Loved, loved, loved these books! Can't wait for Aurora to come out, whenever that may be... Author's website just says "Coming Soon...".

Even as a 45 yr old (married w/ 2 teenage children) woman, I can still appreciate and remember the feelings that young love engender in me. The author is simply incredible in the way she is able to do this, yet she is also able to wrench your heart in the other direction by describing in visually electric detail the harsh and brutal conditions the characters must live through in order to survive.

I've read The Hunger Games, Divergent/Insurgent, The Uglies Series and almost all the other young adult dystopian books and I have to say these would probably be, if not my favourite, then at least at the very top. So engrossing you can't put the book down once you start. No joke.

Extremely good book, but I searched for the sequel (Zenith), asked for it at the reference desk, and they didn't have it. They sell it on online sites, but I'm wondering why the library doesn't have it. I'm sad because now I have to buy it haha

Good imagination but the book lack power. It didn't engage me to keep reading.

Overall good book. The beggining was a little slow but got better near the end.

Setting that was imaginative yet believable, and the story was a combination of adventurous and thought-provoking without being preachy or cliche'.
