Beautifully written prose with haunting images and depth, Alyson Hagy pulled me into the dystopian world of Scribe, as narrator Shannon McManus’ southern twang enveloped me.
Justice Ascending by Rebecca Zanetti is the fourth book in the Scorpius Syndrome series. This is a post-apocalyptic romantic suspense set in Los Angeles. Justice Ascending shares Sami Steel the group’s lone female soldier’s romance with Tace Justice a former soldier and cowboy from Texas. Heat, suspense, ARC progression and a heartwarming romance kept me flipping the pages in search of an HEA.

Amazing world-building, brilliant characters and an overall tone of suspense throughout made Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine a thrilling read. This is the first book in the Great Library series and this dystopian fantasy delivers in spades.
I love a good dystopian, it is what drew me to the young adult genre and when I saw reviews for An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir I was excited about the promise of a roman-world with violence, oppression and dual narratives. When an opportunity to review the audio presented itself, I dove headfirst. I am so glad that I did. An Ember in the Ashes was beautifully written and executed.
I wanted to fall head over heels in love with Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard from the cover to the synopsis I was excited to begin this dystopian fantasy with magic and upheaval. In some respects, I completely adored Red Queen and in others, I am left hoping the next book in the Red Queen trilogy is stronger.
I was intrigued by the premise of The Walled City by Ryan Graudin and when an opportunity to review the audio edition presented itself, I jumped at the chance. Powerful, beautifully written and compelling this story kept me up until the wee hours of the morning.
