Goodreads:  Lily Atwood lives in what used to be called Washington, D.C. Her father is one of the most powerful men in the world, having been a vital part of rebuilding and reuniting humanity after the war that killed over five billion people. Now he’s running to be one of its leaders.

But in the rediscovered peace on Earth, a new enemy has risen. They call themselves the Revealed – a powerful underground organization that has been kidnapping 18 year olds across the globe without reservation. No one knows why they are kidnapping these teens, but it’s clear something is different about these people. They can set fires with a snap of their fingers and create a wind strong enough to barrel over a tree with a flick of their wrist. No one has been able to stop them, and they have targeted Lily as their next victim.

But Lily has waited too long to break free from her father’s shadow to let some rebel organization just ruin everything. Not without a fight.

Kritters Thoughts:  Lily is the daughter of a Presidential candidate, but not like in the world we live in today.  A war has occurred and the United States looks very different.  Her father could be the first President after this war has ended and a huge weight will be on his shoulders as he guides the country into its next chapter.  At the same time, there is a group that kidnaps 18 years old and they are never heard from again - as luck would have it Lily is 18 years old and lives in fear of being kidnapped.

What a fantastic action packed book!  From the beginning, I was invested in Lily's story and wanted to know where her story would lead.  Of course, there is a twist and I wouldn't spoil it, but I love where the story went.

I loved there was a hint at romance, but unlike some other YA dystopianish books the romance takes too much space, this was spot on!  I have my fingers crossed for a sequel or two!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
