So now, Ria must forgo her selfish desires to compartmentalize her life, but what's she to do when she can't save everyone she wants to? One girl may not be capable of taking down an empire. Good thing Ria's got help.


Review

This is a continuation in Alisha Costanzo's Broken World series and it is just a great as the first two. Alisha makes sure to catch readers up without making them feel bogged down with details from the first.

I felt like I got more of an understanding of the characters in this one. The first in the series was really an introduction and their characters really took off in this one. 

Definitely a lot of action going on that will have readers flipping pages furiously. 

I liked how universal this novel was. It is a great theme and setting and manages to appeal to both adults and young adults. 

There were many surprises and the way that Alisha Costanzo was able to keep the pacing just right really helps everything flow naturally. 

Get ready to be immersed in the world and captivated by the characters she has created.
