Ohmysweetgoodness this was an absolutelly brilliant book! I mean I was laughing and scowling...and giggling, which is so unlike me! I loved this book so much and you must MUST read it!
Nat is marked but she wears contacts to conceal what she is as she works for a casino as a blackjack dealer. Pretty sweet gig till she realized that the stone another coworker gave her is dangerous in the wrong hands. When that coworker is killed she knows she must flee or risk sharing the same fate.
So she enlist the help of Wes and his men to get her over the fence and to 'the Blue'. They don't know that is where she is heading but they suspect since it is everyone's dream to find 'the Blue', but it's just a myth. No one actually believes in it anymore.
Together they encounter hunters, polarbears, soldiers, Thrillers, and pirates, only to evade capture each time. Nat and Wes begin to grow attached even after he discovers she is marked. (Awww how sweet!) They meet some people who were stranded in a sinking ship and one of them is marked while the other are smallmen (no joke, that's what they call them!).
When pirates capture them all they are forced into cells to await the auction block. Wes and Nat form a plan but when the captain of the ship learns the way to the Blue it is up to Nat to stop him. After all it was what she was born to do.
Will she be able to come to grips with what she is? Who will suffer in the end? What will happen to Nat and Wes? Will they really reach the Blue?
Ahhh I loved it and though I pretty much guessed what was going to happen I still enjoyed myself! It is a must read! No joke! Bohobooknerd you had better read this book and get back to me! :D
