One hundred and fifty years ago, Earth was destroyed, and the remaining humans fled to the dusty red planet of Jutaire, where the only oxygen is manufactured, food is scarce, and death strikes often.
When Lissa's father discovers Earth still exists, she accidentally inhales the toxic air of Jutaire, and in one breath, discovers she isn't quite human.
Her father hangs for his discovery, and Lissa knows the Chancellors will come for her, for she saw the Earth that night too. With nothing to lose, she sets out to expose the truth. It isn't long before she meets Julian, a beautiful boy who can breathe the toxic air like she can - and shows her that the Jute, the original inhabitants of the planet, are more tangled in their lives than she knows.
But the Chancellors are only pawns in a greater game - one where the Jute control everything. Worse, the Jute plan to leave Jutaire for Earth, but to get there, they need her. And they'll stop at nothing until Lissa is in their clutches, even if they kill every human in the process.
The race for Earth has begun.

I was so lucky to become friends with Hafsah on twitter. She is an AMAZING writer! I mean, the blurb had me wrapped around the neck from the first moment I read it, and I HAD to ask for an ARC. And here I am, dreaming over the hang-over of it!!
This book was just UNBELIEVABLE!! The base of this story was a bit complicated, but once you start, you can not stop. Lissa is the main character. She is strong, brave, exactly my type of girl that I love to read about. She isn't quite human, in fact she is--oh no, I won't reveal it until you've read it. That means you can suffer with me!!
Julian is the "love interest". LOL! I LOVE HIM! I mean, he is everything I want my boyfriend (not like I have one, huh) to be like. He's kind, charming, caring and hot too. It's like, lying on a frying pan whenever Lissa talks to him. If I was Lissa, I would jump on him. But then he would think I was a weirdo, so no. LOL!
OOOhhh! I want, so bad, to reveal these other characters that I absolutely hate, love and like. But I can't, because then it would ruin the story. I'm sorry :(
The action scenes were AWESOME! No, another word. AWESOMESAUCE!! It was like being on a roller coaster. My hands and feet were twitching like MAD! I was practically on the floor after each action scene. It was just all so addicting.
Hafsah did an amazing job at creating up this world. And I hope she'll create up more. I seriously cannot wait for what she has in store next!!
