Another utopian book but in modern terms. Good suspenseful read. Nice plot twists and relatable characters. I really hope she writes a sequel to this.

I love the new look on tattoos. The process of marking/inking one achievements and sins is interesting, but also beautiful. As someone who adores tattoos herself, I love reading about different outlooks on the process of inking ones skin. I absolutely didn't see the WHOLE twist coming, but when it came, you can't help but go, "Oh!"
