Read 2 times. Last read March 8, 2016 to March 9, 2016.

Brutal and gorgeous.

In an empire of harsh, martial law, a soldier is no freer than a slave, and both are disposable.

This YA fantasy is lush and epic, with an intense plot, disturbing twists, and strong characters.

The most upsetting part about reading a debut novel is that after I adore it, I can't run out and get my hands on other books by the author. . . yet.
