Summary taken from Goodreads:
It should have been a short suspended-animation sleep. But this time Rose wakes up to find her past is long gone— and her future full of peril.
Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for sixty-two years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten subbasement, sixteen-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now, her parents and her first love are long gone, and Rose— hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire— is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes— or be left without any future at all.
I love this cover. Love love love it! It screams creepy sci fi fairy tale to me! I haven't really seen much about this book on the internet. I am not sure why at all- I loved it!
This is the kind of book where you will drastically go from hugging the book throwing the book across the room in anger- not because the book is bad, but because it really does draw that much feeling from the readers. There are so many things I loved about this book- and equally hated. The choices that some of the characters made, caused me to shake the book furiously. Rose, is such a broken character. She really has been brainwashed into thinking that certain things are alright.
I don't want to give away too much of this book- there are so many parts that are shocking! I will say though- if you are a fan of The Adoration of Jenna Fox, Science Fiction, Fantasy, or even Dystopian fiction- I really think you will enjoy this book.
I hope there is a sequel!
