Beta builds a utopian, unique world, and invites readers to explore it as Elysia does: objectively, and without any of the sensational affects of the island of Demesne which the humans experience – or at least that’s what she’s supposed to experience. This book beautifully explores the implications of a perfect world for the rich at the expense the rest of society. Elysia discovers the more-than-shady underside of this seemingly perfect society in this entrancing book – with sequels to come! Girls ages 16-18 would enjoy this series.
This book hits shelves October of 2012!
