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.

Can't wait for more.

Love this series I've read all three book twice before the audio versions came out. So happy!

The narrators voice was awful.

I feel like if I read the book rather than listened, it would be better. I couldn't get past the narrators voice and the way she would say things.
