About the book:
Riana has learned how to stay out of trouble. She spends her days studying written texts in the government’s Office of Readers, and she spends her nights taking care of her sick sister. She always—always—follows the rules. Despite her low profile, she has mysteriously become a target. Someone has kidnapped her sister. Someone else is trying to kill her. And someone has sent a Soul-Breather to beguile her out of her secrets.

Her help comes from the mythic leader of an underground rebel movement. A man who used to be her friend. A man who has silently loved her for years. He disappeared from her life without a word, and now he expects her to trust him again.
Then there’s the Soul-Breather, a man who can taste her spirit with only a touch. He makes her feel things she’s never experienced before, but she doesn’t know if the feelings are real. Hired to deceive and betray her, he offers to help her instead.

Without both men, she can’t rescue her sister. And she can’t discover the world-changing knowledge—buried in her memory—that has made her a target in the first place.

My thoughts:
I love this book! It is completely amazing and totally different. This story takes place in a different kind of world where the people live their lives in an iron grip by the government. I just totally love this story with the rebels and the spies and the girl in the middle who just really wants to be left alone and live in peace. Easier said then done like they say. This is a story that will keep you on your toes and will have you guessing during the book. Who is the bad guy in this story? When I read this book I lived in it. I read it on my way to work on the bus and while I walked, while I ate and during my brake. My phone (where I read the book) was glued to my hand!

I love the characters in this book! Riana just wants to be left a lone. to live her life taking care of her sister without any trouble from the government or the rebels. But neither of them will leave her alone. They both wants something from her. She might not realise it but Riana is a really strong young woman who does not brake down easily!

And of course we have a hottie in the story! The soul breather! (I love that concept by the way) If you want do drool, well then you should read this. He acts all though and non caring but deep down he is a softie at least when it comes to Riana. And the chemistry between him and Riana is... wow. Some people just know how to write about that chemistry, that feeling between two people so good that you can see it and feel it like it was happening to you and not the characters in the book and Noel knows what she is doing that is for sure!

We also have the rebel, the long lost friend with the biggest crush ever on Riana! There she is, i the middle by two really different guys! One with eyes only for her and one who always acts for the greater good of others.

The plot is really good and you will keep guessing for a long time in this book. There was no cliff hanger in the end but who needs it after a story that good? I can´t wait for the second book in this series that will be released in December!!!!!!

You have to read this one! I mean it!
