It was wonderful to see something truly original in dystopian than the usual books that flood the YA market. I see books all the time that claim to be the latest Hunger Games, but this book truly is similar without copying plot or mimicking characters. The world is just as dark, the stakes just as high, and the action just as griping.
My favorite part of the book is the way the two characters, Day and June, are on opposite sides and have to play this cat-and-mouse game with each other while slowly falling in love. The author gives them very good reasons for distrusting one another, but give enough incentive to make readers breathlessly await the moment the two of them will end up together.
This book is in the point of view of the hunter (June) and the hunted (Day) so you’re seeing the story from both the controlling evil government and the rebel group, which is something I haven’t seen often since most dystopians, like The Hunger Games or Divergent, only tell the story of the rebels.
Excellent world building, fast pace, filled with action that moves the plot along, a romance between people from opposing sides…Loved this book!
Out of five stars: five!
