What I liked about the novel...
This was definitely one of those reads that had so many twist and turns and action packed that will hold your attention as you are reading this well written story. What a story of such pain that Amira had to endure in this game of chess. From the loss of her brother, close friends then joining 'La Famila' will she finally get the respect she deserves? Will this help her build up some confidence with killing abilities becoming more dangerous? This author does a good job at letting the reader feel Amira's pain in this urban fiction read. All the characters for the most point are a intriguing group and I will say a few did had me shaking my head. This author really gives the reader something to think about with the main character starting out very innocent but omg in the end Amira is one deadly....person to reckon with. I will stop here and say to find out what all the author has in store for Amira you will have to pick up the read to find out. In the end you will find out that you will have to go to the sequel to see what is next for Amira.
