Pressestimmen

"Well-paced and readable." -Publishers Weekly

"An engaging heroine to root for...and a page-turner full of twists and turns. Readers will look forward to the next book in the anticipated trilogy."
-Booklist

"Carter convincingly shows readers an America in the not-so-distant future in this dystopian series-starter, after which they will be...so ready for more....Carter is excellent at setting the scene...but what really invests the readers are the perfectly flawed characters." – Romantic Times Book Review

Kurzbeschreibung

"YOU CAN BE SAVED. IF YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING YOU LOVE…"

In Washington, DC, seventy years after democracy has fallen, the number you’re assigned by the government decrees your fate.

Seventeen-year-old orphan Kitty Doe is stuck as a III, looked down upon by the higher ranks. Until a chance encounter gives her the opportunity to become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.

If she says yes, Kitty will be transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister’s niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. Adored. Especially by Lila’s boyfriend, Knox.

But becoming part of society’s inner circle also means seeing its darkest secrets and learning a twisted game Kitty’s only beginning to understand…

Buchgestaltung

Ich finde die Aufmachung einfach klasse! Passend zum Titel gibt es oben in der Ecke einen kleinen Bauer als eins für den ersten Band der Reihe und dann Ziel, welches das Gesicht mit den außergewöhnlichen Augen von Kitty und Lila anvisiert - passt einfach perfekt. Auch die Farben sehen in der Kombinationen super aus, weil das simple Grau den Titel besonders gut hervorhebt.

Meinung

Ich habe wirklich viel über die Debütreihe von Aimée Carter gehört und das meiste davon war einfach richtig übel. Als ich Pawn irgendwann mal bei Goodreads entdeckt habe, dachte ich mir: Oh, das klingt interessant, aber sofort haben musste ich das Buch auch nicht. Wie der Zufall es so wollte, konnte ich mir das HB (im englischen Original ungekürzt) ausleihen und siehe da – Ich war echt hin und weg.

Es gab sehr viele Dinge an diesem Roman, die mich regelrecht begeistern konnten! Ich hätte niemals erwartet, das Buch so sehr zu mögen und Band zwei ist schon so gut wie gekauft (Leider dauert es ja noch etwas, bis dieser erscheint). Aber fangen wir mal von vorne an. Ich glaube, viele Leser haben hier mal wieder eine Dystopie erwartet, die nach dem schrecklichen 0815 Muster vorgeht, das uns allen zum Hals raushängt, aber PAWN ist einfach KEINE Dystopie. Das Buch spielt zwar etwas weiter in der Zukunft, aber der Abstand zu unserer Gegenwart liegt im Bereich des möglichen. Im Grunde sind 71 Jahre vergangen und das System der Regierung ist von einer Demokratie zu einer Art „Hierarchie“ gewechselt. Eine besondere Familie (die Harts) steht an der Spitze der Menschen und hat sozusagen die Kontrolle über das Volk, weil diese sich über Jahre hinweg nach oben gearbeitet haben.

4.0 von 5 Sternen This book has a great premise with a wonderful beginning 8. März 2014
Von A Reading Nurse - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I had been approved for this book a while ago, but for one reason or another it kept getting pushed back on my TBR. But I was looking for something new and fresh to read that was no contemporary and I decided to pick this up. The only thing I am upset about is that I waited so long to read this. But then again, if i had read it earliar, I would have had to wait a longer time for the sequel.

I was intrigued with the book from the very 1st page. I mean common, how many books starts off with the main character about to follow through with a scheme that would result in her getting shot by the police. I was hooked and through out most of the book I was SURE that this was going to be my first 5 STAR read of the year. But alas I had some issues with the pace in the middle, but the beginning and end of this book with in a class of its own!

The story is about a girl named Kitty who on her 17th birthday has just taken a test that will determine her standing in society. If you score a IV or above then you are considered a valuble member of society. But Kitty with her inability to read scored a III, which qualifies her as a sanitation worker. Determined that this is not the way she wants to spend the rest of her life, she decides to steal a peice of fruti from the town market, which is punishable by death. Just when she's about to steal the orange and walk away with it, she is found and stopped by her boyfriend. Her boyfriend is destined to score extremely high and do great things with his life.

