Blurb:
In a dark and desolated After Earth, love still does exist, but the cost of bearing such a flaw is death.

World War III has left Earth in utter turmoil. People’s beliefs are said to be the cause of the worldwide destruction. After The Clearing new laws are set about - to show certitude in anything besides the law is weak and chargeable as mutiny. To be illogical and have faith in religion is illegal, to be limitless is dangerous. And Illness is seen as a defect – all flaws that are inexcusable.
But to love is the greatest betrayal of all mankind. It is a fault the world has long forgotten and punishable by death, a fatal risk Aecker and Opel are fully prepared to take - because in love there is freedom. But how far can they push back before it claims their lives and of those they care about?

MY REVIEW
OMG... this book.... everytime I read one of Carlyle's books, I am convinced it's going to kill me... this one was another one... 

Opel has lost her memory, and when she awakes in a strangers bed, faced with the stranger himself, she doesn't know what to do.  He tells her his name is Aecker and she's been following him.  He saved her from being attacked, and for the time being she is safe with him.  

What Aecker doesn't know is there are people that want Opel.  And not for good.  The two of them soon find themselves in a run for their lives, and Opel soon regains parts of her memory and who wants her.  She is determined not to go back to the men who are hell bent on seeing her death.  She loves Aecker, and will do anything to protect him.  

This book was constant action!!  Everytime it would start to level out, something else would be happening!!  I could.not.stop.reading.it!!!!  I was glued to my kindle because I had to know what happens!!

I loved Aecker!  No matter what happens he's is determined to protect Opel.  He loves her, and there is no other for him.   

This is one book I was reading going.... OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG... over and over again.  Just because it was that good!!!
