Review: This is a book I have been meaning to read for a while and I have mixed feelings about it. I liked the world building but I wish there had been a little bit more background about how things came to be this way.  The plot was not quite as exciting and surprising as i expected it to be. I somewhat knew how things were going to end up and wish there had been a little bit more to the story. This book is less than two hundred pages so not a whole lot happens since a good protion of that is world building and introduction of the characters. I thought Nora, Micah and Winter were all pretty good characters. Although, since it switches between all three of their perpectives we don't really get very much time with any of them. I did like this book i just had  few problems with it. I am curious enough that I will read the sequel at some point.
