In this prequel to Calhoun's first novel in the series, Selah Chavez is trying to get out of an arranged marriage. She learns deeper and darker secrets, though, when attempting to learn more about her arranged marriage. The series is set in boroughs in a futuristic dystopia and Selah's father is the leader of one of the boroughs seemingly attempting to unite boroughs by his daughter's marriage. This short prequel ends on a cliff-hanger and leaves readers wanting to read Thunder, the first book in the series. That is what I am reading next, now.
