My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Synopsis:She’ll give in to the darkest power to gain their freedom.
Five years ago, Lawrence Kincade walked away from the underground resistance, having lost all she loved in the fight against the Party—her friends, her family, her freedom to use her magical ability. Everything.
Since then, she's been in hiding, trying to come to terms with living outside a society that now reviles everything she values. But when she learns the Party has reinstated the extermination policy in the Purity Camps, she realizes she can no longer remain apart from the fight.
As Lawrence attempts to rejoin and revitalize the resistance she abandoned, she must once again seek out allies, often in unexpected places. With the help of a surprisingly sexy shifter who prowls the streets of post-apocalyptic Birmingham, Alabama, she'll have to deal with the last place she ever wanted to end up, and the first on the Party's list to be eradicated: Purity Camp D.
With a little luck and a lot of work, maybe she can save the prisoners using her own brand of Underground Magic.
My Thoughts:Cover/Title: The cover is ok but the title is what drew me in this time. I couldn't wait to read this one.
Characters:Lawrence (although saddled with a very male name) is a heroine that I can appreciate. She can kick ass but still care about people deeply.
Plot: Lawrence left the resistance years ago but is drawn back into it when extermination resumes in the Purity Camps. She is desperate to save her friends, both old and new. She makes new alliances and gets to work.
Overall: This is a great start to a new series. I love reading about shifters that actually shift. Lawrence is an interesting change from the typical witch so I enjoyed learning about her. I love that the book wrapped up but left just enough to make the reader want to read more. I am hoping there is a book 2 in the future.
