This was such a unique read. It is very different from any of the other dystopian reads I have enjoyed. First off, flies. Exactly. Once you know what I cam talking about you will know why I couldn't stop reading because you will be the same.

The characters are brilliant. They have great personalities and really fill out a variety in the interaction. I loved the main character. She is strong, persistent and willing to take chances, throughout er journey. I found her interesting and full of spunk.

The story itself was really easy to get into. You had moments that left you guessing, wondering what was happening and what would happen next. You also had a lot of depth to really make it a read that you just had to continue.

Overall, I think this is a great book to check out, if you are into dystopian reads. It is fantastic, fun and really different.

This has to be one of the strangest books I’ve read in a long time. Who knew files could be heroes. This is Ms. Gill’s first book, but she has two more in this series that will be released this year. I will be waiting in line.

For a first time author, I was impressed by how well-written the story was. Her writing was magical and fanciful, light and dark. Even though I loathe the overuse of metaphors, they fit right in, adding an element to the writing that would’ve been missing otherwise. Ms. Gill’s description of everything around the characters helped draw me into the story. I fell in love with Iolani and her dogged determination to save her cousin Eleanor and her mare Mango. Ms. Gill did a masterful job in developing Lani’s magical connection with the flies. How wonderful.

My only point of contention, I just don’t see how men with green lanterns stealing people’s memories would not have been noticed. But the story is so well-crafted that I really didn’t care. If you’re tired of the same boring plot lines and you’re thirsting for something new and different, then you need to read this story. This book will definitely be one of my favorites for 2016. I give it 5 feathers and I can’t wait to read the next story in the series. ( )
