How do you live with yourself when you’ve deceived the one you love?

How do you move on when the person you’ve been fighting to save betrays you?

Two years ago, Maggie Stevens began the hunt.

Four weeks ago, Maggie’s world fell apart, when she finally
found what she’d been looking for. And when Quentin,
who had blindly trusted her, unravelled her web of lies.

Now, Maggie lives i

I CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE MY EMOTIONS RIGHT NOW. I'm just a blob of FEELINGS, okay?! FEEEEEEEELINGS. I aboslutely love this freaking duology. It's has my most favourite OTP in the universe. It has characters I will cry for. I DO CRY FOR. I just...I cannot.

I picked it up feeling like this:

I am a mess right now. Honestly, I have no idea where to begin because Corruption has my mind reeling. But let's start off with this: I will read anything this woman writes. I've read pretty much every novel written by Jess Shirvington with the exception of Empower (the last book to the Violet Eden Chapters) and each book gets better than the next; I can see this author's writing skills getting better and better with each book. And this latest series

Bu kitabı okumaya çalışmak beni o kadar yordu ki, oturup düşüncelerimi düzgün bir şekilde anlatacak enerjim kalmadı diyebilirim. Oysa Parazit'i o kadar severek okumuştum ki geçen sene! Panzehir ise... #HayalKırıklığı . Sorun ne, doğrusu pek emin değilim. Ya Panzehir gerçekten de Parazit'in yanında sönük kalan bir devam/sonuç kitabı ya da ben geçtiğimiz bir yıl içerisinde çok daha iyi kitaplar okuduğumdan dolayı artık beni tatmin etmiyor. Oysa bu

You know how dystopians end up taking a utopian approach in the end? The government/technology/spies were evil and they've controlled us for too long. It's time we controlled them and threw them to the bottomless pits of Moria for the Balrog to feast on?

Not exactly realistic.

This dystopian knew better. Perhaps being set only nine years in the future contributed to the fact. But one way or another, this dystopian knew better. As to how it chose to leave things, well... spoilers. But if you can ge

About: Corruption is a fiction novel written by Jessica Shirvington. It will be published on 3/7/17 by HarperCollins, 435 pages. This duology composed of book 1 called Disruption and book 2 called Corruption. The genres are young adult, dystopia, science fiction, and romance. This book was originally published in 11/1/14 in Australia.

My Experience: I started reading Corruption on 2/10/17 and finished it on 2/15/17. This book is filled with so much actions and pleasures! I love this duology! This

Sadly, I didn't like Corruption as much as the first book in the duology, Disruption. Just as in the Divergent books, Disruption was more dystopian and more romance-y, whereas this one was more like ALL subsequent books in YA dystopian duologies and trilogies -- filled with rebels sneaking around on missions, something I'm not such a fan of.

While I liked the big twist in Disruption ((view spoiler)) I was un-awed by th

Parazit’i bitirdiğim andan itibaren Panzehir’i okumak için çıldırıyordum. Kitabı aldıktan sonra seriye veda etmemi geciktirmek için bir süre okumayı reddettim tabii, orası ayrı konu. Ama daha fazla erteleyemeyeceğimi kabul ederek başladım.
Yazarın dili inanılmaz akıcıydı ve aksiyonu fazlasıyla yerindeydi. Bir gün gibi bir sürede kitabı tükettim. Ama ben de TÜKENDİM. Olanları sindiremiyorum. Hiç hazırlıklı değildim. Evet her şey mükemmel ilerley

Never have I been so glad to be an audiobook listener than with this series. The first book only recently released in the US, but both books have been available on audio thanks to the Australian publisher for ages, so I immediately downloaded this sequel. Another plus, it's only a duology. And as I said, it's from the land down under, and I've never met a book from an Australian author that I didn't like. But this series? This series is phenomenal.

DUOLOGY REVIEW

I’ve been in a Aussie YA phase the past couple of weeks, so when I came across Disruption and Corruption by Jessica Shirvington, an Australian author, I didn’t hesitate to borrow them and dive right into them. These books aren’t my typical kinds of reads, but they were entertaining in every way and I had no trouble sinking myself into the story.

What made both Disruption and Corruption work well for me was all the character growth. In the beginning, particularly in the first book,

I'm going to tell you a story about a girl who lost her dad and had her world fall apart. And then I am going to tell you the story about the woman she became.


