Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

This is one of many series I heard so much about that I had to see what all the fuss is about.

And I must say that the first half of the book I kept asking myself why why why. The book was written so well that not only Juliette felt tortured but I did as well. The writing was tricky good , I wanted to quit but I couldn’t, It just kept me glued to the pages pages pages. And about half way through I really liked it and it really changed for the better.

For a second I thought we had insta love story and it sort of was but also not. It made it more interesting and also gave you more history of both of them.

Juliette was a bit annoying annoying annoying , but as we go on she gets more likeable and I really liked her towards the end for the most part. It seemed like she needed a purpose to stand up and fight and I was cheering her on when she finally did.

I was pretty indifferent towards Adam , I didn’t love him but also didn’t hate him, he is just kind of there to me. I hope that will change later on.

Waren on the other hand… I LOVED him …. I loved the freaking villain, he is bad and he is evil and should be put down but man there was something about him that I loved. Maybe that he was honest about shit.

Once we met Kenji I loved it, I also really enjoyed him so much, he gave this dark world some humor that is much needed. Because neither Adam nor are Juliette all that funny but that is also understandable.

I didn’t really see the end coming and yet I did, I figured something like that but not to that extent and I’m curious to see what happens next.  I just hope the romance doesn’t take away from the story.

Overall the book is pretty good once you get the first half I thought and I rate it 3★  and since I already own book two and tree I will at least start with book two right away.
