To graduate from Arcis, Anya is forced to compete in a series of increasingly cruel and punishing tasks. But when she almost dies playing one of the games, she realises there’s a darker motive behind the facility’s programme.

About the Author
Eliza Green tried her hand at fashion designing, massage, painting, and even ghost hunting, before finding her love of writing. She often wonders if her desire to change the ending of a particular glittery vampire story steered her in that direction (it did). After earning her degree in marketing, Eliza went on to work in everything but marketing, but swears she uses it in everyday life, or so she tells her bank manager. Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, she lives there with her sci-fi loving, evil genius best friend. When not working on her next amazing science fiction adventure, you can find her reading, indulging in new food at an amazing restaurant or simply singing along to something with a half decent beat.

Their hometown was poisoned by radiation, destroyed by rebels. Anya and her brother are relocated to Essention, Jason is put to work while Anya is sent to a very secretive education facility where each grade or level is actually up one floor. What Anya discovers is a world where “education” is more like re-conditioning and mental torture as the competition gets fierce and teens will do anything necessary to reach the next level. What happens when the final level is reached? Does this prove these teens are ready to join the adult world as productive members in high standing or have they be fooled into believing one lie after another that could turn them into cold-hearted monsters…or worse. Follow Anya as she goes from a clueless and terrified girl to a young woman of determination as she and many of her fellow students realize something is wrong, very wrong and they are nothing more than expendable lab rats. Is it possible that the resistance they have been taught are vile and evil monsters could just be the true heroes? As Anya’s heart is captured by a mysterious boy, she must decide to think for herself, not to take things at face value and that what lay on the ninth and final floor may be her worst nightmare come to life. Eliza Green’s FEEDER is pure dystopian bliss in all of its glory. Witness the uncertainty of a group of teens as they must compete to reach unknown the brass ring. Watch as they slowly come to terms with their situation and learn who they can trust and who will do anything to see them fail. Emotionally charged, sky-high tension and all the while, there is a shroud of mystery over the unknown that says just out of focus, just out of reach as teens are put to the test of their limits as pawns in the battle of good versus evil. Lies versus truths. How do they decide what is right? Ms. Green has created a world that immediately sucked me in and had me guessing how to get to the next level, who to trust and wonder who would break…not to mention WHY was this happening? I received this copy from Eliza Green in exchange for my honest review.
Dystopian Teen Novel. Anya and Jason watched their parents killed before them. Just in the nick of time, the government takes them off to Essention. Anya is picked for a special training program called Arcis in which she must go through 9 levels of training in order to graduate. To what? No one knows. Jason, meanwhile, works a normal skills job. There, he is recruited to work with the Rebels. At first, Anya hesitates to do well at Arcis. She just wants to get by. Then, she meets Dom Pavesi, and through him and in him, finds her motivation to rise through the levels. (Blech). Each level at Arcis tests a different skill and not everyone rising through the ranks. The twist is slowly revealed throughout the novel - and it's a doozy. You don't get the real horror of it though until the very end. But by then, I was a little bored. The novel took so long to get started that once it did, I just wanted the reveals and wasn't really into reading the details. The idea of the book is better than the execution, but I liked the book well enough to keep turning pages. Still, I'm interested in the rest of the trilogy, so the book couldn't have been that boring, right?
