    I was intrigued by the concept of this story Unfortunately it missed the mark There are major issues with world building character development and the plot In addition awkward word choices and sentences impede the flow She didn’t have much longer to beThey made it through the secret door and down to the basement unmolested In the first case live would be a better choice and in the second undetected I would have happily ignored these bits and motored along but the real problem I have with this story is how illogical it was They could track the blood if it hit the ground The blood from her injured feet went unnoticed Now either the sentence isn't getting across that she doesn't notice the blood on her feet or it is stating that it wouldn't be noticed by trackers which negates the previous statements and concerns about the blood Video games were popular among the men of the teams The females had the option of learning to cook or medical training Leader training would not have this division A female could never lead with the perceived ineuity in skills Plus it turns out that a male co conspirator takes the same course as Marie He had no doubt his soldiers could overtake the puny overemotional sheep He would rule the world Everyone would bow to his genius He would roll in money command his warriors and rid the planet of the weak It's going to take than 50 soldiers to do that Seriously?Tyson likes to break in subpar warrior girls and any he impregnates will be reared so how does this makes sense? The implant given to the female warriors prevented pregnancy Except when it doesn't Two hours later the young man was laid to rest Two hours to dig a grave for a pair of people who have experience? No Super villain bent on taking over the world doesn't password his computer?Live munitions drill with orders to kill or survive using your take over the world with fifty soldiers? Would you choose a crossbow over a gun in this instance? You're trained in hand to hand combat and a couple bitch slaps break you? Unnecessary skulking makes one look suspicious especially when in the next scene one waltzes through a room with no one paying attention Since it made so much sense the first time let's repeat it Rescue plan that gets the hostage but has no plan for where to go after Melodramatic but conveniently well timed interruption of the ill fated plan sees the drama llama make several appearances at death beds And finally there are just some inaccuracies about how the Army does things regarding funerals and job placement I would have rated this a bit higher if the instances of logic fail weren't so numerous While the simple prose and emotional lobotomies of the characters didn't help I was willing to write the first off as a YA novel and the second as brain washingtraining I have difficulty imagining who I would recommend this story to; the military aspects are wrong the dystopian is barely formed the suspense barely gets one buzzing and the romance is non existentA copy was provided to me for a No Glitter Blown reviewReviewed for Hearts On Fire Reviews

    I was given this copy in exchange for an honest reviewFirst hot cover I've seen it a time or two and these two are hot together good choice While I'm not a big fan of dystopia I tried really hard not to let that get in the way of the storyThere were a few things though I really didn't like Silas and TysonI understand Silas is trying to make a new race of people to take over the world or whatever buthe talks about raping his housekeeperservant saying she cried when he first starting doing it but after punishing her a few times she stopped doing it and he didn't care if she did it in privacy she could cry herself dry he just didn't wanna witness it Now I understand that he's supposed to be the bad guy and oh how he was and it made me hate him and everything it was supposed to do while writing such a despicable character I just really didn't like itIt put me off of the story And Tyson? He was scum too talking about taking Marie and the things he would do and how he always tried to best her I found myself wishing that someone would shoot him in the head much like he does so easily to just about anybody who crosses him Overallnot off to a good startGunner is in love with Marie and they start a secret relationship he's sweet and you can tell he really cares about her as innocent as she is you can tell she really cares for him as well He fights for her and fights to protect her That's what ya wanna see in a good book boyfriend Tyson is the epitome of a bad person and I dunno why I felt he redeemed himself at the end and I felt a little sorry for him wasn't expecting that lol I don't really wanna ruin it with spoilers but if Dystopians are your thing you should definately read this it's a good story just not my type and of course Gunner and Marie have their HEA I'm a sucker for a HEA

