This story is mercilessly twisted and wonderfully magical. Taking you to a world torn between love and hate and strikingly like our own at its core. Whether or not you're a fan of Veronica Roth’s Divergent series, you will find something incredibly lovable about this book. I read this as a 7th grader and even now as a 10th grader in highschool I still find it captivating. This book is perfect for anyone looking to dive into a YA fantasy. Whether or not you're in middle school or high school, the story will have something for you.
When the prophecy of his fate is broadcast to the universe Akos and his brother are captured and taken by the Shotet where they are enslaved by the Shotet leader who himself wants to overcome his own fated future. When Akos is forced to serve Cyra, the Shotet leader's sister and weapon, he is surprised by what he discovers about this monster. Wrestling with unexpected gifts and unavoidable fates two enemies find themselves working together to overcome the pain that they and their planet must face.
