  1. Good story line about an after world creating people to be extremely peaceful because of what the world did to it self and she chances all i guess

  2. these sound fantastic! Congrats to Krista on the new release and thanks for sharing!

  3. This is rather frightening. What a boring world with everyone being just the same, with no emotions, no responses to anything, no ability to react against injustices to the leaders because the leaders most certainly have to be different.

  4. Ohh I have the first book but I have not read it yet I hope to read it soon because the book looks and sounds great thanks for the great giveaway!
