Thank goodness that's over. I can't believe I read 7 of these books... There's enough plot for maximum of 3 books, all the battles are the same, and Violet and Viggo's voices are too similar - does she not have an editor??

Firstly - a book that is predicated on gender, and not a single LGBT+ character? It was such a perfect set up for an interesting trans story, or a gay character (at one point I thought Owen's "you're not my type" comment to Violet could have gone somewhere interesting) but no,
Spoilers for the last few books and mild spoilers for this one.

3.5 star rating, maybe 3.75.

I started reading the Gender Game series at the beginning of the year and loved them from the first page. I absolutely loved the first four books. They had a great storyline and the characters were wonderful. When one book was finished I couldn't wait to dive into the next. Now, while I did enjoy the last three books, I can definitely say they weren't what I was expecting and I was a bit disappointed.

I absolutely loved this series... and all the characters... and all the heartfelt love... and maybe I even loved the hate because it's what brought all the spice into the story, y'know, the spice. (The 'spice' is supposed to be italicized, but Goodreads doesn't let me do that, it's supposed to emphasize the word, y'know?) Anyways, y'all should read the series, 'cuz it's pretty cool, y'know. Yeah. Bu

Well, this was an entirely unfulfilling experience. On the plus side, I'm finally done with this hell dimension of a series. On the minus side, I spent two weeks trying to read this stupid book and got nothing out of it. This entire series was a rushed, stretched out, virtually unedited dumpster fire. Christ, this sucked.

The worldbuilding somehow got progressively worse. There's just a whole lot of genetically modified creatures now. That's a thing, I guess. The societies make less sense. The te

Fall of Queen Elena - 4.5 stars....

The Gender End is the seventh and final book in The Gender Game series. I've been following the series since book one so I've been waiting for this finale for a while and was glad to finally get some closure.

Violet and Viggo along with their group of Matrus and Patrus refugees, head to Matrus to make a stand against Queen Elena to take her down once and for all. Going up against a psycho Queen though, means the fight was not without many struggles and sacrifice

Oh man. This is the end. The end of one of the most interesting series I have read in a long time. I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least. On my blog, I will do a Gender Game series review. But for now, this will be a review about just The Gender End.

I struggled to rate this book. I really did. I went back and forth between 3 (three) and 4 (four) stars. I felt it didn't deserve three stars but I wasn't sure if it deserved four stars either. I loved parts of it. Like (view spoiler)

I do feel the authors writing has came a long way but that can't Shadow the fact this series went on far too long. Even with all these books in the series, some things felt rushed like the romance and the character development. ...more

Seriously....awesome series!! I felt like some of it could've been dwindled down to make fewer books but I realize that without all the extra, it wouldn't have been good world or character building. This is a first for me for this author and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved this. Definitely check this series out!! ...more

I finally finished this freaking series! It took me forever, mostly because I only half wanted to finish it. The other half of me wanted to give up on it because it was TOO. DAMN. LONG. Seriously, this series could have been whittled down to about three books' worth of content. There was so much back and forth, twists and turns, and random developments that it made me wonder if the author really knew what she wanted to do with it, or if she just thought she'd throw in every last idea she could t ...more

Entire series read before review. 3 1/2 stars This series was a fun distraction but way to unrealistic. Basically there are two sides the male and female. Gender relations bad and several groups fighting throughout books.
The author has a firm grasp on fighting scenes but love/relationship scenes are forced. Characters are well done. But these characters get the crap beat out of them, including one with a fractured skull but are out fighting almost immediately, even though they are supposed to s

It's time for me to say goodbye to Violet and Viggio. I enjoyed this entire series. Throughout the series I experienced a love-hate relationship with Violet mainly and sometimes Viggio but overall it's hard to not root for the main characters. The gender game series will always be one of my favorites. ...more

4 stars!! The series is awesome! Full of twists and turns! It's just...not there yet. The writing is average, nothing too special. The plot is pretty similar to "Divergent", and although there are lots of intriguing details, the series is just a bit too longg. Okk the romance...Viggo and Violet are AMAZING!! They understand each other, go through soo many things together, and their respect for each other is just soo admirable.The characters in the books are not perfect, they make mistakes. But t ...more

3.75 stars- I am happy that despite not really enjoying book 1, the cliffhanger made me read on to book 2... and now I have completed book 7. This series was filled with an unbelievable amount of twists and turns, and although they were sometimes hard to keep up with, they made me want to keep reading. Also the character development was amazing in this series. My top 3 characters were probably Ms. Dale, Jeff and Thomas.

The emotions of this story is one of many things that has drawn me into it. Vego and Villots story....the trials they had to come across to not only be togeather...but to live. To unit people and a world fallen apart far in the future from our own.

The plot was amazing, the twists aganizing to picture. But along the tears I shed I laughed as well.

All the way around (the whole story) mind blowing and consuming.

I have definitely added Bella Forrest to the list of authors I admire and love. And p

This is a good series. For the last two books, I was starting to feel like it was dragging on too long. But now that I'm finished, I miss it. I remember rolling my eyes at the beginning of the series about the overly simplistic notions of gender ("Matrus" and "Patrus"??). I certainly wouldn't come to this series expecting thought-provoking philosophical epiphanies. You'll be disappointed if you do. But it's action packed. There's never a dull moment. And it teaches young readers good values with ...more

This whole series was great. As good as it was, I feel like 7 books is too much. I feel like the story could be accurately told in maybe 5 books. It was still a great series though and I am sad to see it end.

You know when you are so involved in a good book you grow so attached to characters as if they were actually your friends. That's how I felt with these characters. Going into a war you know you're going to lose some people and you're dreading it but it needs to happen because not everyone c

This was a wonderful ending to such an engaging series. I love the characters and I hate when some of them are killed off. I loved that this book brought together all the my favorite couples. I enjoyed reading about them falling in love. I don't miss King Maxen, Queen Elena or Desmond. I am curious out the people in the Outlands. There is a story there that really wasn't told. I am looking forward to reading other series by this author.

I was really disappointed with the ending of this series, the last two books were so monotonous and boring I could literally guess the characters next moves. Sorry not sorry. The beginning of the series was great, really intriguing and I couldn’t put the book down, I really wished the ending would be just as enthralling...☹️

Finally the end.

Ok I have to admit, some of this book was really an enjoyable adventure. Unfortunately, some of it was boring as heck.
I am sad that they didn’t fully explore their world in this book. I wish the author had continued on this track.
All wrapped up in a neat bow endings always disappoint me.

This was a thrilling end to the series full of action heartbreak and justice. It became very tense at points but others were heartfelt moments of family reunions. It also included links to the sequel series which I had already read which was a good build up and had a well rounded ending where most of the characters had completed their story arcs and the countries were at peace and united and the infrastructure was being rebuilt.

“As you all know, love is… complicated for me. It is something that adheres to no scientific or mathematic principles—it cannot be measured, weighed, or calculated. As such, it’s hard to credit that it even exists. I was certain we could find life in the stars before we could find scientific evidence that love was real.” 2 likes
