Skylark (Skylark #1) by Meagan Spooner #BookReview

 
 
Sixteen-year-old Lark Ainsley has never seen the sky.

Her world ends at the edge of the vast domed barrier of energy enclosing all that’s left of humanity. For two hundred years the city has sustained this barrier by harvesting its children's innate magical energy when they reach adolescence. When it’s Lark’s turn to be harvested, she finds herself trapped in a nightmarish web of experiments and learns she is something out of legend itself: a Renewable, able to regenerate her own power after it’s been stripped.

Forced to flee the only home she knows to avoid life as a human battery, Lark must fight her way through the terrible wilderness beyond the edge of the world. With the city’s clockwork creations close on her heels and a strange wild boy stalking her in the countryside, she must move quickly if she is to have any hope of survival. She’s heard the stories that somewhere to the west are others like her, hidden in secret—but can she stay alive long enough to find them?

I tried for 200 pages to love this book!! The story sounded so interesting!! I was pulled in during the first part of the book. But a little after the second part started the story just lost me. I understand that this world is full of magic called the resource but you still need some laws. And with this going from machines that are blended with magic to trees trying to eat the MC and her hoping through some portals. I just had to give up. It was just way to far fetched for me.
