    Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered. This was worse. Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland - known as The Death Shop - are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild - a savage - and her only hope of staying alive.

    Story

    I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book. I liked the separate chapters with each main characters thoughts and point of view. The characters themselves grew throughout the story with each passing trial and new situation. My only complaint was the ending I felt like it was rushed and lacked explanation. I sincerely hope there is a second book to make up for the ending in this one.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Story

    Being an avid reader you get the feeling many story lines follow the same sort of equation...but this story took me by surprise. In fact nothing happened the way I was expecting and I quickly found myself cheering on the characters and biting my nails in anxious excitement. Although it skated over some moments I felt could have been more emotionally dramatic the characters and story could not have been better. I am very impressed and will certainly recommend this book to others.

    A young reporter on assignment from the San Francisco Observer... An older woman welcoming him into her magnificent family home that he has been sent to write about and that she must sell with some urgency... A chance encounter between two unlikely people... An idyllic night - shattered by horrific unimaginable violence, the young man inexplicably attacked - bitten - by a beast he cannot see in the rural darkness....

    Story

    The only thing this book lacked was a climatic point. A good solid beginning, middle and end. The book while not terrible just kinda flowed to the end. There were definite great action moments but nothing that really felt like a climax. I was overall disappointed at the end.
