Excellent! This book would be perfect for readers who like:
*swoon worthy romances
*underground revolutionaries/untidy political resolutions
*smart/independent/messy teen girl protagonists who make mistakes and learn stuff and set boundaries and are generally amazing
*evil twins

I loved the characters and the writing is beautiful, painting a vivid picture of an art deco-ish New York. There's a mix of sparkly glamorous magic and bloody conflict that works on many levels, and the story manages to feel timeless and really immediate at the same time. Highly recommend!

This was a truly touching book that I would definitely recommend to my peers. The ending was devastating yet eye opening at the same time. It was a great read.

More revolution than romance, this was an urban fantasy I thoroughly enjoyed. Sarah Rees Brennan can always be counted on for witty dialogue and plotlines that pull no punches, and this novel inspired by Dicken's A Tale of Two Cities was no exception. Though of course there is magic, this alternate world draws on modern political divisions based on inequality. The characters are complex, and Brennan doesn’t take the easy way out and fulfill the readers expectations, preferring to deliver a big dose of heartache.

Happiness is self-sabotage, a mean trick that your own mind plays on you.

It had been two years since I had dealt with anybody who wanted to hurt someone I loved, and I had forgotten how to bear it.
