Goodreads synopsis: Seventeen-year old princess, Clara Williamson, lives an old-fashioned existence in a biosphere of the future.

Clara escapes tyranny only to discover the savages are not the only people who survived the cataclysmic events of one hundred forty years prior. 

Once Outside, Clara finds herself trapped, unable to return to the abusive life of the sphere while facing certain danger Outside.

Can Clara find love and freedom with the peril that threatens to consume her?


My thoughts: I was not exactly sure as to what to expect with this novel but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. This was a very well-written novel. I was blown away by the story and the way you were instantly connected to the characters and the trials they went through. I end up connecting with characters when I read books but never have I connected with them so soon when reading this book. Blodgett is able to write in a way that keeps the story fresh, original and even maintains the almost archaic tone throughout without straying into modernization or slang that some writers end up doing. You can tell that Blodgett put lots of love and time into this novel because of the way she has perfected the language which causes the reader to be transported to another world entirely.

This was more of a romance novel than suspense but it is still able capture the reader and create suspense in the characters actions and holding onto information until just the right moment. Usually, I really dislike romance novels but this one was able to capture my attention and keep me involved with just the right amount of passion and romance without making it mushy.

I love the fact that Blodgett does not leave the end of the novel hanging on for dear life but leaves it in such a way that it can be open for a sequel which makes you want more and want to see where the journey will go next.

I am very much looking forward to reading the sequel "The Savage Blood" and to see which man Clara chooses and what happens with the sphere and the evil Prince Fredrick.

I rate this book:
