This starts out as a dystopian novel. There are the lower class "Drudges" and the higher class "Artists." Omni is the government who decides your fate, pulls the puppet strings, etc. Drudges are able to take an aptitude test when they're old enough and hope to be placed into one of the higher class categories. The main character Pierce (modern version of Paris) is a Drudge, but is good looking, strong, heroic, etc. He eventually catches public favor when he saves Harmony (Helen) from an overzealous fan in a crowd. From there the story gets a little tedious with its insta-love, and one-dimensional characters. But it did have great potential...

I received this book as a gift
Omni is a colorful dystopian where manipulation and appearances triumph over morals. Everyone is able to be bought with deceit and heavy-handed threats. The world is detailed and reads seamlessly, it feels natural. Each new bit of knowledge about the society fits and it’s almost as if you can feel the monotony and clockwork meticulousness of the Omni rulers.
Pierce is a hard-headed knight. He comes to the rescue, fists swinging. Gallant, chivalrous one moment and roguish the next, he is sexy in his rough around the edges way. A little bit of a bad boy, Pierce is always in trouble, he doesn’t know when to stop and gives into his impulses. Underneath, he’s a big softie with a huge heart. The way he looks at Harmony, as if his world begins and ends with her smile will make you melt.
Harmony is trapped in a world of expectations and public appearances. Her wants are lost to the greater needs of the public. Harmony yearns for freedom even though she’s in the lap of luxury as an Artist, it isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Harmony lives in a perpetual state of fear and has no control over her love life. Harmony’s terror is real, some scenes are graphic and horrifying, the anxiety builds rapidly. When Harmony meets Pierce, it’s like she saw the beauty in the world for the first time, to possibility of happiness. Harmony puts everyone before herself and her selflessness is taken for weakness. Harmony grows and learns her voice.
Together, Harmony and Pierce are perfect, they complete each other. They feel safe, comfortable, and excited almost immediately. There’s an airy, sweetness to their relationship despite everything working against it.
Hale and Pierce’s friendship was more of a brief interlude than anything else. Their interactions (when they happened) were playful and brotherly, you could feel their love and trust. However, there wasn’t enough of it. Hale and Pierce’s friendship is a crucial element of what makes Pierce the man he is. The sense of joy and hope that Hale brings to the world was not as potent as it could have been. In short, Hale was a sweet, charming guy that I wanted more of and was lost to a whirlwind of relationship drama.
The climax was lacking the detail of the forward. The suspense, the terror, the loss, none of it was as impassioned as the opening scene. From the moment of doom to the end, Pierce’s reactions were muted and didn’t mesh well with his character. Up to that point, he was fiery and impulsive and suddenly, acceptance? It didn’t sit well.
The bid war between the Superiors was puzzling. The obsessive need to possess Pierce lacked foundation other than the superfluous notion that he could be popular. While he did have a fan encounter or two, the mass hysteria of celeb status was absent.
