BOOK REVIEW: Untamed (Untamed #1) by Madeline Dyer


BLURB:


As one of the last Untamed humans left in the world, Seven’s life has always been controlled by tight rules. Stay away from the Enhanced. Don’t question your leader. And, most importantly, never switch sides--because once you’re Enhanced there’s no going back. Even if you have become the perfect human being.

But after a disastrous raid on an Enhanced city, Seven soon finds herself in her enemy’s power. Realizing it’s only a matter of time before she too develops a taste for the chemical augmenters responsible for the erosion of humanity, Seven knows she must act quickly if she’s to escape and save her family from the same fate.

Yet, as one of the most powerful Seers that the Untamed and Enhanced have ever known, Seven quickly discovers that she alone holds the key to the survival of only one race. But things aren’t clear-cut anymore, and with Seven now questioning the very beliefs she was raised on, she knows she has an important choice to make. One that has two very different outcomes.

Seven must choose wisely whose side she joins, for the War of Humanity is underway, and Death never takes kindly to traitors.


REVIEW BY: Angel, age 13 years, 4 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book was a great adventure! It was fascinating, strange, brilliant and "untamed"!

This book is about a 17 year old girl named Seven. It is all about staying Untamed and surviving without turning into an "Enhanced" one. However, Seven gets converted into an Enhanced one, but the Untamed get her back. They know though that if you get converted, that you will never be the same again. Seven is forgiven by the Gods and she becomes a Seer, but she has to pick between an Enhanced one or being Untamed. 

My favorite character is Three because he is a great brother to Seven. 

My favorite part is when Corin asks Seven if she likes the blouse he is holding because it is so funny to read and imagine! 

This book was amazing with tons of decisions being made throughout that can affect everyone involved. This book was a great read! 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 and up.
