    Getting weakerOnly George RR Martin should do a series ofthan three books This could have been wrapped up by now I don t think the pov s in this story really work the voices of the two characters are too similar, so it just makes the storyawkward, especially since their two societies seem so similar that there s no interesting reactions to each society

    Ugh This series is a nail biter It gets better and better Every book is excellent There was constant action and drama that kept me on the edge of my seat and Virgo and Violet s romance isn t cheesy and it doesn t overwhelm the story, This writer just has a way of pulling you in and keeping you interested but i will be putting this series to the side for a bit so i don t to tired of it.

    If you haven t read the first three books, it would be best to not read this review, as things might get spoiled Don t say I didn t warn you 4.5 stars tw death, bombings, derogatory comments towards women often challenged but not always This series just keeps getting better and better, even though I rated this particular book lower then the first 3 three In 2016, I was a little liberal with my 5 five stars I just gave them out all willy nilly Well not any This book was great buIf you haven t read the first three books, it would be best to not read this review, as things might get spoiled Don t say I didn t warn you 4.5 stars tw death, bombings, derogatory comments towards women often challenged but not always This series just keeps getting better and better, even though I rated this particular book lower then the first 3 three In 2016, I was a little liberal with my 5 five stars I just gave them out all willy nilly Well not any This book was great but it didn t warrant 5 five stars It wasn t anything in particular that made the rating lower, I just felt that since this was called The Gender War, that there would be a littlewar This wasabout the resistance and the beginnings of potential war In this book, we have 2 two first person POVs, Violet and Viggo They are trying to prevent a war between Matrus and Patrus, all while basically just trying to survive and figure out their relationship I know that is vague but giving away any will spoil the book I loved Viggo s POV I always thought he was bit too alpha male but during his POV, I discovered he was just afraid and covered that by being over the top alpha Luckily, Violet puts him in his place several times when he acts like that One of the things I enjoyed immesnly about this book is the development of Viggo s and Violet s relationship Viggo had never thought he could love so deeply again after losing his wife It was beautiful to see him care so much for Violet and it was amazing to see Violet accept that love She slowly started to realize she is worthy of love by Viggo and her friends No longer is she the closed off violent ice queen but a loving sister, girlfriend and leader of the revolution This book also brought up a great point about war How necessary is itIn the resistance group, Violet and Viggo are trying to stop a war but there are some members that believe the war should happen This definitely makes you think about war and the cost of it This book also brought up another excellent point Violet discovers that her home country of Matrus isn t as great as she thought Well, it wasn t all that great but she still held pride in being a Matrius woman She often had to deal with the fact that her countrywomen wanting her dead That is a rough thing to deal with I experienced that the day my country decided that a gross old man with no political history, who is also a racist and sexist, was the best person to be President It suck knowing that and trying to come to terms with it Overall, this is such a great series Violet and Viggo are amazing in every way and I ship them so hard I can t wait to continue with this series as soon as I go home where I conveniently left the rest of them If you enjoy the Hunger Games, this is the book series for you

    After being sorely disappointed by the third book in this series, I tempered my expectations for the next installment I still found myself a bit disappointed by the end.Book 3 ended with an unexpected twist Unfortunately, the big reveal didn t really impact anything Desmond and her allegiances don t play a role in The Gender War at all Instead, we follow Violet and Viggo and their fellow liberators as they try to prevent a war between the two nations Unfortunately, I just don t care what ha After being sorely disappointed by the third book in this series, I tempered my expectations for the next installment I still found myself a bit disappointed by the end.Book 3 ended with an unexpected twist Unfortunately, the big reveal didn t really impact anything Desmond and her allegiances don t play a role in The Gender War at all Instead, we follow Violet and Viggo and their fellow liberators as they try to prevent a war between the two nations Unfortunately, I just don t care what happens to either nation, so I had a hard time sticking with this book.A lot of my complaints on the previous book continue into this one There s no real main story arc in the novel There s very little lead up to the ending action scene climax Instead, the book reads as a series of events which Violet and Viggo stumble through before they re dragged into yet another epic battle.I thought the premise of the first book, The Gender Game, was a little silly, but still enjoyable I loved the next book which really developed the relationship between Violet and Viggo I feel like books three and four have lost the spirit which originally attracted me, and I m just not attached enough to the lead characters to see what happens next I m going to have to wish Violet and Viggo the best in their future endeavors and say farewell

