There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Of particular concern was the frequent misuse of the word "bemused". What kind of legitimate author believes it to be synonymous with "amused"? And what kind of editor allows that kind of basic error to go by unnoticed more than a dozen times? It distracted me from the overall content.
For the sake of your own literary reputation, please correct the electronic version immediately, and the hard copies before the next printing (if there is one).
I'm going to continue with the series, in hopes that book 6 doesn't leave me bemused (CORRECT USE OF THE WORD) by its grammar. If it does, then I don't know if I can continue to book 7.
Disclaimer: If I have any grammatical errors or typos in this post, please keep in mind that I'm not paid to write, nor do I have an editor.
The Gender Fall starts right where we left off with the last one. Everything is in chaos and several people are hurt and/or dying.
Through the whole book I was clutching my phone, waiting to see what would happen next, who would survive and how they were going to take down the two ruling societies who are now on the brink of war. I had no idea what was going to happen and didn't know there was going to be another book until I was about 75% done with it. I wanted to start screaming when I got to that last page because as I said before, that was the biggest cliff hanger I have ever been left in.
Bella Forrest's writing gets better and better with each book I think and this was so far her best. Her writing style was a lot smoother and deeper. I felt like we got to delve a lot deeper into the characters minds and the world building. She just keeps adding new layers to this horrible world and makes it even scarier with each book. You know how some book you're like, "I totally wouldn't mind living in there. I'd get to be best friends with my favorite characters and they could teach me everything they know and it would be awesome." Not so with this book. I would never wish to live in this world. It is so terrifying and I love how Bella has built the world and continues to build.
There was a part in here that was really hard for me to read because it hit pretty close to home. It was so hard to read and I appreciate how Bella incorporated it. She did make it pretty believable and really made me feel.
I also loved the character development in this book, but there were several things I wasn't a big fan of. Probably the biggest thing that bugged me was when there was something big going on and they needed to put all their focus into this, but then these two characters were swooning and drooling over each other. Don't get me wrong, I love a good romance, but only to a point, especially when it's in a dystopian novel that contains a lot of action in it. I loved the characters when they were focused on the war that was going on, but once they started slobbering over each other I wanted to slap them both.
There was plenty of action in this book. It felt like every time one scene ended and maybe we would get a little break and some happiness, something else happened and it was back to gripping the book and screaming on the inside as everybody got hurt and came close to death or died. The Gender Game series is one of the most intense series I've read and it didn't stop in this one. I cried really hard at some parts and my heart wouldn't stop pounding at others. These books have been one big roller coaster after the next.
Now, the ending. Oh my goodness that ending was brutal and intense and why would you just end it there and make us wait. I was expecting this to be the last book and then when I found out I was dreading the ending because I knew Bella would leave me screaming and crying for the next book in a corner, rocking back and forth like a crazy person. May 10 won't come soon enough and when it does I will read that book like my life depends on it.
I would rate this book 14+. It was really intense and there were a couple of scenes that might be upsetting for young ones. There was also a scene where a couple almost has sex, but they stop because they want to wait till their married. It was pretty detailed and I had to skip almost the whole chapter. I was pretty disappointed about this, but almost every book has had something like this, it just hasn't come quite so close.
Wonderful book all in all, probably 4.5 stars just because of the few complaints I listed above. Can't wait for the next book!

There are some emotional scenes and a devastating loss for the gang, especially one character in particular. Dark and heartless plots are exposed and just when you think Desmond and Elena can’t get anymore heartless, they stoop to even lower and crueller levels. The groups’ only hope to gain the Liberators’ and general publics’ support is Violet’s video of Tabitha, and so a risky mission is employed and we are left awaiting the next book to see how successful it really was.
On her own little mission with Owen to find Tim, Violet ends up in a massive plot twist, one I would never have expected to occur. Has she been double crossed by someone we all love and trust or is there a deeper, more twisted plot in place that we are yet to be enlightened to? Book five has a lot to answer for and book six best hurry along and get answering! I can’t wait!
