The Undesirable (Undesirable, #1) - Sara Celi This review and others can be found at http://www.bookshtreasures.blogspot.com3.5 starsThe Undesirable is a very interesting book. I loved the world it was set in; a war-torn, dictator-run America. This is the first book in an intended series and you can tell as a lot of time is spent on world building and getting to know the characters and their situation. The pace of the book is fairly slow but there is an underlying tension that keeps you on tenterhooks throughout. The romance is lovely with both characters willing to risk everything and turn their backs on all they know just to be with the other forever. I love how much they go through just to try and help one another.This book is quite dark; the feel of Harrison Corners is like that of a war camp. The regime is strict and anyone who disobeys in anyway is killed as are those who are too old or unskilled to be useful. The story isn’t overly gory but nor is it for the faint hearted.The book starts at the mid-point before going back to the beginning. I really enjoyed how that was done as it changed the entire tone of the book; rather than finding out what happens it was all about discovering WHY things happened. In my opinion this is what made the book stand out.This Undesirable is not perfect as a few things were slightly confusing at times but it is worth reading and I think the series holds great potential. I am certainly looking forwards to reading the next book.*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, this has not affected my opinion in any way*
