Blurb (from Goodreads):
For too long, Violet and the people of the outer circles of the Lone City have lived in service to the royalty of the Jewel. But now the secret society known as the Black Key is preparing to seize power.
And while Violet knows she is at the center of this rebellion, she has a more personal stake in it—her sister, Hazel, has been taken by the Duchess of the Lake. Now, after fighting so hard to escape the Jewel, Violet must do everything in her power to return to save not only Hazel, but the future of the Lone City.
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
This was a YA dystopian story, and the end to the series.
Violet took a lot of risks in this book, and really went out of her way to try and do what she thought was right. She did maybe take too many risks at times though, and put herself and other people in danger because of it.
The storyline in this was about Violet returning to the Jewel to try and save her sister, and working to take down the royalty from the inside. This was an enjoyable story but it did take me a while to get into it, we certainly got a lot of deaths thrown in towards the end to keep things a bit more interesting though.
The ending to this wasn’t quite as strong as I hoped, but it was a happy ending.
