The premise and execution are decidedly aimed at a much younger demographic but this story grabbed my attention and kept me listening through both books with rapt anticipation. Ruthless and rather horrific it still seemed quite necessary in the war that has to come to wrest the world away from the unscrupulous powers that be.
The seed purveyors that plague the honest farmers are typical of the misuse of the power of patents and a certain amount of violence will be required to overthrow their power. It's but a small part of the story but it kept things in perspective. The uniting of young people in a game type environment to change a corrupt world is a marvelous idea well executed even if the devices used are murderous. In the end it takes an evil to overcome institutionalized evil and then that evil is stripped of power by the people. Wonderful.
