Marked and unemployed, Willow falls in with a band of dissidents. Everyone wants something. In the process of discerning friend from foe, Willow begins to unravel secrets that will shake the New Republic of America to its foundation.
To be honest, I really wasn't sure about this book when I first started it. It began with a woman who had met a man at a conference and was, within a few hours, in bed with him. It had been a few days and she was "in love," remembering how they first met, and everything was sort of all over the place, a mash up of memories and real life (at least that's how I interpreted it).
BUT … within a few pages I was hooked and couldn't put it down. IT went from "eh" to really impressive and I enjoyed the story – riveted. Every page was interesting and it really made you think, especially since the idea behind it all would make a conspiracy theorist smile big. I can't wait to read the rest of this series.
