DISCLAIMER: I received this book in exchange of a review, in honor of this tour. May contain spoilers, but hopefully not. All opinions are my own, and not by any means influenced by others.
As we continue to follow Regina as she sneaks to the other side of the Wall and is about to start a new phase in her life. She is going to the University, and plans to find her sister. There are a few, or several, set-backs as she goes, but Regina continues to push forward and work hard to accomplish her goals. Demarco is still looking for Regina; they may have had a few run-ins, but somehow Regina slips from her almost-clutches.
Getting to continue the story definitely was a must when I finished the last book. I think there was only one part in the story that made me grimace, but I got passed it. The fact that the majority of all the characters are women kind of . . . I guess I was expecting some of the male roles to appear, but it was still a great read, nonetheless.
