Is your life worth it?  Someone elses?  A group of people?

A mysterious worldwide epidemic reduces the birthrate of female infants from 50 percent to less than 1 percent. Medical science and governments around the world scramble in an effort to solve the problem, but twenty-five years later there is no cure, and an entire generation grows up with a population of fewer than a thousand women.
Zoey and some of the surviving young women are housed in a scientific research compound dedicated to determining the cause. For two decades, she’s been isolated from her family, treated as a test subject, and locked away—told only that the virus has wiped out the rest of the world’s population.
Captivity is the only life Zoey has ever known, and escaping her heavily armed captors is no easy task, but she’s determined to leave before she is subjected to the next round of tests…a program that no other woman has ever returned from. Even if she’s successful, Zoey has no idea what she’ll encounter in the strange new world beyond the facility’s walls. Winning her freedom will take brutality she never imagined she possessed, as well as all her strength and cunning—but Zoey is ready for war.

Book Review

Zoey doesn't remember the outside, or her parents, or anything other than her Cleric, Lee and the ARC. But she does know she hates it here and thinks it's all a bunch of crap! And somehow she isn't going to end up like the other girls who have gone off to the safe zone. The safe zone, that she is sure doesn't exist. They've been fed lies for far too long and now Zoey's had enough.

She needs to find a way to get out. To see for herself the safe zone. To make sure Terra is ok. What she finds instead of a nightmare come to life. With the help of Terra, Zoey escapes to the outside world. It's nothing like they said. NOTHING. She meets up with Ian who takes her in and cares for her. But she can't stop thinking about going back and with the help of Ian's friends, they are going back in and getting the rest of the girls free.

I liked the premise of the story. But I got hung up on a few things.

1. The needed the girls to reproduce, obviously. But how did they not know that the men's semen determine the sex of the baby, shouldn't they be testing on them?

2. why weren't they using fertility treatments on them to produce more than one egg at a time? They could have a baby mill running!

I did skim certain parts. Because I got tired of reading the same thing over and over again, just rephrased. It was long winded in area's it didn't need to be. But I will say the action parts, they were well written and must made the book great. I wanted Zoey to be an ass kicker, but she was more like a lucky ass kicker. Things just fell into place for her. All the planets aligned and BOOM, Zoey was in the right spot at the right time for all the magical unicorn dust to fall on her setting her free!

The premise of the book is great, was it executed well? Yes. But there were many different ways this book could have gone. I didn't see it going the way that it did. I was hoping for other things, like when Zoey escaped, she see's it's not as bad as she is told. The only thing she did learn, there was no plague. That was a huge lie. But everything else, true.

Why did Lee go with her if he was just going to leave? And what is up with Newton? Now that the director is dead, who will run the ARC? Miss Gwen? Are there other ARC's out there? Harvesting eggs from girls to create more women? To do what with? I get that the population needs to grow, but who is getting these new girls? The highest bidder? Maybe this will all be answered in the rest of the series. Who know? But those are things I want answers too!
