"Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even think about kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn...and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi's future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself.

But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they're set on convincing Vi to become one of them...starting by brainwashing Zenn. Vi can't leave Zenn in the Thinkers' hands, but she's wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous--everything Zenn's not. Vi can't quite trust Jag and can't quite resist him, but she also can't give up on Zenn.

This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play..."

I don't how this plot twist came into so familiarity into many books, but lately books like this completely throw me off my guard! And I LOVE IT! HAHAHAHAH!

First off this book is simply amazing! I love the futuristic feel of the book. The way everything was described was perfect. I adored the the plot twist that were in the book. While some were predictable others were not. The way the storyline flowed was awesome. I like the build up of the plot and how it lead to many different happenings!

I know this may sounds masochistic, but I like it when a relationship drives me crazy in a book. I guess, to me, it feels real. You can see the flaws in the relationship. It's not some prince charming, fall in love forever. I do like those too, but relationships that have fights, a love that drives you crazy, makes me happy. The relationship with Vi and Jag made me want to pull my hair out. I was so frustrated with them! I mean, really c'mon! Throw me a freaking bone here! Vi, I understood, but Jag dude, you have some serious issues!

I think what made this book irresistible was the storyline of the whole book. It not only grip you from the start, but had you all the way and would not let you go.  The way it unfolded before your eyes was amazing. I love how well Ms. Johnson wrote the book. It was written very well and easy to read. The futuristic part you can relate to and understand.

Now, the ending. As I said before, I have seen this trend come into lots of books I have been reading lately and you know what, it works. Yes, there was a cliffhanger, but nothing that you ever expect. If anything, this book just bites into you more, embedding its teeth into your skin. Yes, it's that good.

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. Awesome review. I just read Melissa's review as well for this and you both have definitely convinced me this is a book I need to read. Love the sound of Vi and I am very curious about that ending :)

  2. @Nic, you so need to read this!

  3. Talk about books with bite, eh?

    I'm kind of leery, mostly because of the cliffhanger. I may have to wait until book two come out before giving this one a go. But I love your enthusiasm, Savy.

  4. I loved Vi and I also was ticked with Jag. I just couldn't like his lying to Vi so much. His reasons weren't enough for me. :( Oh I do agree with you about the ending. Because it affected me so much, you know it did get under my skin. Oh I want another ending or another book! :)
