NOT ALL ARE FREE.
NOT ALL ARE EQUAL.
NOT ALL WILL BE SAVED.
 
Our world belongs to the Equals—aristocrats with magical gifts—and all commoners must serve them for ten years.
 
But behind the gates of England’s grandest estate lies a power that could break the world.
 
A girl thirsts for love and knowledge.
 
Abi is a servant to England’s most powerful family, but her spirit is free. So when she falls for one of their noble-born sons, Abi faces a terrible choice. Uncovering the family’s secrets might win her liberty—but will her heart pay the price?
 
A boy dreams of revolution.
 
Abi’s brother, Luke, is enslaved in a brutal factory town. Far from his family and cruelly oppressed, he makes friends whose ideals could cost him everything. Now Luke has discovered there may be a power even greater than magic: revolution.
 
And an aristocrat will remake the world with his dark gifts.
 
He is a shadow in the glittering world of the Equals, with mysterious powers no one else understands. But will he liberate—or destroy? (From Amazon)

*I received a free copy, in exchange for an honest review*

The Prologue had me sold, the first few chapters filled my curiosity, and then at some point, I found myself losing interest in this book. That’s not to say the writing wasn’t great, because it was. I just don’t think that this was the right book for me. There were so many characters, and so much depth to all of them, along with  strong story lines for them too. It was just a tad too hard to follow. However, I do believe this book will have a great following of fans.
