All Echo has ever wanted was to be free and be able to make her own decisions. But with her being a princess it is impossible. The kingdom has been divided in to Hunters and Warriors, who if caught will have to fight to the death in the arena. Echo doesn't want to be a part of this life any more and her running away leads her to Ayden. Ayden is a Hunter and doesn't want anything to do with Echo. He thinks she is just a stuck up princess. When he gets to know her, she is nothing like he thought. Echo finds her self falling for the enemy and wouldn't have it any other way. What will Echo and Ayden do to be together and what will happen b/c of it.
This book was very good. It had me entrapped until the very end. My only regret had to be stooping the boo and studying for finals LOL I love books that don’t have the insta-love, but rather both of them getting to know each other. This book was like that. The Hunters and Warriors intrigued me as well. The Hunters when they get a certain age get tattoos of their origin…I think that’s how it goes. I know it comes from the father and it is passed on. There wasn’t really a lot about the Warriors and I hope to learn more about them. I loved the whole forbidden romance. No, it’s nothing new with a princess falling in love with a peasant, but under the circumstance they were in it was great. The world building was great and I could see everything clearly and the characters well developed. I’m really in to this book and can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
Echo: I thought that she was a well enough character. I really didn’t like her in the beginning. I just thought she complained a lot. I know I would be the same way so I can’t judge. There was a certain part in the book where I was like grow up. She wants to be a warrior, but there she was crying day after day. By the end I think that she finally came to terms with everything and I think she will be a very strong character in the next book.
Ayden: I like I was enamored with him from the beginning. All Echo had to do was describe his eyes and I was caught. LOL He also was surrounded in mystery. How did a Hunter come to work for a King? Where did he come from? I wanted to know everything about him in clothes and out…..Oops I should probably take that out. LOL ;)
Overall, this book is about the start of a rebellion and finding out how much you would sacrifice for love.
It has all the elements of a good story, but needs a little something to push it over the edge.
