Insensate ( The Dissolute Trilogy # 1)
by Michelle Horst
Our Ecocity abides by way of the seven virtues since the wars have ended. I’d say live, but I wouldn’t go that far. No one is truly alive around here if you ask my opinion, but I wouldn’t dare say that out loud. If someone dares go against the System of Principles, they get judged by the Emissaries, and if found blameworthy of an act against any of the Seven Virtues they are cast out to become a Dissolute. The Emissaries are clever, they never use words like hate, love, religion, nor faith and hope. I’ve read about those words and I think words like ‘hope’ and ‘faith’ might wake the people up, make them less zombie-like.

First of all I must tell you that I don't read Dystopian at all !! Like, I haven't read "The Divergent Series" or "Hunger Games Series." Go figure !
But this was something i was so impatient to read and TRY dystopian just because of this lovely cover ! I am in love with these colors.
But apart from the cover, the book itself was worth a shot ! It was my first Dystopian novel and I truly loved it.
The story was so grabbing that i couldn't put it down. Michelle Horst has nailed it !!
The story is about war and freedom. There are two rivals Virtuous and Dissolutes, there is a war between them. Virtuous have the ritual to choose seven people every year and send them to the World of Dissolutes to save the people and spread the word.
Jai is chosen to go in the other world but she doesn't know that everything is not the way it looks like.
"Life is not about being fair. It's about choices and believing that you always that you always make the right one. If you don't believe you made the right ones, it will haunt your every step."
Amazing piece of art, full of emotions, feelings of survival and first love !
"You fit with me."
Can't wait to read the next book.
