    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to Blaze Publishing and NetGalley.) This was a YA dystopian story, about a world where children were taken from their parents and put to work. Vera was an okay character, but I found it hard to care what happened to her. H...

    Vee Delancourt and her twin brother Oliver were surrendered to the government when they were ten because of a tax on families with more than one child. When their younger sister was born their parents tried to make the tax for a while but just couldn't do it and the twins refused to be...

    Actual Rating. 3.5 Stars I love when a dystopian makes me question the workings of society. This book had me wondering what I would do to fix things in that dystopian world. Like most dystopians, it also made me appreciate what I have. This novel had some emotional topics that added...

    I haven't read a good dystopian YA book in a while, and this one was fantastic. It made me take a look at the terrible things that could really happen especially to children. I loved Vee, and I thought she was a strong character. There was plenty of action and betrayal to keep me wanti...

    Below is my review of Case Maynard's The Surrendered. You can also find the review - as well as my (spoiler free) synopsis of the plot and additional information about the book - on my website. After sitting down and tearing through the whole book in about six hours, I was left feel...

    First of all, I would like to thank Blaze Publishing for providing me with a digital copy in exchange of a honest review. This was so much fun! I really liked the characters and the many plottwists! The story was really catchy and Vee is a super strong character! I loved Carson! ...

    I found Case Maynard?s ?The Surrendered? to be an intriguing tale which made me think?just what would happen if the United States fell. Maynard did a good job of delivering a story about a system (incidentally called The System) which employed child slave labor and tyrannic...

    Note: A copy of this book was provided via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This Dystopian plays in future America after a financial breakdown, when The System has taken over and parents have to start to pay The Tax. Those who can't afford The Tax for their children after...

    The Surrendered is an interesting take on the United States and the troubles we are currently in. With election season right around the corner - and quite possibly the most controversial election - Case Maynard presents us with her perspective of what could happen to our country if con...

    I'm kinda straight down the middle with my like and dislike of this book. Likes: The action. I hated the people who controlled this system of children slavery and wanted them to get what was coming to them. Some action happens pretty early on involving the Vera and kept going from ...

    The Surrendered was awesome. I read it straight through from the moment I started. Stopping only for sleep, hygiene and to take care of my children. You know, feed them and stuff. I am not going to give out any spoilers, of course, but I'll tell you a bit about my thoughts. I f...

    I really love the dystopian genre so when I received an ARC to the second book in this series, I obviously had to start by reading the first book. Overall I give this book 3.5/5 stars. I really enjoyed the writing and the world building, however because I read so many dystopian books, ...

    Wow?a strong heroine, with exceptional supporting characters, add in a non nauseating romance, and this book has it all. Book Title: Surrendered Author: Case Maynard Series: Surrendered #1 Genre: YA, Dystopian, Love & Stuff Publisher: Blaze Publishing Source: I received a...

    Unputdownable, edge of the seat stuff. World building was spot on, I could visualise everything. I didn't see the words but images, I lived every word in the book. The characters were spot on too. There were curveballs coming from every side, I was so engrossed in the book I cou...

    My biggest problem in life is having high expectations. It doesn't matter if we are talking about simply ordering food or buying a house, my imagination is always running wild and I set myself up for disappointment when I shouldn't. So maybe 3 stars for me (btw, on goodreads this rat...

    This was a well written and fast paced story that grips you and keeps you wanting to continue reading this book. The world building was outstanding and the characters were beautiful and heartbreaking. It is full of unexpected twists and turns and I went through a range of emotions whil...

    *** I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. *** This book is perfect for fans of Divergent and the Hunger Games. The story gives the reader a scary look at what could happen to society if the world sustained financial disasters that knocke...

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review! Stars (Out of 10): 9/10 Stars Overall Thoughts: This book actually made me want to start reading Dystopian again. I have read so much of the same thing over and over, that it felt like dystopia was just a formu...

    I'm not a big fan of YA Dystopia anymore, but this book is short, so I gave it a shot. I got surprised. I don't know what it was, but this book started out really good. It had a cruelty we see every day in this world - if we open our eyes and pay attention - and so it was easy t...

    Vee Delancourt and her twin brother Oliver were surrendered to the government when they were ten because of a tax on families with more than one child. When their younger sister was born their parents tried to make the tax for a while but just couldn't do it and the twins refused to be...

    Actual Rating. 3.5 Stars I love when a dystopian makes me question the workings of society. This book had me wondering what I would do to fix things in that dystopian world. Like most dystopians, it also made me appreciate what I have. This novel had some emotional topics that added...

    I haven't read a good dystopian YA book in a while, and this one was fantastic. It made me take a look at the terrible things that could really happen especially to children. I loved Vee, and I thought she was a strong character. There was plenty of action and betrayal to keep me wanti...

    Below is my review of Case Maynard's The Surrendered. You can also find the review - as well as my (spoiler free) synopsis of the plot and additional information about the book - on my website. After sitting down and tearing through the whole book in about six hours, I was left feel...

    First of all, I would like to thank Blaze Publishing for providing me with a digital copy in exchange of a honest review. This was so much fun! I really liked the characters and the many plottwists! The story was really catchy and Vee is a super strong character! I loved Carson! ...

