An interesting concept that I've not seen or read about before. I liked this book - I will certainly be reading the next one!

Savage Run, the first in a series of books by E.J. Squires, is an excellent read for those that love dystopian novels with strong female protagonists. Heidi Cruise, the main female lead, belongs to the lowest caste in her society called a Laborer. The other two castes in the order of hierarchy are Advisors and Masters, with the Masters having the most freedom in society (and able to have Laborers and Advisors to work and slave for them). Heidi’s vision of working for a Master comes to screeching halt as she witnesses her best friend Gemma being severely abused by her assigned Master. The same Master that Heidi will serve come her 18th birthday (which happens to be right around the corner). Heidi hatches a plan for Gemma and her to escape the clutches of the abusive Master by entering into the Culmination race illegally. Open to all males of the Advisor and Laborer castes, those that finish the grueling race without dying or quitting gain the status of Master. Heidi of course comes across many barriers on her way to the registration for the race and her journey to free herself (and possibly Gemma) begins.

World Building:
The world was an excellent revision of our planet. You have the same geography, a slight change to the prevalent societies in today’s world, but then you add a catastrophic event that changed how Heidi’s society was formed. With a caste system that is totally original, the author kept my attention. And although I assumed that this book was written on Earth, there were obvious advances in technology that were shown throughout the book that insinuated that this story took place in the future.

Main Characters:
The main character Heidi was a very believable 17-year-old.

If you are a fan of YA dystopian fiction, or if you just love a book with lots of action and characters that both intrigue and infuriate you, read this. I went into the book thinking it was going to be some sort of 'Hunger Games' wannabe, but oh, I was so pleasantly surprised!

The premise is intriguing: in a world where a class system keeps many from ever experiencing true freedom, boys can compete to win entry into the upper class, but only by risking their lives in a gruesome, grueling competition. For the girls, a life of oppression and violence is pretty much all they have to look forward to. Heidi, the heroine, decides to give the upper class the proverbial middle finger when she disguises herself and her best friend as boys in order to enter the competition and win their place in upper society, and their freedom.

Things go so wrong, and she ends up in the competition alone, hiding her true identity from all the other competitors except for one, and the registrar who takes pity on her. As she competes, and succeeds, she makes plenty of enemies, especially in the President, who feels she has made a fool of him by sneaking into the competition. The registrar who helps her happens to be the President's son, making the matter even more complicated, and she ends up having all sorts of complicated romantic feelings towards him.

I like the way the book deals with hatred and bigotry. Homosexuality is deemed almost a crime, and to be a gay person makes you something 'less' than even the lowest of the lower class. But the way this is dealt with allows the main character to address her own inner bigotry and realize that hating someone for their sexual orientation was as bad as hating someone for their class.

For me, the book started out a little slow, but soon after, I was captivated. The settings is very dystopian and there is plenty of heart wrenching abuse throughout. It's a very different society than the one we know. The main character is a rebel who finds friends in unlikely places in order to find freedom, but ultimately, she changes everything! She's very strong and a great role model for both girls and boys. Younger teens would definitely benefit from reading this. The book is done in such a way that anyone of any age could enjoy it! You can't go wrong with this book if you enjoy fantasy, dystopia, and strong characters finding their own path despite horrible circumstances. There are quite a few twists that you wont exactly see coming and the extreme medical advancements make it seem so much farther in the future, yet the rest of the world seems primal and less developed. It's a great story all around and I can't wait to read the rest of it!

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The main character is extremely likeable and realistic. I find in other books, main characters are always so willing to jump into danger to save people they barely even know, which I don't think is realistic at all. Heidi's reactions to certain situations are normal and what you would expect.

The style of writing is good and the plot picks up straight away, which I like. All of these types of books are similar to the hunger games, but not so similar that you find yourself comparing the two. A bit short, but I'll definitely be buying the second book.
