Well Knows I Love knows I love good dystopian novel For far too long I ve heard dystopian is deaddying yet incredible new stories keep flying into my inbox I still haven t uite figured out why the bookish community has written off this fascinating genre With so many uniue twists on dystopian literature floating out there I m confident there s something out there for all readersLast week I was contacted by a new indie author about a new release that really caught my ye It s been a while since I ve devoured a new sci fi dystopian
but I couldn t pass this one up Could Dissolution live up I couldn t pass this one up Could Dissolution live up the hypeYes And then someWhile I won t go so far as to say that Dissolution was the most original idea I have read in the genre I was still ngrossed from page one It s a short read clocking in at just over 100 pages on my Nook that I was able to devour in just one sitting It s fast paced and written with a fresh voice I haven t seen in some time Hawke is definitely an author I will be watching When it comes to the plot Dissolution reads much in the same vein as other dystopians such as Veronica Roth s Divergent or Sarah Negovetich s Acceptance series A futuristic society divided into factions following the story of one rogue girl looking to make a difference and change the future forever What s different Oh boy Hawke makes her mark let s just say that Madeline our heroine doesn t mess around Dissolution is truly the first new adult dystopian novel I have read The stakes are higher and it s filled with far adult themes than other novels in the genre I have read The ntire story has an incredible darkominous tone that definitely will leave you full of reflection by the time you finish While the language and content are than appropriate for young adult readers as well Dissolution is one of those stories that really begs for mature readers and thought It s truly a testament to the uniue writing style of Hawke to provoke such thought with a novel such as Dissolution The story isn t bogged down with world building or rules but Hawke still manages to give us a complete setting that is asy to follow throughout the story Definitely worth checking out for all readers looking to add something new to their TBRI m not uite sure what Hawke has planned for the future of this series but I know that this reader will be watching her career intently Don t miss this opportunity to add this incredible new dystopian read to your TBR today I am so Building the Cold War excited to be granting Dissolution by Lee S Hawke a well deserved 4 star review Highly recommended to all fans of sci fi and dystopian you won t regret this read AN AWESOME NOVEL YOU NEED TO READ STATFull review here future Madeline lives in isn t a bright one Toxic rivers arid deserts the world beyond the wall is beyond hope of saving But her city Unilox seems to be a beacon of life and hope minus the freedom You see the city is runntirely by corporations and being a citizen means being a part of one of them Not just as an Canadian Art, Volume 1 (A-F) employee but as a purchased product what belongs to them At 18 gaining citizenship means being auctioned off and having your contract purchased by any one of these corporations Your life belongs to them and they decide your value But it s a system that works Everyone gets along swimmingly in this future there are incredibly high tech body augmentations available toveryone which allow you to have bionic Counter-Amores eyes or to have tastes fed to your brain which make the nutrient mush youat taste like anything you want People are healthy and happy The problem is that they all wear collarsMadeline belongs to ANRON the medical corporation They run tests on verything and her own parents have payed the cost with their own health being xperimental themselves Madeline wants to be purchased by MERCE the tech industry but when she isn t Double Jeopardy even called up at the auction her hopes of reaching her dreams are shattered When she learns that ANRON never intended to give up her license and they would rather have her on a metal slab to slice her open she must make a daringscape to fight for her freedom in a world where only a handful are truly freeHawke creates an amazing world for us to fall into The world of people as products and human auctions almost feels real and somehow completely believable From the first page we re pulled into Unilox and we re rooting for Madeline as she nervously prepares to be sold at auction Yup we re xcited for her At first glance you might think this looks like the usual YA but I m here to tell you that it s much much For one you don t have a silly love triangle getting in the way of the plot Madeline s relationship with Jake is something that both drives her and motivates her and it s healthy and heartbreaking Honestly it was refreshing to read Even though it broke me in the ndThe plot is also intensely gripping Madeline s only goal is to survive and this leads her to discover th. What would you sell yourself forMadeline knows She’s spent the last ighteen years impatiently waiting for her Auctioning so she can sell herself to MERCE Solutio.
