I won’t lie… This book intrigued me from the cover alone… It screamed “sci-fi” to me, and that was a very, VERY good thing. 😉 Then, the synopsis hooked me right in, and well! I’m a sucker for mythology, so this re-telling of the Helen and Paris will definitely be on my list of books to look out for!
I don’t see duologies that often, but I’m really hoping this one will be the next big hit!

They will risk everything, even challenging the all-seeing eye of the Omni government. But will the prize be worth the cost?
Seventeen-year-old Pierce is a Drudge, the lowest social stratum in society. For over two years, he’s hoped—prayed—that his upcoming aptitude test will finally free him from his virtual slavery and give him a chance at a better existence. When he rescues Harmony, an Artist and member of the most successful stratum, his life takes an unbelievable twist.
With his gallant act and good looks, he becomes a media sensation. Every stratum in society seeks his membership for their publicity, but as he becomes closer to Harmony, Pierce realizes what fame in Omni is truly like. His choices will not only affect him but Harmony as well. The life Pierce thought he wanted may not be worth the cost to either of them.
