Synopsis from Goodreads

Kitty Doe is a Blackcoat rebel and a former captive with a deadly connection to the most powerful and dangerous man in the country, Prime Minister Daxton Hart. Forced to masquerade as Daxton’s niece, Lila Hart, Kitty has helped the Blackcoats take back the prison known as Elsewhere. But Daxton has no intention of ceding his position of privilege—or letting Kitty expose his own masquerade. Not in these United States, where each person’s rank means the difference between luxury and poverty, freedom and fear…and ultimately, between life and death.

To defeat the corrupt government, Kitty must expose Daxton’s secret. Securing evidence will put others in jeopardy, including the boy she’s loved forever and an ally she barely trusts. For months, Kitty’s survival has hinged on playing a part. Now she must discover who she truly wants to be, and whether the new world she and the rebels are striving to create has a place in it for her after all.

Disclaimer: Library book.

I’ve been eagerly anticipating the final book in this series and I am so glad I finally got to read it. The anticipation was absolutely killing me. So when my copy became available at the library I promised myself I’d start it the minute I picked it up.

This book was an awesome ending to the series. I loved the series overall, and although the 2nd book, Captive, is still my favorite of the three, Queen had a whole heck of a lot of awesome inside of it. A whole lot of craziness and even an eleventh hour ship change, which thrilled me for reasons.

Kitty took a lot of risks in this final book, but they were risks that paid off for the most part. They were risks that had me breathless as I kept reading to find out the outcomes of certain things.

I don’t know who was more of the breakout star in this book: Greyson or Celia. They were both captivating and I could never figure out what their next plans were.  I had always liked Greyson so I was happy to see more of him. Celia had always interested me. I had always wanted to know more about her and what made her tick.

I want to talk more about other characters, especially Knox & Benjy, but I won’t. I don’t want to accidentally let something slip about their character arcs. I still love Knox and I grew to dislike Benjy in this book. That’s all I’ll really say.

I am so sorry to say goodbye to these characters, but I am so glad that I got to read this series. It was captivating, exciting and fascinating. I am giving it 4.5 stars. It was so freaking awesome and I would totally recommend this series to everyone who likes dystopian books.

It was so awesome to be back in this world. I didn’t realize how much I had missed it until I started reading this book. I’ve been in a bit of a funk, so I wasn’t expecting to finish this book was quickly as I did. I finished it in about 4 hours total, maybe a bit less. So it was definitely captivating, interesting and so very, very good.
I was so excited that we got to see more of Raven. I absolutely love her and I love her friendship with Violet. I was worried things wouldn’t be as strong as it was in book one, but it was every bit as strong, if not stronger than book one. I think Raven was actually my favorite character in this book.
Violet and Ash were every bit as ship-worthy as they were in book one. I loved them together. I worried about Ash in the beginning of the book, especially considering how book one ended. I was a bit worried about a possible love triangle, but given certain events in this book, I can confidently say that there is no love triangle and in fact Garnet has his eye on a different girl.
The characters were the strength in this book. I loved how much we got to know about these characters, and even new characters that we got to meet. The characters were the reason I adored this book so much.
Oh my goodness, the ending of this book stressed me out. I was warned that there was another cliffhanger, but I wasn’t expecting THIS kind of cliffhanger. I was rendered speechless for a good 20 minutes. Every single time I tried to form words, nothing would come out. This ending was crazy-pants.
I really enjoyed this book. So addicting, captivating and awesome, and the ending was awesome. I’m giving it 4.5. It’s not a perfect read, but it was insanely good and I highly recommend it.

My Thoughts
It’s no secret that I’ve really enjoyed this series. This is one of those series that just gets better and better as it continues. After the way Captive ended, I am DYING to see how things all end up. Plus that cover is perfection. Is it November yet?

Synopsis from Goodreads:
For the past two months, Kitty Doe’s life has been a lie. Forced to impersonate the Prime Minister’s niece, her frustration grows as her trust in her fake fiancé cracks, her real boyfriend is forbidden and the Blackcoats keep her in the dark more than ever. 

But in the midst of discovering that her role in the Hart family may not be as coincidental as she thought, she’s accused of treason and is forced to face her greatest fear: Elsewhere. A prison where no one can escape. 

As one shocking revelation leads to the next, Kitty learns the hard way that she can trust no one, not even the people she thought were on her side. With her back against the wall, Kitty wants to believe she’ll do whatever it takes to support the rebellion she believes in—but is she prepared to pay the ultimate price?

