    Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate... until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.

    Overall

    I love this type of literature. Dystopia!!! If you are a fan of Lois Lowry's "The Giver" you will most definitely enjoy this. While it is from a teenage girls perspective, and romance is certainly not overlooked, the story is well written and leaves you wanting more! The sequel due in November of 2011!!

    Thomas knows that Wicked can't be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. It's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test. What Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they think. And he knows that he can't believe a word of what Wicked says. The time for lies is over.

    Story

    The Maze Runner trilogy is among my favorites. This book is an excellent conclusion. Mark Deakins really makes the story. I have friends who have read the books, but I chose to listen to them because Mark brings every character to life. I have never heard a narration done so well. He flawlessly flows from character to character, each with their distinct voice that is consistent throughout the series.

    In America's Gulf Coast region, where grounded oil tankers are being broken down for parts, Nailer, a teenage boy, works the light crew, scavenging for copper wiring just to make quota - and hopefully live to see another day. But when, by luck or chance, he discovers an exquisite clipper ship beached during a recent hurricane, Nailer faces the most important decision of his life: Strip the ship for all it's worth or rescue its lone survivor, a beautiful and wealthy girl who could lead him to a better life.

    Overall

    I bought this one through the paperback sale, and I am glad I did. This is a dystopian novel, set in what seems to be New Orleans post a massive hurricane that has left it beyond repair or rather people no longer wanted to restore a place that would just be storm ridden again in the future, a lost cause. The only inhabitants live off of scavenging ships that have been left behind after the "city-killer" storms. The author reminds me of James Dashner, if you enjoyed Maze Runner, you will enjoy this!

    In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary's truths are failing her. She's learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness.

    Overall

    This book was really great. There is nothing wrong with the narration. I read the reviews before purchasing and almost decided against it because of all the poor reviews for Vane Million the narrator. However I think she did a beautiful job, and I would really have missed out. I am so glad I purchased. I am also a fan of Hunger Games, Maze Runner, The Giver, and so many other YA dystopia/post apocalyptic literature.
