An atmospheric dystopia

I have never read a book like this one before – a dystopia for young readers, combined with a romance set in a magical surrounding of a picturesque island. A solely romantic story wouldn't be that interesting for me, but here we have much more: personal feelings inevitably conflicted with political situation in a caste society and supernatural creatures controlling the island from afar. This combination may sound strange at first, but it reads very well and leaves you craving for more – lucky for the readers, there are two more books in the series. And don't forget to look out the musician mentioned in the novel – Jyoti Verhoeff. It's absolutely amazing.
