This book was action packed and kept me on my toes. It was so cool to see these giant robotic mechanized weapons being used to control society. Usually these contraptions are portrayed as tools to help humans fight back against monsters but in this case, they were used to control outer regions to a capital, making sure that they meet quotas and such for resources to be sent to the capital.
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!
