How I Got the Book: Review Copy

Summary of the Book:

They call me the Scorpion because they don’t know who I really am. All they know is that someone is stealing from people with excess to help people with nothing survive another day.

But then a trusted friend reveals who I am—“just” Tessa, “just” a girl—and sends me straight into the arms of the law. All those people I helped…couldn’t help me when I needed it.

In prison, I find an unlikely ally in Pike, who would have been my enemy on the outside. He represents everything I’m against. Luxury. Excess. The world immediately falling for his gorgeous smile. How he ended up in the dirty cell next to mine is a mystery, but he wants out as much as I do. Together, we have a real chance at escape.

With the sting of betrayal still fresh, Pike and I will seek revenge on those who wronged us. But uncovering all their secrets might turn deadly…

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is one of those books that you will want to read in one setting. In the city called Victor it is divided into two sides. The Lightside where they have enough to eat, have jobs and live in the light. The other is the Darkside where they have none of that and are struggling just to survive. The Scorpion is a person that is doing the best they can to helping those that live in the darkside get what they need. Then something happens and Scorpion is betrayed by those that she is doing her best to help and she ends up in a cell in prison. A rival of her in the next cell and they join forces to find a way out and find out who betrayed them. It was a crazy ride and wonderful worldbuilding that kept me turning the pages.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
