    My Rating: 5 stars!

    A very, very, very good novel. Quite dark but I’m an intriguing way. The story really gets you thinking and engaging with the character. For the first time ever, I was unable to figure out what I wanted to do. On one hand 

    Spoiler

    I wanted Mari to kill Maya cause she deserves death. But on the other hand she doesn’t because she’s and innocent girl doing the best for her country.

    It was the first time a book has made me unable to figure out my own emotion and what I would have done in a similar scenario. Great book! Can’t wait for more! 

    P.S.: The author is very engaged with the community and is very good with regular updates. Really recommend trying out the book!

    Ok, so I am giving this story four stars. The story seems intriguing so far and as far as I read, the character development of the protagonist is satisfying. The one star I deducted because of the punctuation errors.
