Review: I am giving this book a three out of five. I did really like the book. I loved the main core group of characters and their relationships to each other. Khalida is really interesting. She finds out that she is not at all who she thought she was for her whole life and even though you can see she is overwhelmed by it all she still thinks of the people she loves that are around her and their well being above her own. The reason I gave this book a lower rating than I would like to is because of two things. The first being that the book started out with a prologue the left me confused as to why it was there at all until almost the very end of the book. The whole time I was reading I kept thinking back to it and wondering where it fit in. The second being that I disliked the ending very much, and not just because the book was over because it was a great story. It was a total cliff hanger, more so than just continuing to a second book. It was like it just ended. Other than those two things I did like the story.
