Dual POV Dystopian Beauty and the Beast meets Taming of the Shrew

Moves along well, with great twists, turns and surprises. I loved it, and I am thrilled it's just the first book in a planned trilogy. If you haven't read this one, it's a WORTHY read. So powerfully written!

A powerful, gripping, and unflinchingly honest look at a tough topic

A powerful and gripping story. A Must Read. You'll never be the same after reading this novel. This deserves way more than 5/5 stars. It's so much more than that. Wow.

Murder Mystery Blurring the lines between Contemporary and Paranormal

I can't say enough good things about this book. It's a fantastic and worthy debut by Hathaway. I'm thrilled to know there's more coming from this story, and I can't wait for the next book!! Delicious!

2nd Book Better than the First! Amazing!

These are not your everyday characters, and this is not your everyday story. And, where Lyga takes these two is as beautiful and terrible as a phoenix rising from the ashes once again. This was a kick ass read.

Book 2 of the Duology. A great bookend to Book 1: THE MOCKINGBIRDS

A brilliant read. Daisy Whitney is a Rockstar, and I can't wait to read her next book, already in the process of publication.