Knowing that her ranking will keep her bf back from everything she is capable of, she finds away to run away form working in the sewers. She agrees to work as a prostitute at the local strip club. On her first day there they will be auctioning of her virginity to the highest bidder. Her virginity ends up being the best sale the club has ever seen. As she sits in her room anxiously waiting to see who has purchased her, in enters the person she would ever expect the Prime Minister and he has a proposition for her. His niece, the most beloved girl in the country has died and he wants Kitty who has very similar eyes to take over Lila's life and live as her as a VII the highest ranking in the country.

I honestly was blown away by this story. It was action packed with story lines that kept you guessing with each page. Just when you think you have figured out who Kitty can trust at court, something happens that makes you second guess who is actually Kitty's friend and who is using her for their own alternative motives. The middle of story lagged somewhat. It was all necessary for character development and story building, but if it had kept the same speed as the rest of the book then it would definitely have earned 5 stars from me. And almost toward the end OMG there is a huge twist that I DID NOT SEE COMING and the end was absolutely amazing. It does not end on a cliff hanger, but with a decision that will leave you anxious for book 2!

4.0 von 5 Sternen An epic start to a fresh dystopian series 15. September 2014
Von Alicia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
4 Stars

PAWN was a thrilling, high stakes, emotionally-packed, roller coaster of ups and downs that flew by at immensely fast speed. I devoured PAWN so quickly, and before I knew it, the book was over and I was graveling over not having the next book!

I've been so excited about reading PAWN ever since last year when I received an eARC. I loved the premise and thought it stuck out from the other kazillion dystopians out there. It surely lived up to my expectations and some! I think any fans of dystopian and even thrillers would find this one highly enjoyable!

THE PLOT

YOU CAN BE A VII. IF YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING.

Kitty Doe has just turned Seventeen, and for her, her life is all but over. After taking the test that all seventeen year old's have to take, and only scoring a III, which is not the worse you could score, but by far from the best either. She has very limited options; either be assigned to cleaning the sewers far away from Benji, the only person who really matters in the world. Or, she can turn trick at a club for a month until Benji turns seventeen and takes his test and scores the VI that she knows he'll score, and then get the hell out off dodge. But... a third option has just been laid on the table, one very hard to resist....

Kitty has just been offered the opportunity to join the most powerful family in their world. She will become a VII, the best possible score you can have. And with that VII comes power, fame, wealth, and anything material her heart desires. But of course, nothing comes without a price, and the price she will have to pay is the highest she can give.

Kitty will have to sell her soul to the devil and give up everything and everyone she knows and loves to become a new person. But, she will not just become any person, she will become Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece who mysteriously died. But what she doesn't know is that Kitty Doe will exist no more, and she will be reborn, masked...

With very little options, Kitty reluctantly accepts the offer, but before she realizes what she's signed up for, she awakens no loner as Kitty Doe, but now masked as Lila Hart. She will now have to master every aspect of Lila Hart's life if she has any hope of fooling the people into thinking she is in fact Lila Hart. But why is Lila's image so important that she can not be dead? What caused her death anyway? What is brewing so deep that Lila is needed to bring it back from the brink? Well Kitty is about to get those answers and more.

She hears whispers of a rebellion... Talk of an uprising, secrets of what's sure to come. But as Kitty gets deeper into the game of being their pawn, she realizes that the odds of her escaping all of this when it's over are becoming slim to none. And that can only mean one thing.... murder, HER murder...

Everything is coming to a head as Kitty starts to unravel the web of lies, deceptions, betrays, and ultimately, murder. She will have to forge unlikely allies in her new world. Form new bounds and allegiance, and reunite with old ones as she plays this dangerous game. But if Kitty has any hope of making it out alive, she will have to be what she's been trained to be, a pawn....

Overall, PAWN was a blast to read! I highly enjoyed the world it was built around, and the characters that made it come alive. I can't WAIT to get back into this world and see what happens next, because that ending had me dying to read on!!

