NEED BOOK INFORMATION: The blue eyed general

Jed’s dead. These are the words that transform seventeen year old Cecelia Rivermire’s quiet life into a manhunt. A manhunt to kill the man that murdered her only friend. A manhunt to kill the man that murdered her first love. In this quest for revenge, however, she’ll soon discover that everything she’s ever known has been a lie, including everything she thinks she knows about herself…

Set in a world where a dictator’s word is gospel, rebellion looms, and science and superstition collide with devastating consequences, The Blue-Eyed General follows Cecelia as she strives for her vengeance. Though the man she hunts is an extremely illusive figure, and she finds herself hunted by her own tyrannical Emperor, she’s confident that taking her revenge should be easy. After all, she’s no ordinary girl. With incredible strength, speed, and otherworldly blue eyes, she’s a beautiful enigma; but none of that can protect her from the terrifying places her journey will take her to, and nothing on Gaia can prepare her for the horrible truths she’ll learn about herself. By the time she’s done, Cecelia will wish she’d left the past undisturbed.

With tensions and treason, madness and murder, romance and revelation, for the Blue-Eyed General, revenge really is only the beginning…

My Review:

The character in this book Cecilia, a general now with flashbacks as to what brought her to where she is now.  After the death of her friend Jed, Cecilia is out to find the man that did this to him and seek revenge. 

This is not my typical type of book however with that being said I felt that the storyline was great, the characters were well described to where you could connect with them on a personal level.    The story moved along at a good pace although I did find myself struggling at points which would pick up right when something would happen. It’s a good first book and I look forward to a second one.
