Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Summary: Since witnessing her parents’ murders at the age of eleven, Phoenix’s only purpose in life has been to uphold her mother’s dying words- to be strong and survive. But surviving outside of The Walls- outside of The Sanctuary- is more like a drawn-out death sentence. A cruel and ruthless city, Tartarus is run by the Tribes whose motto is simple, “Join or die.”
Refusing to join and determined to live, Phoenix fights to survive in this savage world. But who can she trust, when no one can be trusted? Not even herself.
Favourite Quote: “At first I thought we were too late, that I would never get to meet the girl who had so quickly stolen my heart, but then you woke up.”
I received this book for an honest review from the publisher: Of Tomes.
So, this book is totally flawless.
- Amazing storyline. Check.
- Set in a Dystopian World. Check.
- Perfect character development. Check.
- Triven. Check.
- Realistic Setting. Check.
- Stunning New Cover. Check.
- A Freaking Map. Check.
- Tribe Info. Check.
- Great Pace. Check.
Not only does it have these things, but the character development for ALL characters was great, and you find yourself believing that these characters might as well be sat in front of you right now.
The beautiful Tribe Info (I assume, from the diary mentioned?) at the start really allows you to have an idea of the setting before you even start.
TRIVEN. The best guy ever. My God, does he sound amazing. Why isn’t he real? Okay, so he is like if you put all your favourite guys into one, then scrapped that idea, because Triven was there instead. Kind, Caring, Understanding. Need I say more?
To be truly honest, I feel like I did need more Arden, seeing as he kinda dropped off after a while. Oh, and Maddox. What is going on with that guy? Bipolar. But great. Ish.
The pace of the book was perfect, fast enough for me to be hooked, but slow enough for me to take in the entire story.
One final thing, WHAT WAS THE ENDING? The next book comes out who knows when, and I’m sat here dying of emotions. Give me the next book. NOW. Oh, and the sneak peek at the end? Doesn’t help right now.
