In 2021 the world as we know it changed. The government collapsed, and the worst characteristics of human nature were shown as the world fell into ruins. Years after The Fall, the Tribes that were established are still at war. They still fight to keep what they pillaged, and most of all, they fight to keep their lies a secret. In a world filled with deception, nothing is as it seems.

I was born into this world.

Hunter Marks was molded into this world; a General— a person cold and harsh.A person meant to kill me. We were told to just believe.

We were taught to never question.

We’re supposed to be robots, and accept our roles in this altered society.

Too bad Hunter and I don’t follow the rules.

And we’re a hell of a lot stronger than they ever thought possible.

They’ve been searching for the world’s deadliest weapon.

It’s me.

And I’m not following the leader any more.

Firstly thank you to Cassandra for letting me take part in this tour. I have previously read Cassandra’s book Flawed Perfection and I LOVED it. so when I was asked if I would take part in this tour I immediately said yes. This book was a very different read to Flawed Perfection.

At first I found this book hard to read. The first third of the book I didn’t really enjoy. I found it to be quite stiff. I just couldn’t seem to get into the rytham of it. Somewhere between 30 and 40% i started to enjoy this book and found I actually couldn’t put it down. The next thing I knew I was almost 60% of the way trough.

I loved Kate and Hunter. They are very likeable characters and you couldn’t help but want them to survive.

In the beginning it was very difficult to get a grasp on how the world was. I knew it was supposed to be this post apocalyptic world but the details were pretty hazy. The story is told through Kates eyes and as she has been lied to her whole life it was pretty hazy to her too. She knew they were lying to her but she also didn’t know how the world truly was.

I thought this book was more focused on Kate and Hunter and their budding romance than the dystopian aspects.  The scenes between Kate and Hunter are definitely the best parts of the book. I liked the instant attraction that they had to each other. I hated how they had to keep fighting how they felt because of everyone else. I could feel the turmoil this put Kate through.

Kate changes a lot over the course of the book but so does Hunter. Kate brings out this softer side of him which I enjoyed. His tribe have only ever seen his harsh General side but when he’s alone with Kate you get to see this loving sweet man.

Although this book got off to a shaky start, I really enjoyed it.

There was no cliffhanger ending but I think there is a lot more of the world to explore throughout the series.

About Cassandra Giovanni

Cassandra doesn’t remember a time when she wasn’t writing. In fact, the first time she was published was when she was seven years old and won a contest to be published in an American Girl Doll novel. Since then Cassandra has written more novels than she can count and put just as many in the circular bin. Her personal goal with her writing is to show the reader the character’s stories through their dialogue and actions instead of just telling the reader what is happening.

In 2013 she branched out by using her artistic illustrating talents to publish her first Children’s novel, The Adventures of Skippy Von Flippy: Tales of Friendship (Skippy Tales, #1). Cassandra released her first New Adult novel, Love Exactly, which became an Amazon Bestseller overnight in June of 2013. She’s currently working on her new New Adult Contemporary Romance, Beautifully Flawed. The first novel in the series, Flawed Perfection is scheduled to be published on March 7, 2014.
