    1. The story of Kain and Shilo conquered my heart in a way that it will be difficult for me to let it go. Unlike most dystopian novels, whose plots sound promising but fail to deliver, this story really struck me. The book flows rapidly, and I found yours truly reading so quickly that I had to force myself to slow down. From the very first moment, I felt invested in the characters. There was not a single one that I regretted coming into the story. Not even the Nigredo. (Adored Bethie!) I realize th [...]


    2. Amongst the Ruins is my new book love. Saewod Tice has written an incredibly awesome Dystopian. It’s a beautiful love story, with struggles of a young girl growing up in world where men claim women as property to repopulate the earth. Tice put so much depth into her characters, and this dystopian storyline, that I felt like I was right there with Shilo, living and feeling everything she felt in this future world. You better believe I will be begging Saewod Tice for the second book in the The C [...]


    3. *Received ebook from author on for an honest review; also posted on under Leanne GoonAmongst the Ruins by Saewod Tice opens up with a chilling scene where Shilo’s mother helps bring a new baby into the world, with the threat of failure being her death and the sexual slavery of her elder daughter, Mazy. From this first chapter, the reader understands the desperate aftermath the world has disintegrated into, especially the dire circumstances of being a woman or young female child in that world [...]


    4. Eight clans now rule the land; their only purpose is to re-establish themselves amongst the survivors of the earth’s collapse. Breeding any, and every, woman is the only way this can ensured within each clan. Yet there are those who do not agree with this decree.Shilo yearns to free herself of the stigma surrounding her origins. Her pale skin and hair set her apart from those around her, a fact that her mother does her best to keep from everyone else. Try as she might, she doesn’t quite unde [...]


    5. I absolutely loved this book and read it in 1 day! However I will admit that I am disappointed in the ending of this book! No, I don't always need a happy ending but seriously. What is the author's reasons for ending this book this way? Did she want to stay away from predictability? In this case I would of loved the predictable ending I assumed was going to happen, but didn't, over the real endingIs the possibility there that in Book 2 we find out that the ending of Book 1 really didn't happen t [...]


    6. I dont often give books higher than a 3. Only when I can't put one down do the stars go higher. I enjoyed this one. Loved Shilo, even though there were a couple of places she annoyed me being so stubborn loved Kain even more ;)


    7. It's the year of 2220 and Earth is trying to repopulate. Ever since she was very young, Shilo has seen for herself what happens to women in this new world, and she promises herself she will never be used as breeding stock or as a man's tool for pleasure. In this new society, anything that takes to repopulate the world is acceptable. Men taking women against their wishes, polygamous marriages, murder if a woman tries to escape and Shilo is the best example of it. Her mother was raped by a man aft [...]


    8. So, uhhhh, I read this like really amazing book, it’s called “Amongst the ruins” and if you don’t read it then, uhhhh, I guess it’s your loss.This book was truly amazing! I received this book from the author for an honest review in return. It's the first novel in the promising 2020 chronicles. When I finished reading ‘Amongst the ruins’ I completely fangirled to the author and she hasn’t replied yet so I think I scared her? Maybe the part where I told her I “loved” her did it [...]


    9. In a world after nuclear war, where only 15% of the worlds population remains, what happens to women? This book explores the complexities of a woman's place in a world where the main goal is re population. This follows one girl and her journey through this world and how she comes to find out how things are not always black and white. It took me less than 8 hours to read this book. I could NOT put it down. I honestly cannot believe that this has not been picked up by a big publisher. I will say t [...]


    10. I loved this story, i couldnt get enough, really different but kept you within the story the whole time. I will say that shillo annoyed me to begin with, she was so dence towards kain then towards the end i was left devastatedease tell me theres going to be another book soon? i must know what happens.Well done saewod, a much deserved 5 *, please hurry up with the next one lol


    11. Amazing I just finished reading this book, and I just have no words. Do yourself a favor, and read this book!!




    12. Not a romance, but it still has great writing that kept me drawn to the story to find out what happened next. A dystopian novel in its truest form.



