Two years ago, Maggie Stevens began the hunt.

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:

And it quickly zoomed into this:

IT WAS FREAKING PERFECTION. I will cry happy, but I will also stomp my foot because it's only a duology and I could've read 294208 million books about these characters

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.

Shelves: dystopian
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

This, the sequel to Disruption, was better than the first one. The writing was slicker, although I think it was a little long in the middle, and there were some twists that I didn't see coming, whereas I picked up on them in the first one. All in all, it was an enjoyable sequel (and conclusion) and I was satisfied with both the resolution and the evolution of the characters. ...more

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. If I thought the first book was insane, I was n ...more

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,

Wow. What a rollercoaster of emotion.

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
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

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

“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

Five years later, and in my second read of this book/duology, I still adore these characters, and I still got sucker-punched right in the feels.



Secondly, this was fantastic and very well executed.

Thirdly, I am now going to run out and buy all of Jessica's other books. From what I experienced here, I have plenty to look forward to!

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 t

Oh my poor heart!

I'm glad this book was a duology; it definitely wouldn't have suited a trilogy, likely ending up with middle book syndrome. Shirvington really hit her groove with this one, losing most of the crummy info-dump-like dialogue. Instead it focused on the characters and all the issues brought u

There's not much time to breathe with this second and final instalment in Jessica Shirvington's futuristic action thriller. The action unfolds at break-neck pace as Maggie and Quentin (and Gus) take on M-Corp, while also sorting out their own issues.

Everything I enjoyed in the first book is ramped up here: the action, the pace, Maggie’s fearlessness and flaws. And, of course, there's plenty of Maggie/Quentin moments.

I'll confess, there's a moment near the end - a beautiful moment when Maggie rea

I just want to gush and gush and gush over them. Corruption was amazing. Tbh, I think Disruption was my fave of the two, but only by a tiny bit.

It was action-packed, full of feels, plus enough twists and turns to have me shouting "whaaaaaat?" And quite a few laugh out loud worthy quips.

Maggie is so freaking badass, but vulnerable, and I just love her so much. I know some people will hate how mushy and lovey Corruption is, but I'm such a sucker for t
