Publisher's Summary

"The Lucretias always take what they want. And that includes me." Cayla was told she had nothing to fear from the Lucretias - at least, not more than anyone else in the city. Her aunt and uncle paid their tithes on time, looked the other way when witnessing crimes, and never caused any trouble. When the sirens blare at Cayla's school, she knows that someone has crossed the Lucretias, and the crime family is there to take their vengeance. Huddled with her classmates, she waits for the inevitable to pass. Except when the Lucretias knock down the door to her own classroom, Jon Lucretia, heir to the dark dynasty, catches sight of Cayla - and decides to claim her as his own. Taken as a prisoner into their opulent and guarded estate, Cayla must decide how to fight for her life, and her heart....

Any additional comments?

I tried to like the book but I had a hard time following the story. The only good thing for me is the narrator. Her voice and by the way she read the parts of the different characters are very good.

Suprisingly Good

I was given a copy of this Audible book in exchange for an honest review through Audiobook Blast.

This book took me by surprise... several times. The first half seemed to be a fairly typical YA with a somewhat interesting plot line. But then the twists and turns start happening and the story turned into something so much more. At times I found myself wondering if this was a bit too full on to be a YA.

All I can say is don't listen to this book thinking you are going to get some typical teen romance or you will be sorely disappointed. This book is violent, with unlikable and cruel characters and a surprisingly savvy female protagonist who will do anything to survive the situation she finds herself in.

I also enjoyed the narration and found the performance easy to listen to.
