In this book, The Seven Stages War leaves most of the planet a charred wasteland where the people of the world live in regions and the future belongs to the chosen few of the next generation who must rebuild it. Once teens graduate, a select few are chosen to go to “The Testing”, a series of different tests to determine the next leaders of the country, with one catch- if you fail the testing, you die.The main character is Cia Vale, who is honored to be selected for the testing, but soon finds out that the testing is more than she bargained for.
My opinion: I really liked this book, it has action, suspense, and is impossible to stop reading until you finish it. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes sci-fi, action or dystopian books. I would rate it 5 stars. This book is sort of in the style of “The Hunger Games” so if you liked “The Hunger Games” you should definitely read “The Testing”.
