The Blurb: A thrilling, futuristic sci-fi novel set in a unique and thought-provoking world, from author Shannon Duffy.

Desiree Six (because she was born on a Friday) believes in everything the Protectorate stands for. She likes the safety and security of having her entire life planned out—her career, her mate, even the date of her death. She doesn't even think to question when Darian, her childhood friend and neighbor, is convicted of murdering his parents. They had seemed like such a loving family. But if he was convicted, then he must have done it.

Then Darian shows up in her room late one night. He has escaped from the Terrorscape—a nightmare machine used to punish all Noncompliants—and needs Desiree's help. What he tells her rocks her world to its core and makes her doubt everything she's ever been told. With this new information, will Desiree and Darian be able to escape the Protectorate before it's too late
I was fortunate enough to be given a free copy by Entangled Teen and Ellie Mchanon, even though this has been published i couldn't wait to read it. From the first sentence i was hooked and couldn't put this book down, even though i hated when Desiree acted like a sheep beliving everything. I Enjoyed this whole world, makes you think about our government. It puts a whole new twist on controlling people, through dreams just take it to a whole new level.

The romance was cute but i wasn't flailing over it, i was more focused on the story and that's rare but i loved it. i felt like i was in the dreamscape along with them and i can't wait to go back.
This is a must read and i need everyone if they haven't to check it out after reading my review.