read DissolutionYthing seems like utopia but what you re
living aa lieI love the journey that Madeline goes on to discover the truth about her city She s outsider and there seems to be something almost superhuman about her I assume that this is probably related to the circumstances surrounding her conception and birth but it s never xplicitly stated and I love that I can come to my own conclusionThis story is filled with the darker aspects of society although it does feel like a somewhat light read and I put this down to it being a novella and not a full novel It s a short but Dark Voices enjoyable read and the twistnding is amazing It s something I ve wanted to do in my own writing for a long time and I m so glad to know that having a surprising Contested Reproduction ending like that actually worksI am so impressed with Dissolution My only complaint is that it was a little bit short Injoyed it so much that I wished it was a full length novel because there was so much I wanted to know about the world DISSOLUTION was an interesting dystopian novella that had great authentic ideas but lacked in detail and Divided by Color (American Politics and Political Economy Series) execution I really liked the idea of corporations owning itsmployees and seeing them as assets to be traded and sold However the world building felt incomplete and the char Now I know what you re thinking yay another dystopian to add to all the other dystopians flooding the market But trust me this one is unlike anything you ve read Yes it does have some shades of The Hunger Games Divergent and Creating Country Music even a bit of The Givermbedded in it but the premise underneath those Blacklands elements is refreshing different and thought provoking Everything a good science fiction tale should beHawke s world is dominated by corporations and a person s value isntirely dependent on how much they can give what their productivity is likely to be how their skills rank against the corporations needs They re not people they re drones slaves Licensed IP to be bought and traded and sold It s chilling and a cautionary message to the workaholics of the worldBut while there is a very strong thread of social commentary running throughout it takes a back seat to the larger tale which is an action packed cyberpunk thriller in the vein of Phillip K DickMadeline Maddie has spent her Evolutionary Patterns entire life dreaming ofscape from ANRON Life Limited pegging all her hopes on the possibility of being purchased by MERCE the technology oriented corporation where she can put her modding skills to good use and where she ll no longer be a human lab rat But after years of rigorous trials and tests competition and an interview process that feels like an interrogation than an interview she finds that there was never any chance for Evolution As Entropy escape Her life has always belonged to ANRON and now they want it back They re revoking her license sentencing her to death in the name of scienceAnd she s having none of it Alone disconnected from the technology that serves as a lifeline for most of the city s denizens and on the run she learns the true difference between good andvil And in the process she discovers that the corporations aren t as untouchable as they seemBrilliant Forging Gay Identities emotional and intelligent Dissolution is a highly satisfying read It is a novella but don t let that scare you off It s a complete self contained and moving tale that will challenge you to rethink your own views on corporations and technology in general It s a smart well written amazing piece of storytelling and should not be missedDisclaimer I was theditor for this title however all opinions stated are my own and were not influenced by bias or compensation Madeline has spent her life training and preparing for the day she would be Forbidden History eligible to put herself up for auction atighteen She wants nothing to Fiche Blian ag Fás escape from Anron Life Limited and being a human lab rat and be purchased by another company called Merce that is technology oriented On the day of the auctions though Maddie finds herself still standing after all of the others have been auctioned off and she s told that she s not on the list Now it comes to light that she was never able to be sold and that Anron owns her outright and now they want to put her to death Dissolution is a rather short read that you can see touches of other dystopian novels such as Divergent Hunger Games and The Giver The teen MC is set to find out where she will be sent the rest of her life and then things go wrong for her at the ceremony In this book Maddie finds herself needing to fight back against the corporations in controlWhat I found with this one that kept me from rating a bit higher is that it has that novella curse to it that I just found myself wanting a bit out it when done Being so short it was a goodnough story but it could have been great if things get Esteem Enlivened by Desire expanded andxplained with depth than is possible in a novella Overall 35 stars A good read but could have used Flights of Fancy, Leaps of Faith expanding to be better I received a copy from the publisher inxchange for an
