This is easily the BEST free ebook I've read. I wasn't really sold based on the synopsis given here; but hey, it was free, so I gave it a try anyway. Within a couple of chapters I had decided that if I had paid for the book, it would have been totally worth it. The writing style, main character, and even some elements of the plot remind me a bit of The Hunger Games (which was obviously a hugely popular book), so if you liked that one, definitely give this one a try. The main character is a 17-year-old girl but this book will definitely appeal to a wide audience, young and old. The plot and characters are compelling (I couldn't put it down) and it is, refreshingly, REALLY well written. I get really distracted and annoyed by bad grammar/sentence structure or when authors obviously don't really understand all of the words they try to use... but there was NONE of that in this book. I think I noticed two typos in the whole thing. That's better than a lot of ebooks you have to pay for!! The only possible reason for this book being free is that the author never tried to sell it... because it would definitely sell. Keep writing, Ms. Taylor, and I'll be first in line to buy your next book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Well paced, intriguing, three-dimensional and complex characters. It was hard to put down. It may seem like a small matter, but I REALLY appreciated that this book had been well-edited and proof-read. There were no distracting errors, or wrong use of words because the author had allowed spell check to make all her decisions for her. I have high praise for Margaret Taylor, and will look forward to reading more of her work.

This is one of the most difficult books around i have tried to review. First of all, while being basically a heroes journey, the world it is set in is one of the most creative i have ever read about. For that reason alone, you should check this book out. It has good plot progression and character development, but seems to be choppy in parts. Its almost as though parts of it were written in haste, trying to get these ideas on paper, and others didnt have much thought put into them. The romantic aspect seemed rushed, as well as the ending. All said, seeing the premise fleshed out is worth the time spent reading.

i really like this book. it took a while to get into but once i did there was still a good amount of the book left for a good read. i finally found a good free book the was actually a full book. READ IT!

It's a little slow at the beginning, and then it'll pick up pace as you read. But it's a wonderful story, and could use only a little polish in order to bring it to a shining gem. Some of the fast-moving parts could use a little more details, for example. But Taylor builds an amazing world and culture, one that can capture the imagination if you give it a chance to.

This book is a great blend of science fiction and fantasy. Could not put this book down. I cant describe this book. It does take place on earth in the future. The gods hav punished man for their arrogance and technolical wars. The heroin unbeknownst to her, is picked as the second representative convince the stars (gods) to take back their punishment. The punishment had been no rain for 200 years an releasing man eating pteradactlys and a few demons on earth, which has the effect of turning the population back to the dark ages, but living among the deserted and mostly unusable wreckage of th modern age. Great book. Follow the heroins story a become a huge fan

If i were sure i was spelling phenomonal right i would have put that. While there are some parts of the story that could use a little reworking to bring it up to par with the rest of the story, this was an amazing read. The author has a lot of talent and even more potential. I would and will recommend this story to everyone. It's real, asks pertinent questions that make you think, and most of all... it tells a great story. Thank you Ms. Taylor.

I normally don't care for post-apocalyptic stories, but this one was really good. I couldn't stop reading it! It's a full length novel, which is my preference. The main character is believable and full of faults, rather than the super-human lead that so many books have. Highly recommended.

I absolutely LOVED this book, the different trials and tribulations Nasan is thrown into takes you on a journey and u feel as though your right there with her. I couldn't stand to put the Nook down, in fear I'd miss something. I only gave it four stars because I felt as though the ending was rushed and didn't allow me enough closure to Nissan's journey.

I HATED THIS STUPID BOOK! The plot was full of old, reused tricks and made little to no sense at all. This is just a crazy blend of Harry Potter, How to train your dragon, and Percy Jackson. Another thing: why would people 200 years in the future be saying such currently timed things? This girl was clearly not thinking straight when she wrote this monstrosity. THE KISSING SONG? REALLY?!!?!

This was a spectacular novel. The basic story is very different from what you would expect, especially because of the word "confederacy." The characters were well rounded, and the story flowed, making me not to want to put the novel down until I finished it (Unfortunately I had to do so a couple times, though.) Not only did I fall in love with the main character, that actually happened with some of the "bad" guys. If you like a good apocolyptic story that yells "I am different from all the others" throughout, then pick up this book. You will be glad you did so!!

Very sad this had to end. Not my normal historical read but I loved it from cover to cover. I write this because I read so many reviews that seem to be jaded. This is a quality story well worth reading.
