A wonderful read that allows the characters to develop and understand the cost of their actions. Fun and exciting.

I'm not really sure why I liked it, but I did. I didn't like Ileni very much, I guess because she was kind of naive, and I think the book took too long for that one mystery that they didn't even solve. Still a good read though. :-)

Disclaimer: This book is a dystopian vaguely veiled in the pretty prom dress that is fantasy. Now don't get me wrong, I really liked this book. Clearly outlined in my Goodreads "read" list is a long history of loving both fantasy and dystopian, so this is no surprise. I was, however, surprised that the description of this book did not meet my expectations (but again, not in a bad way). This book was nice in that it slowly enveloped you in the story as well as the atmosphere of the fantasy setting. I look forward to read future installments and hope that the world building expands out of the dark cave (literally, the majority of this novel takes place in a dark cave). Ileni, our main heroine, is both likable and realistic with just enough sass and toughness. The male lead is aloof in a way that you are drawn to him (but also disconnected enough that the romantic tension can continue into future books).

Final recommendations: lovers of fantasy, lovers of dystopian, strained romance, sassy girls, "magic"
