I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.
My Review: This was a a difficult read for me. The back and forth between then and now became extreamely confusing, but do not let that stop you from going out and grabbing a copy when it hits shelves later this year. Lauren continues with an amazing story. In this book we, the reader are taken along on Lena's journey of self discovery and survival. Seeing how this book will not be available for several more months I will not spoil it for the readers who are anticipating the release. I will however tell you that several new characters are introduced and a few old characters make surprising appearances in the book. If you can overcome the layout you will not be disappointed in the story.
