North to Nara (Crimson Sash Book 1) by Amanda Marin is a story that I fell in love with the characters. It is a YA dystopian tale and it reminds me along the lines of The End Game and the like. It’s a story about reigning rulerships that live under antiquated laws, where those who don’t abide by them are punished. It is a story of love that is forbidden and torn apart just for being in love. I enjoyed Amanda’s writing and the story flowed easily and my heart ached for the injustice these beautiful characters went through. It is a great start to the series and as a debut book for Amanda. I am now chomping on the bit for the next book.
Neve believed in all the world had to offer but that was before she came face to face with the truth, a truth that is kept from everyone. She never meant to fall in love with the wrong man but that is exactly what happened, and now they have to face the punishment.