Entertaining Stars Oh my Oh my Oh my I love, love, love this series I ve been a diehard Bella Forrest fan for several years and have read and reread every single release in her international bestselling A Shade of Vampire Series When I learned Forrest was debuting a new series, one vastly dissimilar to anything she has published to date, I immediately raced toto preorder my copy I could hardly wait to get it in my hot little hands and Forrest did not disappoint She not only met all my expectations, she surpassed them After reading the first book of the series, The Gender Game, I thought I had a fairly good grasp of the series but once again Forrest did what she does best she upped the ante, kicked up the heat, surprised me with a completed unexpected curve ball, and totally blew me away AGAIN I m addicted to romance, adore fantasy, completely smitten with action adventure and obsessed with mystery, intrigue, and suspense, but give me the perfect combination of these elements in one great read and I m in heaven And that s exactly what Forrest has delivered in The Gender Game Series Forrest is a truly gifted storyteller and has once again demonstrated her incredible talent, exceptional skill and unparalleled imagination with the creation of a vividly depicted and beautifully detailed world, populated with complex, well developed characters and masterfully layered with mystery, suspense, and unexpected plot twists If asked to describe this book in one sentence, I would simply say, imagine the melding of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner into one extraordinary story and you would have The Gender Game But make no mistake, the obstacles, adversity, and misfortune suffered by the characters in this story is no game as the title implies It s a life and death struggle for not only their very existence but also for the fate of the nations of Matrus and Patrus, two societies divided by muchthan a toxic river and a tragic history The narrative was beautifully written with a first person perspective primarily from the female protagonist, Violet Bates of Matrus In Book Two, Forrest expands the points of view to include a perspective from the male protagonist, Viggo Croft along with an additional brief insight from the newly crowned Queen Elena of Matrus In Book Three, the perspectives revert back solely to Violet and Viggo This is one of my favorite aspects of Forest s style of writing I love knowing the motivations of all the different characters in a book It helps me to connect with them and the story The dialogue is smart, natural, well executed and flows effortlessly But without a doubt, my favorite component is the cast of intriguing and engaging characters They are captivating, realistic and relatable, literally exploding from the pages to capture my imagination as well as my heart I fell in love with the heroine, nineteen year old Violet Bates, who has been branded by the Matrus legal system as a dangerous criminal In reality, Violet is simply a victim of her own fate, forced into an untenable existence and desperately trying to survive despite the tragic circumstances of her life I was in awe of Violet s strength, tenacity, and sheer will to live But despite the adversity, she remains innocent and naive in matters of the heart and the opposite sex The fact that she has never known any men other than her younger brother combined with the tragic events of her life has caused Violet to harden her heart, not only to men but to everyone and as a result has become uncharacteristically jaded for someone her age It quickly becomes apparent that Violet is an incredibly complex character with multiple layers of emotion and feelings she discovers and explores for the very first time throughout the story Violet is a remarkable young woman and truly a worthy heroine This story came to life for me I felt as if I were there with Violet through every step of her perilous journey I cried for her, sympathized and empathized with her my heart even broke for her I desperately wanted to wrap her in my arms and console her I have such high hopes for Violet, wanting so badly for her to find happiness I can hardly wait to continue the heart wrenching coming of age adventure with this brave young heroine in the next book of the series.In the premise for this story, the two neighboring sovereign states of Matrus and Patrus are the only remaining survivors of the once great country of America whose land was devastated and population very nearly destroyed during The Last War centuries earlier