Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Any fan of The Eleventh Plague, Hunger Games, or Divergent or any dystopian story would love this story of a nation torn apart at the seams!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I liked this book; it was entertaining and made me want to know the ending. A couple good unexpected twists, yet some obvious relationship mishaps and get-togethers. For me, I'm not really into the whole "you can only have one true love" thing and then the protagonist has issues finding this one true love and gets all confused. I find it annoying and this book had that feel. I am glad I read it, but am not planning on reading the second one.

Editorial Reviews

“A dramatic work that is reminiscent of Lois Lowry’s The Giver and will appeal to fans of Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games.”
