Indestructible (Indestructible #1)
by Emma L. Adams
Genre: post-apocalyptic Fantasy
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: January 12, 2015
Two years ago, the fiends invaded, with a devastating explosion that split the world in two. Even now, energy blasts strike without warning, destroying everything in their paths. The fiends hunt anyone unlucky enough to escape.
My name is Leah. An energy blast killed my group. It should have killed me, too. Instead, I woke up alone in the wilderness, stalked by the fiends.
My only hope is the red-cloaked strangers who call themselves the Pyros. They can do the impossible and make flames shoot from their hands. Right now, my one chance for safety — and revenge — is with them.
But they’re keeping secrets from me. Like those skeletons hidden under their base. And the reasons I developed a psychic link with someone who can’t stand the sight of me — after he saved my life.
If I don’t uncover the truth about why the world ended the first time, my new safe haven might go up in smoke…
- The beginning was a little rough getting into but once you get passed the first few chapters everything start reading smoothly.
- The writing style was amazing and extremely enjoyable.
- The concept of this book was executed smoothly and almost completely yet it isn’t as it is apart of a trilogy.
- This by no-means is a original idea but was enjoyable and I would believe to be a great spring/summer read.
- Some of the characters were so amazing and original yet others all blended together to create a mush of alike characters in my mind.
- The book is paced in extreme manner which allowed us to get the plot of the story better but it didn’t allow for me to connect to the characters to the level I wanted to.
- Some of what was to come in the book was predictable which was manly a let down especially since this is from a dystopian genre.
- There was almost next to nothing in the love department in the story so, if that is your type of book then dig right in.
- I personally enjoyed not having a love interest in this story yet I know people who will not read books that don’t have a love interest even in the slightest so that may have been a key to turn away readers.
- The world building of this story was unique and somewhat executed as:
- We were able to learn about the world and be introduced to what was happening.
- Yet, it was rushed.
In conclusion the book was very much an enjoyable read but is nowhere near my top reads.
I gave this book 3/5 stars.

About the Author:
Emma spent her childhood creating imaginary worlds to compensate for a disappointingly average reality, so it was probably inevitable that she ended up writing speculative fiction. She was born in Birmingham, UK, which she fled at the first opportunity to study English Literature at Lancaster University. In her three years at Lancaster, she hiked up mountains, skydived in Australia, and endured a traumatic episode involving a swarm of bees in the Costa Rican jungle. She also entertained her creative writing group and baffled her tutors by submitting strange fantasy tales featuring dragons and supernatural monsters to workshops. These included her first publication, a rather bleak dystopian piece, and a disturbing story about a homicidal duck (which she hopes will never see the light of day).
Now a reluctant graduate, Emma refuses to settle down and be normal. When not embarking on wild excursions and writing fantasy novels, she edits and proofreads novels for various publishing houses and reads an improbable number of books. Emma is currently working on the Alliance series, a multiple-universe adult fantasy featuring magic, monsters, cool gadgets and sarcasm. Her upper-YA urban fantasy Darkworld series is published by Curiosity Quills Press.
