This book had a very powerful message to all the readers. It demonstrated acts of selfless love that Pax had for Kai. He really wanted to get Kai a good education for him because he was brilliant and could achieve so many things. But things really went downhill, and it got tough. Pax had sacrificed a lot for Kai. It made me really think about why Pax would do that- and then I realized: because Pax loves Kai a way a mother loves their children. Its sad but I love the last sentence of the book. Overall, I would rate this a 5/5
