I’m just going to say it straight out, I wasn’t a fan of this book. It wasn’t the romance. The characters, or the situation. It was “The Society”. I’m sorry to those who haven’t read this book yet, I’ll try to refrain from divulging too much information about this book. This book was wicked in a sense that it just frustrated me that so much was happening in this book thanks to The Society.

What’s The Society, you may ask? Well The Society was a dreadful newly appointment government that was meant to keep world order. Everything is controlled. From the food they eat to the clothes they wear to when they’re married, have children, can’t have children, die, jobs they are given based on a percentage of probability. It’s all down to the minuscule detail that people of this world wouldn’t even imagine. It can’t even be called a dictatorship, because there isn’t somebody making great big speeches over intercoms or “ports”. There’s a group of higher society members that control every possible outcome. /rant

I’m only reading the second book because I want to know what will happen to Cassia and her family after they’ve been shipped off to the farm lands because her mother wrote an important report of her findings when she was sent to, along with a few other important plant people, to a few farms to inspect potentially threatening crops. So many things happen in this first book I’m not quite sure of it all, hopefully by the end I’ll be able to properly piece things together.
