Review: London Eye (Toxic City #1) by Tim Lebbon

The Hunger Games meets The X-Men in an exciting post-apocalyptic debut.
Two years after London is struck by a devastating terrorist attack, it is cut off from the world, protected by a military force known as Choppers.
The rest of Britain believe that the city is now a toxic, uninhabited wasteland. But Jack and his friends, some of whom lost family on what has become known as Doomsday, know that the reality is very different.
At great risk, they have been gathering evidence about what is really happening in London, and it is incredible. Because the handful of Londons survivors are changing. Developing strange, fantastic powers. Evolving.
areas, if not the entire world. What i liked about this one is that it deals with an isolated area of devistation. The characters are such a hodge-podge of personalities. It makes for a very funny , entertaining & engaging read. Some of the exploits these young people go through is scarey. They are a brave and determined group of people. The way the author describes the decay and devistation to the city is hauntingly realistic. I am looking forward to reading more in the Toxic City series.
