      All that hardcore blurb with the heroine named Kitty?Now, seriously?I mean, it will be just so funny to read. xD Just imagine.She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she lovesAs a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matterHero: "KITTY, LOOK OUT!"Kitty: "Youyou left me for that girl?Hahaha, I can actually imagine the hero saying that and Kitty being like, N [...]

      For the 82323234287637's book in its genre this year alone, Pawn was surprisingly original with a refreshing triangle-free minimalist romance and a plot that had tons happening throughout, not just anticipation for the ending. As my first Aimee Carter book I can't tell you how it compares to her Goddess Test series, but I was impressed with this one for sure. The world building, at first, sounds like your average dystopian. Society is divided by numbers given to you after a big test on your 17th [...]

      "But if you’re careful—if you protect your pawns and they reach the other side of the board, do you know what happens then? Your pawn becomes a queen.”I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. If you had asked me what I was going to give this book after the first few chapters, without question, I would have said "1." Therefore, it was with a considerable amount of surprise that I found myself enjoying the rest of the book as much as I did. This does not mean that the rest of the book [...]

      So Pawn. It's a dystopian novel by Aimee Carter.Ugh, I wish. I mean, that is basically the gist of it, if you wanted the tl;dr version, but there's so much absurd fuckery that no joke, I actually considered doing a chapter-by-chapter snark-along. This book is just fuckin' perfect for it, fuckery abounds on every page. However, one (and a half) read-throughs were enough for me, so instead, this review is just going to be long. Very long. So long. I'm sorry.Also, SPOILERS YOThe biggest shame of al [...]

      Here a clone, there a clone, everywhere a clone, clone?Mini spoilers ahead about the confusing nature of the characters, but no big plot reveals.The only thing more disturbing than a clone scenario would have been clowns.So a girl takes a placement test and ends up getting put on the bottom tier of society advantage. She gets the opportunity to become a higher class if she hides the truth of how she got there. This is when everything goes to hell in a handbasket.You know how high fantasy books h [...]

      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 [...]

      Rating is either 4 or 4.5 stars. Excellent excellent excellent. I have an annoyance or two, but I loved this as a whole regardless. Review to come. ALSO, false alarm! No love triangle! Just another bonus point for this book and its awesomeness.

      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. T [...]

      Review from Ja čitam, a ti?I didn't expect much. A lot of my friends didn't like Goddess Test by Aimee Carter and they warned me that I might not like Pawn. I decided to give it try anyhow and I'm glad I did. Pawn maybe did start a little bit "clumsy", but premise of this novel is so intriguing and the rest of it was really good.One corrupted family, one low ranking girl, unexpected circumstances and few new friends. Judging by available advanced copies of books, it looks like dystopian genre i [...]

      Çok sevdiğim bir türdür distopya. Okurken hep çok keyif alırım. Aimee Carter'in Piyon-Vezir-Şah isimli kitaplarından oluşan serisi de ilk çıktığı günden beri dikkatimi çekmişti. Okurlar tarafından hep övgüyle bahsedilmesi ve seriye olan merakım biran önce başlamama sebep oldu. Yüksek beklentilerle okuduğum Piyondan (ilk kitap) ne yazık ki çok keyif alamadım, beklediğimin epey altında kaldı. Okuması oldukça kolay (NYT Best Seller olmasından az çok tahmin edileb [...]

      2.5Pawn is jumping the bandwagon of dystopian books bound for great sales but ultimately not satisfying legions of readers. It had a lot of potential to be realized but in the end, it failed by filling it all up with boring action scene after another and lackluster character, which is quite a feat now that I think about it, because around 100 pages initially were written to lay down the groundwork for the characters.So commercially? It'll be a hit.And aesthetically? Flop, flop, floppity-flop!In [...]

      With the dystopian genre so exhausted, it’s nice when a book comes along which seems to offer something different. And Pawn for me did start that way. In Kitty’s world everyone at the age of 17 is put through a test, this determines the individuals “ranking” and what sort of job they end up with afterwards. The higher the number the individual ends up with the better job they end up getting. Kitty has the potential to do well but ends up messing up her test and leaves with a III. It’s [...]

    14. Renata on said:

      Me ha gustado la idea de este libro, de cómo es la sociedad y qué tiene que hacer Kitty, la protagonista, para ayudar a los que quiere. Sí que le vi muchas cosas negativas, por ejemplo la falta de introducción del mundo, que explique mejor las políticas, pero en general fue una lectura breve y bastante interesante.

      See more reviews at YA Midnight ReadsThank you Harlequin Australia for sending me this copy. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review. After quite a displeasing debut series by Aimee Carter (The Goddess Test) I wasn't exactly enthused to try Pawn. However when the early reviews started to roll in, I was surprised by the constant great number of positive feedback Aimee Carter's latest was receiving. So I hopped on that train, and was not at all dissatisfied.Kitty Doe hasn't had the [...]

