Seiren's life has never been easy, but it's about to get a lot harder than she ever expected. Being hunted by the Ereshkigal she starts to learn things about herself that she never knew. All she knew her life consisted of was that her father was a dead beat, her mother was dead, and she had to support her father who did nothing to help support her. Working any odd job she could find she went through her life just trying to get by and stay out of the way of the Haydens.

As Seiren runs to save her

Desolate City is more than just a book. The descriptions of everything were extremely vivid. Racquel Jones did an amazing job of pulling me in and capturing my interest in this book. I felt like Seiren, never knowing who to trust. I cannot wait for the next book to come out!!!!!!!!! Oh and fyi Echo is now in my top ten book boyfriends hehehe..

This book is no longer valid. Please don't buy it. I'm no longer working on this series.

I'll start off by saying that this book is a grammatical mess. There are gaps in the plot, one dimensional characters, words being used in the wrong context, typos, exclamation points on literally every page and just - it was too much for a 238 page book.

I wanted to like this book soooo much. But sadly, I didn't like it very much at all. This book started off promising. High school setting, the characters seemed interesting enough, albeit I was only about five pages in. But it
I enjoyed the book and premise but it definitely needed more polish.
