As the five recruits form uneasy alliances in the hellish wasteland that is the training ground, an undeniable attraction develops between Lucky and the rebellious Digory Tycho. But the rules of the training ensure that only one will survive--the strongest recruits receive accolades, wealth, and power while the weakest receive death. With Cole--Lucky's four-year-old brother--being held as "incentive," Lucky must marshal all his skills and use his wits to keep himself alive, no matter what the cost.
My Review: I was quite surprised by this book. I had not heard anything about it so I requested it. I started reading and found it amazingly dark , depressing and desolate. Those are also the reason I could not put this book down. Compelling, creative,and stimulating . The world in this book is amazing. The characters are compelling and well developed. As I read this enthralling tale I found my palms sweating and heart pounding, but I did not want to put it down could not tear my eyes away. I still find myself thinking about the story as I work an I pause to think wow that was a great book.

My Review: This is the first time I have had a repeat author do a book tour on my blog. I am also hosting the 3rd book blog tour in Dec. That being said lets get to the review.
What can I say about this book. You may ask is it better than the first? Oh Yes, I have grown to admire and love the character Junco Coot. She is stronger and fiercer in the second book, but also shows she has a huge heart in this compelling sequel . After Clutch I thought I could not be surprised, but Fledge is full of them. Every page you read pulls you deeper into this riveting world till you feel like your there.
This book is also a roller coaster ride of emotions. Yes there are moments that make you want to cry and then within a page you are cheering again. I don't want to spoil the book for anyone but I consider this a must read if you like action and adventure so far the series has been amazing. Fast paced and heart racing. My pulse quickened and at times stopped cold. The ending was quite a surprise and I thought very original. J.A. Huss is a wonderful author with an amazing vision. I am for more from her. She is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors for two reasons. She introduced me to Sci-Fi a subject I have never read before and, her compelling character who invade your life and your mind (in a good way).

Okay, I signed up twice for this tour and that is fine, I really enjoyed this book so here is the info and the first chapter. If you have not read my review --------> Clutch
J. A. Huss never took a creative writing class in her life. Some would say it shows. Others might cut her some slack. She did however, get educated and graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S. in Equine Science. She had grand dreams of getting a Ph.D. but while she loves science, she hated academia and settled for a M.S. in Forensic Toxicology from the University of Florida.
