Emma only wants to make a new life for herself when she finds herself trapped with a hulking nightmare. I warmed to her character quickly, though at times I feel like she lost her inner fire. Her new companion, a giant teenage boy she nick-names Green Eyes, appears psychotic one moment and calm and sensitive the next.
The development of the pair’s friendship is beautifully crafted as the story progresses. Despite their extreme differences, they resolve to aid each-other in their quest for freedom. There is no shortage of action, gore, or surprises. This story felt like a whirlwind with its fast pace and demonstrated exactly why you should never judge a book by its cover.
I would easily rate this 5 stars.
Recommended for lovers of Sci-Fi, Thrillers, and Fantasy.
