This book absolutely blew me away! I did not expect to love this as much as I did.
I think the thing I loved about it the most was the world building. We have Moonburners and Sunburners, two factions who are constantly at war with each other. Our MC, Kai, is a Moonburner who has to hide herself as a boy because she lives with the Sunburners. Her parents knew that if they didn't hide her powers then she would be killed as a young girl. They tried to disguise them for as long as they could, but during an attack on their village, Kai is unmasked. She is exiled and left to rot in the desert, her father is killed and her mother is sent as a slave to a man who has always desired her. Kai has to find the will to survive and find her way to other moonburners, what follows is an extraordinary journey, one filled with lies, deception, secrets and so much more!!! Absolutely everything about the world building was phenomenal! The author has created a magical world that will immediately grab you and not let go.
The characters were amazing as well. Each were well written and developed and you can't help but root for them. Kai grew so much during the course of the book and I loved seeing that growth. She had so much to contend with and it was so nice to see her reach her full potential. I can't wait to read more in this world and of these characters! I also loved her seishen, Quitsu. He rocked!!
In all, this was a refreshing read. I think I was getting jaded with the amount of books that all felt the same, so after reading this unique and captivating read, it's restored my faith in YA. I love finding little gems like this and can't recommend it enough! I need book 2!!!
The narrator did an amazing job with Kai. She really got her and really brought her to life. I've listened to other books by this narrator, though not enough!! I will definitely check out more by her.
I received this for free via Audiobook boom. This in no way affected or influenced my thoughts.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Young adult, however appropriate for all ages. I was really drawn into this story from the beginning. I was immediately intrigued by the premise. Enough young romance to keep you engaged, but not overdone.
PROFANITY AND SEX: None, thank you. Appropriate for readers of all ages. I would be happy for my teenage or pre-teen children to read or listen to this book.
NARRATOR: I felt that the narrator did a great job at bringing this book to life. I was never lost, or confused as I listened to the book.
OVERALL: Lots of twists and turns, not another “canned” YA romance. I listened to this book in one sitting during a trip and loved it.
