The conflict between Cori and Nathan is balanced by her friendship with another young adult, Dylan, who is determined to help her escape. Except when Nathan takes over, the rules change. Cori is immediately enrolled in Nathan's militia training, a brutal training camp that's designed to break her. However, as time passes and she out performs her "class" of six, she gets assigned to the trade security line of work. The more she learns about the different layers of society, the more she realizes her chances of escaping are close to zero.
Cori must keep her wits about her to survive in this dystopian world. She's seen firsthand that the smallest of sleights to their Sovereign Nathan is a death sentence. Can she beat this terrible man and save herself?
I admired Cori's character arc, and her unswerving focus. She's gutsy and brave, physically tough and yet emotionally vulnerable, compassionate and resolute - all of this at 17!
ER Arroyo is a fine writer, and this is a story I will read again, which is a high compliment in my world.

Sovereign is set in a time typical Dystopian, Post-Apocalyptic books ignore. No, it's not set in the moment right after a huge apocalyptic world catastrophe or hundreds of years after such an event. Instead, Sovereign follows a rebellious teenage girl, Cori, who is a citizen of Antius, a bunkered up civilization teeming with devious technological terrors and a brutally sick leader, Nathan. Cori, an orphan of Antius, has immunity to the mind controlling techniques and substances used to create a subservient Dystopian society.
The plot was original, fast-paced and intriguing. There were some amazing supporting characters in this book that I would love to continue to follow, including Titus, Tyce, and Marsi. Cori is a worthy heroine of dystopia- she is rebellious, has difficulty trusting or understanding her feelings and at times is self-sacrificing, All of the accolades for Cori are well-deserved, but she is surrounded by backstage heroes that I admire too. I liked Dylan as Cori's love interest, especially as they have been best friends, but I kind of like the sexy Tyce or even the stalwart Titus.
Here's hoping the next book uncovers some of my burning questions and resurrects some of these characters!
The pacing was excellent in this book, didn't lull in any spots hardly at all. E.R.'s descriptive narrative made me immediately loathe the antagonist, Nathan. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but when Cornelius, Antius's leader suddenly passes away, the man who protected her from Nathan (Cornelius's son) takes over. She is immediately put into Antius's version of military or special forces. Cori is tough, tougher than she'd like to believe, but it was wonderful watching her transform throughout this book. As the plot thickens and action begins to build, you start to see where the build up is leading to, and it delivers and delivers over and over again.
I highly enjoyed this book, and the second one Sovereign: The Offering. This is a MUST READ!
