“Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything’s possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time.”


What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

My Experiences

Honest. I HATED this book. But I kept on reading and reading and reading. Sooner or later I ended up at the end of the final book. Okay. Maybe I’m over exaggerating. It wasn’t that bad. But it wasn’t like Harry Potter or something. I was into Dystopian after reading the Divergent series, and my brother recommended this. But I did read this after an amazing finish of Brandon Sanderson 1st Mistborn Trilogy (these posts will be coming soon. I promise.) So to speak, I had high expectations. 

Anyway, for the most part it was awesome. 

Read it for yourself and tell me what you think. Don’t always let me cloud your judgement.


“He is beauty, inside and out.
He is the silver lining in a world of darkness.
He is my light.”

“What a joke! Poor little rich girl’s fallen in love with the Republic’s most famous criminal.”

“Forever and ever, kid, until you’re sick and tired of seeing me.”

“If you want to rebel, rebel from inside the system.That’s much more powerful than rebelling outside the system.”

“You’re brilliant,”he says.”But you’re a fool to stay with someone like me.”
I close my eyes at the touch of his hand.”Then we are both fools.”
