Subversive by Anela Deen
In a not so distant future, an unprepared humanity barely managed to repel the Locusts when they invaded Earth. But the long war left its mark on mankind and the Establishment was founded to ensure it would never come so close to destruction from an alien force again. Now, decades later, the world is run by this single governing entity. Loyalty is rewarded. Disloyalty is met with corrective action.
As an inquisitor for the past twenty years, Gemson used torture and interrogation to root out subversives. He’d worked hard to earn his cold, hard reputation. Now he finds himself on the subject’s side of the interrogation table. Loyalty? Some bonds transcend the laws of state.
I went into this book blind. I had agreed to read it a while back (I am so behind on my reading and reviews!) and, being that I read so many review requests, I couldn't remember what this one was about at all. I decided to jump right in and read it without reading about it first and I loved it that way!
I'm not sure what I was expecting from this book but I do know that it wasn't what I was expecting. I really enjoyed it though! Subversive is actually more of a short story, 24 pages, but they were 24 great pages! I absolutely wasn't ready for it to end.
This is a very action packed, exciting book. I really think that my only complaint is that it was so short! I felt more like a chapter from a book and I didn't want to be done reading it. I hope to read the next installments!
*Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
