Synopsis:
One hundred and fifty years after the earth was ravaged by war, the two self-sustaining towers built by OmniLab continue to offer a safe haven for those who paid the hefty price to assure their family's survival. But on the surface, there are others who have survived over the years struggling to barter and trade artifacts found within the ruins of the crumbling cities in exchange for critical supplies.

When Kayla, a ruin rat skilled in computer hacking and scavenging, discovers a strange artifact known as The Aurelia Data Cube, she finds herself inadvertently caught up in a series of events that threatens the lives of the mysterious and elusive people within OmniLab.

Carl, an unorthodox negotiator with a head for business, is determined to eradicate the corruption amongst his OmniLab brethren and has no qualms about using Kayla to do it. Unfortunately, he wasn't counting on the vastness of the corruption or his own feelings for the headstrong woman who turns his life upside down.

Caught between the life she knew and a dangerous world that's claimed her as their own, Kayla learns the fearful truth behind just how far one man will go to obtain power and how far she'll go to survive.

The Two Towers (The Two Towers series)My Review:
The Two Towers by Jamie A. Waters

What an exciting start to a fabulous new series! Jamie A. Waters' The Two Towers sucked me in and left me wanting more.

In a dystopian society, Kayla is highly skilled at recovering artifacts that can further society and traded for survival. When her skills get her noticed by Omnilab, the powers within the towers...Kayla's simple scavenging life will never be the same.

Can you say, "I didn't see that coming"...
Totally unexpected plot twists and turns keeps The Two Towers jumping through your imagination, but Waters also writes a highly original tale with expert world building and fabulous characters that had me clinging to the pages. Quite simply, this book was a perfect match for my reading tastes. It had science fiction, dystopia, and romance all wrapped up in one marvelous storyline. I will be anxiously awaiting the continuation of this story.
