This was one of those books that once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down, it was like it was shouting at me to come back and read it every time I did. This meant that I managed to read the book within one weekend. I even took it with me to the cinema and read some of it while my son watched Trolls, I don’t think I was missing much.
The story is based in a time where girls are no longer being born and the looks at the effects that this has on society and follows a group of women and men, the main character being Zoey, a young girl who escaped from a secure government unit in the first book and then went back to free some of her friends.
In this book they are tracking down the ‘Fae Trade’ a Fair/Carnival of sorts which sells women to men who are willing to fight to the death for them.
A member of the group gets captured, they free her and all of the other prisoners in what can only be described as a dramatic scene. On the way they meet various people, some good, some bad and some just pure evil.
It finished on a cliff hanger when a mysterious person comes to see the group and tells Zoey that she is the ‘key stone’, what this means and what will happen will be revealed I guess in the next book, which I have pre-ordered and will be writing about once I have read it, in March Next Year.
I loved reading this book, I like the characters and the idea which it is based on and the effects that not having women being born has on society.
This is the second book in the trilogy and I can’t wait for the next one to be released. I bought it from amazon and read it on my kindle.
