For those of you who've been saying Oh it's just another Hunger Games Big whoop you need to shut your mouths right now before the rest of your brain falls out This is not The Hunger Games Aside from the fact that it includes a televised event of children fighting each other in a dystopian universe which is not an idea uniue to The Hunger Games originally anyway these two books really don't have that much in commonOne of my personal favorite premises in this book is the fact that anyone who is caught committing a crime become a Belligerent and lives out the rest of his or her life a either a servant a labor worker an entertainer or a modern day gladiator Of course committing a crime isn't nearly the same thing as getting caught committing a crime but talk about a motivator to keep the public in line Do something illegal and you get a band strapped around your wrist that will inject a sedative into your bloodstream the moment you try to resistNot only does becoming a Belligerent mean that you practically forfeit all control over your own life but you have to give it to someone else You are now property of an Owner that has every power to make you do whatever they want That's where Ryan ends up after he tries to steal the car of a wealthy Owner who's determined to have his team win the Vicara games for reasons that are never fully clear to us All we know is that Shifter the man that's now calling the shots of his life saw something in Ryan that he needed and decided to take itI liked how you could see the different opinions people had of the Belligerents and how they changed with time When Ryan was younger he thought it would be the coolest thing ever to be able to compete in the Vicara Games but now all he wants to do is get out of them because he sees Belligerents for what they really are slaves Sure a few of them may gain the status of wealthy celebrities every year but up until that point their freedom is the very last thing they have control overShifter's team is probably the best thing about Belligerent Meeting them way by far my favorite part of the novel and they are always the easiest characters for me to identify They're all so uniue and obviously became Belligerents in different manners yet their differences are probably the very reason they work so well together They all need each other in some way and I love the family dynamic that BN Mauldin creates with themMy one criticism for this book lies with the ending Cliffhangers man Cliffhangers Belligerent is obviously supposed to be part of a series but what a place to end Do you think you could have left me with even to wonder aboutTaylorFor the original review and please visit Marked By Books

Work isn’t the most noble he’s known as one of the best despite his young ageRyan’s skills catch the eye of a flagrant Owner bent on winning the virtual competition Vicara Newly branded as a Belligerent Ryan struggles for freedom a. Even if I hadn’t seen the synopsis or saw the grungy but awesome cover I would have instantly known that this was dystopian There’s no explanation you’re just thrown into this world where if you’re punished you “GET” to join a Colosseum type of fighting and you may or may not get training I can’t imagine wanting to be a criminal but sometimes it’s either that or starve to death and that’s where we meet our main character RyanI really like Ryan although he has some trust issues But living in this type of world I’m pretty sure everyone does For a short book this was pretty intense BN Maudlin is able to introduce Ryan’s team mates but that doesn’t mean the drama stops uite the opposite And the drama gets and interesting as we get to know his group and the school that he attends Sadly we don’t see much of Shifter I am curious about that guy And we also lose touch with Alex I really liked herInto dystopian and need a short read Pick this one up It’s fast dramatic and is completely different from anything I’ve read Fabulous
