Walker Books, 2012. ISBN 9781921720086.
(Ages: 14+) Recommended. Ashala Wolf is the leader of a tribe of illegals hiding in the Firstwood. Now she has been captured by Chief Administrator Neville Rose. He is intent on destroying all illegals especially Ashala's tribe. To avoid getting caught she tried to kill herself and almost succeeded but instead she is now injured and vulnerable. And with her Sleepwalker ability blocked she has no way of escaping. Ashala is forced to give up her tribe's secrets to a machine that can pull the memories from her mind. While her betrayer, Justin Connor, is right beside he, watching her every move.
Ashala loves her tribe and the Firstwood, it hurts her to think that because of this machine she is betraying them. This is a great new series. With unexpected twists and a continuous sense of suspense it kept me reading till the end. I would recommend reading this book and I hope the future books in this series are just as good as this one.
