Product description

Toe the line between rule-following and rule-breaking in this tense and twisted start to a smart and sexy dystopian trilogy. Vi knows the Rule: Girls don t walk with boys, and they never even "think "about kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi s future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself. But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they re set on convincing Vi to become one of them .starting by brainwashing Zenn. Vi can t leave Zenn in the Thinkers hands, but she s wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous everything Zenn s not. Vi can t quite trust Jag and can t quite resist him, but she also can t give up on Zenn. This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play.

By Clean Teen Fiction 06 Nov 2012 5

Oh wow this book was wonderful!!! I loved it and can't wait to get my hands on Surrender (book 2).

The premise to Possession reminded me of Matched by Ally Condie. It turned out that Possession was very different from Matched, the similarity was the dystopian world which a lot of books have these days.

Violet, Vi for short, was an amazing character, very strong and defiant. At first it was hard to relate to her desire for rule breaking because I'm the opposite of a rule breaker, but as the story went along I understood her more and loved her for her "bad" ways. Jag was funny, confident, and a fellow rule breaker. They made a great team.

There were twists and turns throughout that made me scream and squeal. You know it's a great read when your emotions are front and center, ready to laugh or yell. The ending was maddening! I'm so glad the 2nd book is already out so I don't have to wait to see what happens next. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a great romance with an exciting plot in a dystopian world.
