After escaping her kidnappers and destroying the black market where she was held captive, all Nita wants is to find a way to live her life without looking over her shoulder.

Review

5 Stars

Oh my. Where do I even begin with this fantastically gory and dark YA Fantasy. This book picks up right where Not Even Bones left off and just gets more and more intense. If you have a weak stomach I wouldn’t recommend this read but if you like all things dark and dangerous than you’ll love this book!

Nita is such an interesting character. She’s been raised by a mother who relied on her dissection skills and was completely non-emotional. Now that she’s escaped the Black Market and ended up in the protection of INHUP, she’s on a path of revenge and vengeance. She’s so scary at times and does not always think through her plans before she takes them out. You will definitely question her morals throughout the book but by the end she’s finally figuring out what she needs to do to get what she wants, a notoriety that’ll make people leave her along.

Kovit. I love him. He’s a “monster” in every sense of the word but he also has rules that he doesn’t like to break. Riding this crazy train with Nita has caused him to question himself and often doubts whether Nita can be a true friend to him despite how scary he can be. The two of them have a chemistry that I love and it was so fun seeing them grow together from book one to book two.

This book is so dark from the first page to the last. It’s gory and fun. The creatures that you meet will make you question whether or not monsters can be trusted. I enjoyed every minute of it!

  1. Trading magical self-healers on the black market? That’s despicable! This sounds like an exciting read!
