Aria West: If I get out of here alive, I am never to going to let myself feel so powerless ever again
Jai Iyeroy: Everything in my past has lead up to this moment, for I am sworn to protect this city.
Three years ago Jai allowed the only woman he loved to walk out of his life. But Aria’s back now. Except her life is in danger, and this time Jai will do anything, even break his vow to protect his city, to keep her safe.
Set in a near-future where successive economic downturns in the West have resulted in refugees seeking shelter in the East
Women that you love or a promise you have to your mother before her death? This is Jai’s question for well 80% of book.
We meet Jai as young boy, still not an adult, he tries to find his place in this dystopian and tough world, for Ruby’s son it won’t be that easy. After 3 ,years he is an adult who knows his place but still feel something to the girl he met 3 years ago.
Aria was created brilliantly. What she felt in good or bad moments was described that way i could imagine it sometimes as my emotions. The way she treat Jai after 3 years was do real not artificial like i read somewhere.
I was very sad for Maya she has chosen other path than i thought. There was also a game for being a Mayor of Bombay 🙂
I want to read more of your works Laxmi!!
In general: very good book to read
Recommendation: if you like romance; dystopian worlds, shifters (not as main characters) this is book for you 🙂
I was given arc in exchange for honest review 🙂
