Sephy is a Cross - a member of the dark-skinned ruling class. Callum is a nought - a 'colourless' member of the underclass who were once slaves to the Crosses.
The two have been friends since early childhood. But that's as far as it can go. Against a background of prejudice, distrust and mounting terrorist violence, a romance builds between Sephy and Callum - a romance that is to lead both of them into terrible danger . . .

I literally couldn't put this down. Brilliantly written and extremely thought provoking. Really questions the nature of social divisions in our society. A must read!!

Ok - I woke up at seven in the morning. I got out of bed eleven hours later because I had been reading this book for all that time. Of all things, I certainly did not expect what happened at the end of this book. I actually cried. This book is unputdownable, if that's even a word. One of my favourite books of all time.
I read this book within 5 hours, could not put it down! The ending reduced me to tears, i cried for about half an hour after reading this! I've read a lot of good books in the past but none where I have felt so connected to.
A must read for anyone!