"At least now you can sleep safe in your bed and not fear your neighbors ransacking your home and murdering your entire family.""Why would I fear my neighbors when my government does it for them?"Yes, this piece of dialogue describes perfectly well the kind of society we deal with in this book.Kitty Doe lives in a world where everyone is ranked into castes ranging from I to VII, with I being viewed upon as the wastes and sent Elsewhere, and VI [...]

      Carter's Goddess Test series was sort of hit and miss for me, but I found it mostly enjoyable. So when I got the chance to read this one, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Beyond the can she switch from mythology to dystopia question, I was also a bit concerned about the fact that I've read far too many dystopian novels lately. It seems like about every third novel I read has a post-apocalyptic theme to it. Then again, nobody's holding a gun to my head, now are they? If I'm getting a tad blown [...]

      Definition of PAWN: ⇝a chess piece of the smallest size and value. A pawn moves one square forward along its file if unobstructed (or two on the first move), or one square diagonally forward when making a capture. Each player begins with eight pawns on the second rank, and can promote a pawn to become any other piece (typically a queen) if it reaches the opponent's end of the board.⇝a person used by others for their own purposes.Book Title: PAWNAuthor: Aimee CarterNarration: Lameece IssaqSer [...]

      I thought Pawn had such wonderful potential, and I really wanted to love it, but when the main character tends to do things just for the sake of others, with no mind of her own, I tend to start disliking everything she does. Maybe she's vulnerable now, but will be stronger in the future?The government with the Harth family being the head has devised a system where each new adult will be placed in a caste system. Not original but the idea behind it always intrigued me. I wished there was more bac [...]

      OMG. IS HET AL "VOORJAAR" 2016?! Dit boek was zó goed! In een dag uit gelezen! Het totaal concept was niet helemaal orgineel, het deed mij een beetje denken tussen een mix van The Selection en The Hunger Games haha. Maar goed, ik vind Aimée Carter echt een super toffe schrijftster, want de Godinnen serie heb ik ook echt veslonden! 4 dikke sterren!

    21. YaraAdorablebooks.nl on said:

      DIT. BOEK. SERIEUS! Aimee Carter is echt een vreselijk goede YA schrijfster en na de Godinnentest-trilogie dacht ik niet dat ze een betere serie kon schrijven. But she did! De recensie komt gauw op Adorable Books.

    22. Burçin on said:

      Açıkçası beni çok da tatmin etmeyen bir seri başlangıcı yaptık Piyon'la. Kurulan yeni sistemde, iktidarda kalabilmek adına verilen taht savaşını konu alan kitap, ne yazık ki bana karakterlerin hiçbirini sevdirmeyi başaramadı.Son 30 sayfayı artık bitse de kapatsam şu kitabı diyerek okudum. Muhtemelen seriye devam etmeyeceğim.

      3.5 starsOnce you turn 17 your life is ranked by the number branded to the back of you neck. It establishes your importance into society. A society that promises that the citizens will be taken care of, but you have to give back first. Everyone has their role to play, but it just so happens that Kitty Doe is a III (3)…well, it’s better then being a I (1) and going Elsewhere. Still, the life she was hoping for with her boyfriend, Benjy feels even more impossible so when Prime Minister Daxton [...]

      It should probably be illegal to keep reading an authors work when you’ve so thoroughly panned it twice before but, you see, I was curious. Take away the horrible plotting and burdensome story of The Goddess Test, could Carter write something I liked, because I always suspected she could. If Pawn had continued in quality from the first half into the second, then I’d probably be giving it four stars right now.Pawn started out very promising indeed. Kitty, ranked a three in a society that live [...]

      "What's your name?""Kitty""Is that short for something?""Yeah, it's short for 'my mother was insane and had a thing for cats.'" momma, is that you?I like Kitty! I like a good smartass!So, the book starts out a little rough. Let's just say it takes a lot of licks to get to the good chewy center. We have a dystopian society that came together within 71 years. 71 years! So, believable? no. Then, we have old people, disabled, crooks, traitors, and unwanted sent out to a place called "Elsewhere". So, [...]

      Saying I LOVE dystopian would be an understatement! Which means, I was super excited to receive a copy of PAWN by Aimee Carter (thanks Halequin!) for review. The blurb is epic, is it not? Plus, I have to say, cover looove! I love the simplicity. It packs a subtle punch. As for the book itself, I was torn on what to think! It’s a lot like LEGEND by Marie Lu – you take a test (at 17 in PAWN) and you get a number. I is the worst, and VII is the best (only the president & co get the coveted [...]

      I was sucked into this book from the very beginning. This is an edge of your seat, fast and furious, roller coaster and I'd be shocked if you didn't pick up the next book immediately. What a scary world to live in! Love the heroine so much.
