Simply amazing. Words can't express how much I loved this book. I devoured it in a day and a half. The detail Strong puts into her story and each character is incredible and definitely paints the picture. I can't wait until I purchase the second in the series.

Words cannot describe how surprised I am that a book I stole from a shelf at school could keep my heart racing until the very end. Strong's characters were so believable, it was like they were real people. This isn't just any fairy realm story, it's a place where dystopia and utopia come in turns, sending the reader into a constant tailspin.

I've been meaning to review this book for quite some time-- finally got to it.
What can I say? It's fantasy-- which isn't my cup of tea

I like how she was just kidnapped by some strangers and brought into the other world. I LOVE the scene where Rhea was in love with the person who she hate so much in the beginning... and then she just felt in love with this guy. so romantic!!! ^.^ the choice was hard at the end, but Rhea made her choice. if I was in her situation, I will probably make the same choice as her.
