Review- Weighted by Ciara Knight

Goodreads Summary: 
The Great War of 2185 is over, but my nightmare has just begun. I am being held captive in the Queen’s ship awaiting interrogation. My only possible ally is the princess, but I’m unsure if she is really my friend or a trap set by the Queen to fool me into sharing the secret of my gift. A gift I keep hidden even from myself. It swirls inside my body begging for release, but it is the one thing the Queen can never discover. Will I have the strength to keep the secret? I’ll know the answer soon. If the stories are true about the interrogators, I’ll either be dead or a traitor to my people by morning.


Author Ciara Knight gifted me a Kindle copy of Weighted that I won in a giveaway form Anagha @ BookSpark. I was interested in reading the book, which is 31 pages long, and I finished it in one sitting.
The synopsis itself caught my attention, since the story is set in 2185. Raeth is a Neumarian and possesses a power that the Queen believes will annihilate the human population. Hence, she is captured and tortured. Some of the scenes were quite cruel, but I think that makes it more real. I liked both, Princess Semara and Bendar, who seemed genuinely nice people and help Raeth. I did feel bad for Raeth for everything that she's been through. I hope we get to see more about her family and her life before the Great War in the coming books.
Overall, Weighted was an interesting and good read, though I wish it was longer! But then again, it is a novella, and I am waiting to read the first book in The Neumarian Chronicles. I love the word "Neumarian", by the way!
