Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is. Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued. She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her. Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

I discovered this book on Pulse It, but didn’t have time to read it when it was available because my fiance was visiting. I finally sat down to read it recently, and I was not disappointed. It originally interested me because of the cover; I hardly even looked at the blurb, so I wasn't sure what I w...
I was really sad that I didn't get the edition with the really pretty cover. I loved the face and hair on the other cover. But this cover still looks cool. I loved Ari. She was so bad-ass and didn't take crap from everyone. She was strong and independent and she knew what she wanted to do. Yet she...
I liked it. Very much, I think. Maybe I will write more later but for now I'll say that I'm definitely reading the next book and I'm quite intrigued as to where the story will go.
