If you like Dystopian, I recommend this I wouldn t be surprised if it turns into a major movie.I m a fan of Damanda s understated, sinister writing style There s no hyperbole or drama he just writes what s happens And what happens is extraordinary.Something has gone wrong in the world and parts of America are now governed by the Salvation State, an ultra devout, uber conservative set of rules for living in which indviduality is maligned as a threat Rebecca is a reverend s daughter, smart, sporty [...]

One Wild Ride A Badass, Feminist Page turnerFull disclosure I m not generally a fan of dystopian novels But Marcus Demanda s The Salvation State grabbed me from its bang up opening and kept me riveted to the last page There aren t many books that have tempted me to encase my Kindle in a Zip Lock baggie so I could read continue reading them in the bathtub, but that is exactly what I did today Rebecca and Daniel, The Salvation State s main characters, live in New America, a broken, dirty bombed ou [...]

The Salvation State by Marcus Damanda was one heck of a roller coaster ride It has everything one loves in a dystopian novel, but so much The world that he built was unlike anything I had ever read before Usually in dystopian novels, there was some disaster or virus that caused the creation of the new world In The Salvation State it is humanity and religion that cause a new, evil world to emerge Being a person that does not believe in organized religion, I found myself angry during certain part [...]

There are very few times when I am not reading at least one book in my life Recently I have spent my time reading books over again while waiting for something new to catch my attention Even with numerous books available, I hadn t found anything I really wanted to read and not put down in many months Yesterday, however, I started reading The Salvation State by Marcus Damanda and was drawn into a future world that refused to let me go until I finished Rebecca and Daniel are both very well written [...]

How do you like your dystopian novels Gritty Tense Entirely plausible If you answered yes , then I suspect that this book ought to be on your list of books to read.Told in the no nonsense style which I have come to expect from this author, this is a story of restrained, quiet rebellion playing counterpoint to the loud, brash, hypocritical approach of the so called christian leaders.The matter of fact narrative, the plucky heroine whom I defy you not to root for , and the sometimes unexpected all [...]

The intense first chapter and disturbing dystopian setting had me intrigued from the start In a place where the church is the state, politics are corrupt and people are cruel Two teenagers from varying backgrounds, Rebecca and Daniel, get caught up in the power play of this society I eagerly flipped the pages to see how they would survive all their conflicts in New America Readers will find themselves cheering them on in this high stakes plot with amazing action and characterization I have read [...]

The best book by far from this author, it s a book that when you finish, you ll be wanting A disturbing premise eloquently brought to life, imagine if radicalism took over Christianity and distorted it beyond recognition A true horror story You can t help but cheer for the main characters Futuristic, drama, dystopian, and rolled into one This one would be a great movie Don t make us wait too long for the next one.

With the main characters in this book being teenagers, it would be quite easy to overlook this book as being just another book in a dystopian YA series, but that would be underestimating the scope of it This book does not go into much detail of the nature and extent of the disaster that has resulted in the usa having been rebuilt in a fairly fascist and extremely conservative christian image, the focus is about building a picture of the current state of that country rather than what caused it t [...]

My review is for the audiobook format What would life be like in a country where religion is a dictatorship Where individual freedom is replaced with a strict set of rules that are enforced by infallible authoritarian leaders Where your lifestyle is defined and directed by the local church which, by the way, you are required to attend Where defiance of any kind lands you in re education camps, gulag type prisons, or a six foot deep hole The Salvation State is a shocking reminder of the fragility [...]

Some of the best dystopian fiction I ve read in awhileI read a LOT, and the majority of what I read is dystopian fiction in one form or another A lot of the newer books in this genre tend to become predictable, but Salvation State is absolutely not like that The story is like The Handmaid s Tale meets Divergent, with a little bit of The Darkest Minds The writing is fantastic and I love the uniqueness of the story It only took about five pages before I was totally hooked and couldn t put it down [...]

Oh Wow I m not that big on stories with a religious twist honestly it makes me want to roll my eyes a bit but it didn t take long before I fell in love with the story and the characters and then it didn t matter to me any The Salvation State is definitely a pageturner or what ever the name is for it when you listen to it as an audiobook and I highly recommend it to everyone Btw Jessica McEvoy does an amazing job reading the audiobook Do yourself a favor and give it a listen

This book drew me in from the first page and kept me engaged throughout Marcus Damanda certainly does know how to weave in some wickedness throughout his characters even the good ones and it scares me that there really are people like DC out there I can t even fathom the evil that is Mrs Black.I m not a fan of cliffhanger endings, but this one ended just right, and with a promise for Anxiously awaiting the sequel.March 17 amwaiting

First of all, it s rare for me to give a book 5 stars I can only remember giving five stars to a couple series JRR Tolkien s The Hobbit The Lord Of The Rings and Rothfuss The Name Of The Wind.That being said, Marcus Damanda s Salvation State Book 1 easily rates 4 1 2 stars and is one of the best dystopian futures I ve ever read If the right people get word of this story, we should see this as a movie Mark my word.After reading the prologue, I could not put this book down At first I thought this [...]

The Salvation State is a well written dystopian story that teens and adults of all ages will enjoy If you enjoyed reading The Hunger Games or Divergent, you ll enjoy this story When I came across this book, I didn t know it was part of a trilogy and when I got to the final page, I was concerned that this was the end and I was desperate to know of the story Luckily, another reviewer mentioned the trilogy I definitely look forward to seeing how this story is going to unfold, to see Rebecca and Da [...]
