"MAGIC COMPELS. WE BLEED. The captivating dystopian trilogy that began with Gilded Cage continues. In a modern Britain where magic users control wealth, politics--and you--an uprising has been crushed. In its aftermath, two families will determine the country's fate. The ruthless Jardines make a play for ultimate power. And the Hadleys, once an ordinary family, must find the extraordinary strength to fight back. Abi Hadley is a fugitive. Her brother, Luke, a prisoner. Both will discover that in the darkest places, the human spirit shines brightest. Meanwhile, amid his family's intrigues, Silyen Jardine dreams of forgotten powers from an earlier age. As blood runs in the streets of London, all three will discover whether love and courage can ever be stronger than tyranny. How do you choose when you can't save everyone?"-- Provided by publisher.
"The sequel to Gilded Cage. The rebellion to free the lower classes from ten years of forced service to unfairly advantaged, magically powered rulers may have failed. A brother and sister, would-be revolutionaries--one imprisoned, the other desperate for aid-- have seen their magical allies stripped of their power, while the mysterious young aristocrat has revealed the incredible extent of his dark gifts"-- Provided by publisher.

The suspense of the place Like ended up in kept me interested. There are killings and some gore making it read as a dark fantasy.
The political parts really dragged along.
I read so much, I'll probably forget about the third book by the time it comes out and the library gets it in.

I enjoyed this book. It was actually quite different from the first which I liked. My only complaint is that there was a cliff hanger ending and the third book doesn't come out for several months. I would recommend this book for fans of dystopian novels.
