Oceans apart, a young musician and a “special” soldier embark on a perilous journey for home fueled by the unyielding pursuit of freedom from the Authority. Sixteen-year-old prodigy, Liza Randusky, waits imprisoned, blamed for the undead plague that’s slowly destroying the planet. Banished to an island where she’ll never play her beloved piano again, Liza’s steadfast sense of justice and passion for music may have the power to change her destiny. But will it be enough... To strike back at the new world order, the troubled son of a preacher, Thomas Ripley-Hatter, suffers unspeakable alterations by the Underground to join a secret Army. Tommy knows that all hope lies in human-weapons like himself, and that somehow he must cling to his sanity…while letting loose the monster to win. The battle begins for the last-standing sliver of humanity: Anthem.
Review by Lissa
God's Anthem, is a fresh new take on the YA/Dystopian genre. Combining all sorts of monsters into this story. Liza is a girl, just waiting to die, inside a type of prison no one leaves from. Dreaming of Anthem City, where its Paradise. Tommy is a boy who was angry from the beginning. Being molded and turned into something the UG wants. The only way I can really describe it, it reminds of the hulk.
When Liza learns she can go back. The city is not what she imagined. The dull colors and the Authority. There she meets a whole cast of characters. Including, Jeremy. Who is trying to rebel against a society, whose turned their backs on them.
It did take a minute for me to get into it. But once you really get it. It's freaking awesome. There's a lot of action, heart pumping and intense. You can't help but hurriedly turn the page.
