My two cents: If you're still reeling from the fact that The Hunger Games trilogy has concluded, then this one is for you! I can't recommend Marie Lu's debut novel enough. This star-crossed romance interwoven with lots of fast-paced action, a little bit of gore, lots of heart, and tons of post-apocalyptic detail will get you excited for this genre once again!
The storytelling is told in the two opposing voices of Day and June and I loved how this is captured in the changes in font type and colour as I romped through this unputdownable book.
I won't belabor this review. I loved this book and I can't wait to read Prodigy, its sequel.Verdict: Hunger Games fan, go get a copy of this book now!
I was perfectly happy with The Hunger Games. But this one has changed my mind about YA dystopian fiction - I will be looking out for the sequel!
