I am really gutted to give this 2 stars. I had such high expectations after reading the reviews so I took the plunge and purchased Article 5 over the countless other books currently in the dystopian genre.

It started off really promising, I love that ember was alive pre and post war allowing her to compare, I love the new control procedures as it's something that i could imagine not too far from the truth if happened today, and I love the mom brining in contraband and having a disregard for the rules.

I even loved the idea of the reform school, and then it all started to unravel.

The writing is not bad, however slow and it lacks the excitement and fear that I usually feel in dystopian novels.

My main problem is Ember, for someone who is described as independent and able to take care of her and her mother when they have nothing, as well as someone who saw life before the war; she just seems so stupid, and whiny.

She tries to portray herself as moral and someone who doesn't want to hurt people however is perfectly happy to blackmail someone (knowing he would be killed) but then is disgusted with chase just because he does it with his own hands. (In my book hers is worse).

I really tried to like it, personally I do not agree with those who say if you like divergent then read this as I feel they are very different and so are the main protagonists.

Article 5 is another brilliant addition to the dystopian genre. I couldn't put it down! It has an amazing plot and extraordinary characters! If you enjoyed Divergent or Eve then I think this one is the one for you!

Ember Miller lead an ordinary life. Until her mother was arrest for breaking Article 5 of the Moral Statutes. To make matters worse, one of the officers who arrested her mother was Chase Jennings. The only boy Ember has ever loved and cared for, but he isn't like he used to be. He's changed. And Ember doesn't know what to do to bring him back.

I really enjoyed Ember's voice. I didn't mind listening to her problems and worries. She is a very strong and courageous character who, in many ways, reminded me of Tris from Divergent. I loved reading about her relationship with Chase, from start to finish that boy had me swooning! Handsome, confident, clever, have I mentioned the fact that he is so handsome?

The book was action packed and full of exciting twists! It was slightly predictable at times but apart from that, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Kristen Miller has delivered a book that will appeal to many fans of young-adult fiction. I can't wait to find out what she has got installed for us next!

Overall, Article 5 is a fun and daring book that will leave you anxiously awaiting for it's sequel.

Last week I received in the post the third book in the Article 5 series (Called Three) and because it has been so long since I had finished reading the second book (Breaking Point) I made the decision to go back and read the first in the series – Article 5.

This book had first appeared on my radar as I had started reading a lot of Young Adult novels of the dystopian persuasion and Amazon kept recommending it to me.

Like a lot of books of this genre this is set in the near future after a catastrophic event/s has shattered everyday life.

The main character is Ember who is 17 and lives with her Mother in what was the United States, after a series of events the big cities have been bombed and a new government has taken over and with this new government comes a new set of rules or articles and these are governed by the Federal Bureau of Reformation.

These articles are set out with what seems to be extreme moral family values in mind and as Ember lives with just her mother they are in direct violation of one of the Articles.

Sorry I am trying to write this with spoiling any of it for you, anyway i digress, because of Ember’s mothers breaking one of the rules/articles Ember is taken away to a boarding school and during the lead up to this she comes in to the path of her childhood love Chase (who sounds quite hot) but unfortunately he works for the bureau as a soldier.

The story continues with some of the horrors of the boarding school and the people who live there but luckily with a little help Ember manages to escape.

The book from there on deals with Ember’s struggle to stay hidden away from the cruel bureau.

I've read a lot of YA books and this is definitely one which I loved.
Only thing that I found slightly unbelievable was how they managed to escape different places while escaping is seemingly unheard of.
But over all a book a could not put down and had my heart beating faster.
You get a real feel for the characters and easies you into this world really smoothly.

This is going to be a slightly odd review because whilst I enjoyed Article 5 it didn't blow me away as much as the second book, Breaking Point, so my five stars are for the story so far. This is quite unusual in a trilogy, normally you find book one develops the characters and gives an intro into their world, book three gives the conclusion, the 'happily ever after' if you like, while the most you can hope for in book two is some twist or cliffhanger. Not so, Breaking Point held so many surprises I can't see how Three (that's what its called) will top it.
firstly lose any preconceived ideas you may have from other books of this genre about a dystopian future. Forget The Hunger Games and the Pure trilogy, because while they were good reads that isn't going to happen, instead imagine a future United States so torn by war the the Bill of Rights is replaced by the Moral Statute. One family under God, traditional values are being embraced and whole families with mother and father only recognised as valid citizens. This stuff is disturbing, THIS could happen.
Our heroine in this Ember Miller is a teenage girl brought up by a single working mum and conceived out of wedlock. their very existence in a world where nail varnish and magazines are contraband good, goes against the Moral statute.
Ember's life changes with her mothers arrest and her introduction into the brutal reform school.
The imagination in this is incredible, the diverse and vividly described characters, the bombed cities, the fear, all of this will have you on the edge of seat and re reading entire sections in disbelief. thoroughly enjoyable !