    I found Case Maynard?s ?The Surrendered? to be an intriguing tale which made me think?just what would happen if the United States fell. Maynard did a good job of delivering a story about a system (incidentally called The System) which employed child slave labor and tyrannic...

    Note: A copy of this book was provided via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This Dystopian plays in future America after a financial breakdown, when The System has taken over and parents have to start to pay The Tax. Those who can't afford The Tax for their children after...

    The Surrendered is an interesting take on the United States and the troubles we are currently in. With election season right around the corner - and quite possibly the most controversial election - Case Maynard presents us with her perspective of what could happen to our country if con...

    I'm kinda straight down the middle with my like and dislike of this book. Likes: The action. I hated the people who controlled this system of children slavery and wanted them to get what was coming to them. Some action happens pretty early on involving the Vera and kept going from ...

    The Surrendered was awesome. I read it straight through from the moment I started. Stopping only for sleep, hygiene and to take care of my children. You know, feed them and stuff. I am not going to give out any spoilers, of course, but I'll tell you a bit about my thoughts. I f...

    I really love the dystopian genre so when I received an ARC to the second book in this series, I obviously had to start by reading the first book. Overall I give this book 3.5/5 stars. I really enjoyed the writing and the world building, however because I read so many dystopian books, ...

    Wow?a strong heroine, with exceptional supporting characters, add in a non nauseating romance, and this book has it all. Book Title: Surrendered Author: Case Maynard Series: Surrendered #1 Genre: YA, Dystopian, Love & Stuff Publisher: Blaze Publishing Source: I received a...

    My biggest problem in life is having high expectations. It doesn't matter if we are talking about simply ordering food or buying a house, my imagination is always running wild and I set myself up for disappointment when I shouldn't. So maybe 3 stars for me (btw, on goodreads this rat...

    I'm not a big fan of YA Dystopia anymore, but this book is short, so I gave it a shot. I got surprised. I don't know what it was, but this book started out really good. It had a cruelty we see every day in this world - if we open our eyes and pay attention - and so it was easy t...

    I have been on a serious contemporary binge for the last couple of months, so throwing in a dystopian, and a great one at that, was extremely refreshing! I kept picking up the book right before bedtime so it took me about 4 days to get just 10% in. Yesterday, I finally got some free ti...

    A little synopsis: It's a dystopian so it obviously takes place in the future and America has been declared by The Master under The Tax, because of which people have to pay fees to keep their children with them, if they are not able to or won't, they will have to Surrender their child...

    Unputdownable, edge of the seat stuff. World building was spot on, I could visualise everything. I didn't see the words but images, I lived every word in the book. The characters were spot on too. There were curveballs coming from every side, I was so engrossed in the book I cou...

    My biggest problem in life is having high expectations. It doesn't matter if we are talking about simply ordering food or buying a house, my imagination is always running wild and I set myself up for disappointment when I shouldn't. So maybe 3 stars for me (btw, on goodreads this rat...

    The Surrendered is a stunning debut novel from author Case Maynard. This is a new and unique dystopian story which is a breath of fresh air. The writing is superb and I think this author and this book will go places. I recommend it to all lovers of this genre. 4/5 stars ...

    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to Blaze Publishing and NetGalley.) This was a YA dystopian story, about a world where children were taken from their parents and put to work. Vera was an okay character, but I found it hard to care what happened to her. H...

    Vee Delancourt and her twin brother Oliver were surrendered to the government when they were ten because of a tax on families with more than one child. When their younger sister was born their parents tried to make the tax for a while but just couldn't do it and the twins refused to be...

    Actual Rating. 3.5 Stars I love when a dystopian makes me question the workings of society. This book had me wondering what I would do to fix things in that dystopian world. Like most dystopians, it also made me appreciate what I have. This novel had some emotional topics that added...

    I haven't read a good dystopian YA book in a while, and this one was fantastic. It made me take a look at the terrible things that could really happen especially to children. I loved Vee, and I thought she was a strong character. There was plenty of action and betrayal to keep me wanti...

    The Surrendered is an interesting take on the United States and the troubles we are currently in. With election season right around the corner - and quite possibly the most controversial election - Case Maynard presents us with her perspective of what could happen to our country if con...

    I'm kinda straight down the middle with my like and dislike of this book. Likes: The action. I hated the people who controlled this system of children slavery and wanted them to get what was coming to them. Some action happens pretty early on involving the Vera and kept going from ...

    The Surrendered was awesome. I read it straight through from the moment I started. Stopping only for sleep, hygiene and to take care of my children. You know, feed them and stuff. I am not going to give out any spoilers, of course, but I'll tell you a bit about my thoughts. I f...

    Vee Delancourt and her twin brother Oliver were surrendered to the government when they were ten because of a tax on families with more than one child. When their younger sister was born their parents tried to make the tax for a while but just couldn't do it and the twins refused to be...

    Actual Rating. 3.5 Stars I love when a dystopian makes me question the workings of society. This book had me wondering what I would do to fix things in that dystopian world. Like most dystopians, it also made me appreciate what I have. This novel had some emotional topics that added...

