    Fate friend or Foe?? One side of the coin: The cruel hand of fate separated Adele from the rest of her family. Torn apart and imprisoned in some fashion or another. A family accused of treason against the government. Seventeen is an age of change and growth for our heroine. Doing time and becoming numb are no longer an option for her. Especially when confronted with the bizarre reaction she has upon coming into contact with the hierarchy's son. Distance from everyone seemed to work while riding out her eighteenth birthday. So Adele thought until a chance encounter shows her having support from another is not so bad. One friend quickly turns into two. With her new friends willing to help her risk it all to gather her scattered family. She goes out to meet her fate. The other: Tristan loathing the life of luxury his forefathers carefully mapped out. Born the son of a President shouldn't be such a burden to bare. As life unfolds he realizes living on the sacrifice's of the lower ranking classes is not all it's cracked up to be. Heading out to take life by the hands is next on his agenda. Going to pursue a girl who bewitched him only with a stare. That and it was backed up by an electrical sensation that was to painful to forget. I really loved this post apocalyptic tale. The way it jumped between the two rebels. The story just flows spinning from both of their points of views. It was great like both sides where written toward each other. Each chapter tied me into the chaos that Adele was drowning in and then the aftermath Tristan would dive into. I feel the writing was perfectly paced. The way it all unfurls Tristan and Adele both rushing out with so much to achieve. Constantly crossing paths. I was swept away from the moment I picked it up this morning. It was a gripping tale of these two at complete odds with life. Both with contrasting childhoods coming from two different classes of people. The writing and descriptive back rounds for the characters was tactfully done. So much life was poured into them. They stirred so many different emotions from me. I found the writing from both Tristan's and Adele's POV a key player. It made the book dynamic. Hard to put down.!!

    Second installment of the series.... SO STINKING GOOD!!!! Really! Picked up right where the first left off. It had the same intensity as the previous book. I can't wait to see how it all pans out for our star crossed couple. If you like the Hunger Games, David Estes' Dweller series is right up there. Totally different idea, but the story of two people who make a difference with their actions not just talking the talk. Actually mixing it up effecting everybody they come in to contact with. The story is filled with emotional scenarios that just leave you on the edge of the seat. I know my review does not talk of the story-line.. but you can read the excerpt on the book...lol.. I hate giving away the goods.
