This was great, incredibly interesting, dark and scary mystery/crime - I don't even know what genre I would better place it! Somehow at the beginning I missed the point this is a YA and was surprised...The suspense gets built very fast, not explored fully, I mean, the characters could have more depth and developed - the story moves on very fast. I was hoping to get to know what happens and I could not guess ..., I was hoping for Charlotte to be a little bit more sensible, hahaha!
But it was UNIQUE, I have not read anything on this topic before. It also draws the sense how world, one country may be controlled and is a piece of spider's web. How sects work underneath and how influential they are for the rest of the society and one may never know...plus Charlotte wants to find the truth about her mum's disappearance...which makes it so complex. All the findings bring so many loose ends and creates a complex truth at the end.

Four stars because main character at around mid-of the book start to become so annoying at times, throwing herself at the danger, falling right into the trap and aiming for it. I mean, if she knew the family has stolen her belongings and will do everything to kill her if they got a chance - why would you drag yourself there?
Why would you deny any help and crush to the 1st guy you have if you know he is the one you want to be with and LIKE to be with..?
What was it about going for the one who took you away without even asking your opinion, without letting you to express yourself???
These were the faulty parts why I was getting angry at Charlotte and I am looking forward for the next books to seek the explanation I was hoping for, but obviously this is trilogy...and first book can't solve it all, can it? ( )
