Summary / Annotation
Ambitious Dystopia submitted by Joe on June 13, 2014, 10:38am This book was a lot of fun. Its not a new idea, but it introduces us to a really interesting worlds/solar system. The whole color system was really creative and I look forward to the next entry.
Brilliant Debut Novel submitted by AccountJD on July 14, 2015, 10:49am This book is awesome. Awesome in every way. Despite being derivative in some ways, I didn't find it to have an unoriginal feeling--in fact, I would suggest that that the final trilogy might come to overshadow the Hunger Games in terms of plot, world system, and characters. It is clearly so much more than just another dystopian novel trying to leech off of the Hunger Games's success. Looking forwards to the third coming out in January 2016.
Well done submitted by steveiew on August 5, 2015, 11:00am This book explores the familiar plot of breaking out of a caste system in a unique way. The characters are well developed and the plot makes the book impossible to put down.
Loved it submitted by KOH on August 8, 2017, 2:21pm I was engaged from the beginning all the way to the end, and was happy to learn there are two more books in the series!
Awesome! submitted by thedukeofparma on June 18, 2019, 10:43am I found this book to be a real page turner. I call it "the Game book" because it has elements of Ender's Game, The Hunger Games, and Game of Thrones, all rolled into one. Highly recommended.
