Bryn has been kidnapped by the XBestia, a group of "xenofreaks": people who have had animal parts or skin grafted onto themselves, mostly for decorative purposes, but sometimes the grafts are useful as well. The xenos are largely societal outcasts and stereotypically criminal. There are many groups who are against the practice of xenoalteration, and Bryn's father is the leader of the biggest. However, no one's motivations are quite what they seem, and many secrets are revealed throughout this fast-paced and suspenseful book. Bryn is a very strong young lady, and very resourceful. She is a positive role-model for young ladies reading this book, and I believe they would relate to her.
I would recommend this to fans of Twilight and The Hunger Games.
