Book Thoughts by Rachelle
I really enjoyed this read. Elana Johnson has some super cool tech inventions in her book which rides the line of science fiction IMO. In Surrender we meet Raine and Gunner and get to learn their part in the resistance against the total mind-numbing control of the government.
I have to say that I liked Surrender better than Possession–that may be in part because I understood the world Johnson had created, but I think it’s mostly because the main characters were easier to identify with. Also, Johnson’s writing is tight, edgy, and full of style. Her characters have voice that you can’t ignore and that isn’t just because Gunn has Voice skilz. 🙂
Here’s more about the book:
The thrilling and seductive sequel to Possession puts love on the line in a dystopian struggle for independent thought.
Forbidden love, intoxicating power, and the terror of control…
Raine has always been a good girl. She lives by the rules in Freedom. After all, they are her father’s rules: He’s the Director. It’s because of him that Raine is willing to use her talent—a power so dangerous, no one else is allowed to know about it. Not even her roommate, Vi.
All of that changes when Raine falls for Gunner. Raine’s got every reason in the world to stay away from Gunn, but she just can’t. Especially when she discovers his connection to Vi’s boyfriend, Zenn.
Raine has never known anyone as heavily brainwashed as Vi. Raine’s father expects her to spy on Vi and report back to him. But Raine is beginning to wonder what Vi knows that her father is so anxious to keep hidden, and what might happen if she helps Vi remember it. She’s even starting to suspect Vi’s secrets might involve Freedom’s newest prisoner, the rebel Jag Barque….
