My Review:
This was a really good introduction to this series. The author created a great world, and I was lost in her imagination. I liked that the science fiction aspect of a dome is easy to believe. However the author added great characters, a feeling of doing whats right, and of course some bad guys. I was really glad that there was a list at the end of the book with names and meanings. The end was a cliffhanger and I am glad that I can dive right into part two. Teodor and Guy are so different that it is interesting to read how they each think and act. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are all my own.