Holy crap, Captive was so freaking good!

I had a lot of concerns about Captive, mostly surrounding the infamous “Second book syndrome” I had enjoyed Pawn so much that I was honestly afraid to read Captive. I really didn’t want to be disappointed. Thankfully, not only was I not disappointed but Captive surpassed my expectations in a really big way.

Kitty is still fiercely loyal to her Benjy, the boy she loves, everything she does, she does with him in mind. I still liked them together as a couple, but this book didn’t focus as much on the romance as Pawn had, which actually made the book better, I think. It focused on the relationships and friendships rather than the romances.

There were so many surprises that left me screaming “Holy shit” at the top of my lungs. So many twists that I didn’t see coming. A few times I was confused, but confused in the best way. I love when books keep me guessing like this one did. It adds an element to it that not very many books have.

The only person Kitty seems to trust is Benjy, and I totally understand that. It makes sense to me that Kitty doesn’t trust that many people. I know some people were pissed that she didn’t trust Knox, and while I do like him, I also understand why Kitty doesn’t trust Knox.

There are so many new characters in this book, but they are woven in nicely, and they didn’t add to my confusion. Several of them are really, really important to the story as well. So keep your eye on these characters, as you never know when or even if they’ll be important.

The world building was even better this time around. It was good in Pawn, but it was really good in Captive, so kudos to Carter for taking time to build the world that Kitty and everyone else lives in. A well developed world can really help a book be awesome, and in this case it definitely helped.

I hate that I’m being so vague about stuff, but I really don’t want to spoil it for anyone. This entire book is filled with spoilers so I really can’t say much else about the book. What I can say though, is that I loved it and cannot wait for book 3, the final book in the trilogy. I can also let you know that this book was utterly fantastic and I’ll be giving it 5 stars. Go read it now.

Review: Rite of Rejection by Sarah Negovetich

Synopsis from Goodreads:
“Before you stands the future.”

Straight-laced, sixteen-year-old Rebecca can’t wait for her Acceptance. A fancy ball, eligible bachelors, and her debut as an official member of society. Instead, the Machine rejects Rebecca. Labeled as a future criminal, she’s shipped off to a life sentence in a lawless penal colony.

A life behind barbed-wire fences with the world’s most dangerous people terrifies Rebecca. She reluctantly joins a band of misfit teens in a risky escape plan, complete with an accidental fiancé she’s almost certain she can learn to love.

But freedom comes with a price. To escape a doomed future and prove her innocence, Rebecca must embrace the criminal within.

Disclaimer: I received this e-ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

This looked really interesting, so I took a chance and requested it. When I got it, I started reading it very soon because I was afraid that waiting would diminish my excitement over this book. The first 20% was actually pretty good, I felt horrible for Rebecca once the Machine deemed her unworthy of Acceptance. She had pinned all her hopes and dreams on being Accepted and when it didn’t happen, her world crashed down around her.

Once she got to the penal colony, that’s when things really took a downward turn. There were four other misfits in her little group, but they all bored me. Their character development was virtually non-existent and there was nothing to differentiate these kids. They all acted the same, spoke the same, etc. I wanted more diversity, but I didn’t get it. 

The love triangle was a disaster. I didn’t buy it at all. One guy had no personality and the other guy gave me the creeps. It just did not work for me at all. There was never any explanation why Rebecca was attracted to these two boys. It felt like she was only attracted to them because of convenience, which really rubs me the wrong way.

This book was a real disappointment to me. It felt like a weird combo of Divergent & The Selection and while I did enjoy the Divergent trilogy as well as The Selection series, this one just wasn’t for me. It was a great concept, but it wasn’t executed well. I am giving it 2 stars. I would not recommend this book.

Review: The Jewel (The Lone City #1)by Amy Ewing

Book Title: The Jewel (The Lone City #1)
Author: Amy Ewing
Publish Date: September 2nd, 2014
Publisher: HarperTeen
Genre: YA Dystopian
Series: Book 1 in The Lone City trilogy
Book Link: Goodreads
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Jewel means wealth. The Jewel means beauty. The Jewel means royalty. But for girls like Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Not just any kind of servitude. Violet, born and raised in the Marsh, has been trained as a surrogate for the royalty—because in the Jewel the only thing more important than opulence is offspring.

