Violet Storm by Anna Soliveres is a pacy YA dystopian novel that gives others of its kind a good, hard kick to the ribs. Satisfyingly violent, the story tells the tale of Aeva Storm: a tough, thuggish athlete trying to survive in a vividly ugly world. Star Fila-player Aeva is no stranger to vicious bloodsports, but when her whole world is turned upside down, even she feels the trepidation of the new world order trying to rise to power around her. An amazing discovery about her own origins and abilities leads Aeva into yet more danger as an epic battle for the fate of society looms overhead.
When people told me that The Hunger Games was violent, I was admittedly disappointed when I actually read the books. In Violet Storm, I feel that I have finally found the stark brutality that I was looking for. Author Anna Soliveres never shies away from the ugly truth of battle, making Aeva’s tale incredibly relatable and realistic despite its futuristic dystopian setting. She is a real young woman, the kind of heroine you can be proud of, with genuine strength and as many flaws as she has good points. The world in which Violet Storm is set is grisly and vivid, so much so that it evokes a visceral tightness in your jaw when you read Soliveres’s no-holds-barred prose. A fast paced and serious drama that is not for the faint of heart, but one that I would highly recommend to older teens and adult readers.
