They’re known as Firestarters. Boomers. Skychangers. The government calls them Illegals — children with inexplicable abilities — and detains them in menacing facilities so that society is kept out of harm’s way. Ashala Wolf and her Tribe of fellow Illegals have taken refuge in the Firstwood, a forest eerily conscious of its inhabitants, where they do their best to survive and where they are free to practice their abilities. But when Ashala is compelled to venture outside her territory, she is betrayed by a friend and captured by an enemy. Injured and vulnerable, with her own Sleepwalker ability blocked, Ashala is forced to succumb to a machine that will pull secrets from her mind. It’s only a matter of time before the machine ferrets out the location of the Tribe. Her betrayer, Justin Connor, is ever-present, saving her life when she wishes to die and watching her every move. Will the Tribe survive the interrogation of Ashala Wolf?
I was a little confused in the beginning but i am pretty sure the Author did that on purpose, so you can feel as confused as the character. The more the story goes on the more you connect the dots to what is going on in the story.
I did read the book fairly fast. Cause for one the character in the book was awesome and second the whole plot with the Twist and Turns that had me flipping threw the pages just to find out more. I really loved most of the characters in the book but the main one was for sure hands down, Ashala. Even after finishing the book i can still say she is a favorite of mine. The Love and care the character has for her tribe members was just flowing out of the pages for me. The love and care she has for them is strong and just beautiful, even when she was betrayed by one she still cared for them..because they where Tribe.
you read you Ashala point of View but you also get connect with the other characters in the book. That is one of the things i liked about the book. Yes it was about Ashala but really it was about the others too. Once you watch the book unravel, it becomes this powerful book to me like trust and family and the things you will do to protect them. Scene that had me crying, but a lot of scenes was just so freaking sad…sad scene that still put a smile on your face. I Don’t want to say much about the other characters but besides Connor..i just have to mention him.
Threw the book i was just craving for more Conner. you get left confused by Connor threw most of the book. BUT i more towards the end you finally get more on Connor and omg i cried! specially around the end…the tears just wouldn’t stop. Conner is Awesome and i am gonna go ahead and jump on the Ashala and Conner Ship. There relationship starts off a little rocky but once you read the book, that becomes understandable.
Overall: Besides the slow confusing beginning, i couldn’t find a flaw in the book. It’s full of Mystery and lots of other awesome stuff. The book i guess you can say is a dystopian but mixed with supernatural. Anyways awesome Bool. I defiantly recommend it.
