The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.



This book started off really good. And I found my interest slowly waning the further I got into the book.

The idea was really cool, and the writing style was decent. I had problems with the twists and turns the book took. I just encountered many places that I wanted to roll my eyes.

Overall, I wasn’t thrilled with this book.
