The Dociles by Valerie Puri
Walls are meant to keep the monsters out…
Deep in the forest, there is a wall where no wall should be. Behind it live the people of the Commune, the last remnant of humankind.
Jennie Caraway has lived behind the wall her entire life, certain that it protects her and her brother from the lemerons, ravenous undead monsters whose only desire is to kill – and feed.
Jennie’s peaceful existence is shattered when she uncovers a secret organization whose purpose threatens to destroy not only Jennie but her entire world. The Order has a deadly mission, and they will stop at nothing to see it completed.
Jennie and those closest to her must expose the evil truth before they are killed – or worse.

My Thoughts on The Dociles:
How would you feel/react if you suddenly found out if everything you believed was a lie? This is exactly what happened one seemingly ordinary day to Jennie.
I can not imagine living behind a wall in a commune. It sounds so dark and depressing! I need fresh air and sunlight, not dark dungeon type atmosphere.
This book grips you from page 1. The questions that come to mind immediately are: Who are the elders REALLY? Why are they in the commune? Where do the missing people really go?
I love books that you can get lost in, and this is definitely one of them. I can’t wait for the other 2 in the series.
Valerie Puri has always had a lifelong interest in all forms of artistic expression. She has tried her hand at many things, yet she always found her way back to reading and writing. With inspiration everywhere, she finally put pen to paper (or rather, fingers to keyboard) with the intent of publishing her stories.
Writing has always come naturally to Valerie, and for a time she even worked as a technical writer. She continues to hone her skills by having at least one writing project in the works at any given time. Her true passion lies in the freedom that comes with writing the stories that pour from her imagination and real-life inspiration.
Valerie believes that the experiences we have in life are just stories waiting to be written.
