REPEAT !

I like the story but the author is repeating herself a lot.
Liana says a lot of words but nothing new, the story is getting a smidge redundant, because it is starting to repeat itself too much and she is getting a little too wordy. I don't know if I can make it through the next book if it's anything like this one. Did I say she repeats herself? Exactly!

Cliffhangers are poor writing technique.

It is a super weak way to get people to buy the next book by dropping off in the middle of the climax. This book was barely a full act in a story and then the author drops it mid action? You got five books worth of credits out of me when I maybe should have spent three. I won’t be spending any more. I’ll read the synopsis somewhere. To find out what happens. I’m done with this series.

Drawn out storyline

I really enjoy this series, but it is taking to long to get to the meat of the action and I often find myself wanting to skip ahead sometimes. I like this series, but it is a little predictable. I LOVED the Gender Games and have also enjoyed this one, minus all the sidebar conversations

Should be "girl who dared to think too much"

I couldn't finish this series, loved the gender game series by Bella Forrest so I thought i'd give this a try. Her editor was asleep on the job, this series could have been maybe two books. There is so much filler in here, for instance it takes a whole page to describe her opening a door seems like. Her inner thoughts are described in painful detail.

Waste of a credit

This was such a disappointing book. In fact I wouldn’t call it a book, it was an unfinished book. A cliffhanger ending is one thing, but this cut off abruptly right in the middle of the point of the book. The series started strong and went downhill from there. Now it’s just the main character having pointless inner dialogue. Many lines are becoming very repetitive. What a waste.

I’m really trying...

I’m actually in the middle of the sixth book now and I’m considering just stopping the series.

The main character is really starting to annoy me as she tends to make a big issue out of EVERYTHING! I’m wondering if this is a way to force continuous conflict within the story. It’s really not needed because it almost becomes hard to keep up with all of the issues she is dealing with. It would be nice to consolidate the storyline and focus on developing the character of the main antagonist. At this point I’m not even sure who that is.

What is really becoming intolerable to me is the extensive and excessive inner dialogue. Here is the general structure of the books:
1) Liana has one line of dialogue with another character. That character responds
2) Liana thinks for two pages about what her feelings are and what she wants to say to the person
3) Liana summarizes everything she just thought into a line of dialogue
And repeat.
Clearly if she could summarize her thoughts and feelings into one line of dialogue, there was no need to write down her extensive and repetitive thought process. This does not develop her character. It just draws out the story in the most annoying way.

Lastly, I get that the group voted to have Liana as a leader. However, these are adults, albeit young adults. She carries on as if she is queen and has absolute power. It’s not believable that, given the strong personalities that surround her, they would blindly follow her instructions. For example, stopping an argument between significant others because it poses a “threat” to group unity is a bit much.

It’s unfortunate that I have given six credits to this series. I’m just not able to tolerate the storyline anymore and will read a summary elsewhere (which can probably be summed up in two pages). I have heard that The Gender Game is a great novel, but I’m reluctant to listen to more from this author.

no one likes cliffhangers

4 out of 5 for story because I find it tacky and rude when someone leaves their fans on a cliffhanger.... we made it 5 books and still buying books the least you could do is button up the story a little better between books..

Ending is completely disrespectful to readers.

I understand a few loose ends, and they are a part of really good writing. But... To avoid spoilers with any content.... To end a book dead smack in the MIDDLE of a scene is unconscionable. Movies get away with it, books do NOT. The series is very good. I am enjoying it, but this honestly just makes me angry. It is just plain poor storytelling to end at a climax without finishing the storyline.

Left me on the edge of my seat.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, but they should start at the beginning of this series would be helpful. It would introduce Liana and who she is to the reader.

What did you like best about this story?

It finally brings everything together, the characters, the problem and a solution, however don’t expect to find out what happens. That should be found out in the next book or maybe two.

What about Kirsten Leigh’s performance did you like?

Her ability to make ALL the characters come to life.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Bree’s brother leaving after he drops to a one and his anguish over losing his ranking.

Any additional comments?

I hope the next book will end this problem with the tower and lead to a book with all the characters from the Forrest and Tower coming together.
