The premise for Waterfall and Waterproof reads like nonfiction and perhaps contains a warning. People have fought over water rights since they began claiming land as their own and the fights continue into present day. This series is a thought provoking look at a future that we could be living.
Zach and Vivienne live in a government run complex. When the facility is attacked, the big question is, will they stay or will they go.
“Why anyone thought the idiots in Washington could manage this disaster is beyond me.”
Zach’s comment has a ring of truth to it, don’t you think?
Pollution and terrorism make Vivienne’s decision for her.
Vivenne and Zach’s sexual banter had me chuckling, even though they are only “just friends”.
Does Vivienne’s desire to be a sword wielding, ass kicking ninja type come true?
As their world falls down around them and the country becomes a military state, it is the same old story, the rich survive and the poor are…well, it is not good. Who can you trust in such desperate times?
I loved Waterfall from the beginning to the end. It grabbed me early and I held on for the ride of sadness. loss, fear, terror, confusion and the struggle to survive in a world gone crazy.
The cliffhanger had me reaching for Book II, Waterproof. I think it will do the same to you.
I received Waterfall by Amber Garr in return for an honest review.
(The Water Crisis Chonicles, #1)
Genres: Dystopia, New Adult
The water is gone. The wars have begun.
Clean water is a luxury most can no longer afford. Climate change, industrial sabotage, and greed have turned country against country as each one tries to provide for its citizens. Terrorist groups target desalinization plants and frustrated governments hunt those who work against them. Rationing, sequestering, and patrolling have become routine at a time when there are too many people and not enough resources.
While the world around them disintegrates into chaos, Zach and Vivienne hope that their life in a government-run complex will retain some semblance of normalcy. But when attacks on their water supplies bring war to their sheltered community, they must accept their new fate. Stay and fight or flee and endure—it’s a difficult decision with lasting consequences.
Will they choose what’s safe? Or will they choose to survive?

Waterproof kicks off with action that had me racing through the pages.
Anyone who bucked the system was considered a deserter and dealt with “appropriately.”
Pollution, population overcrowding, terrorists destroying the desalinization plants, greed, nuclear holocaust, disease, martial law, the draft – once in, never out – who will survive?
The groups dynamic changes as the characters come and go, whether by choice or death. I do wonder who will be left standing.
The horror is unbelievably grotesque. The mad scientists are on the loose.
This is one of those stories that will give you food for thought. In an apocalypse, who will survive? Is it the haves or have nots? Is it the strongest or the smartest? Is the sacrifice of the many for the survival of the few the rule of thumb? How do people twist their minds into thinking heinous acts are acceptable? Will there be any humanity left on the planet?
How far would you go to save the one you love?
Science fiction meets horror and it ain’t pretty.
The writing was so detailed I could see it, feel it, and it gave me shivers. The characters are well developed and become more complex as they grow and learn to survive and love in a new world.
I am very curious to see where this ends, to find out how many of their makeshift family will survive.
I do love a happy ever after, but we will have to wait and see. Waterproof has no cliffhanger, but it does make me eager to read the next book in the series, Watermarked.
Dying of thirst is the new reality.
Five years after the last drop of clean water disappeared, global societies collapsed and nuclear war shattered all hope of recovery. In a place now only a skeleton of its former self, survivors fight to avoid capture by the government. Forced to work in factories that produce the only drinking water available, those who go in, never come out.
Zach and Vivienne have lived as deserters since they were teenagers. Fighting amongst their own and scrounging for the necessities of life, they’ve learned to rely on each other in every way. Yet when tragedy strikes and the true objectives of the government facility are revealed, their world is ripped apart. A fate once thought to hold their demise may be the sole answer to their survival. Who can they trust? Who can they believe?
In this life, it pays to be waterproof.
