Darcy's Review:
While I thought this book looked intriguing I mostly picked it up because I needed a book that began with the letter "Q" for a challenge. So I was very surprised when the book was so good it seemed like I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.

At the beginning of the book Miranda seems very lost and you just want to find a way to invite her to your house to protect her. Then while going home one night she encounters 3 guys and horrible things happen to her, but in the aftermath of this horrible event Miranda finds a place where she belongs, a place where she can grow stronger, a place where she feels safe, and a place where her eyes are forced wide open to things she didn't think are possible.

Part of the fun of this book is watching David and Miranda circle around each other, neither one of them not sure what to do about their feelings for the other. The other fun of this book was the world that is built, one that has violence at it's core, yet an odd geeky vibe with all the technology that if it was possible would be cool to have.

I think this book was a great introduction to this world and this series, I can't wait for the next one!
