“Love is a perilous dance too, you see. And if we stop dancing, we'll die.
Don't ever stop dancing.”

This book was very well written and I really began to enjoy and get into the book at about the half way point. This is not your typical world and some world-building needed to take place in order to move on. The world continues to remain much of a mystery even after finishing the book. This maybe because the narrator, Lia Weaver, has never been informed about anything outside of her small little village.

This book reminded me of the movie, M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village" . Iceliss is a small village that is centered around the mayor's house and is sparely populated around the edges. The citizens of the community live in fear of the Watchers. Monsters whom live within the forest and can be spotted with their ominous glowing red eyes. Usually by the time you see them it's too late. There are cities outside of the village but no one travels there. When her family finds an injured outsider, a Farther named Gabe, they risk repercussions for harboring an him. Over time he and Lia develop a trusting friendship that evolves into a romance. (view spoiler) I feel good about their relationship and can't wait to see more of it in "Thorns".

I can't wait for "Thorns"! I think a lot of the groundwork has been laid and now things can start to get really good. We were kind of left with a cliffhanger at the end of the book and I WANT MORE!!

Rating Clarification: 4.25
