Saba, her twin brother Lugh and little sister Emmi have lived a secluded life with their father in the desert. Until one day when a group of men arrive, kill her father and kidnap Lugh. With nothing else to loose, Saba and Emmi set off on an epic quest to find and rescue their brother. Along the way Saba is forced to cage fight, meets the handsome Jack and joins forces with a group of women who call themselves the Free Hawks. This fast paced, action packed novel could stand on it’s own, but it is the first of a trilogy (and already optioned for a movie). Fans of Hunger Games, Graceling and Divergent will likely devour and love this series too. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve
