Book Review: The Wilds (The Wilds Series Book One) by Donna Augustine

I met a Plaguer today, one of the very few who survived the last outbreak of Bloody Death. She said horrible things about me and my companions. We all called her crazy afterward and claimed this was the reason they needed to be locked up. They spread lies that could hurt our fragile world, nearly brought to extinction 150 years ago. 
But here's the catch: she was right about me. I have a niggling fear that she was right about my friends, as well. What if the Plaguers are right about the people in charge? What if they are right about everything?

*This book is for all the Plaguers, the truth sayers branded and marked as liars, often hunted and sometimes forgotten. This book is for the girl who was right. 

Dahlia is a Plaguer and has been locked in an insane asylum since she was 4. She is one of very few who survived the Bloody Death and people think she’s crazy. She has learned to keep secret was she can see or her life will be over. She has a plan to escape but that’s easier said than done. Then there’s Dax. She doesn’t know what to make of him. He’s not a Dark Walker but he’s definitely something special. One thing Dahlia knows for sure is that if she ever escapes no one will control her again and she will always fight for those that need it!

This series is different than the others that I’ve read by Augustine. The beginning was slower than I’m used to with her books but I was not disappointed. She is able to make each of her series distinctive whereas some author’s books all have the same feel. This is such a bonus! One of the most unique story lines that kept be guessing all the way to the end. I do have to say that when I got the end of the book I did state I hate you! To the author but only because I need the second book already. You won’t regret reading another exceptional series by Donna Augustine!

About the Author:
Donna Augustine was an odd child, had a brief moment of conformity in early adulthood and then decided to embrace her craziness as the years rolled by. It's her inner crazy that she credits with coming up with the ideas for her books. One part hypochondriac, a few dashes of paranoia, topped with a sliver of uptight and delivered with a relaxed flair, she kicked the proverbial box down the yellow brick road a couple years ago to embrace her true self.

She can be reached by a carrier pigeon, set free in a south by north direction, where she resides in Neverland with her two Siberian cats. Cats who, by the way, aren't as hypoallergenic as she believed they'd be.

For the conventional minded, and those of you without a pigeon on hand, she can be reached at She responds to most emails within three dusk periods.

P.S. For those of you looking for the discarded box, it was sitting beside the road for a while but has since disappeared completely.

  1. I have loved all of Donna Augustine's books I have read. I guess I have to add more to my "to read soon" list!
