The Testing Series - Review

Independent Study: The Testing, Book 2 - Joelle Charbonneau Graduation Day - Joelle Charbonneau
— feeling silent

The larger a population, the less our leaders feel personally accountable to each citizen under their care. It makes it easier to sacrifice a few for the good of others.

- Independent Study, Chapter 9


I might not be able to stop what is to come, but I cannot leave without trying.

- Graduation Day, Chapter 4


Where my beliefs were once black and white, I now see shades of gray.

- Graduation Day, Chapter 5



Okay, so I don't want to give anything away. I loved the first book in this series, The Testing. (see review here The Testing - Review ). It was fast paced and exciting with twists and turns and surprises. The rest of the series basically flows in the same vein.


I found the second two books just as enjoyable as the first. They were fast paced and exciting and even when I thought I knew what was happening, the story still managed to surprise me. I didn't know who to trust any more than Cia did.


The ending was enjoyable and I was on the edge of my seat for the last few chapters. It didn't resolve all the issues completely. As Cia says, there was no real black and white, the lines between good and bad were left blurry.
