I stumbled across Anna's blog shortly before her release and was immediately captivated by the cover and sound of her novel. It was different, fascinating, and well, I knew I had to read it! And after getting my hands on it, I was even more blown away by how awesome it was! Witnessing the world in a completely different state, with some technology and "procedures" that are incredibly horrific, as well as interesting, left me sitting up to the early morning hours because I had to finish just one more chapter. Aeva's a strong character, inside and out, and I appreciated the way that she looked at the world. The fact that she'd been an athlete in a brutal game was a cool twist, and suited her well. And what she's thrown into? It's just nuts. And definitely leaves you wanting more. I'm definitely trying to not be impatient for the next book, because I know I'll be reading it as soon as I can!
