Summary:

Bold, brutal and beautiful, this is a must-read with the glitter and romance of The Selection and the thrilling action and intrigue of Red Queen.

In a world where women have no rights, sisters Serina and Nomi face two very different fates: one in the palace, the other on an island prison where women must fight to survive.

Serina has spent her whole life preparing to become a Grace – selected to stand by the heir to the throne as a shining example of the perfect woman.

But her headstrong and rebellious younger sister has a dangerous secret, and one wrong move could cost both sisters everything.

Can Serina fight? And will Nomi win?

Review:

I got this book in the June FairyLoot box, it was my first book box and I have to say that it was such a fun box! I also got the July box and I really need to be careful now and not throw away all my money by buying all those freaking amazing book boxes! Those special editions are EVERYTHING.

About the book now, I actually really enjoyed this book. Lately I’ve been more careful reading books like this, because there are too many books that are all just the same book with a different cover. This one was able to really surprise me at some very crucial points and although the ending wasn’t 100% unexpected, this book kept me pretty entertained throughout the entire story.

We meet two sisters they both are the narrator every other chapter, which also keeps this book very interesting at all times. Nomi is more the fireworks, rebel and “doing before thinking” kind of girl. Serina is the pretty one, she’s been trained to be a pretty, well behaving girl for all her life and she plays that roll a little bit too well. What I like the most about this book is the character development. It’s incredible how hard those two girls change without it feeling fake and wrong. In the beginning I loved Nomi and wasn’t the biggest fan of Serina. But that changed and now I’m a Serina fan through and through. I don’t want to spoil anything but Serina gets quite bad ass. 

I’m not quite sure what was going on with the romance parts…
To me these parts felt more like the author had the idea of a romance in the beginning of the book, then completely forgot to implement that in to the story and once in a while remembered that she wanted to have some romance and then just decided that the next scene was going to be a kissing scene.

It wasn’t that bad, but it just was too random at times and it wasn’t that important or relevant in this particular story.

Overall this was a great book and I just can’t wait to get my hands on the next one in this series, because I really want to know what’s going to happen next!
