There is no such thing as happily ever after. Everything Charlotte Winston thought she knew has been thrown out the window. From the moment she opens her eyes, the world she remembered ceases to exist, and in its place is a post-apocalyptic realm filled with unimaginable dangers. And one very smoking hot guy who has an uncanny ability to make her blood sing, then boil in a blink of an eye. Dash Darhk is everything her parents would hate. He's six feet and two inches of dark temptation and a killer smile, that's surely left a stream of broken hearts in his wake. But her parents are nowhere to be found. Charlotte is alone in this new world. Destroyed by a toxic mist, the land isn't the only thing altered, but the inhabitants as well. As Charlotte begins the hunt for her family, gifts she's never fathom awake inside her. And with the gifts come problems. Enormous ones. Charlotte is running out of options and places to hide. If she can't figure out who to trust-and fast-she will lose more than her heart. Fans of Hunger Games, The 100, and Divergent will fall in love with Slumber.
How many colors does a rainbow have - or what are you capable of once the mist has worked its magic?
Wow, I really enjoyed reading this book!
When I started to read the book, I put it down very soon because I just couldn't get into it. The next time I tried to read it - I didn't put it down till I had read the very last page.
Okay, there were times where I could have thrown my reader away because I was so furious and times were I was really, really upset but once I'd got into the story, it just kept me glued to the reader. Captivating and original and at the same time well written with a great story line - sounds good? Read it! It is that good!
When Charlotte wakes up "Snow White-stylish", everything is different. More than a hundred years have passed since the mist invaded the world and the world has changed - and not only the world, Charlotte herself is different. But, well, first of all, she has to survive traveling in this new world with Dash at her side, without getting her heart broken! Okay, that may not be the most important part, considering the fact that they are fighting to survive and are hunted by the Night Guard while searching for Charlotte's family but believe me, it might just turn out to be the most difficult part...
I loved the story and I loved that characters and I definitely can't wait to read the next book in the series! My first book by J.L. Weil but not my last one!
