OtherbornOtherborn Series #1Anna SilverPublished: April 4th by Sapphine Star PublishingLondon and her teenage friends live in a reprocessed world.Confined within Capital City's concrete walls, London has done the impossible and the illegal. She's created something New- a song. But her mentor, club owner Pauly, is not impressed. Since the historic Energy Crisis forced everyone behind walls generations ago, the Tycoons have ensured there is truly nothing new allowed under the sun. Pauly warns London to keep her song to herself, if she knows what's good for her.What he doesn't know is that London is keeping an even bigger secret: she dreams. And she's not alone. London's band-mates and friends have begun dreaming as well, seeing themselves in "night pictures" as being from another world. As Otherborn, they must piece together the story of their astral avatars, the Others, in order to save their world from a dreamless, hopeless future.When Pauly is murdered and an Otherborn goes missing, London realizes someone is hunting them down. Escaping along the Outroads, they brave the deserted Houselands with only their dreams to guide them. Can they find their friend before the assassin finds them? Will being Otherborn save their lives, or destroy them?
Otherborn is the first in a series by the same name by Anna Silver. The story is about young London, a dreamer in a time when dreaming is illegal. The book starts out slightly slow, but quickly picks up speed and dives into an intense and suspenseful ride with ups, downs, and sharp turns. I was left crying or laughing or just sitting there, staring blankly at the window for a few moments while I tried to get myself back together. This book is fantastic!
...okay, enough with this professional sweetness..

Oh my God, guys, this book is so good... I will admit I was a little leery of this one-- SciFi and I have never made friends, and typically I get so bored I can't even finish. But Otherborn has just enough dystopian to keep my interest, and **** I'm glad it did! This is AWESOMEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Pardon the fangirling, but there's about...well, nothing I can say that won't ruin it for you all so you'll just have to take my insanity to heart and give this one a try... I have already ordered a paperback for myself so I HIGHLY doubt you'll regret it. So so so so SOOOO good!
The only reason this is 4 stars is because of the slow-ish start.. But as long as you don't have an attention span shorter than a gnats' (and yes, I admit this about myself) you can get through it. :)
Seriously, just go buy it now. Shoo.
