The truth will test you. For fans of Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games, high fantasy and dystopia meet in this high-stakes tale of a civilization built on lies and the girl who single-handedly brings it down. When Eva's twin brother, Eamon, falls to his death just a few months before he is due to participate in the Testing, no one expects Eva to take his place. She's a Maiden, slated for embroidery classes, curtseys, and soon a prestigious marriage befitting the daughter of an Aerie ruler. But Eva insists on honoring her brother by becoming a Testor. After all, she wouldn't be the first Maiden to Test-just the first in 150 years. Eva knows the Testing is no dance class. Gallant Testors train for their entire lives to search icy wastelands for Relics: artifacts of the corrupt civilization that existed before the Healing drowned the world. Out in the Boundary Lands, Eva must rely on every moment of the lightning-quick training she received from Lukas, her servant, a Boundary native and her closest friend now that Eamon is gone. But there are threats in the Testing beyond what Lukas could have prepared her for. And no one could have imagined the danger Eva unleashes when she discovers a Relic that shakes the Aerie to its core.

The book seems to be nicely written but the narrator is so awful I couldn't sink into it. Her voice is pleasant enough but the way she reads is as though she is trying to do a comical Captain Kirk imitation. It's rather embarrassing to listen to...one wonders what she could be going for, how she could possibly think that disjointed pauses and sudden inflated emphasis could add anything to a text? I got through the first couple chapters hoping it was a wayward attempt at character-specific stylings, but no - she is just really bad at reading stories out loud. ...makes me wonder what that job must pay...
