“Life is made of so many moments that mean nothing. Then one day, a single moment comes along to define every second that comes after. Such moments are tests of courage, of strength.”

This book is told from two very different perspectives.

Laia is a Scholar – a people now ruled over by the Martial Empire, they have been treated terribly and many are now poor, illiterate and/or enslaved. When her brother is arrested for treason, and assumedly being tortured in a Martial prison, Laia goes to the Resistance for help. The only way the resistance will help Laia is if she helps them in return. She is sent to Blackcliff Military Academy as a slave to spy on the Commandant.

Elias, the son of the Commandant and Blackcliff’s finest soldier, has one wish - to be free of the horror that is the Martial Empire. At first, he is willing to run from all that he knows to achieve that freedom but when events that could change everything occur, he is forced to stay and find a different path to the life he wants.  

I found the book a bit slow to take off, especially as you learn who the main characters are and about the world they live in buuuut once you start to understand it takes your hand, starts to run and doesn’t really stop, not even at the end.

The book is written beautifully. Tahir has managed to create a whole world that you can easily picture without being too wordy or too difficult to get your head around. Her creatures and language come across as new and exciting. The ending was amazing and makes going through all the trials of the book worth it, it leaves you wanting to reach for the sequel right away (which I unfortunately couldn’t do, ugghhh).

The characters are nicely fleshed out. You can really feel the growth of the characters as you go through the different events of the book with them and you can tell that the growth will continue in future books. So far, my favourite character is not one of the main characters but Izzi, she is a light in such a dark book especially considering all that she has been through to survive Blackcliff academy.

Without giving too much away, there is a bit of a love square in this book and I’m not sure how I feel about it, I think I will need to read the other books in the series before I can say whether it was the right choice. I will give Tahir credit that the book is so well written that the love square is hardly your main concern and doesn’t take over the book in any way. It’s definitely a subplot that helps to push along the story in ways you really wouldn’t expect.

Something to keep in mind when reading this book is that there are many quite horrifying themes, including child abuse, torture and rape. It’s actually surprisingly depressing for a teen fiction book(think Hunger Games but worse). Technically, it’s only graphic enough to get the threat across to the reader but could be quite upsetting to those who are unaware. These themes though are what really make this book so gripping, you feel the terror and sorrow of the characters in each situation but cannot do anything to stop what’s happening, it’s almost heartbreaking.

Overall, this book is a really good start to what will hopefully be an amazing series. I would absolutely recommend it, but you really have to be emotionally ready for it.  

4/5 STARS
