"The story is really creative and easy to follow. I find the main character, Violet, to be complex and layered, which is expected of a protagonist written to shake up the seemingly "perfect" society she is brought up in. I found so many unexpected twists in her journey, and my jaw was on the floor at the end."
"I love Utopian books! This one grabs you and pulls you into it's intriguing world."

The story goes that Violet, born and raised on the matriarch side of post-America goes to the patriarchal side of post-America in order to help the queen on a secret mission.
The Gender Game was a quick, easy read and had me trying to predict what would happen next. The author dropped hints that helped guide the story in a predictable way. For example, when Violet sees a picture of Viggo, she internally states that he’s attractive. Well, then it came as no surprise that when they met in person she had the hots for him and ended up spending all her time with this guy, falling for him.
Because of these obvious plot Easter eggs, I found myself trying to determine how the series will end. Then this little nugget arrived:
“That didn't stop me wondering whether things might change someday. Whether some queen and king might eventually ascend to the two nations' thrones and put an end to rules like this. Though I knew it was a dream. We had lived like this for centuries and it seemed that, as the years passed, both governments were only coming up with more enforcements to keep us ingrained in our ways. I didn't see why anything would change. At least not in my lifetime.”
Perhaps a Queen Violet and King Viggo in the readers future? I don’t know, but it’s my prediction.
While reading I didn’t know that there was a series at all, but thought it was a stand alone book. Silly me. Not only are there more books, but there are SEVEN in the series. Now, did I enjoy this? Sure. But enough to want to read about it six more times? No. This isn’t Harry Potter and it’s not even Hunger Games so... no. Based on the fact that the story doesn’t end until six books later, I’m going to walk away from this one. It’s not worth the commitment. (Also, the remainder of the series isn’t available in hardcover while the first story is, which was a huge turn off to me as a collector of hardcovers.)
If you want an interesting, fast paced YA read then sure, check this book out. But does it hold a candle to its claims of being a Hunger Games, Divergent Series contender? No.
I started reading this with some reservations, but it was very engaging and entertaining. The main thing I didn’t like was it ended in a cliff hanger that requires ours chasing the next book in the series. That sucks.

It advertises itself as something that would be interesting for a Hunger Games fan, but the writing and story really does not compare to the Hunger Games books. The writing is quite poor, and the character development a bit two dimensional.
The story is ok and the concept is interesting, which is why I read it in the first place. Annoyingly it finishes on a big cliff hanger which caused me to download the second book, which I regretted. The second book is even worse.
Worth a read if you go into it with an open mind, but not so much if you're looking for the next hunger games. It's also very short.
Very predictable storyline of who the central character will find attractive and where problems will stem from made me want to simply stop reading. Only the ending proving a surprise and saving the rating.
The main character seems to display emotion only to help the plot and not how you would expect (given the back story etc). The descriptive writing is poor in general and doesn't allow you to see what the author is seeing. Personally not interested enough to read the second book
It has similarities to the Hunger Games in that the protagonist is female and she can fight. That is about it really, which is a good thing if a book is to break away and independent.
It was pleasantly well written and I enjoyed the character and story development. So much so that I have bought the next book.
If you are looking for a good read which draws you in I would recommend this book.
