After surviving the battle that erupted after Lo and the Bosha clan attacked, now Mya is looking ahead to her future with Kol. All the things that once felt so uncertain to her are finally falling into place. But the same night as Kol and Mya's betrothal announcement, Mya's brother Chev reveals his plan to marry their youngest sister, Lees, to his friend Morsk. The only way to avoid this terrible turn of events, Morsk informs Mya when he corners her later, is for Mya to take Lees' place and marry him herself.

Non stop action in a fresh setting. I listen while I walk and found myself getting caught up in the action and walking faster and faster. Great book for teens in that the characters experience pain and loss but is otherwise PG. I appreciate an exciting engaging well read story without foul language.

Poorly written. Very thin characters with LOADS of inconsistencies. There is literally no one to like or care about in this book. Narration overly dramatic and annoying. I regret spending 13+ hours listening. Good thing I walk while I listen or it would have been a complete bust.

Hunting, gathering, and keeping his family safe - that's the life 17-year-old Kol knows. Then bold, enigmatic Mya arrives from the south with her family, and Kol is captivated. He wants her to like and trust him, but any hopes of impressing her are ruined when he makes a careless - and nearly grave - mistake. However, there's something more to Mya's cool disdain - a history wrought with loss that comes to light when another clan arrives. With them is Lo, an enemy from Mya's past who Mya swears has ulterior motives.

I found myself holding my breath so many times. I enjoyed the style and setting. Full of interesting details about this time in history. Can't wait for more from this author. Please tell me there will be more books!
