Comments: Did I ever like this book. It was so interesting the journey you take with Lina and Doon is captivating. However the end did not hold to that same standard. I hate reading a dystopian such as this and finding out the reason behind everything is stupid. Now with this one I wouldn't exactly use the word stupid but the end was a major let down, thus I did not pursue the rest of the series. Still a great and clean read for the teen in your life.
