The Walled City Review
730. That's how many days I've been trapped.
18. That's how many days I have left to find a way out.
DAI, trying to escape a haunting past, traffics drugs for the most ruthless kingpin in the Walled City. But in order to find the key to his freedom, he needs help from someone with the power to be invisible....
JIN hides under the radar, afraid the wild street gangs will discover her biggest secret: Jin passes as a boy to stay safe. Still, every chance she gets, she searches for her lost sister....
MEI YEE has been trapped in a brothel for the past two years, dreaming of getting out while watching the girls who try fail one by one. She's about to give up, when one day she sees an unexpected face at her window.....
In this innovative and adrenaline-fueled novel, they all come together in a desperate attempt to escape a lawless labyrinth before the clock runs out.
So this book was so worth the read. The characters, story, and everything in between, was such a beautiful thing that really drew me in.
Dai was such a different character. He seems when you first meet him as someone who was just trying to clear his name and go home. He does everything in his ability to save Jin and her sister, and he does, hell, he nearly loses everything.
Jin was a very interesting character, and she really showed what it is like to have siblings and what you really would do for them. She is the definition of a badass character, and I really enjoyed seeing a character like that.
Mei Yee, was different from her sister, in ways like she does jobs more secretly. I feel so bad for her in the why of, being sold as a prostitute by her father and not being able to protect her little sister anymore.
Like I said, as someone who has a sister, I really enjoyed seeing Jin's and Mei Yee's relationship to really show what sisters are really about.
4.5 out of 5 stars
