Rick Starkey5 Stars Out Of 5Vanquished, Enslaved Book 1February 28, 2015Rick StarkeyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Katie Clark gives us a glimpse into a future that could one day be our own. Though most measure today's dystopian novels against The Hunger Games or Divergent, Vanquished can stand on its own against either. Katie has asked the ultimate what if. What if God doesn't exist because we have never been allowed to learn about God or Jesus?
Life is good, but when Hana's mother becomes sick with the mutation, and whose medical allowance is depleted, where can Hana turn for help? She hears talk about a God, but is she willing to go against everything she has been raised to believe about her government and risk being sent to a lesser place filled with crime, hunger, and filth?
Hana's fight is about more than life or death. It's a fight for eternal life and her soul, and the souls of others who have not heard the Word. If it only takes a spark, this girl is catching fire.
More than a Good Read. Though set years in the fictitious future, Hana's time may be too close for comfort for us all. Vanquished is a book I couldn't stop reading. The only disappointment was turning a page and finding the blank page at the end. I wanted more.
GingerS2195 Stars Out Of 5Excellent storyOctober 30, 2014GingerS219Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading, as this is outside of my normal genre, but I loved it. It drew me in from the beginning, and as I type this I continue thinking about it. I loved the characters and the fact that life wasn't always easy for them. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
