Blog Tour & Giveaway! Violet Storm by Anna Soliveres

Several hundred years into the future, The Cleansing, known to some as the End of Days, forced the government to create Arks to shelter its people. When Earth became habitable again, new territories rose up from the ashes: Agria, the City of Light, and the Outer Boundaries. For a while, they lived in peace.

A brilliant surgeon known for his invention of Modi’s—the only cure for the deadly disease, vaincre—has gone rogue with his experiments, and the Monarchy is desperate to shut him down. That’s where Aeva Storm comes in, a champion athlete with an ego to match. Aeva is the surgeon’s secret weapon against the Monarchy. And they’ll never know what hit them. After reconstructing her body to become a Modi unlike any he’s ever created, Aeva is forced into a fight against all odds. She’ll have to break loyalties, hurt family, and turn her back on newly awakened love. Thousands of lives hang in the balance in a battle that will set forth a new era.

Join Aeva on her quest to see whether she’s got what it takes to go up against the most powerful humans ever created.

Rating: 4/5
When I began this book, I was taken with Aeva’s strong character traits. I couldn’t help admiring her strength—both physically and mentally. She’s a renowned athlete in a brutal sport, which I found atypical, yet it perfectly suits her character.

Though this book seems more dystopian than sci-fi to me, I was immediately drawn into the world Ann Soliveres created, which vaguely resembled the poor districts and Capitol region in The Hunger Games. But that’s where the similarities end.

With solid character development, a story that moves quickly, and twists and turns along the way, this is a solid first novel for Anna Soliveres. I look forward to reading more of her work.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
