I am a big fan of dystopian and love when someone writes one that hooks me from the very first page and keeps me captivated the WHOLE was through.
And for this to be a novella series intrigues me even more...
Unique and enthralling, Forced Autonomy is full of action packed suspense that will blow you away!!!

I am hooked and can not wait for book two to come out. I was immediately sucked into this world and I just have to know more! The characters fascinating and the suspense enthralling. The world itself became a character, adding to the depth and awesomeness of the story. Waiting for part two to come out is not going to be easy. I am just not that patient.Was this review helpful?

The mass, mandated lobotomies started thereafter. Those who protested or refused quickly met their end.
That's when we knew for sure-we were hopeless.
Felix's newest book, FORCED AUTONOMY, is a dystopian where the American government has been overtaken by the United Nations and people are forced to be made into zombie like slaves. And forced to work in factories making products for other countries now like China. How’s that for irony? But there are still others out there that never got the procedure and they are looking to take back their country and help those they find along the way.
I am such a huge fan of short story books. Especially when they are made into a series. Take for instance Rachel Higginson's LOVE AND DECAY series. Gah!! I absolutely cannot get enough of it. So when Felix brought to my attention that she was going to do one herself, I knew I would inhale it. This is Lila Felix we are talking about. Her ideas for her books are so freakishly amazing. She takes something so simple, tackles it, and then turns it into something no one has tried before. She is brilliant! And for her to be stepping out of her comfort zone of contemporary romance to venture into dystopian genre, is big!
This first book in the series is setting the ground work for what has happened and a glimpse at what is to come. Felix has made a futuristic world that could very well be our future if we are not careful.
Me being the romance junkie I am, was looking forward to the stuff that Felix is known for. The lady could write a romance out of anything. We all know this. Her books are addictive and you find you lose yourself in them and the romance. But (yes I said but), there isn't a whole lot in this one. And that is ok. I see that Felix has to set the stage. She has to form this into a story we are going to believe and want to return to each and every time she publishes it. So to rush in the romance at the very beginning could be author suicide. She will get us there. I saw hints and flirting in the story. Not all is lost. So hang tight.
Running towards something new, even if it was evil, made me hopeful-hope was my childhood friend and she hadn't paid me a visit in quite a while.
A quick read and a must read. I already love the characters and staking out a few I don’t. I am anxious for the next books of the series and what Felix has up her sleeve. Buckle up…this is going to be a wild ride!
