Review & Giveaway ~ The Polaris Uprising

Title: The Polaris Uprising (Polaris #1)
Author: Jennifer Ibarra
Publication date: October 30th 2013
Genres: Dystopia, Young Adult

In less than seven years, eighteen-year-old Ryla Jensen will succeed her father as the president of Neress, a nation where all citizens are cared for from the moment they’re born. Fed, sheltered, even educated—every need of theirs is met.

The only price they pay is their free will.

Groomed since childhood to take on a role she’s not even sure she wants, Ryla’s only escape from the pressures of duty is her sister, Alanna. But when her eyes are opened to the oppressive regime her father built, she begins to question everything she’s set to inherit—and finds herself at odds with her sister’s blind allegiance to their father.

Torn between loyalty to her family and the fight for freedom, Ryla must decide just how far she’s willing to go to make a stand and risk losing the person she loves most in the world: Alanna.

~ Review ~ 

If you enjoy YA dystopian, then this book is definitely for you.  I tend to devour dystopian reads, and am always surprised at how authors come up with so many variants; thankfully this book was different to all the others I’ve read and I was completely gripped from the start.  Details are slowly provided, letting the world build gradually, which helped keep the attention focused on the events unfolding throughout.  Fast moving, full of action, incredibly descriptive and easy to read, I can’t wait to read more of this trilogy.
