It's not against any formal rule for us to sleep together.
It is, however, strictly forbidden to have feelings for each other.
I can't do one without the other at this point.
Which means I am doomed.
When you don’t know who you can trust, reality distorts. It twists and oozes, disintegrating and reformulating to meet whatever needs its masters demand.
Just like me.
Just like Kina.
Except everything is different now that we know who we really are.
But there’s a second reality, you see.
This one can’t be manipulated.
It just is. Solid and true, it takes our mission, our training, our orders, turning them into nothing but secrets and lies.
And this new reality means my old reality is trying to kill everything I love.
Next please? Traceless is the second book in the Stateless series. These books are meant to be read in order and together. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait for more.
The author of this series has a way of shaking a person to their core. She introduces us to this world then shifts it irrevocably. The characters are so dynamic and built on many layers that you never feel like you can get enough of them.
Add in the budding romance along with the mystery and high intensity of the overall plot and well I was on the edge of my seat. The writing style is perfect. The pace is great.
In conclusion, i enjoyed this book. I cannot wait to reread it, along with the first book in preparation for the final book. Who knows what secrets I'll learn the second time around?

I pull her into my arms on impulse, her small sound of pain as her eyebrow brushes against my shoulder making me let go.
“No. It's okay. I like being close to you.”
We breathe into each other, mouths a few inches apart, her features blurring. An edge lives inside me, vibrant and real, relocating wherever it's needed. It divides me, making me know the difference between baseline calm and danger.
I want to live in baseline with her.
I want to live with her. Not co-exist.
She turns, somber and achingly present.
“We can't keep doing this.”
“Not talking about this.”
Instead of asking her what she means, I slide my hands to her waist, palms greedy at her curves. She's taut and fit, with more muscle than I can see. My hands find it, memorize it.
“Let's talk, then.”
“We're breaking every rule.” Her eyes flit to the jammer bar on my wrist again.
“Once you’ve mastered the rules, you know when you have to break them.”
“We were never taught that.”
