(DISCLAIMER: This review is based on my opinion only.)
Gaia and her mum faithfully fulfil their monthly quota of delivering the first 3 babies of every month to the Enclave. But when Gaia’s parents are taken away by the people she faithfully serves, she starts to question her loyalty.
I did feel that the pacing was a little slow, but I really enjoyed and liked the concept of the story. I like the build up and the action and the way the dystopian world was set up and it made a really interesting premise.
I actually was interested in continuing the series, but the synopsis of the 2nd book did deter me a little before I gave it a go and ended up DNF-ing it. Because When Leon was introduced again, it angered me so much and by 1/2 of the second book, I felt that the potential that was built in the first book was lost. I was really bored and annoyed by all the guys in the 2nd book.
