The Change: An Action Adventure Romance

Five hundred years in the future, nine out of every ten births are female. Males have been declared ‘protected’ (enslaved) to stop the human race from going extinct, and the only way to get a mate, to have a chance at a family, is to enter the Games. In this post-apocalyptic future, the Network Council makes the rules and these tyrants never play fair. The competition is fierce and even the winner leaves damaged.

The Games

After the apocalypse, there were no jails, no police. We had to do something with the criminals. Letting those killers fight it out for our entertainment achieved two goals at once. The apocalypse was depressing. Fresh blood brightened our day.” –The Network Council, 93AW.

Centuries later, the simple battles have evolved into a biological dystopian nightmare where the contestants are all female and the prizes are enslaved males who have been programed to be perfect, submissive mates. Families are strongly encouraged to sell any sons to the Network in exchange for food and fame. Those who resist are labeled rebels and tracked down by bounty hunters with no mercy.

Candice and Daniel

Daniel is a slave. His family treats him as such.

Candice is a bounty hunter, an employee of the post-apocalyptic government that rules their lives.

Their relationship is forbidden, but not even a biological conspiracy can stop the forbidden romance from growing into an adventure that will lead a nation into their rebel cause. Torn apart when Daniel is sold, Candice Pruett will keep her promise to bring him home or die trying. Finally of age to enter, she is about to challenge the rulers who force them all to exist in torment. If she wins, she just might create a rebellion that leads to a future where the tyrants no longer exist.

I did not enjoy
November 5th, 2015
I liked the fact that the story was very avant-garde, but the writing was so disjointed that it was quite confusing to follow at times. It wasn't always this way, but a good portion of the beginning, and interspersed parts throughout were like this. I do not enjoy books that I have to go back and read the passage again due to it not making sense the first time through.

It's all good unless you think of magic.

With the sudden physiological changes, no description of how the body can physically change that much in so short a time, I am left with a magical transformation, in a book that isn't supposed to deal with magic. Otherwise the action and plot are nice, and it has hot sex scenes.
