Lly is the same handsome boy she is pitted against in General Dagon’s deadly game uinn desires nothing than to end the life of General Dagon who has taken over Tate's mind While romance blooms between Tate and uinn General Dagon plots to eventually take over Tate's body and love might end before it even begin. But sometimes it s the most unexpected plans that lead to the most fascinating places Well you can say that againIt s taken me a few days to review this and I wish I could say it s because I ve been so darn busy but the truth is I was am torn on how I feel about this It s not the best written book out there and the MC isn t a kick ass heroine that will bust kneecaps the way a normal girl would eat chocolate ravenously but the actual plot is amazing and uniue Fewer and fewer are born to be a Water Bearer she saidI don t think I am one I tried to pull my hand away I d make a poor servantHer lips which had formed a straight line now offered a chilling smile My dear you are a prize I hope you re not snatched away before I have a chance to bid on youBid on me My swallow got stuck in my throat I fought to take in a breath as my chest constricted What are you sayingCongratulations are in order Tate You ve passed the test Welcome to the Guild a circle of rich noble people who every year like to hold an auction and buy servants or Water Bearers If they pass the test these people will never see their families again and instead go live a life of servitude in the city Everyone other than Zoe and I picked up their suitcases Will we get a chance to say goodbye to our families I finally askedDidn t you read the packet Astrid continued to usher us out of the room I was the last to leave so I followed Zoe You re Aspirants of the Water Bearers You won t ever see your family again No one is allowed to pollute you Tate passes the test and is auctioned off to the General an old horrible man What she doesn t know yet is that she will never be your run of the mill servant My trembling fingers searched every contour of my face Touched my lips Pressed into dry cheeks Nothing had changed Yet my life had taken an unexpected turnI d been bought and sold and now I knew the horrific truth General Dagon wasn t deadHe lived inside of me Yep Basically the new servants are actually new hosts where the rich and the noble can transfer their souls into and live foreverMy problem For about 50% I was bored Living inside Tate s head was a chore I have no idea how the General pulled it off and her internal monologues grated on me Every time I tried to come up with reasons for her I kept thinking But still and it sucks so hard when you find yourself bored enough to start cleaningCleaning I never clean unless I absolutely have to It s cool I live at home so it s not like I live in a barn or anything And when it finally did pick up I d lost interest which is an even bigger shame However I really really loved the idea of this book and I look forward to the next one coming out so we can finally get some answers but Tate killed it for me There was so much she could ve done and said rather than sleep and eat and it took her nearly half the book to finally come up with an idea worth reading about Ick3 stars

REVIEW Under My Skin Immortality Strain #1

Een year olds must take a simple test and Tate's result thrusts her into the Guild's world one where they hide horrible plans for those they select Tate must fight the relentless General Dagon for control of her mind body and soul to keep the one precious thing she has always taken for granted herselfHer only a. Close but no cigar In the sea of young adult dystopian books out there I think this one really stands out The concept is truly fabulous and wholly original I ve not read anything like it in this genre Though it isn t hard to suss out what is going to happen after the first few chapters and the blurb gives it all away I think it is exciting if the details of the plot are left to a surprise For the first 30% of the book I was fully engaged Honestly it is creepy as hell and I was good freaked out I was preparing for this to be a 4 or 5 star read then things started going a little wonky First of all I m just going to throw this out there Not all books are made to be a romance I HATED the romantic aspect of this story What a contrived circumstantial paring Tate and uinn were Just strange I would have much rather this book have no romance at all or have the romance come in book 2 The covert kissing and holding hands when these two have nothing in common and don t talk at all was just ridiculous to me I also thought that resistance was dumb as rocks Seriously rocks Why on earth would you tell Tate anything when you know that Dagon could be listening at any time He had moments when he was paying attention and Tate didn t realize why not when she was with the resistance or when she was talking to her servant girls My biggest issue with the book was how underdeveloped the world building was What happens to the people who don t get bid on Do they get killed Become other servants Why would the Guild like stronger people Doesn t that seem risky Because we know things can go haywire because of uinn s story And that side plot with uinn s brother Weird It all just became the same tired YA dystopian stuff that I ve read before What was a really interesting and uniue concept was totally wasted I wanted danger creepiness conseuences difficulty and LESS ROMANCE and I never thought I d be saying that Maybe I ll have better luck with my next one in this genre Copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

SUMMARY Ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Shawntelle Madison

Everyone wants to either be a member of the Guild or work for them Little does the populace know that the Guild hides sinister secretsFor Tate Sullivan life in her small coastal town is far from glamorous The affluent lives of the Guild members and their servants isn't something she has ever wanted But all sixt. Rather impressive Dystopias tend to feel hit or miss for me so I wasn t sure if the story would live up to its cover But it does When you start reading this it s like there s an atomic bomb that s been unleashed because you will not be able to not pay attention to everything happening It s crazy obsessive I just couldn t stop readingExcept it s not what I liked most about this story What was so well done was the ambience that was both moderately dark and mysterious with a touch of suspense and giving a feeling of reality to the story Tate is one marvellous heroine She s exceptional by the way she thinks her assurance and how greatly she wants to survive and make a change Help people However I was never one hundred percent sure why she veritably passed the test which of what I recall lasted something close to one minute What did she do What was with the touch Those are uestions I asked myself throughout the reading and if some little information was given on those points here and there it wasn t enough to convince me So I hope there will be being said about it in the seuelThis is undoubtedly very different from the dystopias I have read before There may be a war setting in here too this is common to every dystopian book as I realized but everything else is distinctive from the others The main subject is uniue and introduces another problem the society might have the characters are in struggle from the beginning and there s actually a lot that is being done in this first book which makes it satisfying by the end Plus it is the first time that I read about such an internal fight that multiple characters have Which was both riveting and terrifying but in a somewhat intriguing wayIt s a good thing that the romance is in the second and even third plan because it truly wasn t something I wanted to read as principal subject in this book or especially let it dictate the protagonist s choices It is rather implicit by moments and undeclared for the most part but the slow burn worked well I could easily see the couple survive and have an HEAwhich I hope they will indeed get no matter how things turn outAnother very significant theme is friendship since Zoe Tate s cousin is dear to her and she wants to protect her friend with all her strength Zoe has also been admitted to the Guild again no idea why and for both girls to survive in this war internal one mostly it will take power of will and motivation and for their believes to not falter The writing style was far better than I was apprehending having read some of my friends reviews It worked for me really well It wasn t too heavy or including so much stuff that everything would have been hard to follow Not at all The story was clear except for some uestions I had on the test and it s genuinely easy to embark into the storyWithout a doubt recommended for fans of simple yet complex plots and settings dystopias with a darker atmosphere and subject psychological aspects and love friendship and family as values for a main character
