Seventeen-year-old Amrey X has one fatal flaw. She can lie in a city forced to speak the truth.
For 200 years, citizens of Axiom have been subjected to a truth serum. Forced to stand oath from the age of seven. And for 10 years Amrey has conformed.
Things are changing. The Axiom Government has caught wind of an immune and will stop at nothing to hunt them down. Amrey must leave, but it will have a cost.
Unsure who to trust, she finds herself drawn to a boy, whose wit and charm may be more of a distraction than she can handle. And when confronted by a figure of her past, Amrey must deal with a shocking truth she wasn’t prepared for. And make a choice that could change everything.

So I bought this book after seeing a youtube short about it, purely on a whim. I wouldn't say I'm "fussy", but thanks to my ADHD I have the attention span of a magpie in a cutlery drawer. It's hard for me to actually get into a book and read it for more than 10 minutes. But I could not put Axiom down. As soon as I started reading I was hooked, and I stayed up stupidly late, telling myself "just one more chapter, then I will sleep" only to end up reading about five more chapters instead. I finished it in less than a day, which really says a lot! All the twists and turns had me either gasping or cursing the author for playing with my feels like that...(and I actually made a point to comment on one of her videos stating as such, for which she apologised, bless her heart xD) and I can't wait for more! The characters are well-written, the pacing is very nicely spread out and not at all confusing. I never felt bored or like something was lacking. Can't recommend this enough. Now, please excuse me whilst I re-read Axiom the same day as I finished it whilst I impatiently wait for a second book. Sending much love to the author! x
