Winter Young is a pop star who gets recruited by Panacea for a secret mission to stop Eli Morrison, an evil businessman who is extremely powerful. He works with Sydney who goes undercover as Winter's bodyguard named "Ashley." I didn't hear about this book before I picked it up from the library and I must say that I was very impressed. The action felt really realistic and I liked the tension in the story since Winter is a rookie but has a lot of responsibility as a spy even without training. Occasionally the twists were a bit confusing, but I think I could see everything through Winter's eyes since Marie Lu is a really good writer. The pacing is the only place where it lost half a star in my mind, however this book will really grab you even from the beginning. You could tell that the ending gave some opening for a sequel, so I look forward to reading the next one. 4.5/5 stars - SAPL Read It & Review Contributor
