After witnessing her brother’s brutal murder, she’s spent the better part of the last decade in self-imposed silence, hell-bent on taking his secret to the grave. Even if that means living the rest of her life confined in a remote government compound.
But when she is kidnapped from that compound, her silence becomes a liability. Annabel Haier, the ruthless dictator of a fragile government, will stop at nothing to see Johanna back in her clutches and sacrificed to a time-altering Device. If Johanna is to survive, she must learn to trust people she has never met and share the secrets she never meant to share. And if she is to discover her place in the world, she must come to terms with her own mortality – a thing that has the power to save, or condemn her broken world.
Some books you can put down and pick up and read a paragraph here and a chapter there. Other books you have to stay up until 3 A.M. reading, take with you to the bank for you to read as you wait, order pizza so you won’t have to cook, take with you on every bathroom break, and then stay up AGAIN that night, red-eyed from sleeplessness, because you just can’t put it down.
This was that book. From the very first page I was hooked. The language was unique and beautiful, stark yet descriptive. I feel like I WAS Hanna, I felt for her so much. What she went through was tremendous and instantly bonded me to her. She’s one of my favorite heroes I’ve read about in a long time. Her voice was my favorite part of the story, and was more powerful than most because she didn’t speak very often.
Even though the plot was gripping and exciting, it’s the romance where the real tension lies. I love a good romance, and this book really delivers.
I highly recommend this book!