Purchased at the surrogacy auction by the Duchess of the Lake and greeted with a slap to the face, Violet (now known only as #197) quickly learns of the brutal truths that lie beneath the Jewel’s glittering facade: the cruelty, backstabbing, and hidden violence that have become the royal way of life.

Violet must accept the ugly realities of her existence… and try to stay alive. But then a forbidden romance erupts between Violet and a handsome gentleman hired as a companion to the Duchess’s petulant niece. Though his presence makes life in the Jewel a bit brighter, the consequences of their illicit relationship will cost them both more than they bargained for.

Disclaimer: I received this e-ARC from HarperTeen via Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.

Oh this book made me feel all the things. It stressed me out in a way I never thought it would. It was surprisingly filled with feels pretty early on and I got emotional because of it. I very rarely get emotional early on, so I was surprised when it happened when I was barely 20% into it. 

I loved Violet. Clearly she was in an awful position and she had no say in anything that happened to her. From the moment the test was preformed on her to see if she was a candidate to be a surrogate, any choices she had went out the window. Yet she was strong, friendly and kind.

We first meet her only days before she has to go to the surrogate auction. She hasn’t seen her family in 4 years. She’s been in a holding place where she’s been trained up to be a surrogate. Now I had no idea what training to become a surrogate entailed. It was certainly not something I had ever heard of. Yet, as the book unfolds, we learn what types of training is involved.

She enters the auction being number 197. In this world, the higher the number, the better the surrogate. So at 197, she’s nearly the top pick. Her friend Raven comes into the auction being number 192, so she is also high up on the auction market.

When we get to her mistresses’ place, the atmosphere feels different. More foreboding, more tension filled. Violet doesn’t know half of what goes on there or in the surrounding places. But she’s about to find out that things aren’t always what they seem. Yes The Jewel prides on both opulence and offspring, but beneath that lies a tangled web of lies and deceit.

I actually thought there was a good love interest in this book. I liked Ash. He seemed to see her in ways that no one else seemed to. He saw Violet. He didn’t see her as #197 and the surrogate to the Duchess of the Lake. I think he was who Violet needed. Yes it was a forbidden romance but I think Violet clung to him because it was the first real decision she had been able to make for herself in a very long time.

I got really confused sometimes about all the names in the book. They had titles but then they also had names. It was very confusing for me to remember who was who and whose surrogate was that. I think some sort of chart that the readers could refer to in the beginning of the book would have been very helpful. About halfway through I started to feel like the author was spending more time with the world building and not enough time developing the characters. That feeling eventually changed for me as I neared the end. 

The ending was perfect. I could not even see the twist coming until it was upon me. I mean wow, that ending was absolute perfection and it definitely set the stage for Book 2. It is going to be a very long wait until Book 2. I am giving this book 4 stars. I’m so glad I read this book. It was one of my top fall releases and it definitely delivered.

Find out who America will choose in The One, the enchanting, beautifully romantic third book in the Selection series.

Disclaimer: This was a personal purchase.

It’s been no secret that I’ve been obsessed with this series since I first started it in March. It’s addicting like chocolate. Except chocolate doesn’t make you wait for three books to see what happens and who is the last one left standing. 

This book was the best book of the series for multiple reasons. There was even more about how the world worked, there was a lot more with Queen Amberly & King Clarkson, there was some great moments between the final four girls. It felt like Cass really went for it in the final book. No, not everything was tied up in a neat bow, BUT I didn’t mind. I was okay with there still being a few loose strings. 

America comes to a decision in this book and it was definitely difficult to watch her at times. She played keep away with her heart. She knew how she felt, but the idea of telling Maxon was difficult. Maxon was also playing hot and cold with her at times, but I think that came from not wanting to put himself all in without knowing how she felt about him. It also didn’t help that King Clarkson was very against America

America pulled a couple of stunts that infuriated the king, he made it very clear on multiple occasions that America was not the one, forgetting of course that it was Maxon’s choice who he wanted. King Clarkson was a very controlling, strong-willed and often quite cruel to his own son. I was hoping that The Elite would be the extent of his controlling, domineering attitude, but unfortunately, I was wrong.

Finally, I started to like Aspen a whole lot better. Definitely disappointed that it took so long for me to like him, but glad that it happened at all. Aspen’s got secrets of his own, and honestly, I suspected what the secret was early on, but it wasn’t until the end that my suspicions were confirmed. He did some great things for America and Maxon, including one thing at the very end that I thought was fitting.

