* A solid read - I'm not itching to go buy a copy of my own, but probably will when a sequel is released. Also, just announced - books 3 & 4 in the series are now under contract.
A bit like other books:
- The world feels a bit like that of The Hunger Games, with the amphitheater fighting.
- Something in it made me think of the Lunar Chronicles.
The strong female protagonist is in the spirit of those from Tamora Pierce.
I appreciated the issues of race and equity raised in the plot.