    I received a free ARC for an honest review I really enjoyed this book it caught my attention when the young girl running from the hospital So you have the breeders and the warriors You have this man called Silas who governed the island and then you have Tyson Gunner and Marie warriors for Silas They try to keep order and if something is out of line they would try to keep peace or shoot and kill if someone trying to escape The way most of the people brought to the island Silas would go visit the parents and offer them money for there child and depending on there circumstance the parent would accept and the child at 16 and up was sent to this island Now Tyson Gunner were from same team Marie was from another but many times Gunner would come around Marie to help her with any exercises on how to protect herself or defend herself They were like competing to see who's better But Gunner liked Marie a lot now Marie had no experience with boys since she left early age and was working to bring food to the table So one night Gunner surprises Marie where she would go at nights to relax a little and asked if she don't mind some practice and so another night they meet practicing and he kisses her finally she's aware of what love is next time they meet surprisesIt's kind of like the Hunger Games story but you find out who you can trust or not at the end you will not be disappointed makes you love and hate some characters but then you wish the end wasn't how it was but good ending First Book by this author Tracey Steinbach and I loved it

    35 stars Dystopian MF RomanceThis wasn't a bad story but I didn't entirely get the entire Island thing With the games they had to play all I could think of was this reads like The Hunger GamesThere was a fair amount of violence but I didn't feel connected to any of the characters so was unmoved by it The story never gave me the feeling it was set post World War 3 so fell short for me as being 'dystopian' In fairness to the author it was well written and edited just not what I expected I reuested a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review

    I was looking for a good dystopian besides all of the best selling books already out to see if there are any different I was given this book for an honest genuine reviewI was a bit disappointed with this one the world building was a bit lack luster it's a dystopian based on island children in poor families that can't really feed them sell them to a mysterious stranger that promises he will give them money and take the children off their hands and care for them but he's only doing it to create soldiers and breeders and if you result to be useless he gets rid of themi was looking for in the world building so I could really see it in my mind the idea of the plot was good but it was also lacking the dialogue was also weird the flow of the story was choppy I had issues with the characters personalities the beginning was weird and confusing I so wanted to love this story but I just didn't

    I am a fan of this authors work So obviously when this book was released I jumped on it and purchased it And not so surprisingly enough it was great I really enjoyed it The twists and turns were great and at times I couldn't put it down because I needed to know what was next The only downside to this book was that it was short I wanted If this book ever got made into a series it would be absolutely perfect Overall I would most certainly recommend to friends

    Review by Jaycee for BOOKS 'N COZY SPOTS BOOK REVIEWS wwwTalon pscom copy provided by publisher for honest reviewA rather gruesome and very gripping beginning to this post WWIII piece of the world that exists because of a zealous ideologue and operates in semi secrecy as is typical of such a parasite Children are bought under misleading circumstances from destitute families looking to survive and for their children at least to prosper in a tenuous world In fact the children are groomed as soldiers to ultimately fight for the zealot’s twisted goals or to breed new soldiers who will ultimately fight for the zealot’s twisted goals The intention is that none of them will ever see their old life again post training and indoctrination mimicking the current real world manipulation of children in a very adult game of chanceOther nefarious goings on are background issues alluded to but not detailed which is unfortunate as they might have solidified what could have been a truly defined villain and upped the dark elements normally characteristic of a dystopian setting Their lack was not essential but flesh particularly of the rotting kind in this type of tale is almost always key in consuming a reader in the dark aspects of the world as opposed to merely having them along for the rideNotwithstanding the HH are pretty immediately defined described and known to the reader as characters to be cheered along their tortuous path Two of the soldier class by virtue of their forbidden pairing are plunged into the truth of the world they inhabit and along with a trusted group of awakened rebels fight the good fight and ultimately let the real world in on the atrocities both taking place and planned for its future The set up of the island world of misfit toys as I came to think of them was succinct and well defined in a minimum of narrative or at least a very effectively used narrative Most excellent The HH similarly were easy to “get” as a reader and to invest in I liked the people they were as well as the fight against who they were intended to becomeIn fact I liked it all so well that I was somewhat disappointed there wasn’t in depth detail though I realize that very often stories of this genre can be bogged down with excess narrative But this story is there The bones are most excellent and as a short story the whole of it succeeds But I can’t help but feel a bit deprived of the complete villain and what made him design this fate for the world I can’t help but feel a longing to know about the demi villain and what in the end made him fall on his own swordfiguratively as well as literally I can’t help but wonder how or if the less strong of the misfit toys were re acclimated to the real world and not merely in a brief summative epilogueThis is a really good short story that begs to be a full fledged novel; full of darkness and blood and guts and then the light at the end of the misery Tracey Steinbach is a storyteller; that much is evident As a reader I’m just asking for of a really good thing

