Publisher's Summary

While the other girls in the walled city-state of Baalboden learn to sew and dance, Rachel Adams learns to track and hunt. While they bend like reeds to the will of their male protectors, she uses hers for sparring practice.
When Rachel's father fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the city's brutal commander assigns Rachel a new protector: her father's apprentice, Logan - the boy she declared her love to and who turned her down two years before. Left with nothing but fierce belief in her father's survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself.
As Rachel and Logan battle their way through the wasteland, stalked by a monster that can't be killed and an army of assassins out for blood, they discover romance, heartbreak, and a truth that will incite a war decades in the making.

Rolling my eyes!!!!

Ok, 1st this has potential but I just can't get over Rachel. She is supposed to be this strong independent person but honestly comes across as a self centered, hotheaded brat who is all "gung ho" about getting in trouble but almost wets her pants every time she gets caught. She doesn't think, just jumps ahead without thinking. How is it that most "strong independent" women in some books are just written as complete idiots who sound smart but act dumb. I mean obvious dumb. Not even a subtle.

Logan. Ok, for whatever reason people are writing about him like he is so mean. I don't think he is mean enough. He is her protector and she does everything to try to get him and her killed. He only thinks about locking her up and never does...he doesn't call her out on any of the dumb things she does and he ends up getting in serious trouble of over stupidity and independent thinking, aka "jump before leaping and forget about consequences".

This book may be ok for other people but it is not for me. I want may money back.
