Usually I get very annoyed at all the dystopian novels out there, but this stands out. It's original and has believable characters.


I don't read much science fiction, but this was very enjoyable. It kept my interest and kept me wondering til the (cliffhanger) end. Glad I realized it had sequels, or I would have been driven crazy by the ending!


great book it's just amazing. I can't wait to read the second one
