Review: Rook

Sophia saves peoples from the the guillotine, leaving behind a red tip feather. This latest heist, sends up red flags.

Sophia's engage to marry in order to save her family. Her father's run the house into the ground and her brother won't be able to inherit without a large flow of cash. She doesn't even know the man, but she's willing to sacrifice her future happiness for brother.

But the powers that be are suspicious of her family and of her brother in particular. As the danger grows closer, Sophia isn't sure who to trust anymore. Everyone wants something from her. can she survive the game without losing the people that matter most to her?
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book - a dystopian re-imagined Scarlet Pimpernel. I loved Sophia's determination and her daring ideas. I love that she defied standards to help people escape death. I loved how the relationship between herself and Rene developed as they began to get to know each other and understand each other. They both had something to lose, which made them the perfect pair. I loved watching the romance between them grow. The danger and the action of this book kept me on the edge of my seat. 

Cover Thoughts: Perfect - I love the broken city of Paris.

Final Thoughts: A book that kept me at the edge of my seat while I sorted through the double-crossings and masks the characters wore to hide their true self. A broken world with bold characters and a strong romance.

A dystopian novel that's set in Paris sounds pretty awesome. It doesn't hurt that the cover is really cool! Is this a standalone?
