Review - This is YA with a difference, although my YA reading isn't very wide yet. I liked the start of the book where the evil are truly evil! In the 'real' world we are treated to a life which tackles a wide range of emotions and in that sense makes a good YA read. A mix of real and 'other worldly' woven together. We get glimpses into our young central character's past life with some true historical facts thrown in to make interesting reading. It's a gripping read which will keep you on your toes. Well rounded characterisations with some asking the question which side are they really on? Book 2 Paradox - Progeny Of Innocence is out this month and I cannot wait to see how the series develops. 3*
