Warring families. Forbidden love. And danger they can't escape…
Daggers. Roses. Cowboys. Boat Men. Survivors of Earth's Last War, four "families" vie to rule the dreary streets of Rain City through violence and blood. Valencia Hara, Princess of the wealthy Black Roses, is raised in warrior ways with sharpened steel. But she is no ordinary Rose. She is Cursed—tainted with the ability to see seconds into the future…
To avenge his father's death, Sebastian Leold, of the rival gang Two Daggers, must face off against the Black Princess, he with his dagger, she with her katana sword. Yet a secret from a shared past leaves him unable to kill beautiful Valencia; nor can she kill him. For they once knew each other beyond their blood feud…and they have more secrets in common than they know.
But in a world filled with vengeance and violence, there can be no room for love…

The thorn and the sinking stone
I had a hard time following the book at the beginning but thank goodness it got better! This book is very much like Romeo and Juliet except for the deaths, so it's not a huge tear jerker but it is set in the future where people who have been born into abilities are captured and mostly killed by the watchmen (government of sorts) . Then there are also gangs feuding ex daggers/stones vs black roses /thorns which have been at each other for ever. Now u get the Romeo Juliet bit. Overall I enjoyed this book.
