True Rating: 2.5 Stars.

These books are decent entertainment. They don't hold a lot of substance and they don't offer a whole lot of depth. There's very little character development with the co-characters, but it's still intriguing. I like that they are short books. It makes it a very light read, and there's plenty going on to keep you turning pages. Sure doesn't hold a candle to the Hunger Games. The biggest downfall with these books is that the plot and subplots are so vague. Jace does this on

2nd installment of the "I Am Alive" series. My biggest complaint is that this is not one whole book, I'm not a fan of waiting for the next short story let Alone the next book. Never the less this installment picks up right where the first left off building more on the characters.

This is a very unique dystopian YA series and don't let the beginning of the story fool you into thinking it is a copy of The Hunger Games.

What may at first glimpse seem like one dimensional storytelling has many layers to it, and I appreciated being rewarded with some of my theories that the story was far deeper than it appeared when I got to the ending author notes of "episode 3". Another great series b ...more

3.5 stars. Not as good as the first one, too much time sitting around with a history lesson of how/why things are the way they are now, but other than that, quite enjoyable. Crazy fast action (mostly) and likable characters.
