"Imagine that the world is made out of love- now imagine it isn't. Imagine where everything goes wrong, where everyone has their backs against the wall, where everyone is in pain, where everyone acts selfishly, because if they don't, they will die. Imagine a story, not of good against evil, but of need, against need, against need, where everyone is at cross purposes." ||| Pandora Hearts [Richard Siken]
The beauty of darkness by Mary E. Pearson. With war on the horizon, Princess Lia has no choice but to assume her role as First Daughter, and finds herself at cross-purposes with her love, Rafe, and suspicious of Kaden, who has hunted her down.
