"Awesome YA distopian fantasy"
This book was my favorite teenage reads, I'm so glad it is now an audiobook. The world it builds is imaginative and original and this book is only the first of a long series. The author performs this book and she does a good job. If you like mind powers and young woman's quest against persecution in a distopian future then you'll like this book.
