Raised in an aristocratic caste, Mae is now a member of the military's most elite and terrifying tier, a soldier with enhanced reflexes and skills. Justin and Mae are assigned to work together to solve a string of ritualistic murders and soon realize that their discoveries have exposed them to terrible danger.

I accidentally walked into a library sale! We had to go to a different library than usual and apparently every Friday in the summer they have a different genre book sale! And it just so happened to be the sci-fi, fantasy, Mystery, romance and YA day!

$5 to fill a paper bag! Of course none of these books were on my TBR!

It wasn‘t the best library sale that I‘ve been to, but I‘m pretty happy with my haul.

I really enjoyed this book. This was my first Richelle Mead read and I loved her writing, plot, and characters. I hope the next book is as good as this one.

I think somewhere in the mess of this book, there was a good story. It was a bit all over the place though and I kept getting lost, not in a good way. I don't know if I'll bother with the next book in the series.

I was at Barnes and Noble yesterday and picked this up. I've never heard of this before so this will be interesting. I'm already intrigued by the summary inside.

I'm loving this book so far! Interesting world and enough unanswered questions about characters I care for to make me want to keep reading...

I really enjoyed this story, despite some of its flaws and an audiobook reader that I wasn't particularly fond of. I can only imagine that had I actually read this book, I would've liked it even more. Super soldiers, cults, a futuristic society which closely monitors and polices religious groups are some of the things you'll encounter with this book. I'll be reading the next one for sure. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ of 5

StephTKO Ooh... Let me know what you think. I loved Vampire Academy and the spin-off series. 4y
AlexandraGriffin @StephTKO I really like it! The audiobook reader is ok, but her voice doesn't fit the story imo, but besides that I really like the story. I think had I actually read it, I would've loved it even more. Feels very different from VA. (I couldn't get into bloodlines, i only read the first hoping for more dimitri and rose) 4y
StephTKO @GriffinAndHerBooks lol, I was not team Dimitri so I really enjoyed Bloodlines. But the story for a little old in the later books. 4y

Things I should be doing: cleaning house & working towards deadlines. What will I be doing: enjoying this book that I was excited to find on sale. I enjoy Richelle Mead's books, especially when I'm looking for good characters & escapism. I've been meaning to read this one for a while.

I remember liking it when it first came out, but I didn't read sequel for some reason. I will read anything by Richelle Mead though. I love her.

Katelyn_fess AMAZING BOOK 4y
