In a world of blood, purity is king.
High above the ruins of America, Percenters enjoy a life of opulence and indulgence. Far different from those surviving the toxic ozone layer ravaging the Earth’s surface.
On the eve of what is every sixteen-year-old Percenters transition to adulthood, Jena learns about the oppression of Barrens, people without superhuman powers who live below the Sovereign Sky Cities - the only world she has ever known.
Together with some unlikely allies and a bunch of strangers, some with extraordinary powers that defy natural law, Jena must undo what her ancestors architected years ago... a world where humans without powers are enslaved to those with.
Jena, without really choosing, is humanity’s last hope. But the Cleansing Coalition, a secret sect of the Sovereign Sky Cities Counsel, will stop at nothing to keep their status quo, even if that means killing Jena and everyone she loves.
I read the first 16 chapters of this book in one sitting... I found the story line very intriguing. I am excited to see where it leads. I am particularly curious about Jena and what her overall powers would be, since she is part of the upper echelon of percenters. I am also looking forward to read how she will use these powers. Would she and Xavier be able to unite the percenters , Middlers and Barrens
A riveting story that is reminiscent of the times we live in today. Percenters, while maybe not with actual super human powers, exist in our lives every day and control the world we live in. This story is about breaking bloodlines to do what is right for everyone, not just the few at the top. Sound familiar?
This one is a page Turner. One of those books that you'll remember like it was a movie you watched. I was unable to put it down once I picked it up to read and I'm avidly in pursuit of the next book in the series.
Excellent book!! Definitely a good read for teens to adults.
It’s nice to read a book where the hero (this time a heroine!) comes from privilege and does something about injustices that she didn’t even know existed; even when she doesn’t completely understand what that will mean to her own life. We are all Jenavieve to someone, or could be!
I fell in love with Jena, the heroine, in Chapter 1. She’s a total warrior princess and doesn’t even know it yet. I can’t wait to see what she does next!
Percenters is the privileged love child of Hunger Games, Harry Potter and X-men. Jena, the heroine, comes from the top of society and is naive to everything else, merely as a by-product of her privilege. She stands for what is right, just and equal... not what is status quo. I can’t wait to see Jena’s character evolve in Book 2!!
Couldn't put it down...very interesting!
