Trust will get you killed – and trust will keep you alive.
In a world where the System governs everything, Ava’s a rebel – one who can control other people’s thoughts with her mind. As part of a resistance movement preparing for war, this is a useful skill.
Levi stopped believing in the struggle for freedom when it snatched his parents from him. Now he’s just trying to live a quiet life and control the voices that threaten his sanity.
One night Levi’s sister is arrested. To free her, he has to break old promises and get involved with people he swore he’d never associate with. Ava’s ordered to help him and, together, they leave on a rescue mission. She says he has to trust the rebels. But should they.

And I am here now listening to Armor by Landon Austin, getting all emotional and then rub off those invisible tears to write down the review book I have read almost more than a week ago and was too busy with another storybook to care to write it down. (it’s probably just because am lazy). But the book – Article Three was an “interesting” read. Interesting starting from the curious cover then the synopsis. a good book cover, a curious synopsis, what more does one need to trigger the reader’s interest? Writing patter and the art of story telling. An author’s doesn’t end with composing the solid story line but also the format in which the author writes, the way she/he presents the story to the readers. Article Three triggered that interest from the very beginning and yes, to want to read it I can never define it as a waste of time. It was worth it.
The story revolves around a time centuries ahead of present time. Here, all people abide by the rules and regulations of the System. And though it has turned to maintain peace among all, it limits people’s desires and actions. This resulted in the formation of the REBELS who are secretly penetrating the System by different identities and protesting against it. One such rebel was Lo, Levi’s sister. The story begins with her sneaking into the system to collect evidence against a big massacre and getting caught in the process. Levi, who hates getting involved in the rebellion and anything which might trouble his already troubled life, is thrown into a bunch of them in order to save his sister.
Ava, a rebel, though amateur when it came to accomplishing missions like such, is asked to direct the rescue mission and to add up another member, Leymah and together the three set off. At first Levi finds it hard to fit but as time goes on wit he three of them surviving together, a mutual understanding is developed. However, the mission all of them about some rebels conspiring the rebellion and they know it better than to trust anyone else than themselves and a few people.
“No. They’d done something to ‘er, she was completely apathetic. She got ‘it when we tried to drag ‘er out of there. Levi wouldn’t come wiv us, he stayed wiv ‘er, and the guardists caught them up. We ‘ad to go so I didn’t see when it happened, but . . . No one can’ve survived that.”
What? Who is the speaker here? Who is referred to as she? Is it Lo? Did they really die? Is this how the story is supposed to end? Do you really believe they are dead? Well, pick up the book, if you haven’t already and find out for yourself.
If you are a lover of Science fiction, dystopia with promising adventure, friendship and trust, this one is a must read.
