Lily is a good character, sheltered, but fiesty. This is an intriguing concept for a dystopian with a magic slant. I don't think I should give that screwball away. Although it was outta left field, it wasn't very well developed. I think there could be a whole novella just on that aspect.
It's definitely worth it for you to pick up this book if you like dystopians and if you like novels with an element of magic, like I do. It also has a bit of romance and like I said, a fiesty lead female character. This is the first in a series. I'm excited to see where it goes.
