A fantastically written story and without doubt will keep the reader gripped – not wanting to put this one down!
The story is encapsulating and the style the writer maintains displays great storytelling throughout the tale.
A wonderful scattering of sensitivities and romance from the softest thoughts to strong adventures to save mankind.
The futuristic setting is mysterious and Lorde develops the story of the 13 year old girl with superb detail and great flow.
A super start to a new series with well-rounded characters on a mission to thwart the dark in this dystopian fantasy.
