Here's the blurb from Amazon:
Forbidden love, intoxicating power, and the terror of control…
Raine has always been a good girl. She lives by the rules in Freedom. After all, they are her father’s rules: He’s the Director. It’s because of him that Raine is willing to use her talent—a power so dangerous, no one else is allowed to know about it. Not even her roommate, Vi.
All of that changes when Raine falls for Gunner. Raine’s got every reason in the world to stay away from Gunn, but she just can’t. Especially when she discovers his connection to Vi’s boyfriend, Zenn.
Raine has never known anyone as heavily brainwashed as Vi. Raine’s father expects her to spy on Vi and report back to him. But Raine is beginning to wonder what Vi knows that her father is so anxious to keep hidden, and what might happen if she helps Vi remember it. She’s even starting to suspect Vi’s secrets might involve Freedom’s newest prisoner, the rebel Jag Barque….
Before I even opened the book, I couldn't help fall in love with the cover. It has such powerful imagery. The colors and simplicity of it captivated me.
And as I opened the cover and allowed myself to be immersed in Elana's world, I found the writing to not disappoint.
What I love about this book: Wow. What to choose? I'd have to say the action. There wasn't a dull moment here and I found the pages flew beneath my fingertips.
What makes this book unique: The technology. Elana's mind blows mine. Where does she come up with this kind of stuff? E-boards, enhancements, hoverboards, spiders, and caches. She takes superhero qualities and mixes them with modern technology to create a unique world.
Why should you read it? The struggle. I found Raine's struggle to be free from her father's control, yet needing to find purpose in her world an excellent pull. Raine is a character a reader can identify with. It's refreshing how she deals with her struggle instead of just relying on a cute boy. She's strong and independent, yet she knows when to seek help from her friends.
"Can you brainwash me?" the Director asked.
"I believe I can, sir."
"I believe you can too, Mr. Jameson."
