Summary from Goodreads: Seventeen-year-old Serena isn’t human. She is a bad blood, and in the city of Vendona, bad bloods are executed. In the last moments before she faces imminent death, a prison guard aids her escape and sparks a revolt. Back on the streets determined to destroy her kind, Serena is spared by a fellow bad blood named Daniel. His past tragedies are as equally mysterious as her connection to them.

Unbeknownst to the two, this connection is the key to winning the election for bad bloods’ rights to be seen as human again. But Serena is the only one who can secure Vendona’s vote. Now, Daniel must unite with her before all hope is lost and bad bloods are eradicated, even if it means exposing secrets worse than death itself. United or not, a city will fight, rain will fall, and all will be threatened by star-crossed love and political corruption.

Review: I was given an audio book to review. The reader had a nice even voice that kept a nice pace through out the book. I also liked the accent. :) As for the story, the premise was interesting. Children born with "bad blood" that are sentenced to death because they are deemed less than human. Sounds great, right. 

I could have used more back story, but because I was coming in at the end of a series, if I had read the other books I might have gotten this. There was also a need for more world building, but that could have also been fixed in the previous books. 

All in all, this was a good read. I think you should all pick up this series. 

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
