Summary / Annotation
A well-written YA dystopian submitted by abenson on June 21, 2016, 7:00pm I really enjoyed this book - I thought Sabaa Tahir wrote a compelling story set in an interesting universe meant to resemble a dystopian-esque ancient Rome. The story features quite a bit of violence which would not be appropriate foryounger readers. I thought the characters and storyline were well developed, but my only complaint is that there was the standard YA love triangle, which I think is overdone/takes away from the meaningful parts of the story. Other than that, an enjoyable and intriguing read I would recommend for older students as well as adults.
