After the Fear This book was utterly incredible I am a huge fan of strong heroines and I loved how Sola was always a mentally strong character but definitely came into her own as the book progressed I had to stop reading at certain parts and just process how awesome Sola was becoming One thing I cannot stand in YA fiction is where two characters are randomly thrown together and the reader is expected to believe they have fallen in love but After the Fear was nothing like that The romance was so believable This book was utterly incredible I am a huge fan of strong heroines and I loved how

so believable Sola and Dylan spent plently of time together and actually enjoyed each others company Its not only the main characters who are incredible either I found myself hating the villainthan I have ever hated a book character I find myself becoming angry just thinking about her Roseanne Rivers has pefectly blended action and romance to create an incredible and believable read I cannot wait to readof her work 4.5 STARS After the Fear is the story of Sola, a lonely, pushover of a girl who is tortured by the ultimate mean girl Coral Out of hatred and jealousy, Coral arranges for Sola to be forced into try outs to be a Demonstrator, which is pretty much a Dystopian gladiator Demonstrators are working to pay back the serious debt owed to other countries by selling out tickets for

of combat, as well as the social battle played out on Debtbook Sola shows compassion throughout her training and tour to her competitors, friends and enemies yet she also transforms into this fierce killer The primary struggle for Sola is justifying her role as a demonstrator with the compassionate person she really is I m not going to lie, when I first read the premise for After the Fear I was concerned that it would be a huge Hunger Games rip off As I read the first few chapters, I wasn t really sure if I would like Sola and I wasn t buying the romantic connection with Dylan at first What I did really like about Sola is the relationships and attachments she forms with the other characters, even the despicable ones The dynamic between Sola and Coral is frustratingly contemptuous and the strange affection between Sola and Shepherd Fines is puzzling and unique Sola and Dylan s romantic relationship was not on the forefront of the story for me, but I still like them as a couple A warning to the faint of heartthis book is VIOLENT and GRUESOME however the plot was fast paced and the story was entertaining Although Sola may not be an extraordinary heroine, she is worthy of 4.5 stars This book hooked me from the very beginning The Debtbook was fascinating At first I figured it was some kind of futuristic Facebook, and I guess in a way, it is, but instead of updating and checking in because they want to, users do so because they must, and it seems if they want to stay safe, they will They ll also attend as many Demonstrations as possible This confused me until it was

