's review

it was amazing

BRILLIANT. I consider myself an avid reader of quite a few genres so it's easy for me to get cynical about storylines, originality and (if I make it far enough) the ending. A storyline dealing with, at first glance, such a hot topic as gender expectations is extraordinarily risky but I'm thrilled and proud to say that the author exceeded my expectations by not only rising to the challenge but soaring over it. From the first word to the final word I was gripped. This is an intelligent book that I will happily reread.
Violet Bates, being a criminal with a hot temper isn't a character you immediately believe good things are going to happen for, even in Matrus, a world dominated by women. This is refreshing as it allows you freedom to get to know the character organically, then root for her success because you feel as though you know her personally. There is a touch of romance, but it's real, raw, and not pushed at all. The entire storyline is just incredible with so much mystery, twists, and turns. I found my cynical side completely curbed with this book as I haven't read anything as timeless, yet culturally relevant before. I'll leave this review with four words...

Wait until the end....
