Review: This book was pretty good. It was more toned down than most dystopian stories are, which at first kind of annoyed me but as the story went on I liked it better. Since this is the first in a series, large part of the book was buildup and introduction but I enjoyed seeing the small ways that this society differed from our own. I liked the crime family dynamic more than I thought I would, it kept things interesting and the feeling of no one being entirely trustworthy added to the plot. All the characters were really well developed and I enjoyed getting to know them all. Anya was a strong character and even though she occasionally did things without thinking them through, I was rooting for her the entire time. I thought Win, Natty and Leo were also very well written and over all really great characters. I am really excited and interested to see where this story goes next.
