I absolutely loved this book. Mostly I loved Sevro though, he was just amazing. That attitude, that wit…what a guy. So funny. He made the severity of the novel less depressing. Darrow was all right too, he’s kind of annoying though, but I still like him and I want him to make it.

I love the world, the plot and well…everything. It’s unique and I like that. We’re on Mars and there’s this strange society of people and slaves and workers. But the setting of this book in particular takes place in some sort of school where only the strongest will survive and every day is a fight. One could draw parallels to Hunger Games and other books like that from the premise, but please don’t. This is something different, something so much better. This feels real and the way Pierce Brown makes the readers feel for these characters are simply amazing. No one is perfect in this book and it doesn’t feel like you’ve just placed a bunch of stereotypical high school kids in a bad place (like a lot of other books like this sometimes do), but here everyone feels so real and so flawed in a beautiful way.

I can say enough good things about this book and the way it’s written. So, just read it. You can’t miss out!

Never before have I been so excited about reading a sequel.
