Review by Charity Bradford
A girl that’s been basically tortured her whole life finally gets the chance to be part of a group that is more family than crew.
There is an undercurrent of learning to love yourself and accept love from others. Liora feels she’s expendable, worthless, but her newfound friends are slowly convincing her otherwise. For a book with a lot of battle scenes, there were no swear words. That’s pretty unheard of these days and I appreciated that. There is a lot going on, and I’m pretty sure I’ll get the next book.
No language, no sex, no kissing even though she thinks about it. The only concern I would have for younger readers is the level of fighting and violence. There are some seriously twisted mean guys, and our main character is a trained killer that’s been kept in a cage for years. She has major trust and anger issues to work out. However, she’s also one of the kindest, most selfless people in the story. Great juxtaposition.
