Summary

Four tests. Seven days. Nine teens. 

Only the chosen shall breed.

This is definitely way up there with the Hunger Games and Divergent!

Humans now live in a super greenhouse. Seas have risen. Oceans have acidified. And the fight for resources is deadly. To ensure nothing of this magnitude ever happens again, only those with enough intelligence and heart will earn the right to bear children and heal the earth. 

Nine teens must face the tests of the Proving to decide who will be Bound to this new order. Four of them will challenge the system in ways even they can’t imagine.

Nova. The gentle soul who has everything to lose.

Kian. The champion of this new world who’s determined to succeed. 

Dex. The one who'll learn nothing is as it seems.

Wren. The rebel who wants nothing to do with any of it.

As the fight to breed becomes a fight to survive, rules are broken, and hearts are captured. This Proving won’t just decide the future of this new order, it will decide the future of humankind.

Lovers of Divergent, The Hunger Games, and The Maze Runner series will be blown away by the breathtaking new series from USA Today best-selling author Tamar Sloan and award-winning author Heidi Catherine.

Good plot

I enjoyed the book. The overall plot is very good, however it is quite predictable... Some character stories are too immature, too much emphasis on the relationship between 2 characters, and really not that great. The story could be amazing if focused more on the culture rather than specific reltionship

Entertaining

There is a slow burn between two of the characters. the plots and characters are developed just enough to keep the story interesting. It's really hard to be creative in this genre. With that in mind, the writer brought plenty of her own nuances to life in creating a very different post apocalyptic/ almost utopian spin to a saturated genre. My interest has been peaked with this one! I bought the next audiobook.
