So what’s it about?
Broken and confused after the death of her brother, Ace Harpy Hunter Piper Madden is on the run. Who is she hiding from? The all-controlling Elder Corporation. But then Piper is discovered in the underground city of Ichton and the Corp asks her to work for them to help fight a new Harpy threat. Piper soon discovers that the Corp is full of secrets and with the help of the mysterious Asher she tries to discover the truth.
Love it or hate it?
Words cannot describe how much I love this book. Everything about it is fantastic; the post-war world where part of the surface is heavily radiated, the underground cities, Piper, her friends and Asher… Everything is described perfectly. Leggett has created an amazing work of art.
So what did I think of Piper? She was one hell of a protagonist; broken, witty and capable of kicking serious butt. I loved her! Her journey as she discovers terrible secrets and tries to decide who she can trust had me hooked from the first page.
Then there’s Asher, or Ash for short. Where to begin? He’s mysterious and can certainly give Piper a run for her money in the wit department. The guy should wear a label saying ‘danger-the moment I open my mouth you’ll be swooning’. In case you can’t tell I’m a little bit in love with him.
I also loved Piper’s friends, Sandy and Shelley.
I was never bored however this book should also come with a warning. ‘Read at your own risk’. Yep. In the last 10% of the book I went from squeals of happiness to sobbing like my heart had been ripped out and trampled on. What a book. It may just be my new favourite book ever.
Read this if…
“Do you think she’ll be suspicious?” I ask. He takes a last look at the empty window, shrugs and shuts the door gently.
“Probably not, but I don’t think she would suspect anything beyond an after dinner booty-call.”
