I received this in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. I don't care enough about the characters or story to read the later books in the series. Which I do not care for so enough about him.

The story focuses on Violet, a juvenile delinquent who ends up in a detention centre in the Matrus city after her brother fails their all-important test and gets taken away.

I read this book in less than 24 hours, mainly because it's easy to digest, short and also because I ended up skipping the boring bits I do this a lot with books - anything that's irrelevant to the storyline, you bet I'll skim right over.

Great plot, interesting characters and full of suspense. Yet what happens on her very first morning? This book brought about those emotions and many more.
