I was asked to read this book by the Author. This is her first book. I was not sure what I would find in this book. I found the writing smooth. I was instantly excited by Sadie. I love her sharp tongue and that she did not just give in what was happening to her. The fighter in her just took over. Living most of her life trapped behind wall that were supposed to protect her from the monsters outside the walls. A world taken over by the creatures of the dark side. A world that was no longer in the hands of Humankind. I have to say that I love the way the world was put together. The race to see who will claim the throne and there is no doubt that blood will run freely. This lays a good foundation of this story and the world it takes place in. Can’t wait to see what comes of the rest of this wonderful cast of characters. I can’t wait for a second book and maybe more if we are lucky.
