Publisher's Summary

Alone in the throng of competition and cruelty, with nothing but guts, is defiance enough to ascend above the ordeals of the Artifice Academy?
Mad science, friendship and betrayal, Black Sand, politics: the Artifice Academy is a hard place: every moment a lesson, every lesson a trap. Inga dares to hope, walking a tightrope of isolation between failure and madness.

HER THOUGHTS TRIPPED OVER EACH OTHER
If you are 8 to 12 years old, make this a five star book. The book is well written, has lessons for growing youth, by showing and not telling. Some exciting action and plenty to think about. It is a little light in darkness for adults, but pleasant to listen to. My grandkids are not old enough for this, so I will not continue the series.

CHAAAPTER
The narrator is unique, but fits this young person story well.

Young adult? Not sure, but this adult loves it.

I was surprised by this book. It's categorized as YA, but definitely deals with some heavy topics (primarily drug abuse). It was a great read and I found myself getting very attached to Inga, our main character. I can't wait for the rest of the series to be released on audible.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
