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. I really enjoyed this book and it is available today45 Get Out of My Head StarsIf you are like me you have started some # of dystopias excitedly thinking that they will be about a post apocalyptic future filled with a great story and world building only to find out that it is a love triangle thinly veiled in an underdeveloped world OR it is basically a romance filled with insta love and inner dialogue about the ever changing color and dilation level of the love interests eyes OR it is about some special snowflake girlboy who learns they have enormous power and then easily defeats there nemesis after some inner turmoil of accepting their power For all of you readers who have suffered through those dystopias like me I want to you meet TATETate doesn’t have a superpower she isn’t really special in any usual uantifiable way she isn’t the most beautiful girl in the land she actually has a scar on her lip and she doesn’t have a tragic past She has grown up poor but utterly loved by her family In fact most of her thoughts about the future before being chosen by the guild are of what profession she can chose to be able to help her family financially The only thing we find that is truly special about Tate is her will to fight to surviveTate has been chosen by the guild to become a Water Bearer a position so shrouded in mystery that no one outside the guild seems to know exactly what that entails Tate finds out the hard way when she starts hearing a voice in her head and knows the smile she just saw in the mirror is not her own She must fight with someone else for control of her body and no one has won that battle before To me war used to be merely words in books I read about fighting and death but I had no context Living with General Dagon in my head had taught me that war wasn’t powerful words used to convey conflict but it was something else far frightening far deadly I was an unwilling passenger with the General to the battlefield Tate fights with him every day just to stay conscious and have any control of her own body They are so different and he has conuered many hosts over the years The General might have the advantage in this fight Him being in her head is degrading and his favorite game is to lull her into thinking she is safe only to show up again when she least expects it I clasped my left hand over my mouth The sensation was nauseating The way he used me was such a violation of my free will that I couldn’t stomach the idea of letting him speak again What I really liked about this bookTate is never over the top She is a normal teenage girl caught in a horrible situation She is a little shy and unsure of herself but she is also strong Not in a physical sense but in resolve and character she never gets super human strength or can take over the general’s experiences to be effective in combat or anything like that The only thing that she can rely on to save her from the General is her will and her brain Thank you You do not need to have a superpower to be important in a storyTate grew up loved so she values family and people over things She is devoted to those she loves and will do whatever is necessary to protect her family even if it costs her I love that the Shawntelle Madison used a real book The Art of War to help teach Tate tactics and help her to find ways to combat the General Madison changed the title and a few of the words to fit better into her story but the ideas were the same Know thyself and thy enemy If you do you should not fear any battle you encounter with them If you only know yourself for every battle you have won you have also lost If you do not know yourself or your foe you will suffer defeat every single time There is a smidgen of romance but just a smidgen enough to keep the hopeless romantic in me at bay There are no declarations of undying love or I saw him across the room and my knees buckled nothing too cheesy There are two people working toward a common goal and they happen to have a few feelings for each other over time It was simple sweet and just enough to help Tate by knowing she wasn’t alone there are people who wanted to help herI enjoyed the premise of the story One of my biggest fears is that my mind will go and I won’t have control of my body It would be so much worse to be a passenger along for the ride while someone makes decisions for me that I would never agree to Worse still is blacking out and waking up not knowing what my body did while I wasn’t there It built up a delicious tension that made my stomach knotThe technology behind how they prepared the water bearers for the transfer of consciousness and how that came about took something very real in nature and tweaked it a bit It was an interesting foundation that I hope the author builds on in following books She gave just enough information to peak my interest and not so much information that I got bored with it or tried to pick the science apartFor me this was a great beginning to a series There is an introduction to the world with a bit of backstory and you are shown what life is like currently The problems with the current society are slowly introduced and there was no info dumping Right now there is a really good foundation to build the rest of the series on and I’m excited to see what will happen nextA few of my fearsThere were some things that are touched on in the book but left a little vague This is the first book though so I hope in next books these are fleshed out a little I have a lovehate thing happening with dystopias currently in that sometimes they start out really strong and then by the third book they crash and burn So that is always my fear with any new dystopian I read since there have only been a few that I have ♥♥♥ed until the very end BUT this isn’t Shawntelle Madison’s first rodeo She has completed a trilogy before so I’m really hopeful that like Neal Shusterman’s Unwind series she can complete a really strong story all the way throughOverallI found this an easy story to fall into with good pacing and interesting characters Tate is my Girl and I will gladly be following her on the rest of the journey Thank you to Crushstar Multimedia LLC via Netgalley for the arc

received an advance reader edition of this book from the author via Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review45 StarsI picked this book up and was immediately hooked It is a very good thing that I did not have any plans on the day I started this book because this was the kind of book that is almost impossible to put down This book first came to my attention on Goodreads where I noticed it was getting great reviews so I immediately reuested a copy from Net Galley I avoided reading any reviews that gave away any part of the plot and I am so glad that I did because this book really surprised me with the direction it took I loved the characters Tate Sullivan is a tough 16 year old girl She is in no way helpless and is willing to fight when necessary She has not lead a life of privilege prior to being thrust into the world of the Guild Where other girls would be dazzled by fancy dresses and servants Tate misses her family and her previous life Her cousin Zoe whose life has taken an almost identical path as Tate's is eually tough while other girls like Eva are eager to enter the world of the GuildI was so happy to read a Young Adult novel that did not have a major focus on romance There is just a bit of romance in this book I really wish that the romance was not a part of this story I actually think that it took a bit away from the main plot I honestly do not believe that Tate would have been worried about any romantic feelings in the situation she is in just my opinion The bit of romance is really what stopped this book from being a 5 star read for me but
