I read this book as part of my #yearofindiewomen. I read this book during Dewey's 24-Hour #readathon.
This was my least favorite in the Flamestone series. I suppose I just wanted more from it. I wanted more of Weslie and Antoine's experience with The Disgraced, and I wanted more of what lived in the upper parts of Selwyn. Hook did such an awesome job creating this world on the surface of Selwyn and deep below ground, I was really excited when they were going to go up into the mountains, but then I was disappointed when there was really nothing there. I wish there had been less of a focus on Charles and more on the world.
All of that being said, it didn't really take away from this series that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I will probably read more of Hook's work simply because I loved the world she built so much. It was a character unto itself.
So, in conclusion, if you want to go an epic fantastical journey to a new, beautiful, and frightening world, definitely pick up this series. It's fun and easy to read and really a good time.

Jaden has become a traitor to his settlement, turned over Wompitts greatest scientific mind to the Flamestone Society, in exchange for his mothers release only to be betrayed and cursed to the darkness. Bright lights cause him pain and the suns rays are toxic and will kill him. The best he can hope for now is to find his mother himself.
While he searches, he comes across more like him, The Disgraced. In danger of starvation and a fanatical leader they are doomed to the underground until a cure is found. What's worse, the guy he sold out, Antoine, is with them and he is not pleased to see Jaden.
Only a cure will free the Disgraced from their condition and Antoine and Weslie from their deal and escaping the depths of the tunnels, but finding it may prove too dangerous. But Jaden's not going to live the life of a coward anymore. He's going to help free the Disgraced and redeem himself even if it means his death.
This story picks up almost where Freed left off but focuses on Jaden after Garretts death and we get to see what happens with him instead of following Elaine as it is told from Jadens point of view.
Much of the story is of Jaden wondering through the tunnels in search of his mother and Elaine, or wondering through the woods and other landscape in search of a cure under the cover of darkness. When the action scenes do come up though they are really good and full of suspense and pretty detailed.
Hook is still the queen of the 'Plot Twist', with some outcomes, you kind of don't expect. Throw in the elements of a supposed cure, adventuring with the guy you betrayed, trying to evade the monsters of Selwyn and the crazy leader of the Disgraced, this results in an enjoyable companion book to the Flamestone Trilogy.
I was gifted a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Jaden is the traitor. He sold out Wompitt and the scientist of the group in exchange for his mother. He never got to see her, and he was tattooed with Slimestone which makes him like a Dweller -- unable to stand the sun and having to eat Flamestone.
He has a long road to his redemption -- having to find the Disgraced, dealing with a potential cure, and then risking his life (numerous times) to obtain the material needed for said cure, while traveling with those he betrayed. It's not an easy road, but they come to terms with each other and do what needs doing.
I for one was very happy to see him trying to be redeemed and to atone for what he'd done. The things he goes through added complexity to his journey, and naturally there were plot twists and things you did not see coming.
The only thing I wish was that there was a scene with Jaden SPOILER ALERT reuniting with his mother. /SPOILER ALERT. It would have been nice to see that -- what they say to each other and how it impacts him. After all, she was the reason why he betrayed Wompitt in the first place. That's what kept him going. That and his desire to no longer be traitor.
Jaden does get his redemption in the end and it's wonderful. This is a great companion novel to the trilogy, and fascinating to see things from his POV.
