In a city divided between opulent luxury in the Light and fierce privations in the Dark, a determined young woman survives by guarding her secrets.
Lucie Manette was born in the Dark half of the city, but careful manipulations won her a home in the Light, celebrity status, and a rich, loving boyfriend. Now she just wants to keep her head down, but her boyfriend has a dark secret of his own—one involving an apparent stranger who is destitute and despised. Lucie alone knows the young men’s deadly connection, and even as the knowledge leads her to make a grave mistake, she can trust no one with the truth.
Blood and secrets alike spill out when revolution erupts. With both halves of the city burning, and mercy nowhere to be found, can Lucie save either boy—or herself?
This is a magical story filled with glimpses of two very different parts of New York you got the light and the dark side. Their a eerie feel to the dark against the light that is portrayed very well through out the whole story. You also got this strange phenomenon of Doppelgangers which i first heard about on the TV show How i met your mother. In this story they are created by dark magic and usually are created to save someone you love but are usually very dark and there fore they are killed on sight. Their a whole set of rules around them about how they are to dress and be treated. This story was wonderful and totally worth your time to read.
