A debut author’s darkly suspenseful take on New Adult romance--and a perfect read for fans of Veronica Roth's Divergent.
Twenty-two-year-old Evalyn Ibarra never expected to be an accused killer and experimental prison test subject. A year ago, she was a normal college student. Now she’s been sentenced to a month in the compass room—an advanced prison obstacle course designed by the government to execute justice.
If she survives, the world will know she’s innocent.
Locked up with nine notorious and potentially psychotic criminals, Evalyn must fight the prison and dismantle her past to stay alive. But the system prized for accuracy appears to be killing at random.
She doesn’t plan on making friends.
She doesn’t plan on falling in love, either.

Customer ReviewsSee All
This novel kept me riveted until I finished. The concept of fighting to the death is not new, but the way the story is presented is definitely unique. I've read some that compared it to The Hunger Games, and although I understand the correlation, there are many differences that make it an entirely different story.
I flipped page after page looking for a good place to stop for the night until I just accepted the fact I couldn't walk away until I saw the story through to the end. I'm anxious for the next book. The survivors deserve to have their stories told.
Heartpounding and Original
Read this book pretty much in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. It's fast paced, intriguing, and asks all the right questions without being pedantic enough to spoon feed the reader any clear answers. Though it has a very "Cabin in the Woods" feel to it, the book doesn't rip off anything - it pays homage to the greats of science fiction and horror instead.
Loved it. Seriously can't wait for the sequel.
A must read!!
If you loved Hunger Games and Divergent then this is definitely the next book you should be reading.
Marvelously written by an extraordinary young new author to capture your attention and keep you entranced through the entire story.
This book is sure to find it's way on to every must read list published.
