Review By NerdGirlVamp:
*I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book from the publishers*
This is the third book by this author that I have had the opportunity to read and whilst they have all been very different they all have one thing in common, they are amazing.
This is not your typical YA fantasy. It takes you in a direction that I could never have anticipated blending a harsh reality with a mix of beautiful, yet frightening imagination.
The characters are fresh and unique, as is the story, and the pages practically turn themselves as the story goes on. Definitely one to add to your collection!

chest. Her eyes stretched wide in horror, her lips twisted in a final scream as
she pushed me to safety.

speed of light. My father lowered the gun, grabbed my mother’s wrist and
checked for a pulse. A satisfied smile crept across his lips as he dropped her

raised the weapon, aimed it at my forehead, and the shadows came for me again….
