Four clans have been at war for centuries: the Kodiak, the Raven, the Wolf and the Ram. Through brutal war tactics, the Ram have dominated the region, inflicting death and destruction on their neighbors.

Seventeen-year-old Zo is a Wolf and a Healer who volunteers to infiltrate the Ram as a spy on behalf of the allied clans. She offers herself as a Ram slave, joining the people who are called the “nameless.” Hers is a suicide mission – Zo’s despair after losing her parents in a Ram raid has left her seeking both revenge and an end to her own misery. But after her younger sister follows her into Rams Gate, Zo must find a way to survive her dangerous mission and keep her sister safe.

What she doesn’t expect to find is the friendship of a young Ram whose life she saves, the confusing feelings she develops for a Ram soldier, and an underground nameless insurrection. Zo learns that revenge, loyalty and love are more complicated than she ever imagined in the first installment of this two-book series.

I have so much to say about this book that I have no clue where to begin!

To say that I love this book is an understatement. It completely blew me away! I don’t know what I was expecting when I dived into this one, but it definitely was not what I got. It was beyond amazing!

There isn’t one dull moment in NAMELESS. There is always something happening that will keep you at the edge of your seat wanting to scream, jump… something! I literally paced while reading because I was so excited, but yet so nervous all at the same time. With each turning page, I felt like I was watching a movie, only in my head. The writing was great, the descriptions were on point, and the characters… oh man, the characters!!! There isn’t one negative thing I can say about ANY of them. Every single one of them was strong and fearless, and also very well written. They were all likable. No, LOVEABLE! Even the bad ones that you wished death upon. Jenkins has taken world building to a whole new level. It just all flowed together so perfectly, and all felt real. 

Don't get me started on the romance! No, it isn't fluffy. And no, it's not all over the book. But the way it comes to light was perfect! It was nice and slow. Jenkins knew when to give a little, and then give a lot! Zo falls in love with the enemy, so imagine all the feels that comes with this. The angst, the guilt... argh, I am falling in love all over again! 

I am so happy that I took a chance on it. NAMELESS is one book that you can re-read over and over again and it will still feel fresh! I cannot wait for the world to read it and fall under the NAMELESS spell. Because that’s what I feel like I am under, a spell that has me trapped in Zo's world and won’t let me out! I don’t want out! 


If I could, 10 STARS!
