The people need Justice, but she's not listening.
One hundred years before, the Great Sickness reduced the world to three dystopian cities. Now the community of Asphodel is trapped underground, waiting for the prophesied maiden of Justice to rescue them.
Sixteen-year-old Astrea is supposed to be this savior - too bad for them she isn't a believer. Astrea fights her fate until discovering a power she never knew she had, and a handsome ally she never expected. With her life in danger, Astrea must choose between saving her city or herself.
This thrilling young adult adventure is the first in the richly-imagined Starbright series, which is laced with mystery, mythology, romance, and magic. Justice Buried will have you questioning fate versus free will along with Astrea's strong female lead, and wondering who can be trusted when everyone is keeping secrets.

Astrea is a sixteen-year-old girl living in the underground city of Asphodel, created to protect the community from the Great Sickness that attacked the human kind one hundred years before.
The citizens of Asphodel are waiting for a prophesied maiden to save them and to take back the outside world and unfortunately that maiden is Astrea. She has a great responsability and even her own home isn't a safe place for her when she has to decide to save everyone or herself.
This book takes you on a thrilling ride in a different world while Astrea learns what responsability and motivation really are and starts the path to find her true self.
I started this book with many doubts without knowing if I would like it or what it was really about, since I decided to request it on NetGalley after reading two lines of the description.
In the beginning it was difficult to immerse myself on the new reality that was Astrea's world but I kept reading and was not disappointed!
In this book you have distopian, futuristic and supernatural elements combined and fused into a great story with a great plot and great and marvellous characthers!
Just the feeling of living in a world where people's lives are contolled by the zodiac, they are controlled by things they have never seen! They pray to the sun, the moon and the stars and they don't know what those are!
When you can join a characther while he or she overcomes adversity is one of the best feelings ever! You're part of the group and you feel that you're there with them in that moment!
I loved this book and I know you'll like it to if you liked books like Divergent or Hunger Games, it has that special dystopian feel to it with a little hint of romance!

P.S: I neeed the next book because I want to see where this is going!
