A hot debut trilogy and a riveting story of survival, courage, and romance in a future where creating a master civilization is the only thing prized, no matter the method. After the Omega (the end of the end), 16 year old guys known as LTs discover their overseers are raising them not to be soldiers (lieutenants) as promised, but to be sold as bait because of their Less Than status and hunted for sport. They escape and join forces with a girls' camp, the Sisters, who have been imprisoned and experimented on for the "good of the Republic," by a government eager to use twins in their dark research. In their plight for freedom, these heroes must find the best in themselves to fight against the worst in their enemies.
This book! Oh, man, it was so great! I enjoyed reading about Book and Hope, they were such fantastic characters! As well as Cat, as well as the other Less Than's and Sisters! Their journey to escape the bad guys!
It was pretty cruel to raise these boys to think they'll be lieutenants, when in fact they'll be hunted for sport. Add to the fact that they're Less Than's because they don't conform to what the ideal human body shape, or their parents were deemed terrorists, well, it's a horrible, sucky situation!
What the government did for the "good the Republic" was just pure evil. That they would test situations against twins basically because they could, just horrible! This is not a world that I would not want to live in!
Loved their journey as they escaped, and outwitted the bad guys. That despite the bad guys having the numbers and the weaponry, the kids beat them out, and found safety. And then Book turns around to go back to rescue the others left in the camps. Yeah.
Loved this book, and I can't wait to read The Capture! I need to know what's going to happen next!
