    1. **4.5 Beautifully Different stars** Sasha Hunter is a teenage girl, living in a dystopian London. Her mother disappeared on the 'Dystopia Day' , a day that brought chaos in the society with a strange blackout that led several people to insanity. Somehow Sasha's mother disappeared that day and ever since she's not really close to her secretive father. One day everything changes though. A young,handsome boy knocks on her door and delivers something for her dad. Curiosity gets the best of her and s [...]

    2. Anthony the Author contacted me and ask if I would like to review his book. It was an honour, so when I got this book 14 days ago, I didn't know much about it. I just knew it was a Young Adult book and thats that.As I kept reading I realise that is paranormal book and I was hook. Since I am a huge fan of Supernatural and those thingsI realy enjoyed this book. There were twists in the book that I did not see coming and that made this book a great read, it kept me on the edge of me seat.I love the [...]

    3. This book was awesome! Anthony Ergo is a great author and I really enjoyed the uniqueness of his story, characters and the freshness of reading a story that spoke to me so much. I did find the main character Sasha to be annoying in the beginning but as the story progresses you get to see her grow and mature as a character and as a person, plus teenager, they are all annoying rightlolAs a person who has dealt with spirits and ghosts my whole life I really felt a connection to this story. I rememb [...]

    4. I heard about this book when the author followed me on twitter and we got tweeting. I found out he was at the Young Adult Literature Convention in London and I brought the book.The book is so good. it has a lead character who is flawed and not that confident and shy. which is relatable, instead of being too confident and kick ass which most teens and ppl aren't. The book is action packed and fast paced and has so many twists, it will keep you engaged. It's nice to see how the main character Sash [...]

    5. Dystopia is a novel that offers everything you want - a heroine in the form of Sasha who doesn't let her asthma, superstitions and seeming attraction to the number 13 stop her. With back up in form of her father's protege and his friend, can Sasha stop 'The Hangman Poltergeist' from breaching the barrier between this world and next? And will she ever find out what happened to her mother on Dystopia Day - a day that caused people to go crazy.

    6. **I received a free copy of this text from the author and participated in beta reading. This review is my honest opinion and is in no way affected by external motivation**That being said, I loved this story - even in its pre-published infancy it was well written and interesting.The main character, Sasha, is imperfect - she's a loner, socially-awkward, superstitious, and damaged by the loss of her mother during an event the whole world experienced.Three years later, the day that everything stoppe [...]

    7. The best YA book I've read this year!I don't normally write reviews (this is my first one in fact) but after reading Dystopia and then seeing Rebecca's review I felt compelled to write one.Where do I start? Well, first off I think that this book has some of the most likeable, well-rounded and interesting lead characters I've come across in YA fiction. I'm sick of reading books where the heroine is this perfect, flawless, action hero. It's so refreshing to read a book with a realistic lead charac [...]

    8. After reconsidering my previous review and deciding that I was a bit unfair with my rating I have decided to give Dystopia 4 stars. Although this book is aimed at an audience quite a bit younger than me I did love the idea of it. Anthony Ergo has taken a YA paranormal in a far different direction to anything else I have read, from the offset it is full of action, twists and of course, teen romance. I would definitely recommend this book to paranormal lovers under the age of 18

    9. Got this book at London film and comic con YALC with my friend and met the author but not only is the author a cool dude but the he's a brilliant writer, I can't wait for the next one because this is a series that I will defienlty keep reading for as long as the books continues

    10. My first contact with Liverpool writer and musician Anthony Ergo was when he followed me on Twitter after I mentioned that I would be attending London’s first ever YALC (Young Adult Literature Convention). He was releasing his debut novel Dystopia at the event and I knew that I would have to pick up a copy. As an added bonus to a music and book blogger, Anthony was selling his band’s EP I Can See You Now with the book, so naturally I bought both!Dystopia is a paranormal adventure story with [...]

    11. This one was a page turner!! While paranormal is not my normal "go to" genre, I stumbled across Dystopia and was totally intrigued by the cover. After reading the first two chapters of the book, I was hooked. The author sets a pace with this story that keeps you turning the pages. I don't recommend reading it on your lunch break because you will only be frustrated when you have to put it down and go back to work. ( I made the mistake of doing this) The characters in the book are all unique in th [...]

    12. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal).What an interesting book! I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I first started reading this. All I knew was that the blurb sounded interesting so I figured I’d give it a shot. I’m so glad I did!I can honestly say I’ve never read anything quite like this book. I’ve read YA paranormals and I’ve read books set in a dystopian future, but I’ve never read a book that combined the two in this [...]

    13. I stood in front of the author's stall at YALC thinking of buying the book when Anthony Ergo struck up a conversation about a hoodie I was wearing, after having a little talk and checking how much the book was I knew I had to buy it (with a signed bookmark, his band's ep it was a bargain at £5. He even gave me a tin of free mints) Very good read, a paranormal & supernatural adventure story with a strong-willed female protagonist with characters that are selfless and caring. I will definitel [...]

    14. The storyline is REALLY good. The world building and character building were ON POINT.Buuuuuuut I just felt like the whole book was RUSHED! There was no description, and whole scenes - like the juicy ones - would last for 2 or 3 pages. I wouldve liked it to go a tad slower, and add a tad bit MORE SOMETHING to the whole story.I really enjoyed it, but I felt like the whole thing was written in FAST FORWARD.

    15. I read this book after being recommended by a friend. I love YA factiond I LOVED this. I read it in 2 days and have since read the second in the series, Hysteria. I like that it's a new approach to the dystopian genre. If you like Paranormal/Dystopian/YA then seriously give this a try.

