¨this is no hunger games or divergent copy, this series truly stands out on its own! i always read reviews before buying books, and some don't measure up to the good reviews, but this one does. i'm really surprised to see it doesn't have higher 5 star ratings. i have found that a lot of cheaper, but lesser quality books, get higher ratings.
Cia and her classmates go through brutal testing they are not supposed to remember but somehow they do. they don't find out till its too late that they are being listened to at all times. Cia takes a chance and doesn't listen to her fathers advice to not trust anyone and she sometimes trusts the wrong people.
the characters are well rounded and engaging. i found myself rooting for Cia and being uneasy when she is uneasy. there is a great love story starting which adds balance to action and suspense.¨ -Amazon review
