Reviews: Undesirable and Undefinable, The Seven Years Gone Series Books 1 & 2 by Liz Iavorschi-Braun

Undesirable, Seven Years Gone #1.

image~Blurb~

Five generations after world leaders engineer a virus to decimate the population and keep it under control, life continues as normal for those living in The Society. They are divided into classes and go about their lives because it is all they know. The genetically fortunate become rulers, while those labeled undesirable are never seen again. Torn between her obligation to The Society that she was raised in and a desire to choose her own fate, Ginger takes a chance and risks it all to cross a vast wilderness alone for a chance to be free.

~My Review~

Ginger lives with her parents in the Society, she is approaching her sixteenth birthday and knows that her selection test is looming. Everyone in the Society has to undergo a selection test to determine which section of the community they will spend their adult life.

Ginger is convinced that she will be classified as an Undesirable, and she makes a decision that will have an impact on both her and her family. The question is does she make the right decision?

Undesirable is a great starting point for this series. It’s pace is steady and I think that is because it is so informative. Ginger gives us a lot of information which is obviously important to help us understand just what she is facing and experiencing.

After becoming more familiar with the style of this author’s writing I was pulled into the story alongside Ginger. The author has done a fantastic job at making me understand just how difficult dangerous Ginger’s journey really is.

Ginger is a strong female character and she has some serious determination. How she found the strength to get up and keep going baffled me, I don’t know if it call it courage and guts or just sheer stubbornness not to be beaten! Whichever it is good her for not giving up.

Dystopian is a genre that I usually struggle to read, that said I have enjoyed reading this book and I’m looking forward to seeing where the author takes this in the next books. Which luckily for me I’ve already read 😉

Read on for my thoughts on book #2…

Undefinable, Seven Years Gone Book #2.

~Blurb~image

The Choices we make define us, but they have consequences. Ginger must come to grips with the ramifications of her actions, even as she comes into her own.
While war looms on the horizon, Ginger learns that freedom, family and love are worth fighting for, regardless of the costs.
Author Liz Iavorschi-Braun’s much-anticipated second book of the Seven Years Gone series is a gripping story you won’t want to put down.

~My Review~

Undefinable picks up right where Undesirable left off. We re-join Ginger on her journey through the unknown but now she’s in Harrison with Rane and Myra.

Ginger continues to grow and show more and more strength and determination. We see her develop into a young woman who is more mature than she should be considering her age. The more situations that Ginger is forced to face, the more she holds her head up and face both the challenges and her fears head on!

All the supporting characters are well thought up and are life like. They may only be the supporting characters but they have their own lives, they also interact and intertwine with Ginger, Rane and Myra very well.

The overall plot for this book isn’t a straightforward beginning, middle and end, it has so much more to it. There are twists and unexpected events that occur, and these help to keep a firm hold of the readers attention.

After reading both books in this series so far one thing I have learned is that Liz has a fantastic knack for building a world that is clear and so well thought out it made me feel like I was there and if I reached out I would be able to touch it.

I have enjoyed reading this series so far and I’m looking forward to reading book #3 to see what else is in store for Ginger.

Secrets are supposed to be kept hidden; buried deep down inside where no one can discover them.
Only some secrets have a way of destroying you.
That perfect reflection cracks, slowly revealing everything you’ve kept locked away; shattering the image you’ve created into tiny pieces.
But what happens when the web you’ve weaved starts to unravel and escaping the wreckage isn’t an option anymore?
Do you reveal the dark mystery that has been surrounding you and pull the people you love into the fray?
Or is your only choice the one that will lead to the end of life as you know it?

⭐📦 ABOUT THE AUTHORS 📦⭐

 

⭐Abigail Davies⭐
 
Abigail Davies grew up with a passion for words, storytelling, maths, and anything pink. Dreaming up characters—quite literally—and talking to them out loud is a daily occurrence for her. She finds it fascinating how a whole world can be built with words alone, and how everyone reads and interprets a story differently. Now following her dreams of writing, Abigail has found the passion that she always knew was there. When she’s not writing: she’s a mother to two daughters who she encourages to use their imagination as she believes that it’s a magical thing, or getting lost in a good book. If she’s doing neither of those things, you can be sure she’s surfing the web buying new makeup, clothes, or binge watching another show as she becomes one with her sofa.

 

⭐Danielle Dickson⭐
 
Danielle Dickson has always dreamed about writing a book. With many stories to tell, she finally pulled her finger out one morning when one story screamed at her louder than the rest. When Danielle’s not writing, she can be found devouring the words of other people’s worlds, painting people’s faces with makeup, or feeding her unhealthy obsession of pink iced doughnuts—seriously, she’s obsessed. A self-confessed weirdo and horror movie fanatic, there’s never a dull moment in her clumsy, fun-filled life. She gets lost in the magic a book immerses you in and hopes to capture that magic for her readers.

~Excerpt~

Something felt off as I opened my eyes. I was lying, fully clothed, on top of the duvet but there was no warmth. There was no body curled in behind me, no warm breath on my neck, and no strong arms wrapped around me. His absence was immediately felt.

“Jackson,” I called out as I sat up.

There was no reply and I stared towards the bathroom, listening for sounds of the shower running. Perhaps he hadn’t heard me. I climbed from the bed and made my way to the living room. The apartment felt empty, and without needing to look any further, I knew he had left.

I made my way to the kitchen and set the kettle to boil, placed two teaspoons of tea in a pot, and waited for the water. I hated the silence of my empty apartment. I hated more that Jack was gone. It wouldn’t be the first time he’d left before I’d woken, he would return with pastries and coffee, but that morning my gut was telling me something was wrong. I reached for my phone, still charging on the countertop, and brought up his number. I dialled. The call went straight to voicemail and I left a message.

“Jack, I’m making tea, can you call me?”

When my tea was brewed, I poured a cupful and sat on the sofa. I hated the apartment; I hated the circumstances that had me sitting on my own. I hated more that I was left to deal with its sale alone.

I tried not to think, I wouldn’t look at the mantel above the gas fire that housed photographs and memories. I stared at my phone, waiting for a call or a text message. An hour passed and I began to get anxious.

Jack, can you call me, please? I’m worried about you.

I looked at the text I’d sent waiting for a reply; nothing came. I pulled a comforter from the back of the sofa and wrapped myself up in it. I missed his arms around me; I missed the warmth of his body and the sigh he gave every time he wrapped me in his arms.

Jackson had been my constant, the friend I was in love with, not that I had ever told him that. For the past six months, he’d comforted me, listened to my anguish and the anger that spewed from me. He’d been here day and night, sleeping next to me.
