Hello beautiful book lovers, I have a book review for you here. A little heads up…. I’m totally OBSESSED 😱 like probably have a serious problem, like actually think I’m apart of it….. not really that would be crazy! (I’m totally not joking)

“When the wilfully blind finally open their eyes, they see society for what it is:
Okay, So you know when you start reading a book and you’re like, “oh my god, this is freakin’ awesome”, so you don’t want to do anything else but read it…. but your kids need feeding and there are dishes to be washed and clothes to be cleaned…. a little neglecting didn’t hurt anyone, right?
Well this was EXACTLY that! Intense from the beginning, dragging me in with emotions running wild and everyone thinking I’ve lost it, especially when I started to talk to the Book! But admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery, isn’t it? Heck! Screw that! I’m a crazy fan girl and I don’t give a crap! Woooo!
Okay, moving on. So enough about my crazy rambling let’s get back to the book. Molly has created a Dystopian world full of characters of all attitudes. Meeting Wynter Reeves for the first time was crazy, insane. With an action-packed opening to the story, in a believable world and three rules Wynter swore by , “Don’t stand out. Blend in. Remain invisible.” Right away you’re asking questions. Desperate to find the answers too. Sucked into the world it’s self with no way out but forward… reading… devouring every word.
Well, she does stand out, she doesn’t blend in and she certainly doesn’t remain invisible, not after turning up for her exam and having a vision! Yes, I said a vision, a vision of the end of the world! Now at this point I’m like… whhhhaaaattt?
So let’s skip forward a little…. her visions are caused by the disease ‘Ultraxenopia’, and the ruthless Dr Richter has her in his lab putting her through some gruelling tests. I swear this guy has to be the best BAD GUY, ever! You will love to hate him, for real!
I’m going to show you a little fan art now, let you take that all in before I continue 😬
So this is Wynter and Ezra… I’ll get to him shortly.
Right, so during these tests and how the hell this girl survived, I don’t know, they were brutal! We learn of Ezra Laramie, member of PHOENIX, a terrorist group. Which brings me to say she escaped, obviously, or where would the story take us then.
Fast forward and Wynter is smack bang in the middle of the group PHOENIX, they are nothing like the public are made to believe…. more questions… this is another reason I LOVE this, Molly drip feeds you little details that connects throughout! Brilliant!
A little more fan art you say….
This is Jenner, a member of PHOENIX and he is my favourite… he is cheeky and cute and I love him 😍
This is Rai and Dr Richter….. Rai is part of PHOENIX too.
All these characters have loads of history, which gives you back story, which I bloody love! That’s what I mean, her characters are so complex, it makes them real and memorable.
Back to the story… it’s intense and quite frankly I was on the edge of my seat. I hadn’t any clue what was going to happen next. A twist around every corner. The romance was super sweet and built up just right, giving you goosebumps at all the right moments. But I don’t want to ruin the build up of that because it truly was one of my favourite things about this book, believable romance ☺️
Swoooooon worthy ❤️❤️❤️
With everything that has happened, which is shit loads! The climax has both a cliffhanger BUT also lot of questions answered. So you do feel like you’ve come to the end but also anticipating the next book too… which FYI is out 6th of February 2018!
I could seriously talk forever about this but I feel you must read it to appreciate the brilliance of Molly’s writing, she has a pure talent and she has created a crazy ass fan girl!
I’ll leave you with the Book Trailer!! You’re welcome… enjoy 😉 and look out for an Author interview coming real soon!!!
Peace out losers, I mean lovelies ✌️😬
