"It was a brilliant dystopian plot, full of turns that I wasn't expecting. It reminded me a bit of The Hunger Games and Brave New World, in that the government was very much in control - so much so that it could control the most intimate of features in its inhabitants' lives." - A World of Words, Kayleigh
"I will say that anyone who loved The Hunger Games will definitely love this book. They will sit and tensely wait for the next book in this series. After all, everything is not as it seems." - The Musings of a Book Addict, Sandra.

From the Author
was inspired from both novels that I loved reading, The Hunger Games
and The Handmaid's Tale
. It also is a culmination of ideas in society, personal experience, and of course creativity. In China, there is the one child rule. How far away is our world from saying, "you have one child, that's acceptable but anymore would take away from the resources we need for survival. You must hand over your second child, to take someplace else." One would hope that we'd speak out but if the government was oppressive, and if there was no free speech, you might quickly fear for you and your family's life. It's easy to see how the world could quickly become Dystopian, especially when that government is giving you everything you need to survive and could just as quickly cut you off and throw you into the Gravelands, or worse - kill you.
