My review: Going into this book I really didn’t know what to expect. I had a little bit of back story but I came in without knowing much and I must admit I was surprised. The book thrusts you into a world without any knowledge of whats going on and you’re forced to figure out what the world is like through the main characters eyes, a stubborn teenage girl. This was executed brilliantly through very detailed explanations of the world which allowed me to really visualize the world like I was seeing it through my eyes which I thought was really cool. There was pain, suffering, and loss throughout the whole book. There was also growth as well. You get to watch a person who doesn’t trust the world and moves through every day struggling to being thrown into situation that turns that life completely upside down and their journey to get to something better.

I liked this book because it allowed me to really become apart of this world. We learned only what the main character learned and made me feel very involved and very excited to see what will happen later in the series because of the massive cliffhanger it left, which I always have a love/hate relationship with. It keeps me very interested but it keeps me itching to know whats going on. This book I feel is for those who like being involved in the book and paying complete attention to a book. It creates a new world which I love. I would recommend this book to mainly young adults and up because there are some very graphic moments in the book and I would give 4 stars. I can’t wait for the rest of the series 🙂
