Dystopian Duology

My review

4 stars

This was an interesting read. I love the concept: a dystopian-frozen country where people live well and with wealth only inside the Snowglobe. A type of Truman's show where actors and directors put on a show for everyone to watch on TV. The main star and adored Haeri is gone. No one knows because the director brings a girl into the show to hide this from the viewers. Now Chobahm is Haeri, but as fast as she loves the idea of having an amazing life as Haeri she also finds out the horrible truth of Snowglobe. I couldn't put it down, but when we hit sixty percent of the novel things turn around in such a way that it's very surprisingly fast-paced and filled with plot twists then Chobahm decides to handle it all. Although it's a duology the events of book one are mostly resolved and could be enjoyed as a standalone. I appreciate the cover and inner cover being so pretty. I love it when the publisher rewards the readers with an extra step. 

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for the arc.
