For too long Violet and the people of the outer circles of the Lone City have lived in service of the royalty of the Jewel. But now the secret society known as the Black Key is preparing to seize power. While Violet knows she is at the center of this rebellion, she has a more personal stake in it - for her sister, Hazel, has been taken by the Duchess of the Lake. Now, after fighting so hard to escape the Jewel, Violet must do everything in her power to return to save not only Hazel but the future of the Lone City.

I liked this book but feel like the ending left a lot of detail that was probably happening during the rebellion out. The ending felt a little too quick for me.

But behind the drool and stare, Brady is awake and in possession of deadly new powers that allow him to wreak unimaginable havoc without ever leaving his hospital room.

Juan Martinez, the fiery prosecutor who convicted notorious murderess Jodi Arias for the disturbing killing of Travis Alexander, speaks for the first time about the shocking investigation and sensational trial that captivated the nation. Through two trials, America watched with bated breath as Juan Martinez fought relentlessly to convict Jodi Arias of murder one for viciously stabbing her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, to death.

This book follows the trial accurately but leaves out some of the behind the scenes activities that I wanted to hear about. Having listened to Jeff Ashton's book on the Casey Anthony trial, this book was disappointing in that it really only talked about what happened in the court room. I watched the trial of Jodi Arias so I was hopping to hear more insight about what it was like for Juan Martinez and more of the interaction with Travis Alexander's family. I wanted more feeling, not just a play by play of the trail. It was entertaining but the actual trial was way better.
