It's graduation day for 16-year-old Malencia "Cia" Vale, and she's hoping to be selected for The Testing in Tosu City, a necessary prerequisite to attend the University. She is, along with three other Five Lakes colony teens. Embarking on the four-part series of challenges, Cia will learn whom to trust, even as she falls in love with
Best book ever!
Amazing This book is amazing. I could read it again and again!
Really good Hunger Games ripoff It's a trilogy about a young girl, chosen by a dystopian government to compete against other children, constant threat of death, a love interest with a fellow competitor from back home, and a secret rebel faction. Sound familiar? Still, this book was so unique that you rarely think about the "borrowed" story line. In many ways it is darker than the Hunger Games, and feels like a more possible future after a destructive global war. This is not a blood support used as entertainment, but the culmination of one man's vision on how to best select and prepare future leaders. There is a lot more for the reader to discover in this book compared to the Hunger Games. I really enjoyed the book and can't wait to continue the series. The wafts of Hunger Games is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars.
Awesome! Best book I've read in a long time!
The next Hunger Games One of the best dystopian books I've read since the Hunger Games (and I've read a ton of YA dystopian books!) Highly recommend reading this one!