    16. Great Supernatural Read!Fascinating plot, great storyline and interesting resolution. Well worth spending your spare time enjoying a really good read. I also like that the author used good grammar and accurate spelling, cos I'm particular about grammar, spelling and punctuation, and all writers should be, but not all are. This one is, and I quite appreciate that extra care (along with the creativity, of course!). Looking forward to the sequels!!

    17. [Review also posted on UK and US]I stumbled across this author on Twitter and subsequently had the opportunity to meet him at the Young Adult Literature Convention (YALC), where his first YA novel ‘Dystopia’ stood out among the work of more established writers thanks to a very eye-catching book cover and a title that instantly appeals to the many fans of the dystopian genre.As a matter of fact, ‘Dystopia’ isn’t actually a truly dystopian novel; yes, it’s set in a slightly twisted wo [...]

    18. I bought this book and a bundle of 'swag' at the UK YALC at London film and comiccon this July and got this book signed by the lovely author! I was the 100th buyer. My general thoughts of this self-published work is that it's pretty good. I wasn't expecting anything extraordinary but by the end, I was pleasantly surprised. Sasha Hunter was a good protagonist for this story as her character development was clear and how she dealt with her ailments and obstacles was impressive. She was forward-thi [...]

    19. Originally published on Readwave.Post-Apocalypse, ghosts and a superstitious teenager. Cannot go wrong.It usually goes like this: You mention you go to a book convention on Twitter, some people start following you and amongst them an username catches your eyes because it mentions two of the things you love the most.DYSTOPIA - YA NOVEL. YA being Young Adult.Next thing you know, you meet the author (Anthony Ergo) at said Convention (YALC), you pay £5 for the book + soundtrack + wristband + signed [...]

    20. ***I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Lovers of Paranormal (LoP)***WOW! I literally couldn't put this book down. SynopsisSasha is a 'walking bag omen' and superstitious to her core. Everything that could happen to her, occurs on the 13th, for example she was born on the 13th day, at 13:13. Even her name has 13 letters! On her 13th birthday, a worldwide blackout occurs, which lasts 13 seconds. This is then known as Dystopia Day from here on out. The events of Dystopia Day [...]

    21. Originally posted here: heatherreviews.wordpress/________________________________ I was really excited to be able to get the first and second book in this series and I didn’t wait too long before I started them. A friend of mine recommended that I read them and I wasn’t disappointed.Sasha Hunter remembers her thirteenth birthday quite well – it was the day the world blacked out for thirteen seconds and the day her mother disappeared. The number thirteen follows her around like a bad omen a [...]

    22. I picked this book up in the Summer at the London Film and Comic Con- they had a massive author festival alongside it and Anthony Ergo was there. This book looked good and I had a quick chat with him, then decided to give this book a try. But I've been manic busy ever since so only just got round to reading it.Sasha is very superstitious and she hates the number 13, this isn't helped by the fact that there was a world wide disaster on the 13th three years ago, a disaster that caused her mother t [...]

    23. Personally, I didn't enjoy this book as much as I was hoping to. I thought that the writing style was awkward and didn't flow very well (if that makes sense) to the point where I was struggling to read it without cringing. I didn't like most of the characters including the main girl, Sasha. The pace was too quick to enjoy each scene or to feel involved. And worst of all was the 'love interest' Aaron. I felt Sasha and Aaron's feelings for each other literally came out of nowhere and quite frankly [...]

    24. I heard about this book from Lovers of Paranormal aka LOP on .4.5 starsThis was a very refreshing young adult novel. I haven’t read a lot of young adult books that I’ve liked recently but this one is a winner!I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. I thought Sasha was a great character. She is only sixteen years old so she has her teenage tendencies but throughout the story she matures quickly. There are lots of changes that happened in her life and she slowly defined herself and this was s [...]

    25. It happened on September 13 - Sasha's 13th birthday - a world-wide blackout caused all power sources to shut down. No one was safe, and during that blackout Sasha's mother disappeared. Now, on Sasha's 16 birthday she begins to learn more about who she is when she meets a messenger delivering a package for her father.Anthony has taken YA paranormal and pushed it into a different direction, from the offset it’s action packed, with, to me, interesting lead characters.I’ve started to dislike tho [...]

    26. This is similar to many of the new YA books out there as it is set in a dystopian world (surprise!). But, not only is it set in a version of London not too disimilar to our own, there is the paranormal to deal with too (think the TV show Supernatural, including the hunting, troubled main characters, and crap jokes to try and diffuse the tension).Now, I know what you’re thinking: it probably follows a teenage girl and her fight for survival and her love, like every other dystopian style book th [...]

    27. This is an absolute must read for any lover of the paranormal. Dystopia is unique and very different from what I have read to date, which is what I love the most. Anthony has a very lively writing style that captures your attention until the very end. It was very difficult to put this book down before being done with it. His descriptions of scenery are very visual allowing you "to be there". The pace is absolutely perfect, not too face to feel rushed, nor too slow that you start loosing interest [...]

    28. The plot is interesting and the characters are likeable. So why the 3 stars? Well I felt the story lacked more depth, it is just a simple plain mystery like a easy open shut case for a detective. There was one great scene of a car chase and being buried alive apart from that there are no mindblowing moments. Even the climax felt anti-climatic.It felt like reading the interesting adventures from a non-writer's diary. 2 stars for the actual novel - writing and characters. The 3rd star is simply fo [...]

    29. a good startThis was the first book I have read by this author. I enjoyed the book. It was a good start to this series. I will definitely continue but it did not leave me with a burning desire to read the next. I thought Aaron and Zara's relationship was weird . He was very flirtatious with her , so it was a little bizarre to find out their real connection. I did like Sasha. She was believable, not great at everything but willing to do whatever it takes for her dad. Looking forward to find out m [...]
