Description: Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. Bu she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate.
I had no idea what to expect from this book. And, whatever I did expect, it was pretty much the opposite. It was so insanely intense. It took about 30 or 40 pages for me to start to understand the way Grace spoke. But, once I did I dove right into her story and her world.
Elizabet Scott always amazes me. She can write something so sweet and funny like Bloom, then she can write this world that is ugly, harsh, and cruel. Her talent and mind is amazing. She did a fabulous job telling a world of war and hate. It is amazing how similar two enemies are to each other. Yes, their beliefs were worded differently, but is essence they are the same. I enjoyed this book very, very much. Although, it is not my favorite. I can't deny how powerful it is. And, I can't deny how talented Elizabeth Scott is.
Grace as a character is so strong. Her fight for life is stunning. I can't say I'd do the same as she did in this story, but I relate to her survival instincts. I love, love, love how the story ended.