    Marie is a young women who has learned to fend for herself and her family after the death of her father in WWIII At least until a man came to visit offering Marie a better life for both herself and her mom and siblings The deal go with him to his island where she will be taken care of and given an education Her mom receives a lump sum essentially as paymentGunnar is a military brat being raised solely by his father His dad was lured to give his son to the man in exchange for furthering of his training and a donation to the militaryThe man take Marie Gunnar and many others to an island The man Silas started his island to create his own colony On the island he educates all of the children he has brought here but as the education progresses they are separated into two groups The breeders and the warriors The breeders are the most beautiful women he could find their sole purpose is to reproduce his or select warrior’s childrenBoth Marie and Gunnar are warriors but on separate teams There has been a connection between them The attraction has grown but they both know that it’s not safe to pursue At the same time the danger on the island is growing Can they keep themselves and the others on the island safe? This is a fairly short book and because of that there is a lack of depth to the characters backgrounds Once on the island the story is fairly well developed among certain characters but there are others that you’re really don’t understand their reasoning or motivationI enjoyed the story as long as I didn’t think about it too hard Gunnar and Marie is a nice story but it’s not something I would seek out This genre is a bit out of my wheelhouse although I have read other dystopian books such as “Hunger Game” This one just seemed to lack the depth I enjoy the type that draw you in and make you forget time and life happening around you The authors writing does put her on a list of authors that I’d like to see what else they write So although this book may not be my favorite it’s not for a lack of good writing style

    I received the book for free in exchange for an honest reviewA strong first chapter can make or break a book and Gunning for Marie starts out exceptionally thrilling We are immediately drawn into the small world of its own the island presents There's no running away you're trappedA disadvantage of starting out so strong were definitely the raised expectations I had for the rest of the book This way the sometimes not so elegant ways of telling a story stood out later on To give an example we read the life story of everyone important right in the beginning This is problematic in a few ways You tend to mix them up because they're so similar and you don't know the characters yet They didn't really fit there in some cases and interrupted the story It got boring after the second story Neither did I care for the style of writing in that part it was a bit too plain for my tasteAs the story went on I found I cared less about these imperfections It's a decent story with decent characters and a nice epilogue and I have a hard time finding much to critize though we Viennese looooove critizing ; The story actually kept me hooked and I read most of it in one sitting Still the whole book was missing a feeling of realness to it it felt like a daydream Anyway the realness is a matter of both talent and practice so go on practicing dear author and you'll get there ; You could maybe start by making your characters not entirely good or bad but something in between Silas seemed almost comically evil actuallyI'd say overall 35 solid stars

    I got this book in exchange for an honest reviewThis book was a great read It was not one of those books that dragged on for ever which is a good thing I love books that give you the idea they are trying to share right away and don't drag out some things It gets hard in some books when you are dealing with the futureFrom the get go I loved the characters Marie is a very strong woman and you get a great understanding of her as you are reading I love that you can tell how she feels about things as they happen You don't have to try and guess what bugs her I also love the relationship she has with the soldiers in her group and with Gunnar You can tell she takes care of her own That is a great ualityThe love story in this book was developed well and not too rushed You don't go from point A to point B in like 24 hours which is a good thing I hate when you are reading a love story and you fall in love in 24 hours I just can't how that works In this book we get a great idea of how they started to fall for each other but they let it work out on it's ownWithout giving the ending away this book is definitely one that will leave you wanting to finish it uickly It was not rushed and I loved how the people involved got what they deserved This was not one of those pretty hand holding books and that makes it better for me They have to fight for what they wantPros Great storyline great charactersCons Too Short need Overall rating Highly recommended
