Summary: Seventeen-year-old Clark Treasure assumes the drink he stole off the captain is absinthe… until the chemicals in the liquid give him the ability to awaken the dead.
A great invention for creating perfect soldiers, yes, but Clark wants to live as a miner, not a slave to the army—or the deceased. On the run, Clark turns to his estranged, mining tycoon father for help. The Treasures welcome Clark with open arms, so he jumps at the chance to help them protect their ranch against Senator Horan, a man who hates anyone more powerful than he.
Sixteen-year-old Amethyst Treasure loathes the idea of spending the summer away from her bustling city life to rot on her father’s ranch, but when a handsome young man shows up claiming to be her secret half-brother, her curiosity is piqued. He’s clever, street smart, and has no qualms jumping into the brawl between the Treasures and Horans. Caught in the middle, Horan kidnaps Amethyst, and all she gets is this lousy bullet through her heart.
When Clark brings her back to life, however, the real action starts, and Amethyst joins him in his fight against the Horan clan—whatever the cost. Defeating the Horans may seem easy at first, but going up against men with the same fighting vengeance as Clark, and a Senator with power he’s obtained by brainwashing the masses?
Well, Amethyst’s boring summer at home has turned into an adventure on the run, chock full of intrigue, danger, love, and a mysterious boy named Clark.
My Review: Again, this is another review that should have been posted a month ago. This book was hella good, like once I started the book I could not put it down good. I really enjoyed this world and while this world is kinda dark, intense and scary… I secretly want to be a part of it.
The writing is beautiful the character development is amazing and as most of you know that is what I often require to make me happy. This book made me very happy. From the moment, I turned on my kindle I knew this was a book that I think the author secretly wrote for me. I mean she doesn’t know me or anything but she wrote it for me. This book was so good.
This book had adventure, danger and a whole lot of fun. I loved every single moment of this book, that even though I read it quite some time ago I still do not have a hard time recalling how fabulous this book is!
