My review for Surrender:
The cover is probably what I give this 3.5 stars. I thought Surrender was better than the 1st book, Possession. Surrender is a futuristic book in 1st point of view. Unlike Possession, the 1st person point of view book flip flops between two characters: Raine and Gunner. Raine lives in Freedom (I find the name of the land ironic) and she has great power that is dangerous, but only a few people know about it. What’s this dangerous power of hers? Her father is extremely powerful and makes her use her power and he’s the Director so she has to follow all the rules or things will go down badly. Raine has a roommate whose name is Vi, short for Violet, and Raine is forced by her father to spy on her because of Violet’s rebellion in Possession. What secrets does Violet have that she’s keeping that Raine’s father is forcing Raine to make reports for him? Gunner also lives in Freedom and he has power, but it isn’t as dangerous as Raine. What’s his power? His roommate is Zenn, Vi’s boyfriend, and he also finds out what is going on from both Zenn and Raine about what Violet and Jag’s rebellion was all about. Unfortunately Violet is so brainwashed she doesn’t even realize what she did. So Raine makes herself a goal that she will make Violet remember what she did with the help of Zenn and Gunner. Raine also falls for Gunner, but because of her father’s rules that’ll be impossible for them to be together. Will they be together? Raine realizes that the wanted and jailed Jag Barque is connected through all this too? How will Raine, Gunner, Zenn, Vi, and Jag get away and live the way with real freedom, not synthetic freedom? And will they be able to pull it off with everyone escaped safely?
