This book is a 3.5 for me, but I rounded up for world-building and peripheral characters. This is a dystopian world, and this group has formed a family under Dallas O'Kane. Jasper rescues Noelle after she's been exiled from Eden by her father. Noelle is incredibly naive and sheltered. Jasper is a good soldier in the O'Kane family. I found each of them a bit watered down compared to some of the other characters in the story. I adore the way these people have come together to create their own rules and sense of justice.
