Warring families. Forbidden love. And danger they can't escape…

Daggers. Roses. Cowboys. Boat Men. Survivors of Earth's Last War, four "families" vie to rule the dreary streets of Rain City through violence and blood. Valencia Hara, Princess of the wealthy Black Roses, is raised in warrior ways with sharpened steel. But she is no ordinary Rose. She is Cursed—tainted with the ability to see seconds into the future…

To avenge his father's death, Sebastian Leold, of the rival gang Two Daggers, must face off against the Black Princess, he with his dagger, she with her katana sword. Yet a secret from a shared past leaves him unable to kill beautiful Valencia; nor can she kill him. For they once knew each other beyond their blood feud…and they have more secrets in common than they know.

But in a world filled with vengeance and violence, there can be no room for love…

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good This book was a great read! I thought the characters were intriguing and the action parts definitely kept my interest. The "curses" were a great touch. The writing style and dialogue was clear and concise and I had no problems understanding what the author was trying to say. I enjoyed the twists in this book and look forward to the next one in the series. I would definitely recommend this book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't like it I normally like books in the YA Dystopia genre (this is why I bought this on Day 1, the second I found out it was released) but there was something about this one that irked me because I bought this and paid money for it. It's like the lights were on but nobody was home. What the hell does that mean? Why did I write that? The whole story was exactly like that sentence I wrote. There were so many facsimiles and fancy adages strung together and put in random places that it didn't make any sense. I'm not sure if this book is translated from russian or polish or something but it seems like it.