    13. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.This is the first book in a post-apocalyptic dystopian series. I really enjoyed it!Shiloh is a young girl of 12 when we first meet her. The story follows her life until she reaches the age of 14, when her life changes forever. By the time she is 17 things get even more interesting. Her life is not an easy one, but I found her to be very resourceful and brave, as well as incredibly stubborn. I liked her ve [...]


    14. From the very beginning of this story, during a delivery performed at knife point, I was hooked. This story was a non stop adventure through one girl's life in a world that is trying to recover from nuclear disaster. Shilo is different and that is something that her family tries very hard to hide from everyone. Shilo and her family live in a world that is trying to recover from the Nuclear Disaster of 2020. Few people still populate the world, and all that do have formed 8 clans. It is a world w [...]


    15. A great, fast-paced dystopian romance, with a strong female heroine who has to battle the expectations set on women's roles in society. The author's vision of a post-apocalyptic society where repopulation is the major goal is especially vivid and detailed. The story moves quickly as Shilo and her family go from one clan to another, in an effort to survive since the military state of society doesn't really give her many choices. I loved how fierce and spiky Shilo is despite her feminine beauty, a [...]


    16. 3.5 Stars.At some points I probably would have rated this book 4 or even 4.5 stars, but the infuriating main character Shiloh brought it down. At times she was great and likeable. The first 1/3 and last 1/4 were really enjoyable. But the middle wasn't as good (with the whole female clan, gone for over a year thing). Primarily because of Shiloh. I hate it when authors try too hard to go against the female stereotype in these predominantly-male worlds. Yes we get it, women are not just baby makers [...]


    17. When approached by the author to review this book, I was intrigued with the premise. With all the dystopia-themed books out there, this seemed a genuine contender based on the framework of the story. But what started out promisingly ended disappointingly. With ebooks, I've come to expect a level of typos but the sheer number of grammatical and mechanical errors was distracting and impeded understanding at times. There were instances where reading a sentence two or three times was necessary in or [...]


    18. I love reading sci-fis focused on “the end of the world”. How would the possible survivors live? What would be the cultural effect and what would change due to the circumstances? Here we see the story of Shilo, and accompany her growing up to adulthood. She’s the only POV we see through the story and her journey starts when she’s still only 12 – and right from the start we face the numerous issues her family has to go through. I won’t say much not to spoil the book, but the romance w [...]


    19. I enjoyed this book a lot. I loved growing up with the character, hated how stubborn she became lol but loved how she discovers more about herself and lightens up when she gets to know Kain, her husband. This book takes you on a large journey, from child to woman and surving no matter where life seems to take youe only down fall, I never read any of the reviews as most reviewers tell me just a more detailed synopsis of the book, making it not even necessary to read the bookyway, im not sure I wo [...]


    20. I can't understand all the five star reviews for this book. The grammatical errors alone wouldn't allow me to give it more than 3 stars. It was just okay. Underdeveloped. Overly long. At times choppy. Intensely, graphically violent and sexual. Not sure how it can be considered young adult with the plethora of sex and sexual assault scenes, not to mention the drinking, the blood, the gore. My biggest complaint besides the lack of editing is that it's only half a story. I'm tired of wasting my tim [...]


    21. You guys I am obsessed. I am so completely, irrevocably and undeniably obsessed with this book! What an amazing read! This book is an absolute gem, and I was really surprised at how this book just managed to hook me from the start- because so many authors just don't get the dystopian/breeding/warrior- woman/overbearing-men thing right, and instead the characters just become annoying and predictable. But NOT Amongst the Ruins! This book had so many elements to it that I really loved.But that clif [...]


    22. I was very surprised by this book. I loved it!! Wish there was a continued series. I won this e-book on All Romance ebook site. The author did a very good job, in my opinion. writing this story. Very well written with very good details!! If you like a bit of futuristic story line with a touch of love/romance and a strong female character. This is a book for anyone.
