First thing I have to say is when you start this book, be prepared to finish it ! I started it and had to put it down and it was rough! Aria writes us into a world with hot smoldering flames and destruction everywhere. Its not hard to picture the world at its most destructive time. My heart went out to each and every character has they fight to survive. This novel is as real as they come ! My heart stopped many times, it was so real I felt myself sweating ! LOL ! Great read and well worth the time in reading it :)5 heat felt stars
