My Review


I just received this book yesterday from Amazon and I finished it in less than a day. It was packed with action, which I love, a little bit of mystery and a twist of romance. I LOVE IT!!

This book was so addicting, I couldn't put it down and I couldn't get to sleep without reading another word, which then led me to sleep at around 2am. The action in here was so...realistic, I just wanted to join all of the fights and shout "YEAH! GO JENNA, YOU BAD-ASS GIRL!!"

Jenna Strong was prisoned for murdering her parents at the aged of 15. Or so everyone thought. Jenna was the sort of character that I loved straight away from reading the first sentence. She's bad-ass, brave, the sort of girl who could kick your ass in under 10 seconds, or maybe even 5. I love her. She doesn't whine, and she wasn't weak and she wasn't all "oh I'm good at fighting, so I'll show off". Jenna was just....Jenna. Everyone should know by now that I LOVE a bad-ass main character who is a girl, and I have to say, Jenna is one of them.

ACID is the most brutal police force ever created--who also rules the country which used to be called the United Kingdom--of course, everybody knows I love Police officers and all of that, but ACID wasn't even like police officers at all, they were like...soldiers...very cruel soldiers. You wouldn't want to mess with them. Emma then tells us about how ACID rules the whole of the IRB, and how it was split into three parts. Outer, Middle, and Upper. It was like, from the poor to the rich.

The world that Emma created was absolutely amazing! She created a world that was a whole level above my imagination, and believe me when I say I have a pretty wide imagination. I love how she created such a cruel world that I was so addicted to. I couldn't stop turning the pages and I just couldn't put the book down.

There are also other characters in here too, and they were all completely amazingly created. Like Jon and Mel, they are LifePartnered. I love them both, they were protective and was really likeable.

Overall, I COMPLETELY LOVE THIS BOOK!! It'd been a while since I've read a book that I completely love so much, and this book had just made my day. So amazing!

For anyone that loves an action-packed mixed with mystery and mixed with a good romance, YOU NEED TO PICK UP THIS BOOK NOW!! IF YOU DON'T, I WILL SEND JENNA AFTER YOU!! Lol!