NOTE: I received an eARC from Harlequin TEEN for reviewing purposes! All opinions expressed are my own and are not influenced in any way!

5.0 von 5 Sternen My favorite DYSTOPIAN of 2013 11. Dezember 2013
Von Evie Seo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Think you've read all the dystopians out there and nothing can possibly surprise you, let alone blow your mind to pieces? Well, think again! Aimee Carter's latest YA novel has everything an awesome dystopian story should have - a thrilling, well-thought-out premise, complex world-and-character building, breathtaking action and a fabulous shock factor with a side of WOW! It's fresh. It's original. And it's certainly worth picking up.

The world Aimee Carter has crafted is quite a fascinating one. Twisted and disturbing in more ways than you can imagine. The political scene is described in detail - with lots of intrigue, dark secrets and backstabbing. As the story progresses, we learn all we need to know about the history of the world, too. For a fast-paced and action-packed story, PAWN's worldbuilding is surprisingly thorough. Most importantly, there's no info-dumping. We learn things as we go farther into the story. Things about the political situation and the family in charge of the country, as well as what is happening behind the scenes (economic situation, brewing rebellion, corruption). All that is revealed to us one thing at a time, and it's cleverly incorporated into the action, in that it doesn't weigh down on the pacing. Moreover, there are aspects of the story that will send a cold shiver down your spine and make your jaw drop to the floor. Trust me on this one, you'll be just as shocked and mind-numbingly disturbed as I was when you'll learn what Elsewhere really is. Aimee Carter does not hold back in this book.

If you've read The Goddess Test series, you're probably well aware of how entertaining and captivating Aimee's prose is. She knows exactly what to do to keep her readers glued to the pages. PAWN is no exception. If anything, it's even more absorbing and compelling. The swiftly moving action is full of unexpected twists and turns. There's always something happening - no breaks, no slower moments, no boring descriptions and pointless chit-chats. It's 100% pure entertainment, sprinkled with drama and intrigue.

The characters are likeable, even our badass little Kitty with her cute little name. If you think that a heroine with a name like that can't possibly be fierce and feisty, well, you're wrong. By the end of the book, our little kitten morphs into a real lioness.

There's a love story in this book, too, though it takes the back seat to everything else. Just the way I like it! And thankfully, no love triangles and no sappiness! PAWN is essentially about Kitty and how she finds herself between a rock and a hardplace. Manipulated, threatened and forced to cooperate, she has to make some really difficult decisions. Decisions that will affect not only her life, but also the lives of everyone she knows, everyone she cares about. This story is about sacrifice, freedom, fighting for yourself, but also fighting for what is right, what is worth fighting for. Even if it means letting go of your dreams and saying goodbye to your life. It's also about realizing that even in the worst situations, faced with our worst fears, we are still the ones in charge of our fates. And when standing at the crossroads, we're the ones deciding which road we'll take.

So, if you're looking for a fresh and entertaining new dystopian series to get lost in, but you're also craving complexity and meaning, PAWN is the book you should read next.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Intrigue, a twisted family and one girl caught in the middle! 21. November 2014
Von J. Rivera - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book has me a bit torn. I immensely enjoyed the plot as it unravels and the characters were nicely done. The writing moves at a rapid pace that constantly left me wondering where things would go next. And on the flip side was an inadequately built world around them.

Kitty has grown up in a world where people take a single test that determine what kind of life you will have. A six is the best (government officials, etc), a four is average and a one gets you sent Elsewhere, never to be seen of heard from again. However there is one class above it all. The elite sevens- of which only the Hart family members are privileged enough to be. When Kitty tests out as a three and is to be separated from her boyfriend she makes a few frowned upon choices and winds up with a very strange "offer" to become a seven. Next thing she knows she is Lila Hart! To protect those she loves she is enticed to become Prime Minister Hart's pawn.

Through the early parts of the book I wanted to knock some common sense into Kitty. She is very naive and oblivious to a lot going on. She is the perfect pawn, never asking questions. I often found myself disappointed with her. On the flip side, the other characters seemed very well done. There is room for doubt as I was stuck inside Kitty's head for the duration of the book but from what I read, each of them has hidden depths and multiple sides that are periodically revealed to the reader.

