Firstlife

Thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin Teen for the arc of Firstlife by Gena Showalter!  The story begins in a detention center, somewhat like a prison, for obstinate people who are unwilling to choose sides – Myriad or Troika. The world building is somewhat confusing and the dialogue, through letters, is difficult to follow. I think the difficulty is due to the arc and I am assuming these problems will be taken care of before publishing. Religious fanatics who go to tremendous lengths to make their children decide on either Troika or Myriad, including torture (even cutting out the tongue isn’t beyond what they will allow), are in charge of this world. The more I read, the more I enjoyed the book. Also, the book cover is beautiful and creative. Gena Showalter is a great author and this series has potential!  I am definitely planning on reading book #2!
