Read Flashfall Online Free - Orion is a Subpar, expected to mine the tunnels of Outpost Five, near the deadly flash curtain. For generations, her people have chased cirium—the only element that can shield humanity from the curtain’s radioactive particles. She and her caving partner, Dram work the most treacherous tunnel, fighting past flash bats and tunnel gulls, in hopes of mining enough cirium to earn their way into the protected city.
But when newcomers arrive at Outpost Five, Orion uncovers disturbing revelations that make her question everything she thought she knew about life on both sides of the cirium shield. As conditions at the outpost grow increasingly dangerous, it’s up to Orion to forge a way past the flashfall, beyond all boundaries, beyond the world as she knows it.

Read my full review of Flashfall
Flashfall absolutely BLEW ME AWAY. I went into this book with zero expectations, and it was so much more than I ever could have expected or imagined. Not only is Flashfall one of my favorite 2016 debuts, but it's now one of my favorite books of all time! If you're...

I AM DEADED.
I'm surprised it's a duology, although I do think that the worldbuilding needs some work and a lot of stuff needs to be explained. So that's good?
I am emotionally drained.
THIS BOOK YOU GUYS. THIS BOOK.

This debut book was really quite good, and definitely shows that both the author and the series have potential. The pacing in the story speeds up quite a bit around the halfway point, and a lot of things happen pretty quickly. I would have liked a bit more detail in the story in the sec...

This book was pretty amazing. FLASHFALL did for miners, what RED RISING did for Mars. It had the same gritty feeling and strife for people mining in fear. This book is an absolutely splendid read. I was on the edge of my seat completely absorbed in this or...

What a wonderful debut novel! I loved this sci-fi/fantasy-ish dystopian novel! Jenny has created an awesomely freaky but super cool world and I loved all the characters! Especially Orion and Dram (swoons)! I'm really hoping this isn't a stand alone I need more!!!!!
