Goodreads Description

 What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.
From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

My Review

  • If you’re looking for an adventure, this is the book for you.
  • I like to read two people’s point of view, especially the main character/s. Supporting character/s, not so much because they kind of seem irrelevant, that is in my opinion anyway.
  • Once you start reading this one, it will be so hard to stop – unputdownable, trust me. Been there done that.
  • And if you’re the type who enjoys reading this genre – dystopian, this is definitely a must-read for you.
  • I love how despite all the action going, there is also a hint of romance. I mean who isn’t a fan of romance?
  • Along the way, there is a disease called the Plague which makes will make the story more interesting and is able to catch the reader’s attention.
  • Highly recommended to all.
