Summary

For fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent comes a story like no other...
A toxic river divides nineteen-year-old Violet Bates's world by gender.
Women rule the East. Men rule the West.
Welcome to the lands of Matrus and Patrus.
Ever since the disappearance of her beloved younger brother, Violet's life has been consumed by an anger she struggles to control. Already a prisoner to her own nation, now she has been sentenced to death for her crimes.
But one decision could save her life.
To enter the kingdom of Patrus, where men rule and women submit.
Everything about the patriarchy is dangerous for a rebellious girl like Violet. She cannot break the rules if she wishes to stay alive.
But abiding by rules has never been Violet's strong suit.
When she's thrust into more danger than she could have ever predicted, Violet is forced to sacrifice many things in the forbidden kingdom ... including forbidden love.
In a world divided by gender, only the strongest survive...

Review

I am finally able to sit it down and write this review. Lately, I am a big fan of dystopian novels; just like the rest of the world, I guess. Seeing as how Hunger Games and  Divergent were so popular. I feel that this series is another great one to add to the list!

I love the whole premise of this new world. Women and men often see the world from different eyes. Who would rule better? Many people today say that if women were in power, the world would be more peaceful. This series explores a world that has two countries: one ruled by women and one ruled by men. The whole political structure thought up by the author is quite interesting.

I also very much enjoyed the main character. She is a prisoner who is given an opportunity to save herself by doing a favor for her country. Her character is strong and like-able. The reason she is a criminal are choices that any person would make in her stead.

I have read the first three novels in the series so far. I will be reading more soon, as I am dying to see what happens between Violet and Viggo.

Summary

"I'd want you to help me win a war..."

After discovering the shocking secret buried deep within The Green, Violet has a grave decision to make. Trust the woman who saved her, or not?

So far, everything about the woman has taken Violet by surprise. Her behavior has been honest and upfront - a refreshing change for Violet. Besides, with one of her loved ones hanging on life support, and the other close to falling completely out of reach, Violet doesn't exactly have a lot of choice.  

Her only way forward is to embark on a dicey excursion. For this, she knows she needs the Liberators' help - and must be prepared to take whatever risks that comes with. 

But what neither she, nor any of her new Liberator comrades can prepare for, is just how deep the lies of their homelands run...


Continue Violet and Viggo's journey in the EXPLOSIVE third book of the bestselling The Gender Game series.