Corruption is an intense read and exhilarating conclusion to the duology, delivered with Jessica Shirvington's flair for creating stories that captivate readers from the first page to the very last. The last bo

The story picks up right where we left off, which I appreciated since I didn't really want to have to sit through a recap of what had happened in the first book. The pace was set, and it never slowed down. I won't say much about the plot, but let me assure you, it is just as fast-paced and filled with plot twists as the first book Disruption. It gripped me from the beginning and didn’t let me go until THAT DAMN ENDING. (more on that l

This review appears on Happy Indulgence. Check it out for more reviews!

The smashing conclusion to the hit sci-fi series where relationships with others are dictated by M-band technology was exhilarating and action-packed.

Corruption picks up exactly where Disruption left off, without a recap of events or people. It all comes back quickly though, with Maggie's kick ass attitude, her smarmy best friend Gus and the betrayed lover Quentin all making a quick comeback. These characters are all so vibr

This duology is bloody fantastic! So much action, excitement, laughs and tears, I can't even. I finished this book at 1am, tears and snot running down my face because JESSICA SHIRVINGTON IS EVIL, but so happy that my friend bought me Disruption otherwise I wouldn't have discovered it. I absolutely loved it.
This one felt a tad slower than the other one but I still enjoyed it because, well, the characters kick arse. If you've not read this series, GO NOW, go buy it. Then come back and talk to me

İkinci kitabı beğenmeyen çoğunun aksine ben beğendim. Bu kitapta Maggie'nin ne kadar kırılgan olabileceğini gördüğümüz gibi, Quentin'in de ne kadar sağlam durabileceğini okuduk bu hoşuma gitti. Ve anlamsız ayrılıklar yerine sağlam bir birleşme vardı. Maggie'yi çok sevdim. Hatalarını bilen, bencil ama bencil olmaktan kurtulmaya çalışan bir karakter olarak verdiği tüm kararları destekledim. Ve Quinny, sana ne diyeyim be çocuk harikasın. Dediğim gibi en sevdiğim çiftler arasına girdiniz. Sizi seviy ...more

A copy of this novel was provided by Harper Collins Australia for review.

I must say that I was a little disappointed in Corruption. I think because I loved Disruption SO MUCH, I was expecting something just as good, if not better from Corruption. I also might have forgotten the fact that my love for series generally decreases after the first book. This happens with every single series that I can name right now. And sadly, Disruption (the series) was no different.

Nevertheless, I’ll try and wade t

“Jesus Christ.’ Gus whistled, ‘It’s like a video game down here.’
‘Yeah, except the bullets are real,’ Quentin offered.”
“And you only get one life,’ Liam threw in."

I laughed, I cried, I had many heart attacks, and even some joyful moments. But most of all it was all bittersweet.

Disruption rocked my world, and I was on a hype after I read it. But I'm so glad to say Corruption out down itself. I salute you Ms Shirvington, you've wrapped up this world in an incredible way, and gave it justice it de

An absolutely brilliant conclusion to the story that began in Disruption, Corruption takes us deep into the heart of the sickness that is M-Corp and the technology they use to control and subdue American citizens and the world at large.

Last year Maggie Stevens cemented herself as one of my all-time favourite protagonists, and I'm happy to say my opinion of her has only risen while reading Corruption. I rarely read characters who are so in tune with the truth of who they are: usually protagonists

Jessica Shirvington is phenomenal. The Disruption Duology is simply the best Australian dystopian series I've ever had the privileged of reading. Told from the perspective of Maggie Stevens, sassy, self aware and a manipulator who knows how to get the job done. Her only weakness has always been her father, the man who was supposedly removed from his home by force, only for Maggie to discover the truth behind the man she has always idolised. The world is no

Objektif olmaya çalışıyorum, olamıyorum kardeşim ne yapayım? Hele söz konusu olan Jessica Shirvington kitaplarıysa, asla!

Kitaba başlamaya çok korkuyordum çünkü okuduğum yorumlar iç açıcı değildi. Okumaya başladığımda ise 'Hiç beğenmeyeceğim ya, uf' modundaydım. Beklentimi çok düşük tutmamdan mı yoksa olayların istediğim gibi ilerleyip aksiyonu bol bol olmasından mı kitaba bayıldım kestiremiyorum. Sanırım ikisinden de birazcık var.

This book is seriously amazing. You can connect with the characters really well and it was heartbreaking for me when two of the characters died. But I am really glad that there was a happy ending for the two main characters. They were literally made for each other.

I love duologies, and Jessica Shirvington has written one of my favourite duologies out there. Granted I haven't read/finished all that many...this series is still pretty high on the list.

Disruption pretty much left us readers on a cliffhanger as Maggie's ploy to find her dad failed and led to her capture by M-Corp. Corruption picks up immediately following Maggie's capture as we learn about her time held underground in one of the jail cells. As time passes, Maggie's psyche is pushed to t
