I enjoyed this book, but I’m not over the moon about it. I did however, really enjoy the audiobook narration with two narrators for the separate perspectives. I’m still suspicious of Ms. Veronica Roth after Divergent, but I might pick up the sequel in this duology. I am excited to have more Cyra and Akos, I enjoyed the slow burn romance.
