The world is at peace, said the Utterances. And really, if the odd princess has a hard day, is that too much to ask?

Greta is a duchess and crown princess—and a hostage to peace. This is how the game is played: if you want to rule, you must give one of your children as a hostage. Go to war and your hostage dies.

Greta will be free if she can survive until her eighteenth birthday. Until then she lives in the Precepture school with the daughters and sons of the world’s leaders. Like them, she is taught to obey the machines that control their lives. Like them, she is prepared to die with dignity, if she must. But everything changes when a new hostage arrives. Elián is a boy who refuses to play by the rules, a boy who defies everything Greta has ever been taught. And he opens Greta’s eyes to the brutality of the system they live under—and to her own power.

As Greta and Elián watch their nations tip closer to war, Greta becomes a target in a new kind of game. A game that will end up killing them both—unless she can find a way to break all the rules.

I read this one awhile back. I will wait until more people have read it before I comment too much. I remember liking it.

I'm still currently reading Firstlife by Gena Showalter but I am planning to take this with me to Disney for when we have down time. I am excited to read this. I'm just excited to be reading again lol

I’m going to take this out on the library audiobook site as soon as the 1st hits. I’ll get it done in like 2-3 days. I’m excited. I’ve been wanting to read it forever. I ran out of borrows this month lol

I won't lie this book is amazing. Sucked me in immediately. I'm still finishing the book honestly but it's been one heck of a ride already.

Got my digital credits for the month at the library on hoopla today so I’ll listen to it this week. I can’t wait. Hope everyone had a good new year!

It's been a week already. Mostly tired.

I finally read this. I finished it last week. I liked it but not nearly as much as I thought I was going to. I thought it was going to have more action. Idk maybe it just wasn’t anything like what I had expected and that’s why I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I should have. I’ll still read the next one to see what happens next.
