You guys have heard me gushing all about dystopian novels and apparently this month was the month for me to read all the dystopian.
Today I’m participating in another blog tour for another dystopian. Surprise, surprise! 😉
However today I’m sharing a fan-made book trailer and a review! Take a look below at the trailer and then see what I thought of this stunning book. 😀
About the Book
Katherine Holliday has left behind her life in the Federation. She is ready to start a new one with Matthew and the Intolerants. But it isn’t long before the Underground leaders send her on a mission that takes her back to the Federation. Katherine finds herself in City 1, with the help of new and unexpected allies, in an attempt to locate information that could help the Underground escape the Council’s battle plan called Project Endgame.
But the Federation has changed and the Council is more desperate than ever. While back in the Federation, Katherine uncovers a tangled web of deception and manipulation. Haynes isn’t the only one with secrets, and the question of who to trust becomes harder to answer.
Fan-Made Book Trailer
If you enjoyed the first book, I can assure you’ll enjoy the sequel!
I really loved how even though Katherine has changed due to her faith, she’s still is herself. She didn’t change so differently in the Underground that I felt she wasn’t the character I enjoyed reading about in Reintegration. Seeing her however in the Federation with her faith was awesome. Her struggles felt real and her thoughts of trying to show others the truth was eye-opening. (There was an internal dialogue concerning logic that I found to be really really good.)
Matthew was definitely one of my favorite characters and loved getting to meet his family! His and Katherine’s relationship is super sweet and adored how they encouraged one another. Plus, seeing his family so readily accept her was just icing the cake. 😉
I have to commend the author on the twists in this book. I confess that I caught myself thinking that the ending would be “typical,” but I was *very* wrong. Katherine didn’t know who to trust and now I feel in the same boat with that big turn of events. I’m really wondering what will happen in Endgame because hello character who flipped everyone’s world upside down.
Another great dystopian added to the Christian fiction realm! I would recommend these books to readers who enjoy Christian fiction, dystopian, and light science fiction with little to no violence and clean romance.

About the Author
Ashley Bogner is a nerdy author who lives in Utah with her nerdy theologian husband who may possibly own more books than she does. She is a homeschool graduate who wrote her first “novel” when she was in fifth grade (which was really a thirty-page story about talking cats she is grateful no one will ever read). It’s a rare occasion when she isn’t writing—she works as a technical writer at her day job and writes novels in her spare time.
In 2017, she published her debut novel, Reintegration, a dystopian novel for teens. The sequel, Underground, is scheduled for release later in 2019. Ashley writes young adult science fiction and fantasy novels that explore themes of sacrifice, redemption, and hope.
Ashley may or may not be the stereotypical author who loves fancy coffee drinks, chocolate, and lengthy chats about her favorite books.
