5 GORY STARS!
➦Just a quick review on this one. If you enjoyed [bookcover:The Hunger Games|2767052] this book might be for you. It is much more violent and some scenes are pretty graphic. I sometimes cried or squeezed my eyes shut in disgust!
➦It took a little while for me to get into the book. The beginning had a lot of world building and quite a bit of information was dumped on me. Half way into the story, however, it became almost impossible to put the book down. The plot was unpredictable and exciting. Non-stop action in the second half of the book, real nail-biter, this one.
➦I loved the hero. He is the underdog fighting for freedom and equality for his people. He is sent to infiltrate the Golds (the highest social class) and has to pretend to be a friend to a lot of people. He can’t trust anyone but yet… somehow… new friendships are made. The secondary characters are nothing short of spectacular.
➦I can’t wait to start the second book in this series!
