Summary from Goodreads:

The earth’s core overheats. The sovereign leader vanishes. A young girl is the survivors’ only hope …

What little land is habitable is patrolled by cutthroat gangs of escaped subversives, but that’s not the greatest threat facing sixteen-year-old Derry Connelly, her brother Owen, and a ragged band of Preppers holed up in a bunker in the Sawtooth Mountains. Mysterious hoverships operated by clones are targeting adolescents for extraction.

Owen, is one of the first to disappear. To save him, Derry must strike a deal with the murderous subversives, and risk a daring raid to infiltrate the heart of the extraction operation.

But will the rookie leader falter when forced to choose between her brother and a clone who ignites something inside her she didn’t know was possible?

My Review:

Sixteen-year-old Derry Connelly, her brother Owen, her Dad and a few other people all live in together in an underground bunker in separate rooms. They don’t go out much in the daytime because they are afraid that the Sweepers will get them and take them away for cloning.

Derry’s brother Owen is one of the first to be taken by the Sweepers. Derry will do what she must to save her brother even if it means making deals with some rough characters. She will have to trust people that she doesn’t know or is not sure how truthful they are. She always has her guard up hoping no one will stab her in the back. But she really doesn’t have much choice in the matter if she wants to get her brother back alive. And to get him back alive she has be quick about it. They need to get there, get in and out in a matter of minutes or they all may end up dead or cloned.

But Derry has one friend that she can truly trust and that is her old dog Tucker. Tucker is the most loyal dog around. He stays right beside Derry warning her of any danger that may be in the area. Tucker loves Derry so much that he will put himself in danger to save her.
Derry and her friends have a long journey ahead of them to save her brother and they just may lose their life in the process. They have a lot of battles to fight and deaths to face as they travel down that long road to save her brother and maybe others too. Derry finds out that she has one good friend at least a mountain man, Big Ed and a few others as well. Derry finds herself as the leader of their small group of friends out to help her in her fight against the Sweeper.

Immurement will keep you on your toes wanting to know what is going to happen next. Who is going to make it and who will fall by the wayside? I loved following along with Derry and her friends and getting to know her and all the other characters and finding out who was who and who you could trust and who you couldn’t.

I loved the hoover crafts and how they would come looking and searching for someone to extract. I also loved finding out about a little bit about what happen to the Earth and all the people and about what the Sweepers are trying to do. I can’t wait for the next book in the Undergrounders to see how the Sweepers deal with Derry and her friends. I want to know more about Derry and her lifer as a Undergrounder.
