I don't usually like to compare books in reviews but this one was undoubtedly a mix of The Selection and The Handmaid's Tale with occasional echoes of The Hunger Games. And that's pretty much it. If you've read all three of these books, you've pretty much sussed what the story is about. Not that it wasn't an enjoyable read, I really liked being able to get lost in the familiarity but I just wished it had taken a twist that would have taken the story up a level. I might still be tempted to carry on the series.
