When Juneau's clan disappeared, she lost so much more than her friends and family. She soon discovered everything she thought she knew about her life was a lie. Her people's gifts were actually secret abilities that others wanted, desperately enough to kidnap an entire village.
Juneau and her new companion Miles's cross-country journey to find her clan has led them to a game preserve in New Mexico. Now Juneau's people are finally within reach, and she will stop at nothing to save them. But she has a target on her back too, because unbeknownst to her she is the key to unlocking everything. To rescue her people - and herself - Juneau must discover what she, and her abilities, are truly capable of.
The best thing about this book is Miles. He's hilarious and I fell in love with him. And I love love love his relationship with Juneau. Sweet, but still filled with banter. They work together, they trust each other, they make a great team. How refreshing.
"Just. Wow. This girl is so confident. Capable. Self-reliant. And generally kick-ass. I wonder what she could ever see in me. 'Maybe, once I'm unparalyzed, I could impress you with my mad video game skills,' I offer."
Read this duology! It's amazing and it has the perfect ending.
