Thanks to the folks over at Read It & Reap for entrusting me with an honest review.
I had such high hopes for this book, but it fell short of my expectations. I found myself reading it in zombie mode. In other words, I felt very detached. I kept getting déjà vu of the Hunger Games in the beginning. Then just when the story line started to prove me wrong, something else would turn me off. I failed to sense the danger. The romance aspect was a little intriguing, but I felt weirded out by the reoccurring reference to wrists. *Sigh* At last, I had to set the book down and move on to more exciting adventures within the margins of another novel.
Perhaps in the near future I will give this a review redemption (option 2).
