Right from the start, the story grabs you by the heart and doesn't let go.

What happens when the world we know is shaken to its core? What happens when we push people too far? They fight back for all their worth. They avenge those that were unjustly taken. They try to resist the darkness of revenge that is creeping into their soul like a thief in the night...but how long they can hold out, remains to be seen. Seriously, there is SO MUCH TO LOVE here, and it's just the beginning! Oh and I don't blame Fitz for leaning towards the "dark side", after all...his father, and that whole situation with his aunt, is a bit much for anyone to take.

The story is well written, the action will keep you on the edge of your seat, but the heart at the center of it all binds it together into SUCH A GREAT READ.
