Les Oubliés / The Forgotten
#Fantasy #Dystopia #Friendship
250 years after World War IV, only a few cities manage to remain, protecting their population thanks to the domes separating them from the rest of the world. Every year, the New Global Order determines the future of all the sixteen-year-old. And every year, some of them disappear. They are called the Forgotten.
Eléa’s best-friend is one of them.
«We are in the heart of the action and above all, we really feel the feelings of the characters deep down. We know what they’re thinking, what they’re going to do, how they’re going to do it.» - Babelio’s opinion
"The author handles words with talent, her descriptions are realistic and even violent for a specific passage. She does not hesitate to abuse her characters. She also knew how to speak with accuracy of the consequences of a war that is in term of human loss, that of the psychological trauma." - Babelio's review
"He remains silent for a moment, his eyes lost in mine. I wonder if one day I will get used to that look. I always feel as if he's looking right through me, reading my innermost being. Finally, he leans over me, captures my lips passionately, almost desperately, as if it's the last time. I return his kiss and he slides me onto his lap, not taking his lips off. I don't care about making a spectacle of myself, I realize that we both need this moment, perhaps to ward off fate or to prove one last time how much we care about each other. I feel tears mingling with our kiss. I can't tell if they are coming from him or from me."
