In the opening of the story, Rhine is kidnapped and locked up in a mansion to wed wealthy Lindon with two other young girls (yes, this is a polygamous relationship), servants and creepy father-in-law. She desperately wants to escape but knows it will take time. While working out the details, she finds solace in a servant who helps to form the story's love triangle.
I found this book to be interesting but a little strange. The premise is hard to believe and a well-written dystopian novel should be believable. That's one of the things that makes them so hard to resist! Despite this I do want to know how everything turns out. I really like Rhine and want her to plans to succeed. I also want to know exactly what could possibly save the children of this future world. I have a very strong inkling that it has to do with Rhine's genetics. It's just too bad I have to read two more books to get there.
Check it out and let me know what you think!
