I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

I found that I was unable to put this book down. I was reeled in from the first chapter and felt fulfilled by the time the last page came. I loved the characters - even though some I could personally smack. They were all well developed; as was the storyline. I look forward to the next installment and other works from this author.

Wow. This book surprised me. It's got a great storyline, some pretty interesting characters, and an emotional intensity that pulls the reader in. There's a lyrical darkness that accompanies the plot and some comforting but natural humor mixed in as well. I recommend this YA/NA novel to readers of dystopias, especially fans of the Wither series. I look forward to the next book in this series.

Review by: Mary on Sep. 10, 2013 :
Blue is the ocean, ever shifting; the fragile strength of a cornflower by the roadside; the color of the sky in between tempests. It is also the name of a girl who must fight for the lives of those who oppress her. As she trains, hides, and survives, Blue struggles to hold onto her humanity in a society that classifies her and her family as inferior in every aspect. The Way is a quick paced read for those stuck in the chaotic humdrum of daily life. Blue is the color of innocence and blood, of love and fear.

(4/5 stars when compared to Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan, etc! )

Mary Twomey, what a gifted and creative author. This is the fifth book of Mary's I have read. Mary's imagination is so vast that I cannot always wrap my mind around her choice of plots. I can't help but wonder as I rapidly turn page after page, "Where did she come up with this and why does this strange plot entice me so much?"
I'll tell you why! Mary Twomey has mastered the development of her characters. From page one and maybe even paragraph one, you're hooked. You want to know what is going to happen next to the character you are currently reading about in that chapter. You also can't wait to turn the next page and read the next chapter as you wonder how these characters are going to intersect and how this fits in with this unusual plot.
As I read this book and quickly turned the pages (or in my case touched my iPad to flip to the next page), there was this nagging the back of my mind, "Am I still reading a book about two groups of people separated by blood type?" But that thought was quickly silenced as I wondered and waited to find out what happened to each of the characters, not able to read fast enough to satisfy my longing to discover the next revelation of the plot.
All the while the other nagging thought in my mind was the dreadful knowledge that this is another trilogy I am reading and I won't find out all the answers at the end of this book but will have to impatiently wait for the release of book two and eventually book three. Why do authors torture us so!?
To end, I must tell you to choose to read this book and be introduced to the amazing imagination and writing abilities of Mary Twomey.
