Review:
I devoured this book in 4 hours. It swept me in and took me to a world I don’t know much about. The world of Veils, betrayals, no rights, cruelty of mankind. The story was slow but good. It worked well for the character as she was the type of person. The part I like the most though was at the end and not part of the story. It was about some of the feminist who have tried to overcome that part of the world.

Just amazing crazy stories I had never even heard of.

I don’t watch the news. I am not aware of my surroundings. And seeing the stories young protagonist go through all that was very eye opening. There is a hint about a second book. And I am most curious about that. Hopefully it will be written.
