"I will become a force that this world has never known. I will come into such power that none will dare hurt me again." (18) Adelina said this after killing her father for hurting her. From this point on, she knows that no one will protect her.
"If you cast me out of the Dagger Society, then I will form my own. I am tired of losing. I am tired of being used, hurt, and tossed aside. It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt. My turn." (337) Adelina said this to Raffaele after he threatened to kick her out of the Dagger Society. She said this because she was tired of coming to other members of the Society and being betrayed or asked to do something in return. This was her breaking point, her goal now is to be the one who hurts others.

I would definitely recommend this book. It's interesting watching these kids who the world rejects try to survive. It is entertaining seeing the stuff that they have to do to survive. I would recommend it to teenagers because the kids in the book are teens and they go through some of the stuff that teenagers today go through. The three words that best describe this book are dark, intenseful, and mysterious.
