About the Author
Nina has always been creative, be it art, theatre, film – anything but singing – you don’t want to hear that! She earned her bachelor’s degree in Theatre and Military Science from Eastern Michigan University where she spent most of her time either on stage, rappelling down buildings, or working one of three jobs. After college she moved to Los Angeles, like so many other want-to-be actors, in pursuit of her dreams. She worked to pay the bills… but her love was acting and she was actually somewhat successful, mostly in commercials and independent films and she had a great time doing it. In 2008, after some major life changes, she self-published her first book PRIVATE WORDS UNSPOKEN, a compilation of poetry. Since then, her dreams have gotten bigger and she says her storytelling ability has gotten better. She has done everything from secretarial work to business development to being the Director of a private preschool. She has fired a M16 machine gun, jumped out of a C130 aircraft, and given birth – TWICE - but she always returns to her art. Though she’ll forever be a Michigan girl at heart, she now lives in the South with her husband and two beautiful children. If she isn't working on her latest story, you can find her lounging with a good book, playing with her kids, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to Starbucks coffee.

This author is one of my favorite authors to read. I was simply delighted to be chosen to read this story. It was so uniquely different from her "Blood Angel" series. I quickly inhaled it within a few hours. This story was simply amazing. The only downfall is I have to wait for the next installment. I hope I want have to wait too long.
The pace of the story is smooth and steady throughout the story, but fast when action occurs. This author has a natural way to ensnare the senses and emotions of the reader to allow for a better flow and personification of her characters. I found the storyline to be unique and original. Though, vampires and werewolves are involved, the concept of how Sector C was founded makes this very unique. I found my curiosity piqued. To which I found I had many questions throughout the story. That's a great sign. This story will keep you on your toes (so to speak) wondering if the twists and turns of this story will cease.
The main/secondary characters were well written. They were made realistically and believable given their situations. They appear to be strong, but having doubts and confusion, like what normal teenagers go through. Some are made to be strong, smart, humorous, selfish, brave, troublemakers, and questioning things that don't make sense.
This story does contain light romance, betrayal, suspense, intrigue, and mystery. Which IMO, makes a great story. I recommend this story to all readers. This is the first book in this series. Can't wait to get the next one.
I want go into the storyline, because readers will want to read the book description. All I can say is that: This is a great story.....Get it now.
The book cover is awesome. I love the letter/number scheme, making it very unique. I found no mistakes in grammar, so that I had no difficulty in reading this story. If you love to read about vampires/werewolves/outcasts this is one story you don't want to pass on.
This was an interesting book about another dystopian future where those living have to choose between becoming a vampire or lycanthrope, and if they don't fit the mold they become food or breeders. I really enjoyed that this had a twist on the way the future was.
So let's get to this review. At first I didn't like this book, I'll be honest. The first few chapters were a little too heavy on the information and I felt like some of the information could have been spread out throughout the book. I also got super confused when someone referred to Sector C and the character C. In fact the characters being called just by letters, while I understood it, really bothered me. After a time I wasn't sure if the character was a boy or girl or who was even talking, so to say it was a little disconcerting is an understatement. Also, there wasn't much description of the way the characters looked, I finished the book and have no idea what the main character looked like.
That being said, I did enjoy this book. The newness of the idea (choosing between vampirism and lycanthropy) was fascinating. How does one decide if they want to be one or the other for the rest of their lives? After getting through the first couple of chapters this was a fast read, and enjoyable. It's absolutely a YA novel as there is a romantic relationship which is sexy without sex. The characters are all pretty much teenagers, and the end left me hanging and wanting to read the next book.
I really look forward to seeing where Ms. Soden goes with this series, and I am interested in seeing what might be outside of sector C.
You will share the triumphs and uncertainties of the pretty and athletic 17-year old “A” (officially C65A53) -- who discovers deep and forbidden feelings for her classmate M (C65M126) when he asks her to help him to improve his performance on the obstacle course that will be one of the key challenges of Selection Week.
You will come to know A’s bunkmate and lifelong best friend C, and the irrepressible tomboy J. You will follow the only half-joking antagonism between D and F, who are well-matched in masculine magnetism, strength, and wit.
The story unfolds irresistibly, carrying you along the journey to the release celebration, when you learn each of the fifteen students’ fates. But there is even more intrigue in store. The conclusion will leave you wanting to know more about these young people you have come to know so well.