    I haven't read a good dystopian YA book in a while, and this one was fantastic. It made me take a look at the terrible things that could really happen especially to children. I loved Vee, and I thought she was a strong character. There was plenty of action and betrayal to keep me wanti...

    Below is my review of Case Maynard's The Surrendered. You can also find the review - as well as my (spoiler free) synopsis of the plot and additional information about the book - on my website. After sitting down and tearing through the whole book in about six hours, I was left feel...

    First of all, I would like to thank Blaze Publishing for providing me with a digital copy in exchange of a honest review. This was so much fun! I really liked the characters and the many plottwists! The story was really catchy and Vee is a super strong character! I loved Carson! ...

    I found Case Maynard?s ?The Surrendered? to be an intriguing tale which made me think?just what would happen if the United States fell. Maynard did a good job of delivering a story about a system (incidentally called The System) which employed child slave labor and tyrannic...

    Note: A copy of this book was provided via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This Dystopian plays in future America after a financial breakdown, when The System has taken over and parents have to start to pay The Tax. Those who can't afford The Tax for their children after...

    The Surrendered is an interesting take on the United States and the troubles we are currently in. With election season right around the corner - and quite possibly the most controversial election - Case Maynard presents us with her perspective of what could happen to our country if con...

    I'm kinda straight down the middle with my like and dislike of this book. Likes: The action. I hated the people who controlled this system of children slavery and wanted them to get what was coming to them. Some action happens pretty early on involving the Vera and kept going from ...

    The Surrendered was awesome. I read it straight through from the moment I started. Stopping only for sleep, hygiene and to take care of my children. You know, feed them and stuff. I am not going to give out any spoilers, of course, but I'll tell you a bit about my thoughts. I f...

    I really love the dystopian genre so when I received an ARC to the second book in this series, I obviously had to start by reading the first book. Overall I give this book 3.5/5 stars. I really enjoyed the writing and the world building, however because I read so many dystopian books, ...

    Wow?a strong heroine, with exceptional supporting characters, add in a non nauseating romance, and this book has it all. Book Title: Surrendered Author: Case Maynard Series: Surrendered #1 Genre: YA, Dystopian, Love & Stuff Publisher: Blaze Publishing Source: I received a...

    Unputdownable, edge of the seat stuff. World building was spot on, I could visualise everything. I didn't see the words but images, I lived every word in the book. The characters were spot on too. There were curveballs coming from every side, I was so engrossed in the book I cou...

    My biggest problem in life is having high expectations. It doesn't matter if we are talking about simply ordering food or buying a house, my imagination is always running wild and I set myself up for disappointment when I shouldn't. So maybe 3 stars for me (btw, on goodreads this rat...

    This was a well written and fast paced story that grips you and keeps you wanting to continue reading this book. The world building was outstanding and the characters were beautiful and heartbreaking. It is full of unexpected twists and turns and I went through a range of emotions whil...

    *** I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. *** This book is perfect for fans of Divergent and the Hunger Games. The story gives the reader a scary look at what could happen to society if the world sustained financial disasters that knocke...

    The Surrendered is a stunning debut novel from author Case Maynard. This is a new and unique dystopian story which is a breath of fresh air. The writing is superb and I think this author and this book will go places. I recommend it to all lovers of this genre. 4/5 stars ...

    Case Maynard hit a home run with her debut The Surrendered. I really enjoyed this book and can hardly wait to see what she releases next. Full Review To Come ...

    2.5 Stars Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com Imagine a world in which one has to pay taxes for each of their children (more than 1 child per family) and these taxes are so high that rather than pay them, people send their en masse to farms and workhouses...

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review! Stars (Out of 10): 9/10 Stars Overall Thoughts: This book actually made me want to start reading Dystopian again. I have read so much of the same thing over and over, that it felt like dystopia was just a formu...

    I'm not a big fan of YA Dystopia anymore, but this book is short, so I gave it a shot. I got surprised. I don't know what it was, but this book started out really good. It had a cruelty we see every day in this world - if we open our eyes and pay attention - and so it was easy t...

    I received this book for free from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This book was fantastic! It is a very compelling dystopian that will make you think about so many issues. While reading this I kept putting myself in the shoes of some of the characters....

    I?d like to Thank Netgallery for providing me with a digital copy of this book in exchange for a honest Review. I gotta say that the premise was very interesting and captivating. It?s all about a Dystopian society where children have a Tax that is really high and has to be paid ...

    I have been on a serious contemporary binge for the last couple of months, so throwing in a dystopian, and a great one at that, was extremely refreshing! I kept picking up the book right before bedtime so it took me about 4 days to get just 10% in. Yesterday, I finally got some free ti...

    I received the ebook in exchange for an honest review on netgalley. This is a rather short book, so I didn't expect a lot of dept. I was wrong... The concept behind the story I found very interesting and intriguing. I loved reading this book! ...

    Rating: 5/5 Genre: YA Dystopian Recommended Age: 15+ (trigger warnings: sexual abuse/rape, mature language, and violent death of children). I received a free copy of this book because I?m a rep of Blaze Publishing. This relationship did not sway my opinion in any manner. ...
