GENRE: dystopia, post-apochalyptic, young adult

PUBLISHER: Clean Reads

PLOT: See the GoodReads pitch.

COMMENTS: This was a real page-turner–I finished it in two sittings. You get love and adventure, in a setting similar to ENDER’S GAME meets DUNE. There are certain passages where the love story tugs on your heartstrings, particularly since it isn’t fulfilled until the very end. The two protagonists, Kaia and Ajax, are very young, but they make the same mistakes people twice their age repeat over an

Noble has taken some pretty interesting and classic ideas and infused them with some subjects studied in high school to create a full-out, action packed novel. The ideas that she has, and the self-sustained lifestyle she has created, is so intriguing to me. Although I feel like the world itself has gone a little far for my comfort, some of the ideas (like harvesting your own used energy) is such a crazy futuristic, yet realistic idea.

When I started reading this book I was captivated. I could not put it down until I reached the very end.

Valerie Noble's first book is very well written and to me is better than some of the bestsellers I have read in the dystopian category.

Ms.Noble gives you believable characters that work perfectly together to form the plot of this book. If you loved The Hunger Games and Divergent this book will not disappoint you. Lots of adventure, suspense and the main characters are falling in love. A page t

When I began reading this book I was unsure of how to feel about it. It seemed a little dystopian, but with a little romance (both right up my alley). However, there was something about the descriptions I read that didn’t seem to fit with the story. Despite the basic grammatical errors, some strange chapter choices, and perspective switches, I loved the originality and creativity put into this novel.

An astute and intelligent science fiction tale from the mind of one Valerie Noble. The Energy Crusades is a fully realized and relevant world where Energy is the only currency. Visitors from afar arrive to save the Earth but are they the saviors they appear to be? I became fully engrossed and invested in this thrilling tale from beginning to end.

Valerie reveals this world to us little by little. Each chapter we discover something new. I don't want to spoil all the technological advancements she'
