I didn't like this as much as the author's Body Finder series, but it was okay. It's about a girl living in an oppressive future society governed by an evil queen with magical powers. So sort of a post-apocalyptic fantasy mashup. The girl has the ability to understand all languages, which she has to hide because people are not supposed to know/speak the language of any class above them. This is punishable by death. Then she meets a boy (of course), and he turns her world upside down, pledges his eternal love and protection, blah blah blah. I like some parts of this - good minor character development, nice fight scenes. But the main characters are kind of lame and the story wrapped up way too neatly for me.
