The first book in one of my all time favorite series. To me, this rates right up there with the Hunger Games. The action and suspense mixed with a forbidden romance will have you turning the pages as fast as you can. There are twists and turns throughout the story with one surprise after another! I definitely recommend reading this book. Its a fairly easy read with a great story line. I love it so much that I had to go out and buy the series so the library wouldnt get tired of me checking them out all the time.
