All I can think of is all the cheesy electricity puns I should be using in my review. (Highly charged relationships! Electrifying action sequences! Crackling dialogue! Striking world-building! Groan...) Unfortunately, the book was not quite standout enough the be worthy of the lightning metaphor. It was fun, with a strong heroine and a creepy cult antagonist, but quite draggy; I would have liked it more if it had been about a hundred pages shorter.

Also, is it just me, or is this a new YA dystopian cover thing, the girl with her back to readers looking out over a ruined landscape and partially silhouetted against a weird sky. Check out the cover of The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze, I think it might even be the same model!
