Thank you to NetGalley, Sabrina RG Raven, and BooksGoSocial for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

Book description from Goodreads: “Confined to Oasis after the war people are genetically matched via matching birth marks. City Ordinance makes sure mutagen free status is maintained. But in a world of marked people, what happens when you’re blank?”

The premise of this novel sounds so very interesting, right? Well, sort of. The pacing of this book was a bit odd. You h

Blank by Sabrina R.G. Raven is a Teens and Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy book. I gave it five stars because it captured my attention from the first paragraph. People are matched genetically via birthmarks.

"Everyone in the world is born with a tattoo that matches their soul mates. We couple for life. I have no idea, even now, how it all works, how that soul mate is always close enough to be found, but I am blank. That is why my parents wept."

"My sister was born when I was three. She had

This book was a bit difficult to read if I'm being honest. I felt at time it was rushed in certain areas. Definitely could have dragged it out more. The whole concept of the storie was really interesting and has got me wondering where the story will go. ...more

I was really excited to have the opportunity to read this book after reading the description, however, I am a bit torn on how I feel about it.

First off, I will list what I did like about the book. I liked Almara and Darnell's character. They seemed to lack depth to me but they were pleasant enough. Though, if I'm being honest, I preferred the secondary characters like Coo, Jaylon, Amma, and Ahn to any of the main characters. They just seemed to have more substance to them than the main characte

I am a huge fan of young adult novels. I feel that they sometimes tackle tough subjects in a less encumbered way.

Blank is one such novel. The topic is what some could call a drive towards genetic 'purity' with residents of Oasis being matched for compatibility by their birthmarks. Yet, some children are born blank and ultimately taken from society. Along with the need to be marked, the society also frowns upon anyone who deviates from their genetic match.

This novel follows the path of a few dif

An intriguing blend of Divergent meets Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and a sprinkle of Bionic Woman. A bit rushed at times, but overall an interesting read.

In a world of marked people, life is unfair to those who are unmarked known as blank. Those who are marked are genetically modified to find the perfect match, their birthmark partner. The story follows three different main characters with different backgrounds and circumstances. In this world blank people are arrested and secure in the Cube, the organization responsible for studying them and do others less ethic procedures.
We get to know through the book the dark side of that perfect lifestyle.

Ebook provided by NetGalley for review. Thank you.

This started out as a 5, then I thought a 4 and by the end it had dropped to a 3. The ending was disappointingly open and apparently with no plans for a sequel.

The characters were a mixed bag, I liked Darnell and loved Zale but Almara was flat and under-developed, she had very little growth compared to the others. The world-building was rich and interesting and perfectly set-up for scope to expand into a series. I loved the authors take on the so

I really enjoyed this book. I'm not sure why it is described as a YA novel as there is a lot of violence, swearing and it is quite harrowing in parts in terms of deaths.

I thought it was really well written and I enjoyed the different voices and narration.

the ending was slightly disappointing but I guess it is a set up for the next book if this were to be a series.

I would recommend this book and found myself wanting to talk to others about it - which to me is a sign of a good book!

Thankyou to NetGalley, BooksGoSocial and the author, Sabrina RG Raven, for the opportunity to read a copy of Blank in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion.

I was drawn to this novel from the premise of the storyline. On the whole, I thought the actual story delivered a good, quick read. It was well written and kept me intrigued.

Well worth a read.
