In the year 2052, it's not love but hate that unites the world. Humanity is unified against the Inborns, an extraterrestrial species with godlike intelligence and abilities, whose arrival on Earth caused an environmental and biological crisis. Enslaved and despised even by her own Inbornkind, 18-year-old Snofrid Yagami reawakens to the world after having her memories stolen and is certain of only one thing: She will do anything to ensure her freedom.

I have to start this review by saying that I never considered the Science Fiction genre to hold much interest for me. I have been quite happy reading the classics; both aged and modern. The one thing that I realized about each book that I fell in love with throughout my life be it “The Outsiders” or “Gone with the Wind” or “Charlotte’s Web” or “Jane Eyre” or “Le Mur” or anything by Vonnegut; the one thing each one of those novels had in common was a good story that drew me into a completely believable world the author created for me with good storytelling abilities in written format. I gave this book a chance because I respect the ideas presented by the two authors in several YouTube videos as they discuss their perspectives on various topics which effect their lives. I am thrilled that I did. I loved their world that they created. It drew me in immediately and held me captivated until the final page. The ladies presented this as the first in a series; I for one am eagerly awaiting the next installment. It has also opened my eyes to the realization that Science Fiction does indeed interest me,
