Benson Fisher escaped from Maxfield Academy's deadly rules and brutal gangs. The worst was over.
Or so he thought.
But now he's trapped on the other side of the wall, in a different kind of prison. A town filled with familiar faces. People from Maxfield who Benson had seen die. Friends he was afraid he had killed.
They are all pawns in the school's twisted experiment, held captive and controlled by an unseen force. And while Benson struggles to figure out who, if anyone, can be trusted, he discovers that Maxfield Academy's plans are darker than anything he imagined - and they may be impossible to stop.

I started listening to Feedback the same day I finished Variant, it was so good I just couldn't wait but Feedback was a little messy to follow and just not as interesting.
Trying to figure out who Maxfield is was the most interesting part.
This guy was perfect!
I just hope there's another book because this one left me wanting more.
I originally got Variant - probably on sale (I don't recall). It ended abruptly making me realize there must be a series. So, I bought Feedback to find out how it ends. And, based on how it ended, I'm just guessing that there will be additional books in the series forthcoming.
It was an enjoyable book that is clearly written for more of a teen audience. It captured my attention, made me think now and again, held my interest to the end.
Now, the end was a bit weird. It certainly didn't go to the place that I thought it would. You might call that a twist, but I'll go with more of a surprise. Others might see it coming - I don't typically do that - I just experience it and see where it takes me.
The reader was very good. Voices and dialogue are important in this book. He wasn't exceptional - but he was very believable and fluid.
My kids may give it a listen. I doubt that I'll go through it again - it wasn't that kind of compelling (but I have a REALLY high bar for that). But, it was fun.
Just don't expect it to challenge your adult mind. It wasn't written for that.