The world in which Kitty lives makes no sense. How did America become ruled over by a single family? How have they remained in power? The explanation is weak and filled with holes. For some countries that have always lived in government fear, this might have worked but I don't see America ever accepting such a thing. Revolts and riots would be way out of hand and overthrown such a concept. In many ways, the government system is similar to the one used in Kiera Cass's 'Selection' series. Yet it bothers me more here with what the plot focus is. Political games is much higher in this book.

There are several twists and turns in this book. Each character has their own agenda and secret(s). Everyone. Alliances seems to alter. Some real, others false and each time you think a character is going to zig, they zag. This had be distrustful of the characters and not quite sure how things would turn out. Some twists were obvious but some of the personality ones in particular were intriguing. People's motivations especially.

Overall, the book is an enjoyable read. I just need to pretend that the setting is somewhere other than the US. It is a fast read (seems shorter than it is) and is easy to get through. I will be continuing this series. The ending left enough to continue on that my mind will not put this series at rest. So while not an overly heavy cliffhanger awaits, there is enough of an edge to leave me wanting more.
3 & a 1/2 stars.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A promising start to a new dystopian series 26. November 2013
Von Kim {kimberlyfaye reads} - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
"Have you ever played chess, Kitty?"
I eyed her. What did a board game have to do with this? "Not really."
"You and I should play sometime. I think you would like it," she said. "It's a game of strategy, mostly. The strong pieces are in the back row, while the weak pieces – the pawns – are all up front, ready to take the brunt of the attack. Because of their limited movement and vulnerability, most people underestimate them and only use them to protect the more powerful pieces. But when I play, I protect my pawns."

I found the entire concept of this book interesting. I've read my fair share of dystopian books and I'm always looking for something that makes them unique. For me, it's often the characters. In this case, I really did like the characters – Kitty particularly – but the concept was what sucked me in. The idea that a test that you take when you're seventeen years old can determine your entire future is intriguing. Flawed in the way that dystopian societies tend to be, but intriguing all the same. The book started off with a bang and had enough secrets, lies and twists to keep me interested for the duration.

Kitty was strong and determined and a lot smarter than her aptitude test made her out to be. I couldn't help but wonder throughout the book what her true score would have been had she been able to finish the test. I guess I'll probably never know. But it's interesting to think about regardless. In addition to being strong, determined and intelligent, Kitty was protective of those she cared about. In the form of true heroine, she was willing to risk herself for those she loved and for the bigger cause at hand.

This book had a bit of a love triangle, but not in the traditional sense. Kitty's heart belonged to Benjy. It always had. Once she was Masked as Lila Hart, however, she found herself with the complication of a fiancé, Knox. I adored Benjy. He was sweet and caring in the way that childhood sweethearts are. He was a good guy and I hoped they would find each other again. But, I liked Knox, too. Sure he had his faults, but all in all, he was a nice guy. Kitty and Knox did have a mutual appreciation for each other and sometimes it seemed there could be more than that. But, first love dies hard. For both of them. Their partnership and friendship worked, too. They had an interesting dynamic.

The romance was such a tiny piece of this book. It was a motivator for characters' actions, but otherwise it didn't play much of a part. There were so many intriguing characters in this book and so much more to learn about each and every one of them. The Harts are one screwed up family. The hunger for power and control was unreal. So were the manipulations, secrets and lies.

The only struggle I had with this book was that the world building wasn't quite as detailed as I wanted it to be. Regardless of what type of book I'm reading, I want to feel like I'm fully immersed. I want to feel like I'm there. It could be because this book was set in the DC area, which is where I live, but I never really felt like I was someplace else. This book certainly had the creepy factor of a dystopian covered, but the lack of detail about the world itself kept me from feeling fully engaged.

I really did enjoy the book. It sucked me in from the beginning and kept me surprised along the way. It was a very good start to a series I look forward to continuing.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review. All quotes come from the review copy and may differ from the final version.
