Monsters Born and Made

We rated this book:


Koral Hunter hunts maristags for the Glory Race, an event reserved for the upper-class Landers that rule the island. But when she loses the last maristag of the season and her family falls into even more debt, she is forced to enter the race to pay for her ailing sister’s medicine. Even though she’s up against competitors who have been training their whole lives, Koral is certain that because she grew up raising the maristags, she just might be able to win. But when someone tries to sabotage her plans to win and it seems that the people whose approval she’s trying to win are working against her, Koral realizes she just might be in over her head…

I liked this book because it was smooth and entertaining, even though it dragged a little at times. It had a good plot and story (similar to The Hunger Games), but I feel that most of the supporting characters weren’t very well developed, and the rebel group, Freedom Ark, was a faceless group without sufficient background. Overall I liked the story though, and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cool, wild read!
