*This book was provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review*

I must begin by saying that I love the cover of Outliers. It's very eye-catching.

It took me a few chapters to fully understand what was going on, remember the character names, how they related with each other, etc. I did have to go back and re-read a few times, but with a story as intricately woven as Outliers, that's to be expected.

I enjoyed learning about Pan, Abran, The Revered Doctor, etc. Outliers is jam-packed w

Review by Shannon Vize for the Current
Regina Harvey, mother of Eckerd Junior Mikaela Roosa, published her first book, “Outliers,” last November. The book is a dystopian thriller following a team of outliers as they try to stop the powerful UNITEED from warping and controlling the minds of everyone left on Earth.

Fans of popular dystopian series like “The Hunger Games” or “Divergent” will love Harvey’s take on the genre and how she shapes it to make it her own. The story begins dramatically with P

"Outliers" took me on a rollercoaster ride and left me plenty breathless. It was just so... epic.

Okay, let's start from the beginning.
When I read the first few pages, my heart sank. Here's why:
probability that book is good declines with rising number of words made up by author © xkcd

There was talk about "Oper" (that's the German word for Opera btw), "squinting the Launch Quadrant", "Outlier Core" and some more neologisms I wouldn't find in any dictionary (they are listed in the appendix though, I realized when I was finished and had figured out most of them on my own...).

I really, REALLY, REALLY wanted to like this book! I received three books to write an honest review for and I was BY FAR the most excited about this one.

I liked the premise of the book a lot. I liked the overall story of the book. I liked Awan, Pan, Abran and Senon. I think the author has a lot she can do with these characters in the future.

Here is the honest part - if I had not agreed to give a review for this book I would have stopped readi

It's so hard for me to write a review when I didn't love a book. I have so much respect for authors and I always want to give the best rating possible. With that said, I didn't love this story. I had a hard time understanding what was even going on for about the first 30% of the book and I wasn't invested in the characters at all until about 60%. It got better after that, but not much. I started to like it a l

*Disclaimer: I was provided the book for free from the author for an honest review*

The idea of this book was one I liked and was interested in since I am a big fan of dystopian books. However, I am sad to say I had a difficult time getting through the book. My main issue was the language usage in the book, the characters used slang and abbreviations that felt jarring and I was never able to get used to. The plot was confusing at first, with not enough background to make me feel like I completely

I won this book from a giveaway on goodreads and had been extremely excited to read it. I began the book a few days ago and it took me forever to really get into the book. It was hard to understand what was going on because not much information was given. The plot was interesting and I enjoyed the characters, but it wasn't something that I thoroughly enjoyed. I really liked the author's ideas she had, but they could have been executed better.
