In a freezing world, where everyone knows the day they will die, three teens break all odds.

Franny Bluecastle, a tough city teen, dreams of dying in opulence, to see wealth she’s never known. Like the entire world, she believes it’s impossible to dodge a deathday.

Until the day she does.

Court Icecastle knows wealth. He also knows pain. Spending five years in Vorkter Prison, a fortress of ice and suffering, he dreams of life beyond the people that haunt him and the world that imprisoned him.

Mykal Kickfall fights for those he loves. The rugged Hinterlander shares a frustrating yet unbreakable connection with Court—which only grows more lawless and chaotic as their senses and emotions connect with Franny.

With the threat of people learning they’ve dodged their deathdays, they must flee their planet to survive. But to do so, all three will have to hide their shared bond as they vie for a highly sought after spot in the newest mission to space. Against thousands of people far smarter, who’ll live longer, and never fear death the way that they do.

Angie’s Thoughts:

I actually picked this book up and put it down for a week. I didn’t realize it was a m/m book and I tend to shy away from those. I’ve read them before and they weren’t done tastefully so it put me off. I’m so happy I picked it back up. This book was incredible and had me tearing up throughout. I won’t be hesitant to read m/m books in my future.

Court, Mykal and Franny are my own personal heroes. I loved their friendship. Their kindness. Their love and their bond. Court and Mykal opened my eyes to a relationship that was so real and touching. I felt all their pain and accomplishments. They became my friends. I laughed with them and cried with them. I fell in love with each character individually and whole.

The side characters made the book even better and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. My lesson of the day is don’t judge a book by its relationships. You might find that you’ll actually love it and it’ll quickly become one of your favorites. I’ve never read Krista or Becca before but I’ll definitely be reading more of their books now.

The only thing that sucked in this book was the ending. That ending killed me.

The Verdict:
