Pretty good book but i did find myself skipping through most of the stuff. I felt nothing for Ashley or Blaze in particular.. The plot was awesome but a teeny bit too simple. That's pretty much it for the negatives.
The fact that the whole world functions on moons was enough to intrigue me. The world building is vivid and entrancing and so beautifully described you actually feel like you're in another world. Ashley's bravery to save her world was pretty cool but i think what i liked the most was the ending. A pretty good cliffhanger!
Just a quick thin-i LOVE THOSE NAMES! Redhart Jaz, Blackwater Blaze and Ashkillion! Man i wish people in our world were named like that!
Savile is definitely making his way up the YA ranks!
