I want to start by saying how big of a fan I am of dystopian worlds. Anyone that can come up with a different way of living, believable or not, and make it interesting has my respect as a writer. Even if I personally don’t find it interesting, I give the author props for sticking their head out there and letting the world read their mind-baby
I have completely the entire series and plan to rate all of them accordingly.
I am not a fan of this series, though it does have some aspects that I do like.
Why is there a random plague? I feel like the Rebellion is like everyday hackers.
“Bro, I found a way to kill everyone’s computers.”
“That’s awesome, let’s release it and make everyone super upset.”
“But I don’t have anything to fix it afterwards yet.”
“That’s fine. After we release it and everyone is upset, we will find a way to fix everything and get super rich.”
You see what I mean?
The rebellion wanted to release this plague so they could fix it and be the heroes. Why are we just hearing about this thing now? I feel like it was a little thrown together, you know what I mean?
I liked how it focused more on Xander though. I liked him more than Cassia and Ky. Those two just were so love thirsty it was annoying. There are more things than falling in love with someone you never noticed before until someone told you to notice them. Xander needed to move on too (and thank goodness he did).
How was Cassia plague-proof? Or how is she pill-proof? I just don’t feel complete. I feel as if the whole story lacked something (maybe action?) and if it had that something I would have loved this book 10000% more than I do right now.
Again, props for giving the brain-baby a try but I feel as if she needed more work before you published her. This is my personal opinion. Obviously people loved it besides me so you can just wave off.
It is a different twist to the young adult books, which is what I do like about it. Makes you think more and is set more in the minds of the characters instead of what is actually going on around them.
