I like this author. I like SciFi and my favorite book genre is YA dystopia so it came as no surprise that I was enjoying this book from the first page. Sophelia is an escaped slave in a hellish future where the gap between the haves and have nots has widened considerably. If you don't follow the rules you can be killed by the corrupt government. The poor work in the mines with barely enough water and food to survive. People have to even pay for the oxygen they breathe. And if you can't pay your taxes then you are sold into slavery. Maxton lives a life of crime working for the black market. These two characters meet and they work together to survive. Some swoon worthy sweet and gentle romance happens between the thrilling fight for survival. I liked the characters a lot and this book was really exciting. I was on edge and nervous at times while reading because I was drawn in so deeply into the story. 4 stars.
