Premonition (The Division #1)
Pub Date 19 Jul 2017
My Rating: 5 / 5
I loved every minute of this book. It was a perfect balance of action, unexpected twists, and a little bit of teenage romance. If you enjoy a good government secret agency novel, some fantasy, sci-fi and even YA, I recommend this book for you.
When Riley heads off to boarding school for a summer work-study program, she knows it’ll be demanding. What she doesn’t expect? To be thrust into an intense physical training program described as special, exclusive and worst of all–top-secret. She signed up for tuition assistance, not to be held in a secret government facility for boot camp…
Welcome to The Division, the government agency that’s so classified, most United States senators have never heard of it.
The Division wants Riley bad, but she can’t figure out why. Skeptical of what she’s being told, Riley’s determined to uncover the truth. Boot camp is intense, physically and mentally draining. The upside? One of her new teammates is the cutest boy ever. Watching Finn hit the gym wearing a tank top doesn’t suck–although sometimes his brooding attitude does. But when training forces Riley to confront her tragic past, even Finn’s big biceps aren’t enough to make her want to stay…
Beware: The Division isn’t something you just walk away from. You better run.
Riley realizes her capabilities and strengths are greater than she’d ever imagined. But she also learns she wasn’t just chosen for this special program…
She was made for it.
I read this book faster than I expected. It is fast paced and keeps you intrigued throughout, always willing you to read one more page, and we all know how one more page turns into one more chapter.
I was not sure what to expect, I did not expect to love this book as much as I did. It has been a while since I have not wanted to put a book down. Following Riley’s journey was an exciting adventure. I connected with her as a character on a personal level, and for me that is always a sign of a good read. She is strong, but not flawless, making her a realistic and relatable character. I find Finn endearing. Although most of the characters have a less pleasant introduction, they do end up growing on you.
I love how Riley always asks questions. As Riley learns more about herself and her past, the reader learns alongside her. She questions authority, which is a sure sign of a strong character.
Its difficult not to give too much away, so all I can say is that this book was exciting, fun and those unexpected twists I mentioned earlier will definitely keep you intrigued.
I cant wait to go out and get the next book. The sequels, Intuition (The Division Series Book 2) is already available, and the third book is expected to be published in January 2018.
I was given an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