There was more on the politics as things became quite dangerous in the palace. Yet, I wasn’t bored. I actually found it to be very fascinating. I always wanted to know what was going on and who was behind all this and why. I’m definitely glad we got answers about this part. I would have been bummed if we did not.

I was thrilled with how things went with the final 4 girls. Things you never expected to happen, happen. Alliances changed in startling ways, so serious kudos to Cass for that. I love when unexpected things happen, it adds more intrigue to the story.

Fantastic ending to the series and this will be getting 5 stars from me. Like I said earlier, I found it to be the best book of the series. The entire series was addicting and I am so gonna miss this series.

Series: Book 1 in the series

Synopsis from Goodreads:
For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country. 

If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister’s niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter. 

There’s only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed …and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that’s not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she’s only beginning to understand.

Previously titled Masked.

Disclaimer: I received this e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.

I have been reading a lot of dystopians lately so I wasn’t sure if this one would hold up to some of the other ones that I have really enjoyed. Thankfully, after a slow start Pawn gathered steam quickly and drew me into a world where everyone has their own agenda and everyone has secrets and no one is sure who they can trust.

For Kitty, her number one goal is to protect Benjamin “Benjy” They are in love but when Kitty gets a III on the day of her testing, she knows she needs to do something drastic.With that III she is going to be taken away from everything she loves. So when she’s offered a chance to become a VII, she doesn’t think on it too long. She accepts the offer,but when she wakes up. she’s no longer Kitty Doe. She’s Lila Hart.

It was hard to figure out who to trust. Augusta is the clear leader in the family. Daxton is quickly proved to be untrustworthy. Celia and Knox are the wild cards. Kitty is not sure where they stand. She forms a friendship with Greyson and when the truth unfolds itself, one of the wild cards will throw everything Kitty thought she had learned about the Harts into question.

The editing job was well done. There were a few tiny issues with it but nothing major. The world building was actually really good. It felt like I was in their world which is a great feeling.The characters were pretty decent throughout, you never knew what some of them would do, which added an element to the story.Yet I didn’t get any major feels from the book and that’s the majority of the reason that I am giving this story 4 stars. It was an enjoyable read and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Isn’t that what they say? But how close is too close when they may be one in the same? 

The Seven Stages War left much of the planet a charred wasteland. The future belongs to the next generation’s chosen few who must rebuild it. But to enter this elite group, candidates must first pass The Testing—their one chance at a college education and a rewarding career. 

Cia Vale is honored to be chosen as a Testing candidate; eager to prove her worthiness as a University student and future leader of the United Commonwealth. But on the eve of her departure, her father’s advice hints at a darker side to her upcoming studies–trust no one. 

But surely she can trust Tomas, her handsome childhood friend who offers an alliance? Tomas, who seems to care more about her with the passing of every grueling (and deadly) day of the Testing. To survive, Cia must choose: love without truth or life without trust.

Disclaimer: I won this book from Popcorn Reads.

This book was very similar to The Hunger Games, which I loved. I had no idea how similar they would be until I started reading this book.Nowadays it’s very hard to have a dystopian book not be similar to another dystopian book.However The Testing ended up being much more sinister than I would have ever realized. No the Commonwealth was not was creepy as Panem nor was the world building as good as it was in The Hunger Games.

However I loved Malencia “Cia” Vale. Absolutely loved her. She was a dream heroine. She had empathy and sympathy but she also was a fighter.She was prepared to protect her family at all costs. She didn’t get all moony over a guy either. Yes Tomas clearly was into her from the beginning and yes she was attracted to him too, but she never let that interfere with what she was trying to do.

Like the Hunger Games there was a love triangle hinted at. Yes people may disagree with me on that,but it was clear to me that Will is supposed to be the “Peeta” in this series. And much like The Hunger Games trilogy, I am rooting for Will and Cia to get together. I didn’t feel anything between Cia and Tomas except friendship. I don’t really trust Tomas either. Not after what Cia discovers near the end of this book. Cia may have spilled all of her secrets to Tomas, but Tomas did not afford her the same courtesy. Not by a longshot.

Like I said previously, the world building was not as good in this one as it was in The Hunger Games,but it definitely wasn’t terrible either.Add that to my dislike of Tomas and not buying him and Cia together, this book gets 4 stars.I am so excited to see what happens in the next book.
