What if the Devil doesn't know he’s the Devil?
This is the question Veronica “Ronnie” Billings poses to Phoenix, her sworn enemy, the leader of the Peaceful Revolution, and the one she loves.
Kidnapped by Phoenix's rebels, Ronnie learns how wrong she has been. She had no idea that her patriotism was wasted on a corrupt government. Ronnie was proud to be a Leader; taking hundreds of harvested girls to the Letting facility. After all, she was saving them from future Couplings and bringing them to the safety of the New World. Or so she thought…
Confused, Ronnie realizes the only way to discover the truth is to trust her heart. Together, Phoenix and Ronnie devise a plan to stop their corrupt government and preempt the dangerous rebel coup which is approaching. But when their plan goes awry, will Ronnie be strong enough to save Phoenix, her country, and herself?
Oh, I really enjoyed this book! It was creepy, and it had world that I would never want to live in, and it has the main character totally hidden away from the truth of what's going on-until she isn't. And her journey after that, it's pretty epic!
I feel sorry for Ronnie, because the truth's been kept from her, which has resulted in, when she thought she was doing good, she wasn't, and that's not a nice thing to learn, but yeah, she deals with, and then starts to work against the government!
The idea of Couplings, and Lettings, well, that's not creepy at all! Not! The thought of them just makes my skin crawl, because it's not real, it's not the truth, because what happens is much worse, and I feel bad for all the girls who went through that!
I enjoyed how Ronnie defeats the bad guys, it was a pretty epic ending, I know there were losses, but they were smaller then what they were defeating, so yeah, unfortunately, there are some things that can't win. But they did overcome the bad guys!
Really enjoyed this book, it was quite good, and there's talks of a sequel, yeah!

Given my love for cities and all that is gritty, my new obsession with trees really has me stumped. (Sorry.) Maybe it's because trees are the inspiration behind my new YA/NA novel, theLETTING.
Whatever the reason for my new infatuation, some things remain constant -- like my love for: coffee (although sadly, it's now decaf); yoga; Luna bars (I am petitioning for them to bring back Chocolate Raspberry!); running in my neighborhood; Hemingway; Bukowski... and, above all, my husband and my girls.
I am the author of the bestselling novel, Sleeping With Mortals: The Story of a New York Mistress, and I'm also a playwright. I have my B.A. in English and my M.A. in Theatre.
