Gearbreakers: Gearbreakers, Book1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Two girls on opposite sides of a war discover they're fighting for a common purpose - and falling for each other - in Zoe Hana Mikuta's high-octane debut Gearbreakers, perfect for fans of Pacific Rim, Pierce Brown's Red Rising Saga, and Marie Lu's Legend series.
We went past praying to deities and started to build them instead....
The shadow of Godolia's tyrannical rule is spreading, aided by their giant mechanized weapons known as Windups. War and oppression are everyday constants for the people of the Badlands, who live under the thumb of their cruel Godolia overlords.
Eris Shindanai is a Gearbreaker, a brash young rebel who specializes in taking down Windups from the inside. When one of her missions goes awry and she finds herself in a Godolia prison, Eris meets Sona Steelcrest, a cybernetically enhanced Windup pilot. At first, Eris sees Sona as her mortal enemy, but Sona has a secret: She has intentionally infiltrated the Windup program to destroy Godolia from within.
As the clock ticks down to their deadliest mission yet, a direct attack to end Godolia's reign once and for all, Eris and Sona grow closer - as comrades, friends, and perhaps something more....
Praise for Gearbreakers:
"An absolute joyride of a story set in a vivid, arresting world. Gearbreakers is sci-fi at its very finest, combining the grandeur of mecha fighting machines with the intimacy of (splendidly feral) found family. Zoe Hana Mikuta is a talent to be in awe of." (Chloe Gong, New York Times best-selling author of These Violent Delights)

Enter the Gearbreakers, which are brave individuals that take on these mechanized weapons by taking them down from the inside. I have to give props to them because this would be such a dangerous job where your life would be on the line daily.
I definitely got Hunger Games vibes during this book with a mix of Divergent/Red Rising. The book focuses on fighting back for what you believe in and doing everything you can to break the normal ways of how society currently works.
There is also a sapphic relationship in here which I was rooting for from the very beginning! You will feel pain, love, longing, fury and so many other emotions if you decide to read this book.
I would recommend this book for lovers of Pacific Rim or any of the books mentioned above. You will not be disappointed!

Eris, Sona, and the other female characters are strong young women who make choices with intention, unlike many female characters in other YA novels that seem to be just going with the circumstances. Plop Eris or Sona in any other world and they would still be fighting to change it for the better.
The action scenes are intense! I know a movie is being proposed and I hope it can do the writing justice because I felt like I was tumbling inside the mechas as I was reading.
Gearbreakers is a great binge-worthy book. You have to use the beginning of the book to breath and take in all the sights like you do on a roller coaster while it climbs the starting ramp because after that, it’s a heart pounding thrilling ride.
I am so so looking forward to book 2 next year!!!!!! I have the audible version of Gearbreakers #1 on preorder too.
