More About This Book

Overview

She has no name.

She has her knives. Her training. Her halo.

The first and second give her the ability to defeat the opponents she is pitted against each month. The third frees her from pain and fear. From any kind of emotion at all. Everything is as it should be. Everything is as it should be, until...

Fear... Pain... Anger... Happiness... Desire... Guilt...

Love.

When a newly named Kit escapes the Sanctuary after killing her best friend, the last thing she needs is another knife in her hand. Or Ryka, the damaged, beautiful blond boy, whom she refuses to let save her. The sights and sounds of Freetown are new, yet one thing is familiar: the matches. The only difference? Where the blood in the Sanctuary landed only on the Colosseum floor, Kit will quickly learn that a river of red runs through Freetown's very streets.

Without her halo, the inhabitants of Kit's new home consider her saved, but is that really the case? The reality of her old life is paralyzing. Would she be better off free of the guilt associated with all the blood on her hands, or is the love of one boy worth living through all the pain?

The rumbling chant for fresh blood, the demand for sacrifice, echoes in Kit's ears. The Colosseum is behind her. The fighting pits await.

    Amazing!

    This book is awesome! If you liked the divergent series, hunger games or any other story lines similiar to those than you will love this read. The main character is a bad ass and it has great romance. It is well written and keeps you interested. I could not put this book down and i finished it in two days. I cant wait for the next book!

    Great Book!

    Halo is like nothing I've ever read before! If you like action, adventure and romance then you have to read this book. Frankie Rose is a great writer and she knows how to captivate you with her words. There was no way I was putting this book down until I read the very last word. Read it , love it then reread because you will!

    Rose gives us the opportunity to feel what that would be like, t

    Rose gives us the opportunity to feel what that would be like, through the eyes of the Falin of House Kitsch. We go through our lives constantly keeping our reactions to our emotions in check. We consider the feelings of others when we reply to their statements. We gauge society's response to every choice.

    We've trained ourselves to control our emotions.

    Small children, on the other hand, are still learning. Their reactions are juvenile, and often confusing.They don't always understand our decisions, and many times respond with anger or sadness when they have no need to do so.

    Now imagine knowing you have to react maturely, like an adult, without having the training to do so, like a child.

    Welcome to Kit's world.

    As you can imagine, her emotional reactions are often juvenile. She doesn't have the experience that we do. This tends to get her into trouble, which tends to make her emotions spiral even more out of control.
    Poor Kit...

    And we're taken on that overwhelmingly intense ride along with her, meaning that we feel much of what she feels... plus the added frustration of realizing that proper emotional control would have kept her out of trouble, minimizing her agony.
    Poor us!

    This ebook was extraordinarily exhausting... in a good way. I felt like I was right there next to Kit, and I wanted her to succeed. I needed her to succeed. She was important to me, and I had to know that she'd be able to pry herself from any situation she placed herself in.

    Well written if you liked Divergent and Legend or Maze Runner you should like this.  It's quite a bit more violent than Divergent 
    Divergent. Th characters are well formed. Good read.
