How do you keep fighting when you've already been claimed?

When sixteen-year-old Elise is ripped from her home and taken to the royal palace as a permanent 'guest', she thinks her life is over.

Little does she know it has only just begun…

After befriending a group of other captives, including the headstrong Will, Elise finds herself swept away to a world she never knew existed—polished, sculpted, and refined until she can hardly recognize her own reflection. She should be happy to have escaped the poverty of her former life. But she knows a dark truth.

The palace is a dream on the surface, but a nightmare underneath.

With a dwindling population, the royals have imprisoned the teenagers to marry and breed. Only seven days remain of freedom before they will be selected by a courtier and forever claimed.

Danger lurks around every corner. The only chance of escape is death.

But when the day of the claiming finally arrives…the world will never be the same.

    Interesting. If you liked The Hunger Games or the Divergent series you might like this. My only criticism is that there was very little in the way of action. The entire book felt like it was giving the background for the rest of the story to come in later books.
  • Very engaging

    I read it from start to finish in one sitting. Very unique but a lot of unanswered questions.
  • Unoriginal

    By eirasaenzc00001
    Breezed through this book! Quite an easy (and short) read. However…. I just could not shake the feeling of having already read this exact story. This book had so many similarities to Wither by Lauren DeStefano and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. From similar names, to similar supporting characters, similar storyline, etc. I unfortunately read the reviews of the next few books that spoiled a major part of the series, so I might not continue reading.

    I liked the storyline, but it definitely needed some more fleshing out. Also I feel like the main character, we didn’t really get to know, she was just a really pretty what else. I know she survived her tow but there was no spark for survival besides keeping her head down and then randomly punching a guard? This has potential but definitely needs to be edited more.
