Even a dreamer can start a revolution.
Excerpt from the back: The year is 2059. Paige Mahoney is working int he criminal underworld of Scion London. Her job: to scout for information by breaking into people’s minds. For Paige is a dream walker, a rare kind of clairvoyant — and under Scion Law, she commits treason simply by breathing. Elsewhere, however, there is a seat of power even greater than Scion. And they have a different design for Paige and her uncommon abilities…
Review: How cool does this book sound? I mean, it is sort of like all the others. Its set in the not-so-distant future, and something plagues the Earth making some people more than human. Those who are normal start to live in fear of what they don’t know and all hell breaks loose.
I actually really enjoyed this book a lot. There was a lot of information dumping but that didn’t bother me. it allowed me to create this world in my head. Every detail creating an image in my mind. This information dumping however, causes the book to read a bit slower than most in beginning as so many new terms are introduced at once. But as they are figured out you get sucked into it. 
I liked Paige’s character and the subtle relationship that grew between her and Warden. To everyone that thinks this book has a sexual slavery undertone can just stop.
Lastly, major kudos for having a character named Danica. I have never seen my name in literature before and that was so cool. 
Rating: 4.25/5 stars!
