about

In 2021 the world as we know it changed. The government collapsed, and the worst characteristics of human nature were shown as the world fell into ruins. Years after The Fall, the Tribes that were established are still at war. They still fight to keep what they pillaged, and most of all, they fight to keep their lies a secret. In a world filled with deception, nothing is as it seems.
I was born into this world.
Hunter Marks was molded into this world; a General— a person cold and harsh. A person meant to kill me.
We were told to just believe.
We were taught to never question.
We’re supposed to be robots, and accept our roles in this altered society.
Too bad Hunter and I don’t follow the rules.
And we’re a hell of a lot stronger than they ever thought possible.
They’ve been searching for the world’s deadliest weapon.
It’s me.
And I’m not following the leader any more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.25 stars-background information missing 3.25 stars-- IN BETWEEN SEASONS is the first instalment in Cassandra Giovanni’s YA, dystopian The Fall post-apocalyptic series focusing on the hunter/gatherer tribal communities formed after the collapse of the government and the political parties known as The Fall. This is twenty five year old Hunter Marks and eighteen year old Kate Ericson’s story-a Romeo and Juliet style YA romance. Told from first person POV (Kate) the storyline follows the lies, reality and truth behind the world, as it is, years after the collapse of the government. Kate’s father is a tribal chief and his word is law. The only problem is that Kate questions everything that is taught and heard. But the day Kate finds herself the victim of a kidnapping by another tribe she will quickly learn that everything she has been taught –is a lie-and more. The relationship between Kate and Hunter is one of immediate attraction. Hunter has been sent to kill Kate but something about Kate’s willingness to escape with her captor finds Hunter enthralled with the young woman whose father is a sworn enemy of his tribe. As the storyline builds, so too does Kate and Hunter’s relationship-one that is forbidden. Kate becomes a POW but her relationship with Hunter is anything but captor and prisoner. IN BETWEEN SEASONS is a sociological study of tribal communities consisting of patriarchal societies controlled by the men. The term hunter/gatherer society has more of a war-like connotation when the hunters are those who seek out and destroy, and the gatherers are sent to acquire information. While the woman must remain within the community-cooking, cleaning and preparing the meals-the men train for battle knowing that most will never return. Overall, IN BETWEEN SEASONS is an interesting storyline and the premise is one that could very well happen at some point in time. But saying that, there is quite a bit of background information missing from the story: What happened to cause The Fall? What exactly was The Fall? What was life like before The Fall? How did everyone come to live together in tribal societies? Character development is lacking as well. There is very little background information about the people or the main characters –what we know and learn commences at the start of the story-several years after The Fall. I would have liked some history about the people and places, and it is never revealed where the storyline takes place. Perhaps Cassandra has a prequel novel in the works that will answer many of the questions that left me lost and confused.
