I've come to love dystopian novels. The Matched series, the Divergent Series , I could go on and on. Something about the stories that could happen in the future. It's intriguing. I'm looking forward to adding this to my TBR pile! :)

In the icy, monster-plagued world of the Fost, one wrong move and a person could end up dead -- Lia Weaver knows this better than anyone.
After monsters killed her parents, Lia must keep the family farm running despite the freezing cold and threat of monster attacks or risk losing her siblings to reassignment by the village Elders. With dangers on all sides and failure just one wrong step away, she can't afford to let her emotions lead her astray. So when her sister finds a fugitive bleeding to death in the forest -- a young stranger named Gabe -- Lia surprises herself and does the unthinkable.
She saves his life.
Giving shelter to the fugitive could get her in trouble. The Elders have always described the advanced society of people beyond the Frost, the "Farthers" as ruthless and cruel. But Lia is startled to find that Gabe is empathetic and intelligent ... and handsome. She might even be falling in love with im.
But time is running out. The monsters from the forest circle the farm at night. The village leader is starting to ask questions. Farther soldiers are searching for Gabe. Lia must locate a secret organization called the Thorns to help Gave escape to safety, but every move she makes puts her in more danger.
Is compassion -- and love-- worth the risk?
