Dystopian Domination Prize Pack Giveaway

Hi everyone! This is the very last giveaway for Dystopian Domination. It was really fun! Kai and I had a great time with the event and guess what? I think we’re doing it again next year! It will be bigger for 2012.


For this giveaway, I read and reviewed two books: Legend by Marie Lu and Exodus byJulie Bertagna. I loved both books and I just have to share my thoughts on them. So you could read and check if you would like these books.

Dystopian Prize Pack Giveaway includes:
*CLOSED*

Signed ARC of Legend by Marie Lu
Finished Copy of Exodus by Julie Bertagna
Finished Copy of Zenith by Julie Bertagna

Thank you to Hattie of Pan Macmillan & Marie Lu!

I’m gonna change some of the details since this contest is for Fragments of Life & Amaterasu Reads. We are hosting this one, joined force.

A startling, thrilling novel set in a dystopian future ravaged by global warming. 

It is 2099 - and the world is gradually drowning, as mighty Arctic ice floes melt, the seas rise, and land disappears forever beneath storm-tossed waves. For 15-year-old Mara, her family and community, huddled on the fast-disappearing island of Wing, the new century brings flight. Packed into tiny boats, a terrifying journey begins to a bizarre city that rises into the sky, built on the drowned remains of the ancient city of Glasgow. But even here there is no safety and, shut out of the city, Mara realizes they are asylum-seekers in a world torn between high-tech wizardry and the most primitive injustice. To save her people, Mara must not only find a way into the city but also search for a new land and a new home...

The thrilling sequel to internationally acclaimed Exodus. 

In this compelling continuation of Julie Bertagna’s timely trilogy, the search for a future remains a terrifying fight for survival. Sixteen-year-old Mara and her ship of refugees are tracking the North Star in search of land in the mountains of Greenland to call home. A Gypsea boy named Tuck, orphaned when Mara’s ship plows through his floating city, becomes inextricably linked to their fate. Meanwhile, back in the drowned ruins at the feet of the towering sky city, Fox begins his battle with the cruel, corrupt rulers of the New World. Forced to make their own new beginnings in a savage world, three teens must struggle to make sense of the past, overcome the harsh dangers of the present, and build a future worth living.


What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.



From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.



Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills.
