@EgmontUSA #Review #Giveaway of Burn Out (Burn Out #1) by @KristiHelvig

Most people want to save the world; seventeen-year-old Tora Reynolds just wants to get the hell off of it. One of the last survivors in Earth's final years, Tora yearns to escape the wasteland her planet has become after the sun turns "red giant," but discovers her fellow survivors are even deadlier than the hostile environment.

Holed up in an underground shelter, Tora is alone--her brilliant scientist father murdered, her mother and sister burned to death. She dreams of living on a planet with oceans, plants, and animals. Unfortunately, the oceans dried out ages ago, the only plants are giant cacti with deadly spines, and her pet, Trigger, is a gun--one of the bio-energetic weapons her father created for the government before his conscience kicked in.

When family friend, Markus, arrives with mercenaries to take the weapons by force, Tora's fury turns to fear when government ships descend in an attempt to kill them all. She forges an unlikely alliance with Markus and his rag-tag group of raiders, including a smart but quiet soldier named James. Tora must quickly figure out who she can trust, as she must choose between saving herself by giving up the guns or honoring her father's request to save humanity from the most lethal weapons in existence.

Space at its best.  This book really creeped me out. I think its psychic! Right before I started to read this book. I was watching tv and a thing popped up on Jeopardy about 5 million years from now the sun will expand and burn everything up. Maybe even the Earth.  So I was kinda freaked out that when I started reading this book THAT WAS WHAT WAS GOING ON!!!! I  was like Bug Eyed!!  

Well the only issue I had with this one which the author was kind enough to clear up.  Was that the weapons that the government are after are bio weapons that will only fire for the person's energy etc.  that they are tuned for.  So that was my only question cause I was like what your telling me no one else can make guns haha. That just didn't fly with me.  So once that was cleared up this book was a die hard awesome book that should not be missed.  It is deff one that I will be seeing about tracking down a signed copy.
