"The burn was the first rite of passage." Man! Strap in when you open this novel, because you are in for an intense ride! The Salt Line is everything a solid dystopian novel should be. We learn that the burn referred to in the first sentence, is the burn of a Stamp. A small device [...]

The Address – Review

"We all have our own magnificent prisons, even the queen, I'd venture." I love how fitting this quote is for both narrators in The Address.
