Any readers that enjoyed dystopian novels like; Hunger Games, Divergent, and Delirium, will enjoy this novel as well. I was very interested in the love triangles which in the novel and wanted to know more about Zane and Cal and what everyone’s true intentions where within the story. This novel was a bit of a slow read and took me a little long then a novel usually takes me. I did find myself skimming some parts, but not too much, I was just very eager to see what was going to happen next. I am very excited that this novel is Book one of a series and I ca not wait for book two!!
