Emerald Hayden lives in the City of Centsia, a half-winged among the other walkers. She has no family, friends, or food: only a grim future filled with tiresome labor in the upper level’s factories. But everything changes when she meets Dusk, a winged from the place that she previously scorned. He opens her eyes to a new possibility: the possibility of the unity of winged and walkers, of freedom, and of love. Together, they decide to challenge the upper level’s supreme, winged council. But when a friend betrays them, they must choose whether to sacrifice their beliefs and save their own lives, or to remain along the thin line that divides the city in two. Success could mean liberty; failure, death.
My Rating: 3/5
I received this book for review from the author. The author's website can be found here.
This book was way shorter than what it felt like. There was an amazing amount of depth in only 92 pages.
The world building could have been better, but I was able to grasp it the further I progressed with the story.
The characters were well portrayed especially Emerald. Her relationship with all characters especially her father and Dusk were interesting.