Originally they were one group, but as the result of political discord between genders, the two factions became divided into two very different nations, Matrus with a matriarchal government ruled by a queen, and Patrus with opposing patriarchal beliefs and governed by a king The female party was convinced the political viewpoints of men combined with their aggressive behavior were directly responsible for the war, blaming them for the annihilation of the once great America They believed women should be allowed to govern society using a peaceful doctrine as the basis for their new civilization with the national motto of Freedom In Peace The men refused to address or even acknowledge the concerns of the female party giving the women only two options remain and keep silentor leave to form their own society Quite obviously they chose the latter Thus, the two opposing nations of Matrus and Patrus were born Both now attempt to exist on a small strip of territory located in Appalachia separated by the toxic Veil River but with very little interaction between the two As you can imagine, there s extreme prejudice and gender discrimination against the few males residing in Matrus and in turn, the same holds true for females in Patrus Men have no rights in Matrus, but neither do women living in Patrus A woman cannot live in Patrus unless she is owned by a male citizen, and must have a male guardian with her at all times I found the concept and premise for this story to be new, unique, original, fresh, imaginative, exciting, fascinating, and actually quite realistic With the current political climate in our country, I can truly envision this happening in our society today.The Gender Game Book OneViolet Bates has never had an easy life and, consequently, has found herself always battling her anger Growing up as an orphan, she was constantly taunted by others and called Violent instead of Violet At only nineteen, she has already been marked as a criminal in Matrus Sadly, she lived the majority of her life in orphanages after her mother died giving birth to her brother Timothy when she was only three At eleven, she was caught trying to help her then eight year old brother, Tim, escape to Patrus, and charged with obstruction of justice Then at fourteen, she was convicted of woman slaughter when she tried to defend herself against a young woman who was accidentally killed by a fork during the struggle She was sentenced to seven years of confinement along with hard labor and bounced from one horrible detention center to another Now at nineteen, with only two years remaining before she can claim her freedom and reenter Matrian society, another tragic turn of events results in Violet having to once again defend herself, and in doing so, another young woman has been accidentally killed This would be her third and final conviction, for in Matrus, three strikes and you re outpermanentlyas in dead The death of this bully, no matter that it was unintentional, would cost her everything, including her life There would be nosecond chances Fortunately for our young heroine, fate intervenes and she is offered an opportunity to serve her country by accepting an undercover mission in Patrus where she is expected to recover a mysterious object stolen from a Matrian lab in an act of espionage by a Patrian sympathizer If she can successfully complete her assignment, she will be granted her life, her freedom, and finally allowed to see her brother with whom she s had no contact at all for eight long years But women residing in Patrus have no rights and must be owned by a male citizen They must submit to men and are only allowed out of the home when accompanied by a male guardian A woman in Patrus is in constant danger with perils at every turn, especially a Matrian woman like Violet who is unfamiliar with the laws and customs of Patrus No self respecting woman of Matrus would ever allow themselves to be owned, subjugated and treated as chattel by any man Yet, if she is to complete her mission, she must acquiesce and submit It seems either way, Violet is at risk of losing her life so clearly, her only choice is to accept the assignment and become a pawn in the centuries old struggle between Matrus and Patrus Violet quickly realizes she must use her keen intelligence along with every skill she possesses if she is to complete her mission and survive But never having known a man other than her brother, the one thing Violet could never have anticipated is the effect of meeting the ruggedly handsome Viggo Croft, a natural born male citizen of Patrus who stirs her blood and clouds her senses with emotions unlike anything she s ever experienced And even worse, Viggo is a warden of Patrus, an enforcer of the law, and should be her enemy Despite the risks, Violet finds herself with conflicting emotions regarding the handsome Viggo But whom can Violet trust What does the future hold for Violet, Viggo and the two opposing nations of Matrus and Patrus The Gender Secret Book TwoOur story resumes with Violet once again running for her life and struggling to survive She is wanted for crimes against Patrus which resulted in dozens of Patrian deaths but even