At the center of the story are two young adults at the brink of discovering who they really are: Brea, a Second with a stubborn streak and sass as well as smartness, and Jax, a Gatekeeper who’s about to have his world turned upside down. I liked it immensely that Brea wasn’t portrayed as a weakling, though I’d have loved to see even more of her special powers. She always stood up to Jax and held her ground, and even though Jax was also a hero full of strength and determination, he was by no means a stereotypical alpha hero. I found the Elders fascinating too, especially after their secret was revealed.
The book ends with a ‘happy for now’ and a cliffhanger, but it’s more than just a teaser because it has a strong message to convey. Beneath the story of two people forced to bond and realizing there is more than physical attraction and oppressive rules, there is a lot that can be read between the lines: criticism of society, of a select few being blessed with everything while others are expected to blindly obey, thoughts on abortion, brainwashing and relationships, and also advice to find one’s true destination and soulmate and to believe in the power of love.
The characters in this book are developed and you want to cheer for them . Jax is an alpha male and is trying to keep Brea safe but he is so block headed, you kind of want to slap him a few times . Brea is a strong girl but she also has a vulnerability to her , she has basically been lied to for most of her life . She doesn't want to be deemed second class and she wants to fight it all . When they are together there is an attraction and there is a need and a want . They both can't deny . The rest of the cast of characters is Declan and Gabrielle Jax's brother and sister . Then we have the elders who you really can't trust at all . They seem nice but well you know the saying never trust an nice guy wearing white .
I truly enjoyed this book but there were a few times where I felt it just a little confusing and I had a hard time figuring it out . Other then that I liked the idea and the story read fast . I started it this morning and had it read by this afternoon . I would add this book to your summer reading list
