Summary of the Book:

In a world where the Roman Empire never fell, two starcrossed lovers fight to ignite the spark of rebellion…

Londinium, the last stronghold of the Romans left in Britannia, remains in a delicate state of peace with the ancient kingdoms that surround it. As the only daughter of a powerful merchant, Cassandra is betrothed to Marcus, the most eligible bachelor in the city.

But then she meets Devyn, the boy with the strange midnight eyes searching for a girl with magic in her blood.

A boy who will make her believe in soulmates…

When a mysterious sickness starts to leech the life from citizens with Celtic power lying dormant in their veins, the imperial council sets their schemes in motion. And so Cassandra must make a choice: the Code or Chaos, science or sorcery, Marcus or Devyn?

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I am not sure if the comparison this and the Hunger Games. I know that is takes place in an alternate timeline of Britain and the gap between the rich and the poor is huge. Cassandra did not come off as a very likable characters. I did like the history and the world description. I know this is the first book in a series. I know there must be more to this series. She was paired with a guy when she was twelve but she met another. This is changing her life. There are a lot of secrets and mistruths.

My Rating of the Book: 3 Stars
