Product Description

Product Description

Five years ago, catastrophic earthquakes, massive floods, and violent storms caused the collapse of the global economy and a massive political upheaval. In a world thrown into chaos after The Great Fall, greedy CEO’s enforce the Golden Rule—whoever has the most gold, rules the land. Any hint of rebellion against the domineering government ends in either death or imprisonment.

Fiery and beautiful Cadence O’Bryant has trouble keeping silent against the new order, a trait that often lands her in trouble. Having lost her parents to rebellion, her life now is about survival. She despises the new order of life and wishes for time to turn back to when life held order, and love was a possibility, not an impossible dream. Her worst nightmare comes in the form of the Emperor’s decree—all young women are to compete in a competition of beauty, intelligence, and most of all obedience, for his son, Kellan’s, hand in marriage. Cadence fears not only to lose herself to the male dominated society that now prevails, but also that hers and her brother, Griffin’s, secret will be revealed, which would be a death sentence.

Determined and handsome Micah Greene harbors an even deeper secret than the fact he is in love with his best friend’s sister, Cadence. The secret is one his father died to protect, but it’s also one that unites him to Cadence and their cause. On the eve of their separation, Micah reveals his heart to Cadence. But is it too late? Is it possible he might lose the woman he loves to his nemesis, Kellan Quinn, the Emperor’s son.

Will Cadence be chosen by Kellan, or will she be able to choose her future? Will Kellan’s sexy good looks and promise of stability tempt Cadence to fall for the future Emperor and hurt her one true friend? Passion is burning, but for whom will it burn the brightest for?

As revolution brews in the province, love may need to take a back seat. Will Cadence have the option to love either man, or will she have to fight for everything she’s ever loved, including her freedom?

HASH(0x9f332774) out of 5 stars Team Micah all the way! Nov. 27 2013
By lorraine M - Published on Amazon.com
I received arc for review.

3.5 stars ending felt unfinished.

This normally isn’t a genre I read but because Katie Ashley is one of my favorite
author’s I decided to dive in. One of my first thoughts was this is a good
read across the board, from teen through adult. It’s safe, no heavy romance or
sex scenes to worry about and yet it keeps you entertained.

We have Cadence the heroine who has two suitors. Micah, her brothers’ lifelong friend
and the Kellan son of the Emperor. I am definitely team Micah, he won me over
with his first kiss and quick humor.

The time period is set into the future, where a new world order is in place.
The old outdated Political system has been replaced by greedy rich CEO’s, and only
the rich have a place in society. Women of no class have been banned from education
and are objects for breeding.
Religion is a thing of the past, no longer practiced, except
by “The Believers “who are considered rebellious and should be imprisoned or put to death!

Not so different of our current times, so many government officials have banned religious
items displayed on public property and there has been talk about removing the word GOD from
our pledge of allegiance.
What next?

Kellan needs a wife and it is ordered; seventeen girls, age seventeen will audition in
a Pageant, Candence fears her secret will be revealed…she is a believer. As she gets
to know Kellan better she starts to “feel” something for him.

The story moved quickly and wrapped up with a dream. Epilogue was needed
as I still have many questions as to what happened to? and did?
HASH(0x9f332b7c) out of 5 stars Is there another book? Jan. 21 2014
By Di Covey - Published on Amazon.com
3.5 Stars

I have mixed feelings about this story.
KATIE ASHLEY, PLEASE TELL ME THERE WILL BE ANOTHER BOOK!?

This was great start, a good middle, but what happened to the end? Was it meant to end that way, or is there another book on the way?
I've read a few dystopian books, and I enjoyed them.
I was a bit shocked to see that Katie Ashley written one, I HAD TO HOP ON THIS!

I'll give you a little bit, not much, because I don't like spoilers.
Cadence is a seventeen year old girl living with her brother after a huge 'War' has taken place. A new order so to speak, where "believing" is outlawed.
This was all intriguing to me, I was sucked in. I actually read this in one day.
OK. THERE'S REBELS, SPIES, TRAITORS, WARS. I was fascinated, biting my nails.
There's also a tiny love triangle, not bad. It's okay, don't stray.
We get some action. I don't want to say. Anyway, right when the Stuff is about to hit the fan. THE END!
Let me be clear, you kinda get how the story is gonna go, but you don't.
I'm babbling.
This had the potential to be to be so much more! Not that I didn't like it, I just didn't get a conclusion that I would've liked.

HASH(0x9f76f6fc) out of 5 stars A Fantastic Must Read! Nov. 23 2013
By Kimberly Stewart/ Kimerin's Confessions of a Bibliophile - Published on Amazon.com
*THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*

I. Love. This. Book!!

I was drawn in from the very beginning. Cadence is a no nonsense, tell it like it is stereotypical red head. The problem with that is, she lives in a world where low class citizens, especially woman, do not have that right. Micah, her brothers best friend, has been harboring feelings for Cadence for who knows how long. However, he picks the absolute wring time to clue her in... The emperor, Richard Quinn, decides to hold a pageant of sorts to find his son, Kellan, a wife. Every girl in the province the age of seventeen is forced to enter. And Cadence, of course, is seventeen... Little does Cadence know, her brother had joined the rebels to fight against Richard and everything he stands for... Now here comes Kellan, oooooooo Kellan, gorgeous cocky arrogant.... the list goes on. I wanted to hate him BUT under everything, the guy has a heart of gold... And, of course, he too falls for our red headed heroine...

I literally could go on and on about this books and everything in it, but I don't want to give everything away. Bottom line.... I LOVE THIS BOOK!!

First off I'm a huge Katie fan...read and love all her books!! But something was missing in this story for me. The story felt really rushed and the love was so unbelievable. I couldn't relate to Cadence, thought she was selfish, whiny and didn't like her that much. I also didn't feel the connection between Cadence and Micah at all!! I actually felt a spark with Kellan and Cadence and thought this has potential to be a really great passionate love story!! Kellan had a really good heart and I love when the bad boy go good and wins the girl!! And then bam...she chooses Micah and is so in love within days and I'm like what?? I kept hoping she would go back to Kellan and almost stopped reading book I was so pissed off but it was 230 am and I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep if I didn't finish. I now wish I would have stopped because there really wasn't an ending or epilogue!!! Wtf? What happens to Kellan and his mom? What happens to Richard?? Is there going to be another book? So hoping another book that can redeem this one and I'm totally Team Kellan!!!
