Beyond the fence. I am still alive. Barely.
My name is Ivy Westfall. I am sixteen years old and a traitor. Three months ago, I was forced to marry the president’s son, Bishop Lattimer―as all daughters of the losing side of the war are sold off in marriage to the sons of the winners. But I was different. I had a mission-to kill Bishop.
Instead, I fell in love with him.
Now I am an outcast, left to survive the brutal savagery of the lands outside of civilization. Yet even out here, there is hope. There is life beyond the fence. But I can’t outrun my past. For my actions have set off a treasonous chain of events in Westfall that will change all of our fates―especially Bishop’s.
And this time, it is not enough to just survive… (Amazon)

Review: *Sigh* Was it really a year ago that I read the first book? Looking back on my review of The Book of Ivy, I was totally in love with the novel. It’s always a sad day, when a follow-up book just doesn’t cut it. I wanted to love Ivy with the same fervor, yet the plot seemed lacking. I’m not even totally sure why…Some words come to mind. Rushed. Unsatisfied. Shit Ending…
The characters weren’t as appealing as the first book. Ivy wasn’t as kick ass. Bishop was lukewarm. I didn’t totally fall in love with Ash, yet I wanted to learn more about Caleb. The entire thing was “just okay”.
…And then the ending could have been SO much more. So instead of mourning the fallen characters (no spoilers) I will just mourn the potential this book had…
I’ve grown accustomed to the stars above my head as I sleep, the ache in my muscles as we walk the land. The freedom that comes with defining your world instead of letting it define you.
