Book Review: The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau

***Last time I’ll say this before you better assume it. SPOILERS, SPOILERS, SPOILERS!!!***

Review: 'The Jewel' by Amy Ewing

“Today is my last day as Violet Lasting. Tomorrow I become Lot 197.”

The Jewel is a shocking and compelling new YA series from debut author, Amy Ewing.

Review: "The Cecilia Paradox" by John Mantooth

4 of 5 stars.

Included in After the End: Recent Apocalypses edited by Paula Guran, this very brief story firmly establishes its ground rules and psychologically warped tone. 191 more words

The Nogiku series is an expansive and imaginative dystopian sci fi with a strong Japanese flavor. Although the concept is interesting, the writing did let it down a bit. 420 more words
