I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn’t connect with it. I tried for about two weeks before I was finally able to slog through it. The only reason I finished it is because I won the second book in a giveaway on Goodreads.
I don’t think I will be moving onto the second book though. Not unless the Zombie Apocalypse happens and I need something to read in between killing zombies and canning peaches, anyway.
What I liked:
– At the beginning of each chapter there were little snippets of the New Order’s Bill of Rights, Pledge of Allegiance, “10 Commandments of Personal Conduct”, a new Hippocratic Oath, and more. I think this helped with picturing how controlling the government was in the New Order. A couple examples below:
“I will use my position to eradicate illnesses and those individuals who breed illnesses. –Hippocratic Oath, 2020" Yikes.
“In a effort to maintain a peaceful society, the New Order and its affiliates may use any method of search and seizure necessary without provocation. — Bill of Trust, The American Republic, 2020"
What I didn’t:
– The whole book felt very rushed. There was no character development, which is what led me to not caring what happened to either of the main characters or the general population of the world in the book.
– The “love story” between Z and Tru felt forced, unlikely, and shallow. Z shows back up in her life after disappearing for years and BAM she’s in love with him and trusts him with her life? Come on. I know teenage girls can be hormonal and idealistic, but damn.
– Even with all the action, it was boring.
Would I recommend this book to family and/or friends?
– Ehhhh…..maybe. If you are super hard-core about reading every YA post-apocalyptic novel out there, then sure. There are a lot better options though, IMO.
Zared wants to expose their corrupt government and he needs something from Tru to make this happen. She helps him, while she isn't sure what's going on exactly. Tru knows people are keeping secrets from her and she's about to find out how big the lies of the people who are supposed to love her really are. She can't fight her enemies by herself and she has to make some difficult choices. Without proper information it's hard to decide who she should follow. What will the consequences of Tru's decisions be?
Regress is a fast-paced and gripping story set in the near future. The world has changed a lot. Tru is living in New Detroit, where science and technology are being used in mysterious ways. I liked S.F. Benson's world building. The political situation is being influenced by experiments and scientific research. It's interesting to see what such a nation will bring and how it is to grow up that way. I liked S.F. Benson's constant building of tension and I enjoy the way she works with the idea that a lot can change in a short period of time.
There are two narrators, Tru and Zared. I enjoyed reading the same story from different sides. Zared's chapters are shorter and they are very informative, Tru's are action packed and filled with drama and emotion. I loved this combination, it gives the story a good balance. I equally like Tru and Zared. They are both strong and resourceful. Love is what matters most to them and that makes them stand out. They have great chemistry and they look out for one another, which is sweet. They're fascinating main characters.
Regress is book one of The Alliance Chronicles. The ending made me crave more straight away. I loved this story and can't wait to find out what will happen to Tru and Zared.
