First book in the series:
Elected (The Elected series #1)
By Rori Shay
Genre: Dystopia
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: April 8, 2014

Blurb:
It’s the year 2185, and in two weeks, Aloy will turn eighteen and take her father’s place as president of the country. But to do so, she must masquerade as a boy to avoid violating the Eco-Accords, four treaties designed to bring the world back from the brink of environmental extinction. Aloy hopes to govern like her father, but she is inheriting a different country. The long concealed Technology Faction is stepping out of the shadows, and as turmoil grows within her country, cryptic threats also arrive from beyond their borders.
As she struggles to lead, Aloy maintains her cover by marrying a woman, meanwhile battling feelings for the boy who knows her secret—the boy who is somehow connected to her country’s recent upheaval. When assassination attempts add to the turmoil, Aloy doesn’t know whom to trust. She understood leadership required sacrifice. She just didn’t realize the sacrifice might be her life.

My Review
Elected:
I was captivated by page one! The dystopian future created was truly unique and can not be compared to any other YA dystopian novel out right now. The characters created were strong and easy to relate too. You will find yourself attached to Aloy in a way that will have you bite your nails off. The story created will compel you to keep reading to the last page, so start this book on a night you do not need to wake up early. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys books, because the writing is just top notch. This book was original, well written, has a great story line, and strong characters this is a must read!
Suspected:
I honestly did not feel like the second book could live up to the first one because the first one was so good. However I was so wrong and truly happy about it! If you have be let down a lot lately by YA books then you need to pick up this series immediately. The first book was fast paced and had a suspenseful plot. Suspected follows suit with a fast pace nail biting plot, but is different form the first books' layout so it is refreshing. The imagery used to build the world in these books are amazing. Honestly I am impressed by the authors writing talent and style. The character development and emotional journey you take with them is enchanting! This book sets up perfectly for a third book and I can not wait to get my hands on a copy. I am devoted to the outcome of the characters and world created! THIS IS A MUST READ SERIES FOR ALL WHO ENJOY BOOKS!