was some kind of futuristic Facebook, and I guess in a way, it is, but instead of updating and checking in because they want to, users do so because they must, and it seems if they want to stay safe, they will They ll also attend as many Demonstrations as possible This confused me until it was explained that their country the former UK was very deeply in debt, and these Demonstrations were a way of raising money to pay back the debt And apparently every single citizen was responsible for paying back a certain portion of the countries debt Exactly what the Demonstrations were was unclear to me until Sola was forced to audition That s when it becomes very obvious that the government is not.very nice I enjoyed the audition and the subsequent Demonstrations Sola participated in during her tour It reminded me of The Hunger Games, except Sola actually actively killed, instead of doing her best not to, like Katniss did I must say, I liked that Yes, it was violent, but apparently, her society thrives on this particular violence, and they don t care how young the participants are Dylan, who is, I believe, 20, started when he was just 9 I don t want to reveal too many plot details, so I won t go into great detail about the book I will say, I enjoyed every aspect, from Sola s typical life in the beginning, to her training and life as a Demonstrator The only thing I didn t like was Shepard Fines Dude was just creepy Yes, it was integral to the plot, but damn, I just wanted Sola to slit his throat or something Good job giving the readers an antagonist to just flat out hate I would have liked fordetails on the debt and the government s efforts to repay it.I have no idea if a sequel is planned, but I m hoping for one I would definitely read it 4.25 stars If you re looking for a story about heroes and battles, about starcrossed lovers and evil villains, you re in the right place But if you re looking for a story about a girl who unwittingly inspired a revolution The Hunger Games , a story about a girl who sought the truth no matter what it cost her Divergent or a girl who started a war and ended up brokering peace Horde , you re in the wrong place Because a person doesn t have to save the world to be a hero Sometimes, just 4.25 stars If you re looking for a story about heroes and battles, about starcrossed lovers and evil villains, you re in the right place But if you re looking for a story about a girl who unwittingly inspired a revolution The Hunger Games , a story about a girl who sought the truth no matter what it cost her Divergent or a girl who started a war and ended up brokering peace Horde , you re in the wrong place Because a person doesn t have to save the world to be a hero Sometimes, just changing the lives of those around you make you a hero The PlotFor a book that has all the hallmark characteristics of a YA dystopian novel, After the Fear is refreshingly unique and unpredictable Set in a futuristic United Kingdom ravaged by debt, where religion, books, movies and anything that might inspire the people to revolt is banned and where each city holds demonstrations to raise money to pay back its debt.There are two ways to end up in a demonstration 1 You re chosen to help pay the Debt This means you re placed in a team in a fight to the death tryouts If your team wins, the remaining members get to train to become demonstrators 2 You re convicted of a crime and have to face a Demonstrator in a fight to the death.Sola is a schoolgirl, the epitome of boring, ordinary and unpopular She is sent to the tryouts at the whim of her jealous ex best friend Though she survives, Sola finds out that killing a person in the tryouts is only the first of many trials.Sola has to contend with the blood of innocent people on her hands, defending herself and her friends against an old rival, faking a relationship with a man who has the ability to save her life or to end it, and fencing the pitfalls of loving someone she will never get to be with view spoiler I want to be disappointed that Rivers doesn t tackle the Debt system indepth, or that Sola gives up on trying to change the system without even trying But I can t Because not every book has to be like Hunger Games, where one person changes the world The lesson of the book is to do what you can, no matter how small Make your own choices, help those around you Survive until you can make a difference I m also kind of disappointed that there isn t a second book It s a clean ending,or less, but I would really love to see where Sola and Dylan end up hide spoiler Sola Sola is one of my favourite dystopian heroines in recent reads Not because she s beautiful, she has kick ass fighting skills which she does or a shining personality her mood swings are terrible but because she s flawed and imperfect and I can relate to her.She s selfish and does whatever it takes to survive She s hopeless at relationships, both real and fake, but she loves fiercely She s pretty self absorbed, ignorant even when it comes to her friends lives, but she will defend them even if it means sacrificing what she wants.DylanI know Sola complained a lot about Dylan telling her what to do but he is her trainer, and he s DYLAN If Dylan Casey told me to climb Mount Everest with a blindfold on, I d do it in a heartbeat Hell, if he told me to do it STARKERS, I d still do it.Dylan is like the anti love interest He s not roguishly handsome, suave or charming He s stoic, serious and it s impossible to tell what he s thinking ever but when he gets in one of his playful moods he has me eating out of the palm of his fictitious hand.Best of all, he isn t charming In fact, he s awkward, tactless and always says the wrong thing around Sola As Sola once saidThis second is why I love Dylan His voice is so mesmerising, and he s so charming when he tries hard But as soon as he lets his guard slip, he puts his foot in it totally and completely And that s why I love Dylan too.The WritingFor a debut book, After The Fear read like a dystopian reader s dream Rivers writing flows like she s been writing for years It s descriptive, engaging but above all else, it s INVOLVING She makes me feel like I m there, like this is real Which means that the lead up to Sola s demonstration had my heart in my throat, my lungs hyperventilating and finally, my heart squeezing painfully for Sola and Dylan.I highly, highly, highly recommend dystopian romance fans add this book to their shelf You will NOT be disappointed I loved this book, it s a real page turner The characters are so real and engaging, I was rooting for the heroine Sola from the first page, and the romance element is beautifully developed The world the author paints is very unique and different to other dystopian novels I highly recommend this book for all young adult fiction dystopian novel fans, and also for anyone just looking for great book to read. In order to pay off the debt that the UK owes to other countries people are chosen to fight in arenas, first each other in a selection process, then criminals in every city, and finally in a demonstration match The money raised from selling tickets to these events goes towards paying off the debt Of course, in true dystopian YA fashion, things are not always as they seem.The debt angle grabbed my attention, the characters are interesting, and we get power plays The fighting to the death in a In order to pay off the debt that the UK owes to other countries people are chosen to fight in arenas, first each other in a selection process, then criminals in every city, and finally in a demonstration match The money raised from selling tickets to these events goes towards paying off the debt Of course, in true dystopian YA fashion, things are not always as they seem.The debt angle grabbed my attention, the characters are interesting, and we get power plays The fighting to the death in an arena is very Hunger Games, butRoman gladiators fighting for sport, if those gladiators included women and children However, the arena angle means that I can t help but compare this to The Hunger Games and it doesn t measure up The characters aren t as engaging, we barely get a look at what life is like for the average person before our protagonist is thrown into an arena, and it sometimes seemed a bit too easy, or at least I wasn t on the edge of my seat It s a shame, because it IS an enjoyable read I just wanted world building,atmosphere,tension Loved this book It was full of action and drama The premise was a lot like The Hunger Games with having to fight to the death but it had its own twists Sola is a great character who retains her humanity even though she has to fight so many people to the death just to survive herself. Really loved this It s a bit like the hunger games which I also loved Only finished this today but I m looking forward to reading it again Hopefully there will be a sequal.
