Review: Skylark by Meagan Spooner

Skylark by Meagan Spooner

Title: Skylark (Skylark #1)
Author:Meagan Spooner
Genre:Dystopian, Young Adult
Publisher: Corgi Books (31st January 2013)
Source: Secret Santa
Format: ARC
Blurb:

Vis in magia, in vita vi. In magic there is power, and in power, life.

For fifteen years, Lark Ainsley waited for the day when her Resource would be harvested and she would finally be an adult. After the harvest she expected a small role in the regular, orderly operation of the City within the Wall. She expected to do her part to maintain the refuge for the last survivors of the Wars. She expected to be a tiny cog in the larger clockwork of the city.

Lark did not expect to become the City’s power supply.

Her only choice is to escape; follow the birds into the wilderness beyond.

Into the Iron Wood.
