By 2093 American life is a strange mix of failing technologies, psychic predictions, and radiation induced abilities. Tattoos are mandatory to differentiate two classes, privileged and slave. Dalton Battista fears that his fading tattoo is a deadly omen. He’s either the heir of the brutal tyrant of the new capital city, Exodia or he’s its prophesied redeemer. Shy, handsome, smart and in possession of powers he doesn’t yet realize, he escapes an order for his execution by fleeing the city with the help of Lydia, who quickly captures his heart. But can he escape a destiny that will force him to marry another girl and return to Exodia as its liberator? Based loosely on the ancient story of Moses, this two book dystopian journey (EXODIA and OUT OF EXODIA) crosses genres, combining young adult, new adult, sci-fi, magical realism, and speculative fiction for an adventure full of symbolism, hidden codes, and thematic imagery

Review by Stormi

This is a very unique book. It is set in the future which at times was a bit confusing. It is really about a boy who is trying to find his place in the world. He was raised one way, but soon finds out that his life wasn't all it was made out to be and that he wasn't who he thought he was. The world this book is based in is one that is harsh. This book made me mad and sad and really made me hope for a savior for these people. This being said this is also a book of hope. The people in this new world are hoping for someone to come and save them. This book was written very well. It makes you feel like you are actually in this world and that makes it hard to ignore all the pain and suffering that the leaders bring to the people who are not of the royal elite class, otherwise known as slaves. The safety and future for all these people is left up to one boy. A boy who along the way finds out who he really is and what he really has to do for himself and for the future of his people. I can't say I loved this book because it's not my normal read, but it was a good read all the same
