Ren really captured me from the beginning of this story. Her situation and mode of survival made Ren interesting and easy to care about. I was intrigued by her backstory, her mother’s secret and the mystery of the Watch. It was fascinating to see what had happened to other cities after the Blood Plague as the group travelled. Ren grew as she found her dynamic within the group and learned more about her past and how to defend herself. For me, some of the travelling sections dragged a little for me. The story picked up again for me as Ren’s Watch began to show its potential. The ending threw me for a huge loop and ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, so I am really interested in the next book.
