If you think this dark view of future earth is impossible, think again. I think the taking down of the World Trade Center in New York is proof that anything can happen at any time. If you think the human race has evolved past the barbaric mentality of ancient Rome, think again.
Blood Tournament is the adult version of the Hunger Games; not an idealistic view of the human race where players don’t really want to hurt each other, but the real version of the human race in the real world. It is a glimpse into how the human race responds to having total and complete power over those less fortunate.
Blood Tournament is a thrilling page turner that asks the big questions: would you kill another human being to save your own life? So you are an idealist and you said “no.” Then, would you kill another human being to save the one person in the world who means more to you than life itself.
Is it that much of a stretch to imagine the dystopian world of Blood Tournament? You decide. . Enter the Blood Tournament and find out who you really are. Highly recommended reading.
Mr. Benson builds a rich dystopian world that anyone would be afraid to live in. The story is filled with breathtaking action, and intense relationships and seemingly insurmountable challenges that will keep you riveted.
I'll be honest, I was a bit doubtful of the comparisons to the Hunger Games that seemed to come up over and over. And I was correct in that respect. Beyond the fight to the death style of tournament that is the central focus of the story and the age of the main characters, I didn't find too much in common with the popular series. And that was a GOOD thing.
The world of the 2018 Series is a dystopian hell where the New Government owns the people in a disturbingly realistic system of life and death. There is a tournament where they recruit the citizens into a brutal murder-fest, which was handled with a sense of the macabre that I couldn't help but enjoy. The characters are flawed and more realistic that many I've seen in these sort of stories. I was invested in their plights, in the conflicts and victories of the main four. I couldn't put this book down and know that I will happily re-read it when its time for book 2!
There is good interaction between the characters, and plenty of plausible dialogue.
I did see one or two typos and issues over tense, hence my 4* rating.
