[Series:] Good action - too much cheesy romance

This review applies to the entire series. The action sequences are very well written and interesting, but certain things about the writing became very annoying and hard to tolerate after 4-5 books, and they detracted from the entire experience. Namely, the excessive amount of inner dialogue. This series easily could have fit into 3 or 4 action-packed books if not for the excessive explanations of how people feel and what they think. THE most annoying thing about the books (particularly the last few) is how often Violet or Vego seemingly re-discover or express how much they love each other. Some reviews have compared aspects of this story to a cheesy romance novel, and that is fair. It is cheesy romance intermixed with good action sequences. Also annoying was the author's overuse of terms such as chaste kiss and tisk. That is just bad writing. I stayed with these books to the end because I wanted to see how they turned out, but by the end I was simply ready for it to be over and did not really care what happened to Violet or Vego. This story is not the Hunger Games, and Violet is no Katniss.

What a wonderful ending!!!

The narrators of this book once again did fantastic job and I was so glad they continued to read this book. The ending book was well thought out and very enjoyable to listen to. All around great series.

Honestly, I hoped for something more...

Well, this book was definitely on a lower level in my expectations. I didn't like it, I'm sorry. This was packed up with wedding cerimonies, some confused action, and wedding ceremonies again. I felt like reading and listening to a traditional fantasy world with some gross genetically modified creatures... and there was no closure in the end. I expected more and maybe something completely different. And I want to mention the real bad sound in most of the Rebecca Soler performance, I'm sorry.

Loved the whole series.

It was amazing. At first the series started off slow, but once it got going I couldn't wait to hear what was next.

Left me wanting

The author uses the same phrases repeatedly and for more than one character. Example: “ I let out my breath that I hadn’t even realized I had been holding”
She has multiple characters (Tim, Veego, and Violet) all thinking the same way, as if their personalities were identical. Veego is a Patron male and Tim has been held captive and traumatized in isolation for 8 years. Yet the author has these 2 men being as insightful and as sensitive as women are. She did not change their personalities to reflecy their different genders and experiences.
If you were expecting the writing to be as good as the Hunger Games has been written, you will be disappointed. Her writing is probably good enough for young teenagers, but sorely lacking for the adult reader.

Gender End

This last book was good but I was a little disappointed of how it ends. Although I listened to the the 1st 3 chapters of the next series The girl who dared to think, sorta same plot lines, different environment. I purchased and will listen but not sure if I will continue with the series.
The Gender Game had me sitting at the edge of my seat a few times but Violet became annoying.

Good story with tolerable cliches

I found the story interesting enough to listen to the entire series. Violet’s cliches and overly dramatic reactions got annoying. I mean how many times can she want something with every fiber of her being or experience pain worse than ever before in her entire life? The plot keeps you following along and playing the book on 1.25 speed helps.

Thoroughly enjoyable series

I previously listened to The Girl Who Dared to Think series by the same author, although I did enjoy that series, there were aspects I found annoying. In the Girl Who Dared to Think every book in the series had repetitive recaps of aspects of the books that had previously been read as if we had dementia, the individual books also felt more like chapters rather than books on there own making the $15 a pop feel all the more expensive. Thankfully none of this occurs in The Gender Game books, it was captivating from the very beginning till the very end without unnecessary recaps to act as filler. I thoroughly enjoyed this series and I highly recommended it to others.
