Synopsis: 
“Death and the stillness of death are the only things certain and common to all in this future.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
Rose is dying. Her body is wasted and skeletal. She is too sick and weak to move. Every day is an agony and her only hope is that death will find her swiftly before the pain grows too great to bear. She is sixteen years old. Rose has made peace with her fate, but her younger sister, Koren, certainly has not. Though all hope appears lost Koren convinces Rose to make one final attempt at saving her life after a mysterious man in a white lab coat approaches their family about an unorthodox and experimental procedure. A copy of Rose’s radiant mind is uploaded to a massive super computer called Aaru – a virtual paradise where the great and the righteous might live forever in an Arcadian world free from pain, illness, and death. Elysian Industries is set to begin offering the service to those who can afford it and hires Koren to be their spokes-model. Within a matter of weeks, the sisters’ faces are nationally ubiquitous, but they soon discover that neither celebrity nor immortality is as Utopian as they think. Not everyone is pleased with the idea of life everlasting for sale. What unfolds is a whirlwind of controversy, sabotage, obsession, and danger. Rose and Koren must struggle to find meaning in their chaotic new lives and at the same time hold true to each other as Aaru challenges all they ever knew about life, love, and death and everything they thought they really believed.

This book series completely had me fooled. I knew I would like it, however, I did not expect to enjoy a series as much as I enjoyed this one. I found myself spending every free and waking moment engulfed into the world of Prythian and the lives of the High Fae Courts.

It absolutely took me by surprise and shattered my very existence when it ended. I was sitting on my couch anticipating the last few chapters of the book, wanting so badly to read it, but not wanting the series to truly be over. I finally just couldn’t help it I had to know how it would end.

Have I mentioned yet that it shattered my existence? Read the rest of this entry »
