Surviving Passion by Maia Underwood

An outstanding dystopian debut novel by an independently published author; this book is a thrilling and believable journey into a possible near future.  The story is fast-paced, and I like that certain characters remain mysterious enigmas throughout most of the book while others are more open with plainer motivations.  I especially like Selena’s spirit and fortitude; she may not always make the best decisions, but she always stays true to her personal code. Dan displays heroic restraint when it comes to Selena, but in battle, he strikes fiercely and with a vengeance that is fearsome. Dan is the epitome of a selfless and formidable champion.  Suitable for older teens and adults, this book leaves me eager for a sequel. Read Full Review
