The Blerb:



Britain’s magically-skilled aristocracy compels all commoners to serve them for ten years – and now it’s the Hadleys’ turn. Abi Hadley is assigned to England’s most ruthless noble family. The secrets she uncovers could win her freedom – or break her heart. Her brother Luke is enslaved in a brutal factory town, where new friends’ ideals might cost him everything.
Then while the elite vie for power, a young aristocrat plots to remake the world with his dark gifts. As Britain moves from anger to defiance, all three must take sides. And the consequences of their choices will change everything, forever.

The Review:

Really enjoyable and a quick read. The concept of Slavedays was really different from other books. The use of magic as Skill was also well thought out. 

The characters were easy to relate to and I found myself really involved in how Luke got one with everything.

I am really looking forward to the sequel.

Thanks for reading.
