I had to give this book five stars for the following reasons:
1. The book had me crying mere pages in. I was a sucker for the protagonist and she held my heart so early in the book it kind of shocked me.
2. The world this author built was incredible, unlike anything else I've read... maybe ever. Yes, I still have many questions and an incomplete picture of the world, but Meadows managed to create something wholly different from any other books in this genre.
3. Never have I bought the sequel to a book so early in my reading. I think I was about 15% in and had to buy it.
I won't get into a summary - many others will and have done that. I will just say that the book was a breath of fresh air... medival, dystopian, utopian, mythological, and romance all in one. I for one can't wait to see what happens next.
