Matthew has loved Ariel from the moment he found her in the tunnels, her bee's wings falling away. They live in Safe, an underground refuge for those fleeing the city Above—like Whisper, who speaks to ghosts, and Jack Flash, who can shoot lightning from his fingers.
But one terrifying night, an old enemy invades Safe with an army of shadows, and only Matthew, Ariel, and a few friends escape Above. As Matthew unravels the mystery of Safe's history and the shadows' attack, he realizes he must find a way to remake his home—not just for himself, but for Ariel, who needs him more than ever before.
This book has been in my TBR sights for awhile now. From the few Pre-release reviews I have read I admit I am super excited. Anytime an Author can put their own unique spin on the Dystopian genre that I love its worth at least giving the book a second glance. Plus look at the cover its gorgeous. How can you not at least be a little curious based on it.
