I couldn't put this book down and am in constant awe of N.K. Jemison's world-building and character development. N.K. Jemison masterfully crafts this story and makes you truly feel for the characters. Its nonstop action will keep you up at night just wondering how it will end. A riveting story of what a woman must do to survive and protect her children in a world that forbids her existence and uses her power to benefit themselves. The only way to stop them is to fight.
