Citizens who report to work on time, obey the Overlord’s laws, and stay off the Synbot’s radar, live long lives. Long, dull, monotonous lives.
It’s not a bad plan for someone with a hidden, emotion-based ability to trigger earthquakes. In a world pitted against her, sixteen-year-old Rena Moon strives for a life beyond working herself to death at the factory. Seeing an alternative, she risks selling relics from the forbidden lands at Market. It becomes the worst decision she ever made. Someone kidnaps her best friend in exchange for the one thing that would end her oppression.
Driven by loyalty, Rena and seventeen-year-old Nevan Jelani, soulful composer, green thumb extraordinaire, and the secret love of her life, plot to rescue her friend and reclaim her salvage. Still, the thought lingers whether Nevan is a true hero or another thief waiting for his chance at her loot. Events spin wildly, deepening Rena’s suspicions and pushing her limit of control. With more than her chance for freedom at stake, she must decide if she’s willing to kill to protect what’s precious to her. For once, the Overlord isn’t holding all the power, but can Rena live with being reduced to what she’s trying so hard to escape?

Rena and her best friend are two very different people, even though Blaze goes along with Rena for the most part. Rena is a rebel looking to get away from the Overlord and her boring life; Blaze wants to have fun but be safe. When they sell relics from the forbidden lands, Blaze is kidnapped, putting everything at risk. Along with Nevan, her secret crush, Rena goes to rescue Blaze, throwing herself in dangers way, and learning things about herself she never knew.
I was quite taken with this book, the story was so interesting. I was taken into a land so foreign to me, and better yet, the star of the story has powers…I want powers too!! All kidding aside, this is a well written, nicely thought out story that held my attention throughout the book. I have to say my imagination worked well, and I could really see that which was being described so beautifully. I do recommend this book, and want to thank the author for the chance to read it.
