A nightmare as the journey brings her face to face with the brutal reality of a war she’s only read about Observing from the safety of a heli plane Vaela is forever changed by the bloody battle waging far beneath her And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent Vaela finds herself much closer to danger than she’d ever imagined Starving alone and lost in the middle of a war zone Vaela must try to find a way home but first she must survive.. Note This book is being revised based on feedback from marginalized voices which is great I have not yet read the revised version If you re interested in these issues please take some time to listen to and consider the varied opinions and experiences of marginalized voices before coming to any conclusions Previous ReviewThe best word I can think of to describe this book is POWERFUL Because it s powerful on every levelIt s powerful on a sentence level There are so many lines that jump out as deep and profound and terribly beautiful Like I feel like a fool having somehow failed to ever mark the difference between spectacle and death andBut one cannot stay forever in the eclipse of tragedy and though I try to avoid both the darkness and the light each waits for me in turnIt s powerful on a scene level There were multiple times where I had to stop and read a paragraph or a scene over and over because it was so moving and thought provokingAnd it s powerful on a story level When high society cartographer Vaela Sun is stranded alone on the isolated war torn continent she is exposed to war for the first time in her life And discovers along with the reader that war isn t a spectacle It s a brutal complicated morally complex terrible thing And the same way its heaviness impacts Vaela the weight of it sits on your mind and your heart long after you ve finished readingThis is a book that ll have you turning the pages frantically to see what happens next It s a book that ll make your heart go mushy as you and the characters fall in love It s a book you ll be excited to read But it s also a book that ll make you want to be better To do To try harder And that s a powerful thing
