Kiah lives in a post apocalyptic dystopian society where orphans are taken out of their homes at the young age of sixteen, and are inducted into the military to fight in The Quadrant War. Future North America has been split into separate Quadrants, all run by their own Quadrant leader, who only wants the best for their citizens... Everything seems like it's running perfectly.
At least on the outside.
Kiah was born with the gift of Soul-Shifting, which allows her to float out of her own body and travel in her sleep. A very handy tool to use in the Quadrant War. After Kiah's brother and mother die, and after her father leaves her to join the military, Kiah is left an orphan, quickly approaching her own day when she will join the Quadrant War.
Kiah's Soul-Shifting Journey: The Quadrant War is the first book in the series, and I've got to say, it has some potential. The plot is exciting and quite interesting. It had the same impact on me as Margaret Peterson Haddix's Among the Hidden series.
It's packed full of action, Kiah's romance with the charming Ryker is sweet and adds a few swoon-worthy scenes to the mix, and I can easily see it getting popular.
I did have a bit of a hard time getting adjusted to the way the characters accentuated certain words when they spoke, but at about 45% into the book, I hardly even noticed. The plot became quick enough to bypass imperfections for me.
I'd say that if you're dying for a taste of that Divergent-esque, fast-paced, action packed, suspenseful, nail biting type story, download a copy of Kiah's Soul-Shifting Journey: The Quadrant War. I will be reading on in the series to see where the story goes.
