    A wonderfully told story!

    The story starts off with the main character, Callen, as a 7 year old. He lives in a walled city where stories about the world outside the walls are so bad that no one from the city wants to leave. Callen, as a child, is being attacked by an older boy and as he runs, he discovers a tunnel to the outside. He is injured and is briefly taken care of by the Outlocked, the name given to the people who live outside the walls. He then is returned to the city where he is told that it was all a dream. While Callen is attending the University, he decides to see if it was all a dream or for real. The author really grabbed a hold of me and made Callen a character that I cared about. The writing was well done and I thought that the ending of the book was beautifully done. I can't wait to read some of Mr. Northon's other works... if they are as good as "Inner-City," then I will definitely enjoy the ride.

    Great Story, Loved it!

    Loved the adventure.
    When I can picture the story as a movie in my mind, the writer has done a good job.

    Couldn't put it down...

    For this to have been a free book, it was wonderful. The author keeps you on the edge of your seat. I couldn't put this down. I think this would make a great movie!

    This book was amazing. It told the story of Callen and how he changed his world and everyone's around him. This book is very deep, will play with your emotions, and give you a sad but satisfying ending. If you are looking for a book that will make you cry, laugh, scream, and want more action, this is the book for you. I am saying all of this, and I am only thirteen. I recommend this book for people of all ages.

    A read like no other,

    This is a book that you will not willing put down from the very first page to the last page. The book is very well written, even if the intro to the book does not do it justic. I can see this book being popular will young adults. The aurtor has giving a life to cullen that you can relate to and root for. I hate it when a book is runied by spolirs in a reveiw so i can only say you will not be disapointed by reading tjis book i look forward to reading more work from this arutor and i hope you do too. If you have enjoy this book and are looking for that next great read try "the last thing i rememeber" or work done by mercide lackey.

    Great Book!!!

    This book was a great book to read and was not just a short story. It was a quick read and hard to put down because I had to find out what was going to happen.

    How many pages does this book have?

    I am asking because some free books are like 28 pages long and that is just not worth getting! There is no way a story can really be developed from the charectors to the plot( if it even has one!) to a true book! So I just need to know. From the reviews it sounds like a great book!

    Terrible

    I think all the positive reviews were written by the author himself. Completely an utterly ridiculous. No amount of suspension of disbelief is going to make this story fly. Don't waste your time.
