Book 1, Lost Vegas Series. In post-apocalyptic America, five hundred years in the future, famine, war, and chaos have created a hell on earth. Outside the isolated city of Lost Vegas, violent skirmishes among the Native Americans – who have retaken their ancestral lands – claim lives by day, while ancient predators awakened during the Age of Darkness hunt humans by night. Inside the city, criminals, the impoverished, and the deformed are burned at the stake weekly.
Among those ruthless enough to survive is seventeen-year-old Aveline, a street rat skilled in fighting whose father runs the criminal underworld. On the night of her father’s unexpected death, a stranger offers to pay off her father’s debts, if she agrees to become the guardian of Tiana Hanover, the daughter of the most powerful man in Lost Vegas. Caught between her father’s debtors and his enemies, Aveline reluctantly accepts.
Expecting a pampered princess, Aveline soon discovers sheltered, sweet Tiana is little more than a slave – and harboring a secret the wealthy Hanover’s will kill to keep. Little does she know that her fate, and Tiana’s, have been bound since long before they met.
Will Aveline’s street smarts be enough to keep them both alive?
Lizzy Ford is fast becoming one of my favorite YA Fantasy authors. This is the third book I have read of hers and I've given all three 5 stars. Her stories are so creative that they pull me in and I devour them! I won't give my usual run down of what this book is about because I believe that will spoil it. You already learn enough in the synopsis. I will just say that Lizzy has created so many great characters in this book that she has me hooked. I can not wait to see how this story will unfold. On that note, this is the first in a continued story and does end on a cliffhanger.
