What do you do when the victory you’ve been fighting for is doomed to break your heart? Rogue bellators Eva Marteinn and Ari Westergaard have escaped the restrictive world of the Commonwealth, and they would like nothing more than to leave it behind forever. But Eva is the formidable weapon the Commonwealth wants—and they’ll stop at nothing to get her back. For years, Ari has seen Eva as his temptation and his secret, his virtue and his sin. Now that they’re finally free, he wants what he’s been craving—to start a new life…with her. But Eva is keeping a devastating secret of her own: the very victory against the Commonwealth the two of them have been fighting for is doomed to break their hearts. She faces an impossible decision—to be the face of the revolution she’s dedicated her life to and abandon the boy she loves…or to sacrifice everything she’s fought for to stand by his side.

Eva and Ari are out of reach of their enemies... they think. They've escaped their small world only find the dangers that lurked there for them haven't disappeared on the outside. The commonwealth wants to destroy their resistance and will use any methods to do it. But more than that, they want Eva because she's not just a girl. She's a weapon. One whose new role may prevent her from what she truly wants. A new life with Ari by her side.
What I loved: Is everything a good answer? This book is fantastic. It's written in this gorgeous lyrical way that makes for brilliant storytelling. It's been a long time since I read a book that was written so well. The characters are absolutely fantastic. Ari is loyal and strong, just what Eva needs even when others are pulling her in different directions.
There are a million twists and turns that keep the story moving from point to point at a rapid pace without ever letting the reader get lost. It's truly wonderful storytelling.
What I didn't like: That I have to wait for the next book.
Final Verdict: A wonderfully written tale of love and heartbreak set in a fascinating dystopian world that's impossible to look away from.
