ARC Review- Cost of Survival (Worth of Souls Book 1) by Bonnie R. Paulson

Title:  Cost of Survival (Worth of Souls Book 1)  
Author:  Bonnie R. Paulson
Publication Date:  July 6th 2015 by Captiva Publishing

Plot:  Anger isn’t an emotion anymore, it’s more of a survival mode I can’t afford to let go. 

My dad predicted World War III would happen in his life, but he died two years before… with my brother… 

…before Mom and I walked in search of refuge from the bombing. 

Strengthened by her faith, Mom never feels alone. But me? I don’t know what to believe or where to turn. Someone once said keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but I disagree. Friends scare me the most. They know me and my mom. Nothing about them is safe. The ones in charge… Control everything… 

Crud, I’ve started crying because I’m scared I won’t survive World War III. But a bigger part of me is scared I will. 

My mom is bleeding in my arms and she’s making me promise to follow her three rules. 


Don’t trust anyone. 

Stay alive. 

How long do I need to break all three? 

***This YA apocalyptic thriller is the first in a three book series. There are adult themes.*** 

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via Mandy from Promotional Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆

A tale of unquenchable love in the most wretched of places and the paramount power of will and perseverance in the darkest and unlikely of times.

In a world falling apart at the seams, and the only family you’ve got left is bleeding out right in your arms,Cost of Survival centers around the ultimate plight of survival.

With everything you hold most dear to you rapidly slipping away, fear, distrust, suspicion a constant norm of day to day life, and everything you know in chaos--- Kelly, the book’s main protagonist, experience’s the optimum price of what you can lose and what it’s like to hope for something more even when everything seems at lost.

She embarks on a tumultuous, yet unforgettable journey, of trials, discoveries that rapidly test her at every second and every moment; as well as, drives home some of her greatest challenges and most heartbreaking revelations of all--- letting go of the past, praying for a better future, and staying alive.

#A thrilling, fast-paced first installment of a three part series!! Can’t wait to see how part 2 & the final books unfold!!
