Review: Renegade - A MUST READ!


WOW LIKE WOW I WAS BLOWN AWAY!!!!         Ok at first I didnt know about this one.  I found it repetitive VERY repetitive BUT then we find out why (cant tell its a spoiler)  But it was worth the read.  We find out that our herioin is the Daughter of the People and that us people who live on the surface (suface dwellers) are the bad guys or so it seems.  We also find out that Evies world (Elysium)  is UNDER the ocean.  |Which gave me the creeps!  I don't even like being in the tubes at Sea world let alone live there.| When Gavin Hunter (yes a surface dweller) finds himself in Evies garden she finds herself drawn to him.  Her world is ruled by a woman known as Mother whom is a nasty lady!  Evie comes to find out with the help of Gavin that she has been put through the process called Conditioning (which is what they use on the enforcers who are supposed to protect their world) (IE. Enforcers start out at age 3 which kinda made me cringe I am a mom) Her memories have been altered and she is having trouble dealing with them flooding back.  So knowing that her mother is not going to let Gavin live they attempt to escape..........................................................................................................................................Ok so this book is one of those that it makes a great stand alone but an even better series which it is! (happy girly dance) This is the first book in a new series called Elysium Chronicles.  The ending of this book is uncertain but great. (cant give you more without giving it away) I can't wait for the next one and hope that Tor is nice enough to approve me for the next one!  AND YOU KNOW WHAT............MY LIFE IS ALMOST PERFECT!  LOL READ THE BOOK AND YOU WILL GET IT!

J.A. Souders was born in the heartland with an overactive imagination and an over abundance of curiosity that was always getting her into trouble. She first began writing at the age of 13, when she moved to Florida and not only befriended the monsters under the bed, but created worlds for them to play together.

Because she never grew up, she decided she'd put her imaginary friends to work and started writing. She still lives in the land of sunshine and palm trees with her husband and their two children and is an active member of the RWA, CFRW, YARWA and SCBWI.

She is represented by Natalie Fischer Lakosil of the Bradford Literary Agency. Her debut book, RENEGADE, surfaces November 13, 2012 from Tor Teen (Macmillan).
Her short story TOOTHLESS is in the Mystery Times Ten anthology from Buddhapuss Ink.
