Well, this was disappointing. I wanted to love this, I really did. But it's just very lackluster and overall I would suggest skipping this one. I like Syd, and kudos to the author for an LGBT character whose sexual orientation isn't the only part of his personality. Syd was cool, very likable. As ...

What can I say about this book that won't make me sound like an obsessed fangirl? ... Nothing because I REALLY loved this book! It was so engaging and enticing and all the -ings! I loved this world that London created and I love the premise of the entire book. I even loved all of the characters!...

This book follows two lead characters, Syd and Knox. Knox is a spoiled rich kid who grew up having everything a boy could want except for love. Syd is a poor kid who, because he was an orphan and had to go through the foster care system, and then go to get his biofeed implanted, and then go to sch...

The picture of the future something like the biopatches really amazes me. A really unique kind of story. Action is action. Fun is fun. Heartbreak is heartbreak. All sorts of emotion, i felt it. It's a story where reality meets future.I'm so proud of Syd ☺

Just when I've been about to turn my back on dystopians this book comes along and manages to rekindle my love for the genre. With wonderfully nuanced characters and crazy plot twists I found myself engrossed in a world where the rich (Patrons) have everything and the poor are burdened with debt. E...

I had heard a lot about this book and while yes it is a good book and i would recommend it I was not completely wowed by it. I found a few things to be a bit predictable. I am however curious about Guardian but I am not dying to read it.

These are the first two books in London's Proxy series. Proxy was released in 2013, while Guardian recently came out on May 29, 2014. I think the Proxy series is a very strong dystopian, futuristic series. It is set in a world where rich people are 'patrons' and poor people are 'proxies.' The pro...

"Even a perfect machine wasn't built to go this fast." Knox is from a wealthy family. A Patron, he gets all the latest and coolest stuff, including a Proxy that pays for all his punishments - including death for murder. Syd is his Proxy and his life is not his own. They have more in common th...

This was a disappointment. The basic idea for the book was decent, but the execution was lacking—to put it mildly. There are various technical issues, like the unnecessary POV shifts, the paper-thin characterisation, the shallow, dull storyline, or the obvious lack of proper content editing—to just ...

I sat down with this about 6 last night and didn't leave the couch until I was done. The pace of this is crazy good, there just wasn't any opportunity for me to put it down. Even thought I didn't read it until 2014, definitely one of my YA faves of 2013.
