Ari has never felt like she belonged. Her mother left her when she was young, so she has grown up in foster care. She has freakish silver hair, that somehow returns to the same color and length every time she tries to alter it. When she visits Rocquemore House to find out more about her mother, she learns that her mother has long been dead. In fact, she killed herself six months after leaving Ari.
Later, when Ari goes through her mother’s belongings, she finds a note. Her mother tells her to run. Ari has a choice to make. Does she follow the advice of her mother, or does she continue her quest to New 2 (what is left of New Orleans after two huge hurricanes)?
I enjoyed this book. In fact, I had a hard time setting it down. It has the right mix of post-apocalyptic and fantasy, with a hint of mythology thrown in. The teaser above doesn’t start to scratch the surface of Ari’s adventures. In fact, right after where I left off, her life gets very interesting.
I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the second book in the series to our library.
