I read this book in one sitting it was that good. Young Adult dystopian at its best with a strong heroine, a worthy hero, plenty of adventure and some nice romance. What more is there? June, a rich military prodigy is tasked with capturing the Republic’s most wanted criminal, Day, a boy from the slums who she thinks killed her brother. Day, the figurehead of the yet unformed revolution, opens June’s eyes to government corruption before he is captured and she is forced to rescue him. The series continues with book two, Prodigy, and ends with book three, Champion. Just a terrific, well-plotted series of books.
