After a financial collapse devastates the United States, the new government imposes a tax on the nation’s most valuable resource—the children.

Surrendered at age ten—after her parents could no longer afford her exorbitant fees—Vee Delancourt has spent six hard years at the Mills, alongside her twin, Oliver. With just a year to freedom, they do what they can to stay off the Master’s radar. But when Vee discovers unspeakable things happening to the younger girls in service, she has no choice but to take a stand—a decision that lands her on the run and outside the fence for the first time since the System robbed her of her liberty.

Vee knows the Master will stop at nothing to prove he holds ultimate authority over the Surrendered. But when he makes a threat that goes beyond what even she considers possible, she accepts the aid of an unlikely group of allies. Problem is, with opposing factions gunning for the one thing that might save them all, Vee must find a way to turn oppression and desperation into hope and determination—or risk failing all the children and the brother she left behind

An intriguing tale. A story that had me filled with so many emotions. THE SURRENDERED will keep you on edge of your seat and you will find it hard to put the novel down. As a reader you will be so engaged in Vee’s story, to the point that you will find yourself reading it till end, just to find out how it all ends for her. I know that’s how it was for me and there was even couple nights that I found myself reading late into night due to fact that I had to know how it end for all of them, especially Vee. How could I not? Even if Vee was a fictional character, she became real to me. I felt as if she became my friend. Plus everything that was happening in that novel, you can’t help but get hooked into it.

You know how some stories you come across character that becomes your favorite character through the entire book? Vee was that character for me. I loved her from the start till I reached the end of the book. Vee was dedicated, strong, brave, a fighter. What she did, what she went through in order to save her brother, Oliver and to protect her sister, Jane. Despite the danger that she had face, or the challenges she came across, did not stop her and she didn’t give up, not once. Vee had courage and so much love for her family. That’s how real family is supposed to be. The emotions that were displayed in this book were so vivid that I found myself being able to feel all the emotions that she felt. Causing for everything else to become much more real to me.

Of course I loved the tension, the attraction that occurred between Vee and Catson. From moment that the two of them had met, I wondered how deep their feelings for one another actually were. Even though he did act bit harsh towards her in beginning, of course I didn’t blame him, considering what happened to his family. Once they got past that, I loved how the two of them looked out for one another. Anyone could tell that there was some spark, a connection between the two of them. The action, the suspense in this novel was never-ending and one of things that made it so interesting because there was always something happening. Every single page.

A great novel for any YA Dystopian fans.
