I loved this book... I thought it was gripping, exciting and thoroughly enjoyable. The romance was wonderfully played out and I loved the sparks that flew between the two characters. I thought the world building held just enough mystery without becoming confusing. For most of the book I felt like I was in a standard fantasy setting yet here and there, guns and antiseptic were in use. However this didn't feel out of place, just rare and for those with money.
I loved the fast pace of the book and the way it questioned the rightness of the rebellion. I thought the conflicts were well placed and the violence just at the right pitch. I started reading in my tea break and read all the way through lunch. I then risked motion sickness and read on the bus home, I was that into finishing it. Unfortunately I now have to wait for the sequel.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants dysotopian romance with well drawn characters.
