In a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, two feuding families rule: the Rose's and the Foster's. Aria Rose, daughter to a high ranking official, has an easy life. Yet, even so, it feels empty. That is where Thomas is concerned. His life is one very opposite to her's, and that draws her in.
The writing of Lawrence is lovely and well done. There isn't too much happening at once and it is all very understandable. The characters have a very classic Romeo and Juliet feel to them. There isn't all that much to say about it. It is a very standard story. The difference comes in with the usage of magic. The story is added to with this feature.
