Meridian Six remembers the days before the Troika enslaved humans. She also remembers her mother, a freedom fighter murdered in the final battle between humans and vampires. But it is her mother's final words that have haunted her:

Red means life.

In the years since her mother's death, she has been used as both a propaganda tool and a blood slave by the Troika. She's withstood their indignities because the alternative meant bleeding out in a blood camp. But their abuses finally go too far, and she decides to run towards freedom and her mother's red light.

On the other side, she finds the Sisters of Crimson. They help her just as her mother promised, but they also hand her to the human rebels. The vampires used her famous name to keep human slaves biddable, but now the humans want to use it inspire a revolution.

When the world is at war, freedom is a luxury paid for with blood.

my thoughts kitty

Being a Sci Fi Dystopian I knew this was going to be fun and I was right! This one is quite short but it delves right into the fight.

Right away I got a feel for Meridian Six. She seems so young but so filled with strength. Living in a vampire dystopian will either kill you or make you stronger! In her case she dealt with the nonsense only to be surrounded by more nonsense the minute she got away.

The rebels see her strength and want her to fight and half of the story is built upon their dislike of each other. There are not that many rebels though so I can feel her pain. She just escaped and now these crazies want her to go back in?!! This portion was both interesting and far fetched. Most rebel camps have to be though so I just went with it.

I liked the characters and the plot but there are so many questions. Since this is only just over 100 pages there are more questions than answers by the end.

In short: Very well done. Interesting story with a lot going on.
