"In the dystopian genre, this can be a difficult line to walk, but Stelling does it masterfully." "[The] writing in this book is beautiful." — Steph Huddleston, The Independent Book Review

This story is about a love triangle involving Harmony, Orion and his brother Sayd and all of the events took place over the course of the last 3 days of December.

I found this new author to be intriguing and wistful. I found it difficult to put the book down and can’t wait for more titles from this author. Anyone looking for a good read in this genre will find this book entertaining and fun! I strongly suggest this as a good weekend read for all ages.
