What Members Thought

Yay, another distopian YA series. That said, Lu did create an interesting world that she then doesn't explain but instead dangles hints in front of you. My biggest complaint about this book is the characterization of the general population. The proletariat are all good and the upper class are all evil. well except for the star crossed lovers of course.

There were enough hints at the founding of the fascist overlords to interest me in picking up the second book when it comes out.
