About the Author
Carol Award winner and Christy Award finalist, Nadine Brandes is an adventurer, fusing authentic faith with bold imagination. She never received her Hogwarts letter, but rest assured she's no Muggle (and would have been in Ravenclaw House, thank you very much.)
This Harry Potter super-nerd has been known to eat an entire package of Oreos (family size) by herself, and watches Fiddler on the Roof at least once a year. She writes about brave living, finding purpose, and other worlds soaked in imagination. Her dystopian trilogy (The Out of Time Series) challenged her to pursue shalom, which is now her favorite word (followed closely by bumbershoot.)
When Nadine's not taste-testing a new chai or editing fantasy novels, she and her knight-in-shining armor (nickname: "hubby") are out pursuing adventures.

Parvin was so much more likable. I loved the first book, but she was so whiny in the first book. I’m so happy to see her progress significantly.
SOLOMON ...'swoon." Man I love his character.
I loved the message in this book! God can use you, even if you are week, maimed, whiny, timid, scared to death…Even if the world hates you. (or you just think the world hates you) God can use anyone for his glory. God can use your mistakes, God can use your weaknesses and make something amazing happen.
Again, this book is rather dark - ish. Definitely for teens who aren't easily frightened. Also, things can get very emotional.
Still I did NOT like her family (except maybe her father, but I'm still indecisive about him. Not a fan of the other ladies. Tawny - Gah. Maybe I didn't like her because Parvin didn't? who knows.
SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT
A few of my favorite scenes: When Parvin is being pelted with food and basically hated on, and when her father and Solomon rescue her and she's crying and she asks, why does she still have a deep love for these people, even when they hate her?? THAT was the turning point IMO for her character.
2nd favorite: when she was being choked to death and Solomon was literally crying as he tried to stop the guy from killing her. 'swoon".
Also, when he dove off the docks after the ship. AGAIN I love Solomon.
I definitely recommend this book!
Parvin continued to grow and struggle, and doesn't always make the smartest decisions. **SPOILER ALERT** After the Jude thing, I was hesitant to adore Hawke, although I already thought he was really sweet and noble. Yeah, well now he's freaking amazing! <3 I feel like Parvin's struggle with the Hawke brothers is realistic and not a love-triangle sort of "ugh." **SPOILER OVER**
Just when I thought the setting couldn't get cooler??? Yeah I loved all the geographical tidbits in this one. Lost Angel?? Yeah, that's not freaky in a dystopian story at all ... ;P
So this story had its own individual storyline, as everything begins to go even wronger. But it still tied in because Parvin is desperate to get back as the leader no one actually wants to listen to. The action scenes in the arctic wasteland are still what stick with me most after finishing the trilogy now. So. Cool.
And that ending?! Of course I'm going to keep reading o.o Thank goodness I'm not having to wait on book 3.
