ADD TO GOODREADS
A hot debut trilogy and a riveting story of survival, courage, and romance in a future where creating a master civilization is the only thing prized, no matter the method. After the Omega (the end of the end), 16 year old guys known as LTs discover their overseers are raising them not to be soldiers (lieutenants) as promised, but to be sold as bait because of their Less Than status and hunted for sport. They escape and join forces with a girls’ camp, the Sisters, who have been imprisoned and experimented on for the "good of the Republic," by a government eager to use twins in their dark research. In their plight for freedom, these heroes must find the best in themselves to fight against the worst in their enemies.
Why Am I Waiting?
I pretty much love the Dystopian genre. The battle of good triumphing over evil, repressive Governments being overthrown by citizens willing to fight for their lives. I just love it. Anyway, when I heard of this I knew it was one I wanted to read. It sounds like it blends some really great ideas from Dystopians past almost like a Gladiator meets The Wicked We Have Done type vibe.
Since I'm curious, Have you heard of this book before?
If so, Do you plan on reading it?

Prey is new to me but it sounds really interesting. I think it's one of those that will either be awesome or awful. I'll definitely give it a go :)ReplyDelete
I haven't heard much about this one, but I've seen it on a few WoWs lately. I'm way past wanting to read new entries in the dystopian/post-apocalyptic genre, but I hope this lives up to your expectations.ReplyDelete