worse, she has been betrayed not only by Lee Bertrand in his attempt to frame her for the murder of Queen Rina and Professor Alistair Jenks but also by her own mother nation of Matrus Violet finally realizes that she has been manipulated by the very people she trusted and used as a pawn in an elaborate conspiracy Now both nations want her dead Knowing her betrayal has probably resulted in Viggo s imprisonment or, even worse, his death, Violet battles her inner turmoil as well as her conscience and struggles to find the strength to continue Every step of Violet s journey bringssecrets to light which unfortunately results in evenperplexing questions With nowhere to go and no one to trust, Violet battles to persevere, vowing to find her brother Tim and somehow rescue him But will Violet be prepared for what she finds Facing unimaginable perils, harrowing danger and insurmountable odds, can Violet defy fate and once again find a way to survive We ll see The Gender Lie Book ThreeNot only did Viggo survive, he has now been tasked with the job of capturing Violet and returning her to Patrus to answer for her crimes Thanks to Lee Bertrand s implanted tracking device, Viggo tracks Violet to The Green but once again must save her life Despite his anger at being used as a scapegoat by Violet and Lee in their plan to steal the egg, Viggo quickly realizes he still has feelings for the lovely brave Violet and after hearing her story, knows there s no way he can return her to Patrus which would most likely result in certain death Violet is now a wanted fugitive by Matrus and Patrus so where will they go What will they do That question is soon answered when they discover an abandoned underground secret facility located deep within The Green They take refuge inside only to discover Viggo was not the only one searching for Violet Elena, the new Queen of Matrus has sent Violet s former mentor, Melissa Dale, to capture Violet and return her Matrus to face the charge of murdering the former queen Oddly, Queen Elena is not content with sending only Ms Dale she also enlists the help of her genetically enhanced twin sisters in capturing Violet Viggo and Melissa Dale find themselves in a precarious unexpected alliance They must work together to eliminate the twins but Viggo makes a critical sacrifice that may cost him his life This time, it s Violet s turn to save Viggo but Violet quickly discovers in order to save his life, she must accept help from a new player in this perilous game of life and death A new rebel faction calling themselves The Liberators has suddenly appeared and Violet quickly learns that the Desmond to whom Lee Bertrand s letter was addressed, is so muchthan Lee s middle name Desmond is not a dual personality of Lee as Violet originally suspected but is, in fact, a real person and he is a she Not only is she a woman, Desmond is Desmond Bertrand, Lee Bertrand s mother Huh Oh yes, and that s not all She s also the leader of rebel faction The Liberators What Yes, she s the mother of the same Lee Bertrand Violet killed in self defense Oh my And without Desmond s help, Viggo will die Oh dear With limited options and no other viable choice, Violet must choose to trust Desmond but as evensecrets are revealed including the fate of the missing boys of Matrus, Violet begins to recognize the true complexity of her situation Both nations have perpetuated a tenuous web of lies and the loyal citizens of Matrus and Patrus are nothingthan innocent victims to be used as pawns in an evil cabal Regrettably, Violet learns too late that Desmond isthan she portrays herself to be and so muchthan Violet ever suspected With Viggo, Tim and Melissa Dale s life in jeopardy as well as her own.again it appears the time has finally come to pay the piper, and the price may be their lives Is Desmond Bertrand the Pied Piper or is she merely a puppet being controlled by another puppet master in a muchsinister game Will Violet, Viggo, Tim and Ms Dale once again find a way to survive We ll see Oh my This story continues to get even darker andconvoluted and I can t get enough Buckle up, my lovelies It s a wild ride Yee Haw The Gender War Book FourThe adventure continues in a race against the clock with evenpulse pounding thrills, chills, lies, deceit, betrayal, action, suspense, heartwrenching angst and gripping emotion as Violet and Viggo are forced to face the true depth of their feelings And with the help of their small but mighty band of followers, our group of unlikely heroes square off against Desmond, King Maxen, Queen Elena and Princess Tabitha in a no holds barred struggle for the fate of both nations Loyalties are tested and lives hang in the balance Who will live and who will die Oh my This just gets better and better Did I like this book No, I LOVED it Once I started reading this story, I simply could not stop I was riveted to my seat, white knuckling my ereader with my heart fluttering wildly in my chest while the hours passed as quickly as the pages, and loved every single minute It was magnificent Would I recommend this book You bet and I am, for a wide variety of ages Although there is some violence included, it s not gory or