Default 'The Gender Game' by Bella Forrest (Sa16+) [SPOILERS]

Welcome to The Book Seekers' Book of the Moment for January/February 2023!


If you don't know what Book of the Moment is, you can find more information about it here but, in a nutshell, it's a bi-monthly event, during which we all read the same book and then discuss it. The first month is focused on reading the book, the second is focused on discussing it. This thread is dedicated to the discussion of the book and there will be lots of SPOILERS!!!! You have been warned! If you want to talk about your reading progress in a spoiler-free environment, this thread is the place for that, and it is always open and active so you can read at your own pace. When you have finished the book and are ready to talk spoilers to your heart's content, you should post in this thread. You can post in this thread at any time during the two months, but the Official™ discussion won't take place until the start of the second month. Don't fret if you're reading the book after that date ― you can add to the discussion at any time!

The next two months, we will be focusing on reading The Gender Game by Bella Forrest. This is the first book in a SEVEN (yes, count 'em SEVEN) part book series about a dystopian future where two countries live side by side - one controlled by the men, and one controlled by the women.



AGE RATING: Sa16+
GENRE: Science Fiction
SUMMARY: (from Goodreads)


Quote:
A toxic river divides nineteen-year-old Violet Bates's world by gender.

Women rule the East. Men rule the West.

Welcome to the lands of Matrus and Patrus.

Ever since the disappearance of her beloved younger brother, Violet's life has been consumed by an anger she struggles to control. Already a prisoner to her own nation, now she has been sentenced to death for her crimes.

But one decision could save her life.

To enter the kingdom of Patrus, where men rule and women submit.

Everything about the patriarchy is dangerous for a rebellious girl like Violet. She cannot break the rules if she wishes to stay alive.

But abiding by rules has never been Violet's strong suit.

When she's thrust into more danger than she could have ever predicted, Violet is forced to sacrifice many things in the forbidden kingdom ... including forbidden love.

In a world divided by gender, only the strongest survive...

^The series is VERY good, and there's a spin off too! I'm going to be rereading it along with you guys because I need a refresher on it, this first book in particular in the series has some twists and turns I did NOT expect!

How is the book coming along, everyone? What are your first impressions of the characters and your thoughts on the whole Matrus/Patrus breakdown of this society?

I was very disappointed that this book is not on Libby for audio. I just reopened my audioable to grab it there and am starting it this week. I got behind on my last audio book, but am finishing today!
