In the far future, humanity has doomed planet Earth to rot and decay, covering her surface with garbage. Now, ancient spirits called the Colossals rise from the debris and attack the remaining survivors, forcing the human race to the brink of extinction. After an attack leaves their people without water, Maya, the last Protector, sets out on a journey for pure water, to save the world before the monsters bring it all to an end.
I recieved this ARC from Diamond Book Distributors through NetGalley.
Debris takes place in a a world that has been left to rot with its surface is covered in garbage, nature is on the decline, and fresh water is scarce. The main character, Maya lives in Maiden, where she is the guardian in training dedicated to fighting the large mechanical creatures called Umbrals inhabited by animal spirits.
The water supply for maiden is detroyed when her mentor, Calista, dies protecting Maiden from an Umbra, Jormangand. She goes on a quest to find the fabled city of Athabasca, where water is plentiful. This begins her quest to save Maiden.
The writing flows very well throughout this TPB, all the gaps of how the inhabitants of Maiden came to live in this desolate apocalyptic world are filled in towards the end. The artwork is very pleasing o the eye and also helps the story flow. It was very easy and enjoyable read.