graphic, but this book does contain a tiny bit of mild profanity There is a sweet blossoming romance but no explicit sex I would probably give this book a PG rating, ages thirteen to one hundred Will I read this author again Abso freaking lutely Just as soon as she releases her next book And finally, was I entertained Good gracious, YES I was completely captivated No spoilers from me, but I will say, if you re looking for an intriguing, well crafted, post apocalyptic, somewhat dystopian, fantasy science fiction saga featuring a gutsy, troubled but compassionate kick butt underdog heroine perfectly paired with an intense, gruff yet surprisingly sensitive, ruggedly handsome unlikely hero, and filled to the brim with danger, drama, action, adventure, fantasy, hardship, angst, bravery, loyalty, betrayal, mystery, suspense, intrigue, espionage, mind blowing plot twists and the hopeful promise of forbidden love, then this book is definitely for you Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read

    Uh so yeah This one was also bad On the bright side, I m over halfway through the series now On the extra bright side, I m not sure the library I m going to even has the next one, so maybe I ll forget about these dumb things and not have to read one ever again.The worldbuilding is still so bad, and it this point it s making me cringe New things, like heloships and news tickers, are introduced despite having never been mentioned before and don t have much relevance to the story Things from t Uh so yeah This one was also bad On the bright side, I m over halfway through the series now On the extra bright side, I m not sure the library I m going to even has the next one, so maybe I ll forget about these dumb things and not have to read one ever again.The worldbuilding is still so bad, and it this point it s making me cringe New things, like heloships and news tickers, are introduced despite having never been mentioned before and don t have much relevance to the story Things from the earlier books, like the women country being obsessed with crossbows, just aren t there any Some of the technology is normal, like there being regular cars and motorcycles and stuff, and some is futuristic, like the heloships and the flying motorcycles which have also been never mentioned again , and some is very outdated, like the fact that there aren t cellphones or an equivalent and the news tickers print news out onto paperThe societies are still bad and don t work I also still really don t like the writing No typos that I noticed, at least granted, I did skip sizable portions near the end , but the grammar was atrocious The narrators were completely indistinguishable from one another The phrasing was the worst I think the dialogue may have been written by a robot, because I don t think a human could ever think that humans talk like that The plot is as bad as ever It s becomingandapparent that there are no consequences to anything There have still been no character deaths, and any injuries the characters have sustained have been completely without permanent consequence Someone will be hurt or maybe a little angry or sad at another character, but it gets fixed within like two pages, or also possibly ignored Even though the decisions the main characters make are often stupid, everything always goes perfectly fine, or at least fine to the degree that they recover with no consequences once again I honestly don t really know the actual plot of this book Stuff happens, and then when it starts to drag, an unprompted and unforeshadowed event happens, resulting in the death of a few unnamed extras at the most, and maybe the characters move to a new location Then rinse and repeat There was basically no direction and it was so slow I straight up skipped some sections waiting for something to happen The characters are also terrible The ever growing cast of side characters are virtually indistinguishable from each other, with the exception of maybe four characters out of upwards of twenty that have two personality traits instead of one The side characters are given no development, even the ones that are supposedly close to the main characters, like the brother and Ms Dale The main characters still suck Viggo is about as interesting as a piece of cardboard with a couple of wood shavings occasionally sprinkled on for flavor His personality changes for whatever suits the scene Violet still sucks She s a little less flat and boring, but her personality completely shifts for each and every scene she s in Her motivations change every other page The most important thing to her is Viggo, no it s her brother, no it s her country, no it s ending the war, no it s the people, no it s her cousin that hasn t been mentioned for two books it s bad and I m tired The romance has no chemistry and is annoyingly prominent So this was a terrible symphony of bad I honestly don t know which of these is the worst, but I m so very tired of them This might not have been the boring either the second or third was, I don t really remember which was which , but it was still bad These were obviously churned out in first drafts by someone who didn t care at all about their work
