Kaida grew up in two worlds--a child in the Manor raised by Sabah before she was granted Citzenship. But the only place she has ever felt like she's belonged is with Cedric and Guin, the boys she grew up with.

When Cedric's involvement in a rebel faction goes wrong, the Commission exiles her and holds Guin hostage. Now, she's on her own for the first time, and searching for the sister who left her behind and a princess who was stolen from the City--and then she stumbles across a face from the past.

Hawke has been an outcast since his Tribe died. When he finds Sabah's sister on the road, he agrees to help her. But as they search the wilds and grow closer, his disdain for her is slowly replaced by a deep attraction for the girl who faces every challenge so bravely.

And as the City's deadline dwindles, and the boy she loves hangs in the balance, Hawke is left to wonder if he is protecting her, or if he the biggest threat she will face.

My Review

I haven't read the first book in the series... This may have hurt me a little, but I still think this was a cool book. This author has a talent for making you feel so deeply for the characters. I've read another book by her, and I must say, she is holding up to the expectations I've had. I'm impressed. This book follows Cedric, Kaida, and Guin. And Hawke. Yeah... 

This is a fascinating story. It's rough, it's gritty, it's heart wrenching, but it feels so real. And I'm torn, because I loved Hawke, but I loved Guin and Cedric too. Yeah, I don't think I can talk about all that. And though it seemed to take forever, among my anticipation and annoyance, for Kaida to figure it out. And yes, there's a good plot behind the romance side. It's a struggle and a race for Kaida to save herself and everyone it seems. 

The writing is very well done. It's fast paced and full of many categories. I really do like the way this author writes. So, with that said, I need to go backwards and read book one, and then I want to see how I feel about some of the characters then. :) 4.5 PAWS !!
